Each design team member will choose on Monday one person that commented on their blog to receive the digi stamp they used - FOR FREE!!! The digi I was given is called ELFSPARKLE  and it was designed by Sherri Baldy; and I think it's so adorable.
I love Sherri Baldy stamps because her line art is detailed, but clean and easy to colour.

And now meet ElfSparkle!

Do you see the layers and gap where I cut out a 'track' for my slide? The key thing to do is to make the opening wide enough that the slider glides easily, but not so big that the slider won't stay in the track.

The card is very sturdy and is great as a 'table-top' card.

I added Flock to emphasize fur and snow.

Notice Rudolph and his present are at the top of the 'slide'

Notice Rudolph and his present are at the bottom of the 'slide'
Kids have a lot of fun sliding the image back and forth.

Side Pocket is perfect for placing a note, money, Gift Card, etc.

This is a card of many parts. I love how differently it looks depending on which flaps are open.  

A full tutorial on how I made this card will be available this week on my blog.  If you become a Follower and sign up for my e-mails, you will be notified when it has been posted.
I will show how to make the penny slider and how I deconstructed an 'Always' sample holder to make this card.

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the Hop!
