Magic Slider Cards - FREE Design Space FIle

Who doesn't love a 'Little Bit of Pun'?

If you haven't guessed it yet, that is exactly what the December Stamp of The Month is featuring. Cute little images with adorable and some real laugh out loud sentiments. Look how cute these are...

Today I am going to show you just how I created quick and easy slider cards use the December SOTM and a design space file. 

Lets start with the basic assembly:

In the lower right hand corner, you can see the pieces I will be working with after the file has been cut. The 3" x 6" white daisy cardstock is cut to create two bases. 3" x 3" and 2.5' x 3"
  1. Adhere the 3" x 3" white daisy to the base of your card. I would at this point stamp create my base images now. I could have done this prior, its really personal preference. 
  2. The file cuts two "U" shaped pieces. These are the guides for the slider. Adhere the the first one down, with STRONG adhesive making sure the side and bottom are lined up exactly. 
  3.  Add the second directly on top, again making sure the sides and bottom are lined up exactly.
  4. Add the slider and test to make sure the guides are placed correctly. 
  5. Add the optional 2nd white daisy base to the slider. Again, I would create my slider images and or sentiments now. Personal preference, as there is no right or wrong way to do do this. 
  6. Add the Acetate piece to your window. I would at this point stamp any images that would need to line up with my bases images (not the slider images) in Staze on ink on the acetate. 
  7. Line up the slider through the sliced opening, and add STRONG adhesive to the top of the guides, careful not to add adhesive to the slider. Close the slider. 

Here is a finished Slider using the December Stamp of The Month Smore image. 


How'd She Do That ⇭😮

The S'more image was stamped twice, once on my 3" x 3" white daisy base in versa mark ink and heat embossed with fine black embossing powder. Then stamped on the acetate 3" x 3" window. The S'more image was colored in with watercolored pencils. When done lightly, I found the White Daisy holds up well to watercoloring. A window boarder was added to the top of the acetate. The sentiment "I need S'more" was stamped on Black cardstock, in versa mark ink, and heat embossed with fine white embossing powder. A small notch was cut from one end of the piece to create a banner. 3D tape was added to the back to give dimension. The Card was finished off with some old heart enamels, then layered on a 3.25" x 3.25" sweet leaf cardstock and then again on a 3.5" x 3.5" pewter cardstock. Using a hold punch, the slider was then given a tassel with twine.
