I learned how to make slider cards from my friend Terry (terrore3). They're pretty easy to make and a lot of fun!
For the pocket, cut a piece of cardstock 8-1/2" x 5-1/4" and decorate if desired. Score it 2-5/8" on each side and fold into the middle. Tape it closed with monoadhesive. Use a hole punch to put a hole through all layers at the top center.
For the inside card, make the finished size 5" x 3". Cut a length of ribbon (I find I like how grosgrain works best) @ 18" long. Thread the ribbon through each hole from the inside and pull up so that both ends are even. Hold the ends of the ribbon together as you slide the inner card inside the pocket slowly pushing the ribbon down with it. Once it's inside all the way, tie the ribbon into a knot at the top and trim the ends. Now whenever you pull the ribbon up the card will slide with it, and when you push the card back in the pocket, the ribbon will slide with it.
