The Neighborly Narwhal swims along with one of the new Slider Grooves on a birthday card today.  September is a popular month for birthdays - I think this slider would help celebrate that special day for anyone you know!  Hi, Jean Okimoto here, with a versatile design that would also work on a thank you, hello or thinking-of-you card.

Cut Neighborly Narwhal from dark gray and white cardstock.  Attach a scrap of black cardstock behind the eye hole.  Assemble the narwhal.

Cut the 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" Wrapped Stitch Rectangle from a Pool Notecard half.  Cut the Slider Groove.  Stamp the greeting - from the Watching the World Bloom Clear Stamp Set - with Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers.  Heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.   The words are actually straight - curve the flexible stamp to match the path of the groove.

Use two 5mm pompoms on a strip of cardstock to attach the slider  - like we did in  my previous slider card.  Push the pompoms through the groove and attach them to the back of the narwhal.  

Attach the rectangle to a Pool Notecard with narrow strips of foam tape.  

Cut Seaweed Stalks from green and coral cardstock.  Cut a second short green stalk and trim the bottom a bit before attaching it to the background.  Add blue gem stickers.

Sliders usually require extra postage and special handling...but your thoughtfulness and creativity will be appreciated!
