Cass Creating Now - Slider Card, 6 November, 2015

Today I have s tutorial for Robyn's Fetish Challenge.
Check out their tutorial page, you will find lots of great ideas.
There are lots of different ways to make these cards, this is one version.

Double Slider Card


3 card blanks.  
Double Sided Tape 
Plastic shopping bag
Circle Punches
The image I have used is called "Simplify" and can be found at

Additional Notes: You could cut and fold card stock, so long as you have 3 cards.
Double sided tape - You do not need the heavy duty red tape  That is only used here for photographic purposes.

Card 1 -  This is the front of the card. The design needs to be made in landscape. It also needs to be made the wrong way around, so the bottom of the image is actually against the fold of the card.

Card 1 - Using a round punch, punch a half circle through both layers of the card.

Card 2 -  This card needs to be cut on one side only.  I am using 5¾ x 4 inch card blanks. I have cut
½ inch from each side and down ½ inch on both edges (this is where the slider fits.)

Card 3 - This card become the 2 slider panels.  You can print on them as I have, or stamp/write the sentiment.  Trim a small amount from the fold side of the card, so that you end up with 2 panels that will fit inside the card.  Also trim some off the length so that it will only show through on one side.

This is how it works.  Cut your paper bag to the width of the section cut from card 2.  Wrap around and using double sided tape, stick the plastic to the plastic.  Do not get any tape on the card.

 Keep tape within the edge of the plastic - if you get any on the card, it will not work.

You need to place the panel up against the edge of the card (not the edge of the half circle) 
mark where the edge is, place tape on the plastic and adhere the panel.

You need to do this with both panels, but remember when adding the second panel it needs to go face down.  I have curled the Birthday panel up so you can clearly see the Happy panel under the card but facing up.  Before you glue, check that both panels are facing the same way.

Take Card 1 and place it on top of Card 2, so that the top edge of Card 1 is against the fold of Card 2.  See photo.  Adhere at the card two fold section. Use thin tape so you do not get any tape on either of the panels or the plastic. 

Flip joined cards over.  Place the slider mechanism on top of the front of the card.  You will know which is which by the half holes you punched earlier.  x marks the spot where these cards need to be adhered.  Place thin tape along the x where the fold is. Do not get any on the plastic or panels and join the card.   Card 1 becomes the front and inside cover of your card, with the panels enclosed.  Card Two is the back of the card, both inside and out.

Lastly, take a small hole punch and punch a hole at the edge of both panels and thread 
through some ribbon/twine etc.

 I added some flowers, leaves and bows to complete the card.

The first one you make can be a bit tricky, but well worth it when you give this card to someone.

Happy Crafting!
