penny slider card
Challenge 20 on Bah humbug is to make a kinetic card - I thought this would be a doddle as I made several of these penny slider cards last year............. First problem was to find an image - the santa I used last year was borrowed, and no way was I going to drive around 30 miles to borrow it again, so I thought I would use a diecut snowflake - the penny was larget than the centre of the snowflake, so I had to add a smaller one behind the big one to hide the penny - then I absentmindedly glued the bit with the slider slot in it to the blue card - before I had cut the matching hole in the blue card. As I had used the strong red dst, no way was it going to come off, so I had to operate with a pokey tool, and the smallest scissors I had (plus a few choice words) and eventually managed to hack a hole - fortunately it doesn't show from the front! The dp is from the Seasons greetings cd from Chocolate Baroque, on both the top and base blue card, so it shows through the slot in the front.
