Happy Fathers Day

Good Morning everyone, thank you so much for all your amazing comments on my seahorse creation. 

Today Im sharing the card Ive made for my dad for Father's day, I've used the sizzix slider die again and gone with a farming theme.  

This first photo shows the slider panel closed.

6x6 White cardbase.  Ive used beautiful papers in blues & greens from B&M.  I first die cut the sections of the slider mechanism from my chosen papers, these B&M papers are ideal for this as a good weight but also light enough to fold easily.  I stamped my greeting on the panel that is revealed when you pull the slider part back.  I added an eyelet in the hole and added some green paper raffia to make it easier to pull the slider up. 

I cut a panel of the green leaf paper and layered onto a large piece of the blue paper and attached to the card front. I then attached the slider to the card front with foam tape. I attached the bull & cow chipboard after painting it black to the front part of the slider. 

From a scrap of yellowy inked card i die cut some flowers and die cut leaves from the green and blue papers. I then arranged these around my slider panel. I added some pale green enamel drops to the flower centres to finish. 

This photo shows the slider panel open to my (wonky) stamped greeting, i used 2 different sentiment stamps.

This photo shows the card laid down and the slider open so that the cattle are then stood up and sort of looks like they are in a field.  My yellow flowers could be buttercup's, celandine's, or primroses, alot of my dads fields are meadows so full of lots of flora & fauna.

Items Used:
Sizzix tropicool slider die set 662783
Tim Holtz funky foliage 663087
Cow&Bull fence chipboard
B&M Papers 12x12 'Seas the Day' & 'Botanical Bloom'
Justrite & clearly besotted sentiment stamps
Oxide inks twisted citron, lemonade & pistachio
