I just love this paper! It's all romantic and scrumptious..just right for a Valentine card. I used a slider base for this card and one sheet of 12x12 double- sided patterned paper from Making Memories J'tadore collection.I added a punched border across the bottom of the card, a floral arrangement, and on the slider, a fabulous harp. There are some very thin strings on this harp and every one cut out just fine, but I think that if I'd cut it any smaller they would all have gone 'ping!'
The harp, cut from pink mirri and shadowed with green cardstock, was adhered with foam pads to a panel on the slider rather than just adhered straight onto the mechanism. I added a tiny rose for extra embellishment to the harp, and a green satin bow to the panel. A smattering of pearls and some tiny pink musical notes cut from pink mirri completes the front of the card.
Inside the card, under the slider, I added the sentiment, computer generated onto Safmat.
If you are wondering where you write your greeting on this type of card, I added a 3 1/4" by 3" piece of plain white cardstock to the slider just below the 'pull'. You can make these slider cards as regular cards by making the slider mechanism separately, slightly smaller than your card, and adhering it to the front leaving a coloured border all round, then you can write inside your card instead of on the slider. Your choice!
