Flying Kite Card

If you haven't yet, please take a second to enter my 400 follower giveaway!

I have a super fun card to share with you today!! I made this card that has a moving slider!!  MY FIRST EVER!

Here is my card.  It features Heidi Grace papers (all the pattern papers). Can you see that little pull tab on the top right? Were you wondering what the slit in the clouds is for?? That's my moving parts.  When you pull the tab, the kite flies across the sky!!!

See how the kite moved! I really wish I had the equipment to film this card, it was super fun to put together and to make the parts move!

Here is my simple sentiment.  This card would be great for just about anything! :) I adore that little white flower strip too. It was a wired ribbon (with flowers on both edges) that I cut in half and hot glued to the grass layers.

I used a scrap of wire for the kite string and some orange and green striped twine for the kite ribbons.

Before I forget... here is a free download for you:

Heidi Grace pattern paper
generic green and white card stock
Bridal Inspirations flower ribbon from Joann's
twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon
Studio G glitter glue (for the flower centers)
Floral wire 
blue, green and orange ink + daubers to ink all the edges
Cricut and Gypsy

Cricut Cartridges:
Create a Critter : all three cloud styles
Plantin Schoolbook : the rectangle to form the card base
Nate's ABCs : Kite
Paper Doll Dress Up : grass layer
