JAI 280 - Just add glimmer - Dove of peace pop-up slider Christmas card

It's new challenge time at Just Add Ink & this week the lovely Nikki has challenged us to Just Add Glimmer. No occasion says glimmer to me more than Christmas & glimmer also means a special card so this is what I made using some of my fave new Christmas goodies from the new Holiday Catalogue.
It's a pop-up slider card & my latest fancy fold obsession. My gorgeous friend Kellie showed me this one by Brianna Thompson with great tutorial & I was hooked. I converted Brianna's measurements to suit our Aussie A4 card, then used it with my class lovelies last month (a different design which I'll share with my template, next post). It looks tricky but it was really easy to do. The only cutting & scoring required is on the patterned paper piece.
Like most fancy folds, it starts off looking like a regular card...
...then pull up the ribbon, the dove pops up & reveals a secret panel & tag.
The pics don't show how glimmery the card is. The dove (& secret sentiment) is silver embossed, then coloured with a clear Wink of Stella glitter pen then attached with some silver thread swirls. It really shimmers in the light. The peace sentiment is red glimmer paper too. Maybe you can see the glimmer better in this pic (click to see a bigger pic).
Brianna's card didn't have an inside opening - I guess you'd write on the back panel - but I wanted to make a regular opening card so the recipient could leave it horizontal or hang it on a string (which is what I do at home). I think an unpopped version of the card would still look pretty. Anyhoo, here's what I did inside.
Well that's all for me for now. I hope you like my glimmery creation. Remember to check out all the team's creations here & join in with the challenge too

I'll share my other card & the template to make my A4 card version next time. Thanks for visiting today & come back soon. I'll leave you with a combined pic of the project to pin if you'd like. Leave a comment too if you've enjoyed my project or or if you have any questions about it.
Inky wishes, Di
