Patriotic Heart and Soul- Trust in the Lord

Hi Friends!

I hope all of you are having a fabulous week so far!  This card was designed for the Splitcoaststampers F4A330 “Spring into Action” Challenge (see details here and gallery here as well as the Just Add Ink JAI316 "Just Add Stripes" Challenge along with my second entry for the Paper Players PP299 Color Challenge.

I love patriotic colors this time of year and I decided to create a Slider Card (see the Splitcoaststampers tutorial here) using Our Daily Bread Designs stamps. 

If you have not had a chance to check out the above challenge sites, I hope you will find time to do so- such inspiration from all!

To create this card:

front view with sliders closed
All of the Our Daily Bread Design (ODBD) images were colored with Stampin’ Write Markers- Dapper Denim, Cherry Cobbler and Smoky Slate (for the “white” stripes).  

Several ODBD sets were used- Stars & Stripes Heart (large heart on front), Heart and Soul (small heart and medium heart at top of upper slider portion), Old Flag Background (background on lower slider), How Sweet the Sound (sentiment on lower slider), Scripture Collection 3 (sentiment on upper slider) and Ornate Borders Sentiments (sentiment on front of slider).
Sliders partially open

After stamping the images and cutting/ scoring out all of the components of the slider card (per the tutorial), the large and small hearts along with the eyelet heart border were die cut/embossed using Big Shot with the ODBD Ornate Hearts die, the sentiment using the ODBD Double Stitched Circle Die and the corners were rounded with the Envelope Punch Board.

Sliders fully open
The Whisper White background was embossed with the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder (SU!).

Since this was my first slider card in many years, it was a bit time-consuming for me to assemble and also difficult to photograph (the slider parts look better IRL :-)).

Stamp Sets: Heart and Soul, Stars & Stripes Heart, Ornate Borders Sentiments, How Sweet the Sound, Scripture Collection 3, Old Flag Background (all Our Daily Bread Designs)

Ink/Mediums: Stampin’ Write Markers- Dapper Denim, Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate

Paper: Whisper White, Dapper Denim, Cherry Cobbler

Accessories: Big Shot™, ODBD Ornate Hearts Dies, ODBD Double Stitched Circle Dies, Lucky Stars Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Silver Cord, 1 ¼” Circle Punch, 1 ¼” Square Punch, 5/8” Cherry Ribbon (from my stash)

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- if you have the time, come play along with us at the Free For All Challenges:-) Hugs and have a great week!

Such a beautiful and creative card, Julie. The large heart is a fantastic focal image, and I really like the added touch of a small heart on the top pull-out section. Gorgeous details. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week.

So many great details on your card. The slider aspect is wonderful - but I love the small details - the star embossed background, glittery images and tiny matching heart. Chantell JAI
