Beach Bum Magic Slider

I have had my eye on this set for ages and ages then learned that one of my friends had it. Woo hoo! And now I've had it for months while my friend has patiently waited for me to get off my bum and work up this card. LOL.

I tossed around a couple of ideas on how to make this magic slider then decided after experimenting that acetate would work best for the top layer so I wouldn't need to make two backgrounds. So I stamped and masked Santa on the base scene then colored him up half-naked after sponging the background. I colored and fussy cut out a second one which I mounted on acetate. I raised the scalloped border up on foam tape to make sure that the top Santa wouldn't catch when sliding. Worked a treat. I added the tiny snowflake to help with gripping the panel; it also draws attention to the tab. I love how this turned out!
