I was checking out Dawn's Stamping Studio blog, and found a tutorial for a double slider card using a plastic bag. It looked interesting, so I thought I'd try it. It was very easy, and a lot of fun to do, and could be used for so many types of cards. I used mine for a birthday card. A "slider" card has a part of the card that "pulls out", only this one has two. The slider mechanism is made with a plastic bag, that is 1 1/2 inches wide by 12 1/2 inches long. A good way to recycle...
With this slider card, when you pull on the ribbon at the top of the card, it slides out from the top and bottom, each with a sentiment on it, like this:
A little info, this is Tilda from Magnolia Stamps. I stamped her as usual on Neenah card stock, and used Mementos Tuxedo Black ink. The sentiments were stamped the same way. I used copics to color her. The blue, green and pink card stock is from AC (American Crafts). I added a cute little mini rose from Prima. The ribbon and pom pom is from my growing stash! I used a glitter pen to highlight the butterfly wings. I gave her pink gems for buckles on her shoes. The corners of the image were cut and embossed using a Fiskars corner punch.
If you get a chance check out the tutorial and have a go at making this card, it was fun, and it's always good to have different types of cards in your repertoire.
