Slider card





I had this Christmas card from last year where you could place a picture inside and it became a frame...but I decided I needed to make it into something else! So I put new paper on the outside, placed cardstock in the frame with a Merry Christmas greeting, and created a slider for the beautiful Tilda! Just pull the ribbon and out she pops, revealing the Christmas greeting! The stars on the corners of the frame anchor her in there and create a pretty embellishment too! Voila :D
I've also attached pictures of my workspace...you can see where the inspiration comes from!
Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
