Mama Elephant’s Flip Slider die was the first time I had ever seen or heard of a waterfall element, so as soon as I got it, I had to use it!
I used Valentine papers from a Paper Studio 6x6 paper pad, along with some textured black floral paper from a Michael’s hot buy paper pad. My idea was to have a jar of candy hearts falling over and the slider die would simulate them spilling onto the table, incorporating the sentiments.
How You Bean? and the conversation heart add-on by Lawn Fawn were the sets used for this card. I first stamped out the group of hearts in the MISTI with antique linen distress ink, onto some white cardstock and colored them with alcohol markers. Then I put it back into the MISTI and stamped it again with Versamark ink, heat embossing it with white embossing powder. I heat embossed the jar onto some vellum; while the individual candy hearts were stamped onto different shades of red and pink cardstock.
I fussy cut all the images with Cutterbee detail scissors and went on to die cut the rest of the elements. For the main panel, I used a fancy scalloped rectangle die and layered that on top of an A2 sized rectangle with a layer of fun foam in between. I assembled the Flip Slider after a couple of tries; I didn’t take into account that using a one sided, direction oriented patterned paper had to be cut a certain way (LOL), good thing I had two papers with that pattern.
After that, I heat embossed some sentiments onto two of the slider panels and glued hearts to the rest. I cut a slit at the opening of the jar in order to have some hearts falling out and glued the jar on to top of the group of hearts toward the top of the card. Lastly, I glued the slider mechanism under that and attached the whole thing to a black cardbase.
