After the last challenge at The Male Room I got carried away with making cards that move, my friend Val showed me how to make this one but you can find a You Tube video for it here. I've also used the goregous Easter papers and images from MHK Designs.
The bottom of the card has an arch cut out using the bottom of the egg die, this is where the pull tab will sit.
The bunny images were printed on card suitable for alcohol markers although there is very little colouring involved. Egg shaped dies were used to cut out the images after colouring and then the edges were coloured with a yellow Distress ink.
When the internal movement cards were added to the ribbon slide mechanism it was important to line them up as they would be when the card is closed. I used some wide satin ribbon as that is what I had to hand, wide florist ribbon works just as well.
The outside of the card blank is covered with Easter paper from MHK Designs, the pull tab also has some of this paper on it.
Double sided foam tape is added to both sides of the inner frame around which the ribbon mechanism sits. This tape allows depth for the free movement of the slider so make sure it sits comfortably inside the card and moves freely before you stick it shut, how do I know this is important?....don't ask, let's just say we all learn by trial and error!
So this fortnights challenge at The Male Room is an Easter project for a man or boy, I do hope you'll join us with your creation.
