Hello sweet crafters! Good to see you here! Today’s project is an easy to assemble slider card. Take a look!
For instructions on how you can create the sliding mechanism please refer to Jennifer McGuire’s video here.
My card measures 3 1/4 by 8.5 inches, so a skinny long format able to hold tickets or money or gift card and a message inside the pocket.
After the pocket was assembled, I added a piece of the beautiful Watercolor Strokes washi tape by Altenew and grabbed another piece of white cardstock that I trimmed down to be slightly smaller in width (about 3″).
To give the front panel a little bit of a twist, I used the dies from the Build A Flower Sakura Blossom set to die cut three window flowers from the front panel that would help the washi tape to show through. In her class, Therese Calvird shows quite a few ways to give your cards a twist and negative die-cutting really caught my eye! Then I die cut three additional flowers using the smaller die and the stems in the set. I added sploches of pink to the panel and foam mount everything onto the pre-assembled pocket.
As a final accent I added a few pinkish sequins here and there. I left the inside of the slider empty for now, waiting for the right occasion.
I hope you give this idea a try! It’s really such a fun little something to give to a loved one!
Thank you for spending time with me today! Take care and I’ll see you soon!
