Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to join in the fun of the Authentique Papers celebration of all things Dad! I've created a card with the new Manly collection and I can not even express how much I love it!

This collection is chock full of richly patterned papers in warm  colors and gorgeous vintagy images.

Even though this is meant to be a more masculine card I still wanted to include all of my favorite layering elements.  I've added metal embellishments, made by me flowers, and ribbon trims to coordinate perfectly.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) Ginny

Hello crafty friends.  Jennifer Snyder here with my first post for Authentique.  What a truly amazing and exciting opportunity.  Thank you.  

 Next, I'm celebrating fathers, grandfathers,step-fathers and those with a fatherly role.  Thank you for being our role models, helpers, "go-to" guys, and our biggest fans. You mean the world to us.  Authentique thinks so as well because they have introduced some wonderful collections perfect for Father's Day and all year round!  
Today I am showcasing  Authentique's All-Star Collection, Football paper pack  by sharing an interactive slider card with surprise pop-up on the inside.  When I create a card, I image the smile on the face of the person opening the card.  This is why I enjoy creating cards that often have an element of surprise.  

Click here to see the card in motion.  

Here are the slider card instructions: 
Step 1.  Prep Card Base and cut pieces.

Step 2.  Fold, add foam, cut notch.
 Step 3. Set notch in place as slider guide.
Step 4. Flip over and add adhesive
Step 5. Add foam tape to create top
slider guide.
Step 6.  Secure top slider guide in place.

The image below is a side look showing the dimension of the pop-up element inside the card. What fun is it to have a bunch of football players pop out of the card! 
I added dimension on this card using foam, along with a fun pull-tab to make the football player glide effortlessly down the football field (a slick move every football fan wishes his favorite player could mimic). 

The finishing touch on the card was created by bedazzling with gold sequins and sequin stars.  
Happy crafting and thank you for sharing a part of your day here at Authentique.
