A Fairy Slider Postcard

Hello, don't you just love making postcards? Today I will show you how to make a postcard with a fairy that actually moves across the page! Isn't that exciting? It is not as hard as it sounds. Follow the simple steps below to make your own. 




You can buy these and other stamps at Blank Page Muse and use the discount code BPMDtSuzette2019  to get 15% off. Offer expires on July 31st, 2019. 


Other supplies used:
  •  4x6" piece of black cardstock.
  • 1.5" x 6" piece if black cardstock
  • white pigment ink stamp pad
  • 1/2" x 6" piece of white cardstock (for the sentiment)
  • blank ink pad
  • white cardstock for fairy etc.
  • embossing powder
  • heat gun
  • craft knife
  • foam tape
  • glue

 Begin by stamping the background of the card.


Stamp the same flower on a piece of cardstock the same width of the above card and about 1 1/2" high. Stamp your sentiment.


Stamp, emboss and cut out your fairy.


Cut out a rectangle approx 2/5"  (0.4") high. This is where we will place our slider. Using this as a reference, place foam tape on the card exactly where you will stick this.


Cut a strip of cardstock to fit between the strips of foam tape. It needs to be about an inch wider than the card so you will have a handle. Attach a small strip of cardstock to the fairy and then use a piece of foam tape to add it to your strip of cardstock. This is how you will move your fairy. 


Now glue in place the sentiment and attach the remaining piece of stamped cardstock to the base of the card, covering the rectangular slider.




Pull the handle to move the fairy.
