Slider Card

Slider Card Closed

I had a lot of fun making a slider card at my friend Leilani’s a few weeks ago and decided to make one for the GreatSwaps “Fancy Fold/Cards that Move” swap. You can find Beate’s Slider Card tutorial in the Resources section of Splitcoaststampers. I started out with a 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Perfect Plum card stock, scored at 2-1/2″, 5-1/4″ and 8″. This way you can make two slider cards from one 8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet and the finished cards fit inside the small open-end Stampin’ Up! envelopes.

I decorated the front of the card by rolling the Stems & Silhouettes jumbo wheel in Perfect Plum ink on Very Vanilla paper. The edges were sponged with River Rock ink. The Wonderful You flower was stamped in Jet Black StazOn ink on Very Vanilla paper as well and colored with Classic inks and blender pens. I punched a 5-Petal flower out of River Rock card stock to go behind the colored flower. Both were adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I stamped birthday wishes on the two 2-1/2″ x 4″ River Rock pieces in Jet Black StazOn ink. The leaves were stamped in VersaMark and the outside corners rounded.

The ribbon on the left hand side is used to reveal the wishes inside the card, and is threaded through a jumbo Antique Brass eyelet. I realized afterwards that the card may work better for a left-handed person (such as me), but I’m sure even right-handed people will like it!

This interactive card is definitely fun to make and to receive!

    WOW vera, this is lovely! I love that you used this stamp set that is part of the current promotion too- it has always caught my eye. Can’t wait to get this in person- I’ve never played with a slider before!

    This is too cool- I saw a Victoria’s Secret Gift Card Holder that had the same idea. Great job on this one!

    It’s like show and tell when Donna & I got home from card class. Our DH’s thought the slider card was super neat. Really like how you colored in some of the outline stamps on this one! You go, girl!!
