I created an interactive sliding birthday card using the adorable otters from Lawn Fawn’s Year Five stamp set:

To create my card I started by watercoloring the background with distress inks. I let the watercolors dry and then die-cut them with the new Hillside Cover die by Mama Elephant. I love that the hills on the die are cut so that you can tuck things inside them! I decided to use the hills to create waves for my otters.
Next I colored my otters with copic markers and die-cut them with my Scan N Cut. I also altered the sentiment by shaping it on my Misti to fit around one of the waves. I heat-embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and then adhered the otters in the waves. Finally I arranged one of my otters vertically and adhered a long cardstock strip to the back of the otter. The other end of the strip hangs below the bottom of the card and when it’s pushed the otter peeks out from the wave with his birthday gift! For ease of mailing you can fold the strip behind the card and include a note to the recipient explaining how to move the card!
