Slider Card Tutorial

Rachael here!
Break out your favorite Bombshell and let's get started with a great style of movable card - slider cards!

You will need the following:

1.  Pop dots - preferably the round ones, but if you do not have those, you can always round off the square ones.

2.  Two pennies

3.  Stampin' Up Word Window Punch (or the like) OR a craft knife/xacto

4.  Your favorite Bombshell image. I am using Bombshell's 

First, select the papers that you would like to use and stamp out your images. Stamp, color and cut out the images that you would like to use.

Now create the base of your card.

Now, on the base of your card, figure out how far you want your slider to go, lengthwise.

On a scratch piece of paper, punch out a template if you like, as I did here.

Trace and punch the actual paper you would like to use. Distress if you like. I'm using Tim Holtz's Distress Ink in Antique Linen.

Add pop dots to the back of this, but try to stay clear of the sliding area.

I am layering with another piece of paper of the same color and print. Glue.

Now glue the first layer to the base of the card. Set aside.

Using the piece that you've punched and distressed, take one penny and adhere a pop dot to it. I used two small square pop dots, but if you would like your moving bit to spin, you can round off the edges of the pop dots to a circle and the image will spin instead of slide. Sandwich with another penny after sliding it into the area you punched out.

Adhere your colored image to the back of the penny.

Adhere the entire piece onto your card and decorate.


Thanks for joining us today! I hope you give this fun style of card a try. 

Xo, Rachael
