Hester is using an image from the beautiful charity set created recently by our talented Whimsy Stamps artist Crissy Armstrong. This set is available for a limited time and has been created to help all the animals affected by the Australian wildfires. The set consists of 5 animal images and 1 coordinating sentiment sheet. All proceeds from the sale of this digital stamp set will benefit WIRES - Emergency Fund for Wildlife. This set is only available for a limited time. When you purchase you are helping care for the animals affected by the wildfires in Australia.

Hester has created a beautiful design that echoes the famous
Ayers Rock or Uluru near Australia's Alice Springs

Here is the beautiful finished card design that Hester created which uses the Whimsy Stamps
No-See Kinetic Basics Die Set to slide the Kangaroo and her Joey back and forth across the card.

What you need:
 Cardstock - light blue, red-brown, green and yellow ochre
Whimsy Stamps No-See Kinetic Basics Die Set
Whimsy Grass and Cloud Edger Die Set
Love for Australia Set - Digital Stamp
Foam Tape
Score Board
Cutting Machine
Optional: Stitched Border Trio Dies or Pierced Border Trio Dies

From the light blue cardstock cut out 21 x 15.50 cm and fold it in half. Cut a red-brown mountain 4.5 x 13 cm. From the green cardstock cut a 5 x 15.5 cm piece and cut the grass edge at the top. 1.5 cm from the bottom you make the opening for the slide with the basic die set. Add the yellow ochre 5 x 15.5 cm which you’ve cut out a wave on top. You could use the Stitched Border Trio Dies for this, or the Pierced Border Trio Dies.

Glue the mountain to the grass. Cut everything out of the basic die set. Put the foam tape on the back. If you put it together you can see if you need more tape. Attention: you should not stick tape on the side where you slide. Now colour your kangaroo digital stamp.

Stick the mountain with the grass on the card. Pay attention when you put it together. Watch out that you don’t stick to the slider. Before you proceed, see if the card slides properly. I put a bigger square on it to have a smoother slide. 

You now need to cut the slider element with one hole in it. There are some folding marks on it. Fold it two times and stick the reverse side on your slider. Now stick the yellow ochre panel on top allowing the folded tap to sit over it. Glue your coloured kangaroo onto the folded tab.


Now your card is ready and your layers should look like this when you look from the side. Enjoy creating your own version of this fun slider card using the fabulous Whimsy Stamps Kinetic Die Elements
