What better way to bring awareness than to create the You’re my Superhero Autism Awareness project! This is such a cool card.

This is the You’re my Superhero Autism Awareness Project we are creating. I love the way it moves and is such a motivating energized card. Exactly what you would want to bring awareness, right?

To start the You’re my Superhero Autism Awareness Project you will need to take out your A Creative Journey with Melissa’s Awareness Ribbon Set #5 – See Autism with your Heart Stamp Set your ink, stamp block and stamping paper.

Ink your stamp thoroughly.

Stamp your image on the stamping paper. You can make a few extra so you have them on hand for your next project.

Take out your Chameleon Pens RD4 and BL6. Using the BL6 color in the puzzle piece in your image.

Using your RD4 Chameleon Pen, color in the cape on the image.

This is what your image will look like once it has been colored in.

You will now be cutting out the front of the card where you will be creating your slider. Take out your white piece of paper and manual die cutting machine for the for the front of the card.

Place your base platform, clear platform, paper and die on the die cut machine.

Be sure to center your die where you want it on the card so that it cuts properly.

Place your clear platform on top of the paper and die.

Run your die and paper through the die cut machine.

This is what it will look like once you have done this.

Take out your stamp sentiment, ink and stamp block. Stamp the sentiment as shown above.

Using your Glue dots, place your sequins on the glue dots.

Place your sequins on your card front for decoration.

This is what it will look like once you have done this. You don’t have to do it exactly as I have, this is just for a reference for placement. It’s your creation so make it your own!

Take out your circular pop dot. Be sure that it fits in the channel for your slider card. If not, be sure to trim it down and round the edges. This will help with the flow of the slider card.

Place your pop dot on your penny as shown above.

Take your other penny and place it on the top of the penny like a sandwich with the pop dot in between both pennies.

Put adhesive on the back of the colored image. Place the colored image on the back of the penny.

This is what it will look like once you have done this.

Carefully place one side of the penny on one side of the channel as shown.

Place the other half of the side under the other side of the paper like shown.

Moving your card left to right, watch your image flow across your card. If you are having issues with it. Guide your image back and forth a few times in the channel to ensure it’s ease of movement.

This is what your You’re my Superhero Autism Awareness Project will look once it is done!

    Ok this is definitely my Favorite card on your blog so far!!!! Pennies???? Who would have thought?!?! Genius! I have a question….if you do not have a cut machine, is there another way that this type of cut can be done? By hand maybe or a stencil and an exacto knife? Thank you so very much for posting these beautiful cards for such a great cause. I have a 4 year old son who has autism and I’m always looking for stuff to make for his teachers and therapists. Especially cards!! I’m going to attempt all 3 when I get my stamp set that I just ordered from your Etsy shop.

    Oh, what a fun interactive card design to celebrate Autism Awareness month. Love that superhero theme with the puzzle piece and slider element. Thank you for the tutorial that explains the process so well Melissa. I’m always kind of intimidated by fancy and interactive cards and it helps to have a step by step with photos.I follow on youtube and by email and blogger!
