Default Secret Slider Tutorial by genescrapper

*Inspired by the interactive cards in the March 2008 Paper Crafts magazine*

I liked Nichole Heady's Secret Wish Card using a pre-made 'Secret Keeper Card by Urban Lily' (shown on pg 90).
So ... I decided to try and make a card that had the same type of slider action
... and this is the result!

For this type of slider card - the sides of the card move apart to reveal the inside pocket and sentiment. I used a brad and made a slider track on each side of the inside pocket for the card to slide open and closed on. The brad and slider track remain hidden when the sides are pulled open.

You can view the card in My Gallery by clicking Secret Slider closed and Secret Slider open

Thanks for the kind comments ~ I was so excited that some of you asked for a tutorial!!
This is my first attempt at making a tutorial, so if I've forgotten any details, or you have any questions, please feel free to PM me! Also, if you make a Secret Slider Card ~ I would love to see it!!

See post # 8 for instructions in .pdf format ~ Thanks, shirolives!

** See post #22 for new .pdf Tutorial and post #23 for new .doc Tutorial **
The new Tutorial has additional pictures and more detailed instructions for assembly of the slider

Fantastic! I can very well use this card format because we would like to give to our son a coupon to his confirmation.

Thanks for the tutorial. I saw this in Paper Crafters and was disappointed that they did not publish detailed instructions.

I tried to follow the PDF tutorial but am having problems understanding. I tried for over an hour to make it work. If you have more detailed instructions, I would really appreciate a copy. Thanks - love the card!

Smile Secret Slider Cards

Thank you for sharing this tutorial (it is brilliant!!) about the secret slider card! I just received a pack of Urban Lily Secret Slider Crads in the mail from a very dear friend of mine. I wasn't too sure how to decorate them so I went to SCS & found YOURS! What a great job you have done with the card & the tutorial! Once I have used all my cards I now know how to make my own! Thank you so much!

We tried this (and the new directions rock) - but had trouble with the brads lying flat enough so the sides could stick together. One of my friends trimmed the inside back piece a little smaller and it seemed to work better.
