Critters on a Roller Coaster Card

After the dreary Spring days  with the threat of the virus, I decided I needed to make a cheerful Summer card.  When I think of summer fun my mind centers on the State Fair, so I eagerly opened my Lawn Fawn  'Coaster Critters' sets and plunged ahead.  Starting with the cloud dies, I made paper masks and used them to block off  blue Distress Oxide ink that I pounced on watercolor paper.  Next I sprayed the inked cloud paper with water and blotted more.  The stamped and colored coaster structure was adhered to the bottom of the cloud rectangle.  Then the curved Lawn Fawn die was cut just above the coaster. The cut out portion was then glued into the slot so the background would be consistent.  The critters and vehicles were stamped, colored with Copic pens and die cut.
 Then the little My Favorite Things disks were glued behind the vehicles and the disk was glue to a square of blue cloud paper which was slipped into the slot.  I love how the cars slide cheerfully up and down the curve of the coaster. For an interactive card, this one was fairly easy to create and definitely will bring a smile to the face of the recipient.  I may make another variation of this card since I have extra stamped and colored parts.  Please visit this site again to see what I create. Smiles!

Wow! What a cute and fun interactive slider card! That's neat that Lawn Fawn has a special die perfectly matched to cut the channel for the roller coaster. I also really like the airy cloud effect you achieved for your background by giving it a spritz of water... gotta try that!
