Hello! I am finally back after a break… and I have one more interactive card video for you. (My next few videos will share techniques.) I show how to make both double slider cards and “kiss” cards. These special cards offer the recipient a fun surprise!

Today’s cards have unique interactive features. Although these can be done without special dies, I am using two die sets I recommend: My Favorite Things Double Slider Loop Dies (SSS | MFT) and My Favorite Things Trifold Slider Dies (SSS | MFT). These sets make these cards so much easier and the sets are affordable. (Many interactive die sets are pricey.)
My first two cards feature the My Favorite Things Double Slider Loop Dies (SSS | MFT). These simple dies can be used to make a variety of double slider cards where you pull a tab and an element moves in the other direction.
The first example has an elegant feel when you initially open it. I used the Altenew Peaceful Wreath Stamp Set (SSS | ALT) for the wreath, the Altenew Holiday Bow Stamp Set (SSS | ALT) for the bow, and the Concord & 9th Very Merry Stamp Set (SSS | C9) for the sentiment.
And thanks to the My Favorite Things Double Slider Loop Dies (SSS | MFT) feature built into the card… when you pull the tab, a Simon Says Stamp Picture Book Deer pops up! Such a fun surprise. Be sure to watch the video to see how to use the My Favorite Things Double Slider Loop Dies (SSS | MFT)!
Here is a close look at some details I added. I used Glossy Accents on the berries and a shimmer pen on the bow.
My next card also uses the My Favorite Things Double Slider Loop Dies (SSS | MFT)… but this time to reveal a surprise gift card. The cute images are from the WPlus9 Cookies & Cocoa Stamp Set (SSS | WP9) and the sentiment is from the Concord & 9th Holiday Cheer Tag Stamp Set (SSS | C9)… and I created that awesome background with the WPlus9 Knit Patterns Stamp Set (SSS | WP9).
By the way, I heat embossed the marshmallows and icing on the cookies with Hero Arts White Satin Pearl Embossing Powder for the perfect shine… along with Ranger Carnation Red Embossing Powder. I also added clear embossing to the cup. The placement of of the images on this card was inspired by Dawn Woleslagle of WPlus9! Check out her cute card HERE.
My last card is what I call a “kiss” card. When you open it, two images come together to kiss! I used the My Favorite Things Trifold Slider Dies (SSS | MFT) for this and it makes it SO much easier than any other method I have used in the past. When closed, you see images from the Avery Elle Party Pals and Banner Bits Stamp Set.
