Papertrey Ink February Blog Hop {Interactive Cards}

Saturday, February 25, 2012


PTI's February Blog Hop is all about interactive cards.  A long time ago I found directions for and made a slider card.  It's so surprisingly simple to make!  Here's the video that first got me started.  I decided to find that video again and give it another try.


There are really so many things you could do with this design!
