The new Movers & Shakers dies designed by Nichole Heady for Papertrey Ink were designed to allow you to create interactive elements on your cards! There are several different dies that will be available on the 15th of this month with this set: Spinners, Poppers, Sliders, and Zippers. I am super excited about these and can't wait to see what everyone has made with their assigned die! The possibilities are endless. I love that!
My assignment was to use the Straight Track die from the Movers & Shakers: Spinners die set.
First, you'll cut a piece of cardstock, then place the straight track die on your cardstock and run it through your Cuttlebug or other die cut machine. You'll want to cut the circles as well with the other die in this set (Spinners).
Since I wanted to back my card with dark cardstock (to represent nighttime with my stars), I cut the little circles from black also, so it wouldn't show as much. You'll stack up the circles, adhere them together (with the 2 small ones in the center) and slide the finished sandwich onto the track. I attached my star to the circle with pop dots, so it was raised up a bit and easier to grab . The circle below isn't attached to anything, so it can slide.

I have one more example using the Straight Track. Notice I used it vertically in the first card and horizontally on this one. I used the Sending You and Postmarks stamps to create a little sliding mailbox.
I used the same technique here on this card and attached the mailbox to a circle under the track with pop dots. The mailbox slides back and forth.
