Got whole lot of craft supplies (mainly stamps) and few from the latest CHA release. We have some really great craft supplies stores catering to the latest demands of crafters.
Today I have used the ‘Hang in There’ stamp set from Lawn Fawn to make a fun slider card (just wanted to make a slider card with the sloth). Its a small stamp set with a cute image and simple sentiments. Have not been able to make a video tutorial so have taken few photos of the process of making this card.
Here is the card, have merged two images (forgot to do that earlier :-P), one with the slider in place and other with the slider pulled up to show the stamped image and birthday sentiment.
So this is how I made it,
Cut standard size card stock in 2 pieces of 81/2 x 4 3/4. one for the base/inside of the card and the other for the top panel.
Cut 3 pieces of foam of 1/2 inch width, 2 for the slider element to fit and 1 for the base as as stopper for the slider. The remaining 2 sides (left and top) can be closed later with foam. The top section of the slider is open for the slider to move.
Also cut a strip of thick card stock of appropriate width to make the slider.
The two foam columns for the slider are glued making sure that there is a little space so that the slider does not get stuck and moves freely. After adhering the foam columns, adhered foam to the base, the left side and top of the card. While gluing the left piece make sure that the focal image fits in the space.
Now I stamped the image on a watercolour paper, coloured it using watercolour pencils and cut it. Also, stamped the happy birthday sentiment and embossed it. Glued this behind the focal image.
Then cut a small strip of 1 1/2 inches width and attached the whole focal image at one end on the left side. Then attached the other side of this small strip to the slider. The slider should move freely.
Once the slider element is all done, used Distress ink to add the sky and cut some balloons and glued it directly on the base of the card.
For the top panel, I cut a circle/oval of appropriate diameter so that when the slider is pulled up the image is visible through the window. This required a little adjustment and trimming of the foam columns. Added a piece of transparency on the inside to close the window. Finally used distress ink to add colour to the panel and stamped the small leaves to create a pattern paper look. Cut a small piece of card stock in banner shape and stamped Hello sentiment in black ink and adhered using double sided foam tape.
Finally, placed the slider element in the channel created on the base card and glued the top panel using a strong double sided adhesive to complete the card. Here is the final card, one with the slider element in its original position and other with the slider element pulled up to display the focal image (the cute sloth holding the happy birthday placard).
