The Altered Alice: CHAPTER 18: Now you see him. . . Now you don't! Week 2

`Do you play croquet with the Queen to-day?'`I should like it very much,' said Alice, `but I haven't been invited yet.`You'll see me there,' said the Cat, and vanished.Alice was not much surprised at this, she was getting so used to queer things happening. While she was looking at the place where it had been, it suddenly appeared again.-- Chapter 6, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Just like the Cheshire Cat, we would like you to make a card where things appear and disappear! It could be as simple as a tag in a pocket or something more interactive and fun, for example a wiper card, a slider box or a slider card or even a double slider card, a telescoping card, a T-slide card, a swing (flip-flop) card, or a ViewMaster card. These tutorials from Splitcoaststampers are for inspiration; your project does not need to be a card. Enter by August 24 , and the winner will receive three digi stamps from our sponsor!

I made an interactive card this month.  I used a die from Papertrey Ink to make a zipper pull opening across the red queens neck.  Simply pull and its off with her head.

When you pull the zipper back..... Off with her head!

This is SO cool, such a great take on the challenge! I've seen these dies before and never thought of them for this challenge, it's fantastic! I love the vivid colors and embellishments, and that background paper is perfect! Love it!
