Slider Money Wallet

Hi all, thanks for popping in today, I hope you are all well!

The new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and More is "This is a Man's World", hosted this time by Carol.  She's asking you to create anything suitable for a man or boy.

Well, I'm not good at masculine cards so I thought I'd do a children's money wallet, with a spinning football on it.  However, you know how an idea pops into your head, which you think will be a quick and easy make but sods law, it ends up taking you a whole afternoon to construct.  Well this was one of those occasions.

This was my first go at a slider/spinner card, and although the mechanics are actually quite simple, on my first attempt I made the grass too tall and the ball was sticking on it and then the sentiment I'd chosen was too big and was obstructing the slider hole.

So, after much faffing, here is make number 2 - short grass and little sentiment ....

Supplies Used
DP from stash (I just free-hand cut the grass)
Football stamp is from Hobbycraft, clear embossed
Letters are Studio G, clear embossed

Thankfully, now that we're into February, the days are starting to get a little longer and I can feel myself slowly coming out of hibernation! Lol!

Many thanks for coming to visit.
Take care

Suze xx

I applaud you. A spinner card I have never tackled (just realised there is a pun - football .... tackle!) because it always looked so complicated.
This is incredibly neat and tidy especially the slot.

The faffing was definitely worth it. Have never attempted one myself so I applaud you and thank you for the great inspiration for my challenge :) Cxx

How lovely to see you peeking out from your hibernation spot, Suze!! Your money wallet card is aces!! I wish I had a penny for every time I needed at least two tries at a new technique! The second try is fantastic!!

We say "Murphy's Law" in the States and I'm thinking it means the same thing as "sod's law." There is always such a wonderful sense of satisfaction when one perseveres and gets around those boogers!!

Enjoy the weekend! Hugs, Darnell
