I do like interactive cards! I loved the idea of pulling the tab...
... and watching my Easter bunny sail across the sky spreading his magic into the grass! My grass was stamped with the large image from Just Believe and I added little punched flowers and half-hidden Easter eggs.
The eggs are from the Everybunny pot plant and were coloured with markers before being cut out with my sharp paper snips.
Here's a close up of that wonderful balloon image. It can be used all the year round not just for Easter - just add a circle of designer paper as I did in this card.
This technique for making these slider cards is so easy: I used the word window punch to make the slide-along aperture and cut a strip to fit behind it. The sky was sponged in next, both on the front panel and on the strip so they blended in together. With the strip in the closed position, I added a dimensional into the aperture and attached my cut out balloon. After decorating the bottom of the card, I put my card together with snail adhesive. TIP: It's a good idea to enclose the strip with adhesive on three sides but DO keep it about a centimetre away from the edge of the strip so that it doesn't interfere with the sliding mechanism and DON'T seal the bit where the strip comes out of the card for pulling!

Don't be deceived into thinking that this card would only go down well with tots; my daughter was entertaining a roomful of hulking great teenage boys the other day and they must have spent half an hour cooing over this card and making the bunny fly to and fro across the sky! And when I rewarded them with juice and biscuits, they didn't turn those down either! Teenagers do get a pretty bad press this days but, I have to say, we know some lovely ones!
Have a wonderful Easter won't you. I'll be taking a few days off but will be back in time for next week's Three Minute Thursday. Hope to see you then,
