Friendship Card with Lawn Fawn's Garden Before 'n Afters

 Hello and Welcome! Today's card is a cute interactive card using Lawn Fawn's Magic Picture Changer along with their Garden Before 'n Afters stamp set. 

For this card, I started with a A2 top fold card using MFT's Cardstock in Limelight

I used a pretty yellow patterned paper for the background from a paper pack I purchased recently called Fun on the Farm by Echo Park. I thought this splash of yellow would go well with the green cardstock. 

With a pencil, I drew the area with the picture changer so I knew where to stamp my before and after images. I tried to make sure both images were in the same position so when you pull the tab they look the same. 

Once I had my images stamped, I colored everything in with my Copic markers. 

I then die cut the frame around the picture changer using Lawn Fawn's Magic Picture Changer Add-On and following the images I stamped on the picture changing insert, I created the sky and ground to match what I had made in the picture changer. I colored this in with Copic markers as well. 

I stamped a few images from the Garden Before 'n Afters stamp set as well as the little bee from Lawn Fawn's Berry Special stamp set. I colored these in with Copic markers and die cut them out using the coordinating dies. 

Before I added the extra images, I stamped the sentiment on the front using VersaMark Ink and white embossing powder. 

Then I added the images I stamped and die cut to the front, being careful not to get glue on the picture changer mechanism. 

I did a test pull to make sure everything worked well and it did! Lastly I added a bit of scrap green cardstock to the pull arm and added the "pull" tab on the end. 

I just love how great these cards turn out, how simple they are to make and just how much fun it is to pull the tab and watch the picture change! 

Thank you so much for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!
