Cat in a Bag

Happy Friday!
Are y'all ready for a little paper engineering? This is a really fun "magic" slider card, I'm sure it's a lot harder to explain than it is do so I'll give you the link (it came from the Splitcoast resource files) and there are nice pics and a video to show you how to do it. Slider Card Link. I will say, I immediately thought the sentiment would be perfect for a split format and went looking for something to fit it. I think this layout works perfectly. As you can see, when closed, the two sentiment panels are hidden. When you pull on the tab at the top, they slide out simultaneously.
Of course when I made it, I didn't think about how hard it would be to take a pic of it. The camera just didn't want to focus on that tall an image so the top is a little fuzzy. You can see all the stamps I used, except for maybe the Birthday Song background. It's a little more visible in person. The candles were all cut out and added at the top. I started to put them at the bottom, then realized it kinda looked like they would set the bag on fire. Not good! I used an embossing folder on the bag part of the image and the finished (closed) size is just under 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
