So, back in July, I held my Christmas in July workshops and we made this card:
Using the same supplies (found here in the original post) and just a few more, I pulled of a slider card:
So did I make this transformation. Follow these steps:
- Open the card, a slide to the 3 inch mark on your trimmer. Cut only one side down to score. Glue the larger side down.
- Keeping the 3-inch flap open and out of the way, adhere your DSP background
- Take a fun design 4″ x 6″ Memories and More card front from the pack and cut down to 2 3/4″ x 4. Adhere that to the flap front. Take a piece of Basic White (3 1/2″ x 2 1/4″), stamp the sentiment and adhere to the card front.
- Put you Snowy White piece of cardstock in your trimmer with the short edge along the top. Move to the three-quarter inch mark and cut from half-inch to 5 1/2″ inch. Put foam adhesive strips along the top and bottom edges of the long sides
- Fold the remaining bit of the Memories and More card front in half and burnish well. Glue the two edges together and then adhere this little pocket to the caboose (so it can hold the gift card)
- Take a 1/2″ by 5/12″ piece of Real Red and lay it along the bottom of the card. Place you cut out (Santa and caboose) on the card front to spec out where you want them. I placed my caboose under the the flap and Santa just outside of that
- Take 3/4″ x 2″ scraps of Basic White and adhere to the strip of Real Red where the caboose and Santa line up.
- Slide these Basic White pieces through the slit you made in the Snowy White sheet. You’ll want to keep the 3/4″ section above the slit towards the top of the card
- Once the Real Red/Basic White piece is through the slit, remove the backing of the foam adhesive strips and adhere to the card
- Adhere your train track
- Adhere Santa and his caboose to the Basic White strips – you have a slider card!
In case that was as clear as mud (haha), here is a video to help:
