Hello again! It’s been awhile since my last blog post, but I’m back to show you the gorgeous technique we played with in last weeks’ card class – Pop Up Slider Cards. These cards were inspired by Helen Allen. HERE is her original tutorial. I have shrunk the dimensions a little, down to a 4×6″ size, so they fitted into a standard C6 envelope.
Below are the pieces you need to make the card, and the sizes required. Please note that the imperial measurements are the most accurate – the metric is given only as an estimation of the closest measurement to imperial ;)
For the first card, the front of the card piece was cut and scored on the Stampin’ Trimmer, as per the guide above. The centre piece was ‘valley folded’, and put aside. We then used Balloon Celebration and the Bermuda Bay, Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive, and Daffodil Delight Classic Stampin’ Pads to stamp the slider piece, the front piece, the envelope, and the back of the card. Use the front of the card as your guide for when to stamp on the back piece ;)
Using a 1″ circle punch, a pull tab hole was punch in the top of the card front and card back. The bottom edge of the slider piece was then glued to the bottom of the card front, along the 1/2″ folded tab. Then the sides of the card front were glued to the card backing. The top of the slider was punched with a hole punch, and a strand of Bermuda Bay Stitched Ribbon was fed through and tied off. Here is the finished card:
We also took the opportunity to make a Mother’s Day version, seeing as Mother’s Day is Sunday 8th May in Australia. We used Butterfly Basics (one of my all-time fave photopolymer sets!), and a colour combo of Watermelon Wonder, Crumb Cake, and Mint Macaron. Here is the Mother’s Day version:
Thank you for popping in to check out our creations. I hope you will leave feeling inspired to try this technique. ‘Til next time x
