This card magically colors itself as the slider is pulled up to show the message:
The basics of how to make this card is detailed in the 100 Movable Parts Cards CD from HOTP. It is called a Magic Window Slider Card, but I modified it with the Snowflake-shaped Window instead of a square one.

This card started with a focal made from glossy cardstock as described here. The background is embossed gold glimmer paper. The teal glimmer paper was cut and embossed using the MaryAnn cut & embossing folder. The focal was added with foam tape for dimension. Next I added gold liquid pearls. The gold ribbon finishes off the front of the card.
The inside is pretty simple - teal cut with Spellbinder's die, and matted with gold, gold embossed message & gold liquid pearls.
Spellbinder's Die Set - "Resplendent Rectangles" Stamp Sets - "Janie's Girls" by HOTP, "Unlisted" by Inkadinkadoo Black Stamp Pad Gel Pens
Today's card highlights the fun I had playing with my new stamp set from HOTP. This little girl with the signboard can be used for many messages. This one just happened to be for a birthday card (message from an Inkadinkadoo mini stamp set "Unlisted"). As you can see I cut her out using one of the Spellbinder's dies and then matted it using a piece cut from pink textured paper using the same die set. Then I colored her with gel pens, using the Dove blender to soften the edges.
