For my card today, I made a fun hidden slider card. It features the adorable BB Happy Hippos and the Double Slider Loop Slots Die-namics.

To begin, I Copic colored the stamped images from BB Happy Hippos and cut them out with their coordinating dies.

I inked the background panel using Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide with the Cloud Stencil. On the panel, I used the Double Slider Loop Slots Die-namics and made the mechanism that allows the hippo with the balloons to move up and down. For a detailed explanation on how the die works and the steps to build the mechanism, you can watch the Youtube video by Karolyn HERE.

In front of the background panel, I foam mounted the cloud panel that I die-cut using one of the dies from Stitched Cloud Edges Die-namic. 

Then, I adhered two grass panels that I die-cut using Gumdrop Green Card Stock and Grassy Hill Die-namics. 

To finish, I stamped the sentiment from BB Happy Hippos and adhered the colored images as shown. 

I hope you'll play along with us for a chance to win a $50 MFT gift voucher. I'm looking forward to seeing all the fun interactive cards. For more information, visit the Card Challenges Blog!
