You're SPEC-tacular - Your Next Stamp

Hi lovelies ! Today I want to share with you this card that I had so much fun making. It is an interactive card which features the recent release from Your Next Stamp - Spec-tacular Phoebe and Friends stampset. I love that it comes with many spectacle frames sized to fit the adorable Phoebe and her little cute critter friends. Adding those spectacles just make everything look so much cuter ! Here is what I've created. Be sure to click on a link at the bottom of this blog to view a short video clip of this card in action !

First, I stamped the images at the center of an standard A2 sized white card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, masking Phoebe before stamping the bunny and the teddy bear like so.

Using another white card stock, I die cut an oval window using the third largest of YNS stitched oval die. This is my top panel. Then, I colored in my images using Copic markers. 

As the top panel looked plain,  I've decided to decorate it with red polka dot pattern paper that matches the images. For some details and interest, I added a red oval frame using the same YNS stitched oval dies,  a red bow using YNS Bow-tiful Little Bows die and cut two red thin strips for the top and bottom of the card which gave it a more complete look.

For the slider panel, I stamped the spectacles onto some plain white sticker label and colored in using copic markers. As I do not have the co-ordinating dies, I fuzzy cut them out using scissors and my x-ecto knife. To make the slider panel, I cut a piece of acetate as shown in the blueprint below.

Orange shapes are the single layer foam tape. Red lines the shape of the piece of acetate that I cut. Red rectangle piece of red card stock taped to the bottom of the acetate panel.

To affix the spectacles that I had fuzzy cut out earlier, first, I slide the acetate panel all the way down, position the spectacles over the images and stick them down. I used glossy accents to add shine and dimension to the spectacles. Finally, I white heat embossed the sentiments onto the red piece of card stock on the bottom of the acetate and the card is finished! 😁
