My aunt's birthday is this week, and I wanted to make kind of a fancy card for her. I looked through my Pinterest board for fancy fold/interactive cards, and found a magic slider card example. I used the instructions from Kelly Marie Alvarez for Day 3 of Online Card Classes' "Clear & Sheer" class.
After cutting my pieces, I stamped the mouse lighting the candles from "Birthday Party" onto my window card insert piece, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink & my MISTI. Without removing the stamp, I also stamped it on a piece of acetate with StazOn. I used Prismacolor pencils to color the image on the cardstock piece.I stamped "Happy Birthday" with Tuxedo Black onto a strip of blue cardstock, and cut it into a banner. I used a rectangle die to cut the window into the front of my insert piece.
I assembled my card per the instructions. I then discovered I had cut my window in the insert piece a little bit crooked, despite my best efforts to keep it straight! So it took me a few tries to get the mint frame cut properly. I ended up drawing cutting lines on the back, and cutting it with a craft knife, using a metal ruler as a guide. Finally, I adhered the frame on top of the window piece.
I die cut a tab, and stamped "Pull" with an arrow on the front. I folded that over the top of my slider piece and glued it in place with liquid glue. Finally, I adhere the whole panel to a pink A2-size piece of cardstock with fun foam between to pop it up. This makes it easier to pull the slider tab. I adhered my greeting banner in place, and this card was done! (See this post to see the card "closed.")
