{Spotlight Project} Cornelia Makes a Dino Slider

Hi, everyone. Cornelia here today with a tutorial for a slider card.

My supplies:

I started out heat embossing and water coloring the cute little dino on water color paper. I thought he would be extra cute with googly eyes.

I selected a turquoise piece of card stock as my background (A2 format) and dry embossed a slightly smaller piece of white card stock with an embossing plate. 

Punched two 1-inch holes in it and cut a 1 1/2-inch strip of white card stock and dry embossed it as well.

I cut the paper in between the holes. I centered my paper strip and placed two strips of foam tape adjacent to the strip - just a tad away from it, so it can move freely.

I marked with pencil where the opening is going to be and stamped and heat embossed the sentiment.Mounted the dino with foam tape onto the strip and trimmed the left sided margin of the strip so it does not show anymore.

Sorry for the blurry pic, but that is the backside before I put everything together.

Here is the assembled card: I made some additional changes - gave the dino some white dots. Glued on the googly eyes.

and colored in the BIRTHDAY with Copics.

Hope you liked this! See you in two weeks and perhaps then I'll have my last installment of my little stencil class ready by then.
