Stay Golden with Tanya

Hello friends! Shall we play with some sassy old ladies, and try out a new action card? I think we shall! Stay Golden is such a fun set, and it pairs perfectly with all things tropical!

This is a double slider card, and the front is lovely, but pretty unassuming. Then when you pull on the tabs, it kicks it up a few notches!

I did make a video showing how to make this card, and it also shows 2 other cards made with the same design, but different papers.

Measurements for slider components:

Pocket Pieces: cut two at 3¾" x 4½"  (9.5 cm x 11.4 cm), score the 3¾" (9.5 cm) edge at 3½" (9 cm)

Inside Slider Base: cut one at 3-3/8" x 4¼" (8.5 cm x 10.8 cm), create notches in the 3-3/8" (8.5 cm) end, 3/8" in and from each side.

Slider Strip: one at 2¼" (5.7 cm) x at least 10" (25.5 cm) long

Slider Panels: two at 2¾" x 4" (7 cm x 10.2 cm)

The sentiment on the front is stamped on a piece of white card stock sponged with a bright green ink, then spattered with water. A stitched oval vellum piece is behind the sentiment to add a little more fancy.

The sentiment on the inside is just perfect!! Audra from Kindred Stamps did a marvelous job with this set!

The leaves on the sides are stamped tone on tone on this very pale gray card stock.

The mother daughter duo is on the left hand panel. They were colored with Copics. Here is the list of what I used:

Hair: W1, W2

Skin: E00, E30, R20

Mom dress: RV29, R59 and C1, 0

Glasses: W5

Bag: W2, W3

Shoes for both: C5, C7

Daughter Clothes: C1, C2, C5, C7

Bangle: Y15

And the two sassy pseudo-sisters! Here are their Copic colors for this card:

Sister on the left:

Hair: W1, E50, E70 (kind of a weird combo. On the other two cards I used the same as the mom/daughter)

Dress/shoes: G21, G85

Sister on the right:

Hair: E30, E31, E33

Dress/shoes: R02, R05

Skin for both: E00, E30, R20

And there it is, all put together! I think I have found another favorite interactive card technique. And that there will be quite a few sassy old ladies in my stash of cards.
