Pixie Pals Seesaw Slider

Hello! One of my favorite things from the Spring 2020 Collection from LDRS Creative is the Seesaw Slider Die Set! And it seems like a lot of you like it, too!
I started this card with one of my FAVORITE stencils - the Rainy Day Stencil. It's perfect for scene building! I used new Marina Madness Hybrid Ink and blended five rows of puffy clouds using the top border of the Rainy Day Stencil. I switched to the new Prickly Pear Perfection Hybrid ink and blended off the bottom of the Rainy Day Stencil to create grass. I used Extreme Clean Stamp Cleaner to clean the ink off of my stencil so that it looks good as new! I ended up covering most of the blended grass in the finished card, but that's okay! A little bit peeks out and it's great dimension! I die cut the mechanism to create the Seesaw Slider from white cardstock and from the front of my ink blended card front. To see just how I put together the mechanism watch the YouTube video above or any of the others on the LDRS Creative YouTube channel. It's so easy! A simple pull tab mechanism hides behind the scene and allows one element to move up while the other moves down.
I decided I wanted to have cute little fairies, so I stamped out all of my images from the Pixie Pals stamp set with Raven Hybrid Ink and colored them with alcohol markers. I just love the little fairies and the mushroom house! I die cut all of the images with the Pixie Pals die set and started arranging them on the front of my card. I attached two of the fairies onto the moving Seesaw Slider mechanism so that they fly into the air. I even added a watering can to the one on the right so that she can fly up and water the flowers! I made sure that as I added my images nothing interfered with the moving Seesaw Slider mechanism. I decided to add a die cut border from the In the Grass Die Set and popped that up with foam to keep everything dimensional. 
I finished off the card by stamping a cute little sentiment from the Pixie Pals stamp set and trimming it into a banner. I added it to the bottom of my card. I hope you've enjoyed this Seesaw Slider tutorial! I'll see you soon!
