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!
