Lawn Fawn Hedgehugs Slider card

Well Hello there!

Have you ever had the idea for a card and then had to purchase the stamp set in order to make it happen? I'm guessing I'm not the only one, lol!

Fortunately I didn't have to spend and absolute fortune as Hedgehugs by Lawn Fawn is only tiny. Small, but perfectly formed in my opinion!

I wanted to join in with two challenges this week, Make the Day Special's monthly which is to try out a new technique and the Lawnscaping challenge which calls for patterned paper on their cards.
This is what I made

Now I'm guessing that if you've read the title of my post that you know what kind of card this is, but it's no fun unless you can see it in action right? So.....drumroll.....this is my first attempt at blogging a crafty video! And yes, it's AWFUL but if you knew how long it had taken just to get to this point of awfulness you'd forgive me, I know you would, and you might even say, "You know what Nikki? That video ROCKS!"

So I'm not going to mention the various types of devices attempted, the number of times shot on said devices, the convolution of setting up those devices with zero equipment, etc, etc and ETC! Nope...not mentioning it at all...I'm just gonna let you watch it...

I thank you for not sniggering too much, at least not within earshot anyway!

If you didn't watch it (and I can't say I blame you) here's another pic of my card which gives away exactly what's hiding under that big pile of leaves...

And if you hadn't already guessed, my never before tried technique is making a slider card, not making a video of it!

Thanks for 'bearing with' today!
