Hello crafty friends!…
This is a card I made for my son’s birthday… it turned out soooo cute! It is a double slider card and took a bit of working out…so, I have included a step by step tutorial, to show you what I did to make it…
I used a Woodware Clear stamp set called Pandamonium, Lawn Fwan Happy, Happy, Happy stamp set, copic markers Versamark Onyx black ink, clear embossing powder, Distress Oxide inks in Peacock feathers, Worn Lipstick and Squeezed Lemonade.
And now for the Tutorial…
The double slider card is easier to make than it looks…you can make it to what ever size you want and either use dies (as I have) to cut your panels or just measure and cut cardstock…
I have used the Lil’inkers Designs Stitched rounded rectangle dies in two sizes – “4¼ x 5½” and 3⅝” x 4¾”, two sheets of white cardstock, one plastic page protector ( you could also use an old plastic carrier bag) Double sisded tape and Dimensional foam tape.
Cut two of each. The larger panels are the card front and the slider base. The smaller panels are the sliding panels.
On the slider base (4¼” x 5½”) cut two slits, each one ½” from the edge leaving ¼” top and bottom.
Cut a strip of page protector (plastic or ziplock bag) 3″ x 10″
Slide the palstic through the slits and tape the ends together. do not leave any flappy bits that might get caught in the slits.
Add a thin strip of dimensional foam tape across the long sides of the panel. Be sure to leave enough space so the plastic strip does not get caught and runs freely.
On the two smaller panels leave a ½” tab on one end and place a strip of double sided tape on the backside (opposite end)
This is the point where you would decorate the Front panel and the two slider panels 😀
Attach the two decorated slider panels to the plastic leaving the ½” tab sticking out. One to the front and one to the back. Remember to make sure the decorated side of the panels are both facing up!
Now stick the decorated front panel to the foam tape. To cover the backside of the card I also stuck it to a A2 standard sized card, this also allows the recipient to stand the card up and gives the sender somewhere to write their message 👍🏻
The card should now open when you pull one of the sliders out…
I do hope this has helped you… if you have any questions, please let me know in the comments and I will try my best to answer them.
