Double Slider Card

by Beate Johns

Susanne Moyer's idea for the Word Window tool punch makes this fun card possible.

Supplies

  • Stamps

  • Word Window tool punch

  • 1/2" circle punch

  • Dimensionals

  • Glue dots

  • Sticky Strip™

  • Regular adhesive

  • Ink

  • One 4 1/4" x 11" piece of cardstock, scored at 5 1/2" for card base (Always Artichoke)

  • One 2" x 3 1/2" piece of neutral cardstock for front slider

  • One 3 1/2" x 5" piece of neutral cardstock for back slider

  • One 3" x 3 1/2"piece of neural cardstock for main image

  • Cardstock scraps for layering

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Stamp and decorate all neutral cardstock. Layer on colored cardstock if desired.

    The main image will be shown in full, but only the tops of the sliders will show.

  2. Step 2 (Optional)

    Add a background to the card front.

  3. Step 3

    Slide the Word Window punch in from the card front's long side until it doesn't go any further and punch.

  4. Step 4

    Move the punch over a bit and punch again. You will have made a slot approximately 1 1/2 times the original length of the punch. Repeat on the other side to create two equal, parallel slots on the card front.

  5. Step 5

    Punch out four circles from scrap cardstock with the 1/2" circle punch.

  6. Step 6

    Add a dimensional on two circles.

  7. Step 7

    Position the circles at the bottom of each slot behind the card front.

  8. Step 8

    Add the last two cardstock circles on top of the dimensionals.

  9. Step 9

    Open the card. Center the back slider in the middle of the card and line up the top of the slider and top of the card.

    Make sure that the image is facing you.

    Add a glue dot to the 1/2" circles.

  10. Step 10

    Fold the card. The back slider will adhere to the 1/2" circles.

  11. Step 11

    Open the card, and add a glue dot to each 1/2" circle on the front of the card.

  12. Step 12

    Center the front slider over the 1/2" circles.

    Make sure the main image will still cover the front slider!

  13. Step 13

    Add a dimensional to each corner of main image's back.

  14. Step 14

    Position the main image over the front slider. Make sure the slider won't be stopped by one of the dimensionals.

  15. Step 15

    Reopen card and add Sticky Strip™ to both long sides of the card. Peel off liner of the Sticky Strips™. Close card to adhere.

  16. Step 16

    Add a little tab to pull up the card. I used one of the punch outs from the card front.

Variations

    Try a different size
    You can make the sliders any size you want. Just make sure the main image will cover the front slider.

    Rotate the layout
    Try making it a horizontal card vs. a vertical one like in this sample

    Use a circle punch
    Punch a half circle to add a slot to pull out the sliders, instead of using the tabs.

Hi
In the Uk the word window is not available. Please can you possibly explain an alternative way of creating the gap/hole required without this tool-measurements etc? Thank you-it's a stunning card!

Thanks for a easy to follow tutorial. I have been looking for a holder for some 3x3cards.
Hope mine look as lovely as yours!

Great tutorial.

I've made several of these and some slide easily and others don't slide so well. I wonder what the trick is? It seems like it's the sticky strip that's slowing things down. I'm considering trying to trim the strips down from 1/4" to 1/8" and seeing if that helps.
