Happy St. Patrick's Day! Make A Wish ...

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Today, I am sharing with you a pull tab slider card for this green festivity with a mix of a birthday surprise. 
Pull up on the slider tab and a birthday cake appears.  
To create this card, I first started with die cutting the rainbow and stamping out the yeti, presents, birthday cake and sentiment images and then heat set it with clear embossing powder. Using copic markers, I coloured the images and then added glossy accents for some additional depth.  The next set of images: the hat, bow tie, pot and clover leafs I used my cricut explore machine to help me cut them out of cardstock. 
Afterwards, I worked on the panel that was die cut from the largest stitched rectangle die. I ran the stitched hill die through the big shot on the panel and then again on a piece of paper to create a mask. Then I used distress inks to blend the panel making sure I masked the bottom to ink blend the sky and masked the top portion to ink blend the grass. 
Next, I cut out the sliding channel with a craft knife and die cut four small circles. I doubled up the circles by gluing them together so that it would be thicker and stable. I adhere both circles together with a piece of thin double sided tape and taped it vertically in the middle so that the sides could still open. The open sides will be slotted in the edges of the channel so that it can move freely up and down. I glued the cake onto the front of the circle and attached the pull tab on to the back. 
After attaching the pull tab, I stamped the word pull up and glued the four-leaf clover on it. Then, I adhered the pot in its spot with double side foam tape so that the cake had clearance to slide freely. I attached the rest of the images on the card and finished it off with wink of stella on all the falling clovers and some small sequins. 
I hope you enjoyed this card as much I had fun making it. Have a Happy Friday!
