Piles of Smiles by Bri Firth

Hello Ai Fans - Bri here! Today I am sharing a bubbly card design featuring the 4738 - Duck Stackers Set, which is part of Ai's Stacker collection. This project is perfect for Ai's current challenge, "Zoo Crew", as it features a pile of adorable ducks! For more details on how I created this interactive slider card keep reading below.

Before we get to the crafty details, I wanted to let you all know this is my last post as a DT member. I have enjoyed sharing all of my wonderful projects with you and will miss you dearly. Remember, you can always find me on my personal blog where I will still share new Ai projects occasionally. 

First, I used the Slider Die to create the 2" x 5" frame for the pull tab mechanism. Next, I traced the open space of the frame onto the white cardstock so I could line all the ducks within the opening. 

I stamped the image and colored the ducks with Copic markers. The colors I used are listed at the end of this post. Once I finished coloring the image, I used tear tape to attach the slider frame to the backside of cardstock with the ducks on it. 

I made the pull tab 1 7/8" wide and 5 1/4" tall. I used a bubble stencil with Broken China and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide inks to create the background on the front panel and on the pull tab. Once the ink dried, I stamped the "Pull Here" sentiment and arrow onto the top of the pull tab in black pigment ink. The pull tab moves easily within the slider frame.

Next, I die cut the front bubble panel with the 3 3/4" x 5" Rectangle Double Stitched Die. I matted the die cut rectangle with teal and yellow cardstock to create the A2 sized card front. I used foam tape to attach the stitched panel to the card front to create extra dimension and to make it easier to grab the pull tab. 

Then I used the teal cardstock again to die cut a circle from the Circle Double Stitched Dies set large enough to fit the sentiment. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. 

To finish the card I added iridescent embellishments to coordinate with the bubble background. I just love how this interactive card turned out! So cute!

Hope you enjoyed my crafty inspiration!
