Fun Friday with Emily!!

Hello hello and welcome back to another Fun Friday!

Today's card is..well...FUN!
I have been indulging myself in every type of interactive card style I can think of lately.  They are just too much fun and so much more entertaining than just a flat card.

But I honestly have been scared of the magic slider style...the way I always saw this growing up was that the part you pull out of the card front actually has both the acetate and the colored image attached to it.  So it always made me so nervous to think about how to keep those images lined up properly so they didn't look silly when they were pulled out of the card.  And then all the wonderful examples started showing up where the images weren't on the slider, but right on the card!  How easy!  So I gave it a shot! :)
Isn't this wonderful!  So I totally meant to have the slider go out the side...but I got caught up in just making the card that it completely slipped my mind.  But it's okay because it still looks fabulous being a top slider!

I've used the With You image that is just so precious and created a dark watery background for this couple using some Distress Oxide colors.  I am in love with how Faded Jeans and Cracked Pistachio's just the perfect combo!

I made sure to do both the background card base and the slider insert in the same colors so that it is all seamless when the card isn't slid open.  But on the card base background, I stamped and white heat embossed a few heart clusters to mimic falling rain around the couple.  Yellow seemed like a nice fitting color for the umbrella, and I kept the rest of the colors in the couple pretty simple to coordinate with the colors I used on the background.

A simple sentiment banner finished off the whole card perfectly!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fabulous weekend! <3

What's all the Buzz about?
Sami Stamps introduced two new images last week called, Little Bumbles!

I am creating with "Daisy Bumble"!

You can buzz on over to Sami Stamps Etsy Store and see her here!

She is too, too cute!

Of course, i used a couple of dies from my stash and one thing i like to do is tone down the paper behind the image, so i used some vellum, embossed it and added a bit of sparkle paint!
