MFT 2018 Card Design Superstar contest

I had a little time this weekend to create an entry or two for the 2018 Card Design Superstar contest by My Favorite Things. There's absolutely no way I'd ever attempt the Coloring Virtuoso category because those skills I DO NOT have...but maaaayyyybe I could squeak by with an Innovation Master entry. :) All those fancy cards are not my typical area of comfort but I really like stretching my abilities and trying new things so I gave it a shot. 

I used the Double Slider Loop Slots from the September release to create the basis of my card. The two birds are friends and when you pull the tab the one bird brings the heart closer to the other. They wish they lived closer. Awww. Let's ignore the fact that they are BIRDS and can FLY wherever they want, whenever they want. Details schmetails. 

The tree branch was hand cut and stamped with a background stamp, as was the grass. The sky was die cut twice and layered together. One bird is adhered to the acetate strip (I followed directions straight from the MFT site), while the other is popped up with foam tape. Some details were added using Copic markers to the wings and tails. I incorporated some sparkle and shine with glitter on the pink heart and a few clear sequins. There's even a dab of sparkle in the center of each sequin. For the sentiment, I used a crisp black ink and clear embossing powder. I really need the Interactive Labels set so I don't have to write PULL myself. ;) The entire panel is adhered with two layers of foam tape to a white A2 card base. 

This will be a fun card to send to a far away friend. Interactive cards are just too cute!
