Purple Rose Card

Hi friends sharing a simple card featuring a stamped rose , colored in shades of purple in support of  the " The Hop to Stop " Domestic Violence.

Symbolically I added a heart trapped under a fence just like many ladies trapped in an abusive relationship

But a victim can find courage and become free like the butterflies soaring over the fence and the beautiful rose growing up from under the fence and blooming free in the sky!

I hope you liked my simple card and do join Becca's The Hop to Stop

Supplies : Dies :  Winnie and Walter  Essentials Audrey Cutaways , Memory Box Rounded Fence , Xcut 3 D butterfly, Cheery Lynn  Butterfly, Cheery Lynn  Rose Leaf Strip

Christmas Pop Up and Slider Card

Christmas Pop Up Card 
       Hi friends, sharing a special Interactive Christmas Card which is my DT project for Rudolph Days Challenge  a special Challenge where you can enter your Christmas projects from the 25th to the 30th of each month year long!!
       My Christmas card has 3 pop up layers and Santa sliding across the snowy landscape in an aeroplane!

      The background  has snow falling in the deep purple sky, a cute smiling star and a playful Santa waving from his abode on the moon!

         I don't have a lot of stamps to create a background scene so made a simple snowy background by using a stencil and white gesso  on purple cardstock!
Stencilled background 
Gesso has a little bit more bulk than white paint so yeah I was happy with my snowfall!!

To create the snow laden trees , I used an embossing ink pen and WOW sparkling snow embossing powder on a Tattered Lace Tree Silhouette die cut and colored the embossed trees with mowed lawn Distress Inks  .
Christmas Trees Landscape
The snowy mountain with the trees were popped up in front of the snowy background .

And in front of that I added a cute little cozy looking cottage with a snow-laden rooftop!

On the embossed roof I added glittery "snow"!

        Before I got my die cutting machine I used to hand-cut the apertures for my slider cards...now there are dedicated "slider dies" but since I didn't have one of those, I improvised and created a nice curved aperture using Spellbinders border dies I already had. I used the technique of partial die cutting[ also seen in this post:  Partial Die Cutting tips] so that the die wouldn't cut all the way.
Slider Mechanism
I added Santa to a  piece of double sided foam tape which was then stuck on a circle of thick cardstock to form a slider.

And my Santa actually spins as he zooms across the snowy mountains!
