Slider cards are always a good option if you want a card with ‘wow’ factor.
Everyone loves moving parts – especially the young and young at heart!
The mechanism for every slider card is the same – create a track using a punch or framelits, make a sliding component and add a shape to the top.
I was using coins for my slider component until a child tore apart my handmade card to get to the coins…. so I’ve swapped to washers!!!
My Tuesday class asked to make a slider card last month so they could see all the steps of putting it together.
With Christmas on the agenda, it seemed like a good idea to put the Seasonal Chums stamp set & framelits to work!
Seasonal chums are great because they have a matching framelit! Simpy snip around the snowman’s hat where the tag was designed to fold – such an easy shape!!!
The other stamp set you see is the Watercolor Christmas stamp set.
As well as being the coordinating stamp set for the the amazing Watercolour Christmas Project Kit, this set is just perfect for cards.
It has large sentiments in a cute font and some fun coordinating images.
The DSP for the slider track is the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP. I’ve reinforced it with a layer of Whisper White cardstock to make sure it holds up to all that sliding fun.
The slider track for this card is made using the Classic Label Punch.
I punched the entire shape at each edge (lining up the outer edge of the punch with the edge of the cardstock) and then joined the two shapes by punching again in the middle.
This is a close up of the ‘slider sandwich’…
And another view of the card…
I love these soft colours!!
