After a long break (I had a lovely summer holiday back home in Taiwan) and a good repair (our computer is now fixed and runs very fast), I am now back in touch with blogland. Although I have not been blogging for a while, that does not mean I have stopped making cards and being creative. Now I have more cards than ever to share with you all! I have also been reading a lot of your blogs so I am "secretly" following the card making trend.
Well, enough of me talking. Hope this card will be a good start. It is a card which I made for my dad's birthday not long ago. The tea pot and tea cup stamped images are from Elzybells. The sentiment, tea bag and tea cup (on the envelope) images are from TPC Studio- Coffee Cafe clear stamps set.
This is a mechanical slider card which was featured in Quick Card made easy magazine issue 91. I just love cards that move!! The actual mechanism is not that hard to follow and assemble but it took me a while to figure out how to make it to rotate in the direction I wanted. But I did it in the end, hooray!
Here is a close up of the card. See a hot cuppa tea just being poured?! I just love how it moves!!
Now I bet you can't wait to see it in motion. So here it is, demostrated by my daugter by pulling the slider to make the tea pot pour.
I hope you enjoyed my first comeback post today and it will not take me too long to share another card with you again.
Have a good evening.
