MFT August Birthday Project Challenge--Gift Cards

Choosing a gift card your recipient will appreciate serves the dual purpose of
easing the stress of shopping and allows the recipient the joy of selecting the
perfect gift As a cardmaker, the presentation is just as thoughtful as the
gift itself. Join our team in sharing creative ideas for housing gift cards
in your card design.

I decided to use MFT's Slider Surprise Die-namics that hides a gift card
 and was surprisingly simple to construct thanks to Stephanie's video.

After die-cutting the slider pieces from white card stock, I stenciled a wavy
ocean pattern over it and added a sandy bottom. An assortment of fish were
white embossed and inked with Distress inks then die cut with the matching
Die-namics. The slider panel was assembled behind and the sentiment and "pull"
were stamped on the respective

I pulled on the mechanism and added the gift card inside, using a small glue dot
to keep it in place. The bottom looked a little plain so I added the seaweed and coral,
 making sure not to interfere with the slider.
