Okay girls Im going to try and explain the triple slider. Please bare with me, and thanks so much for the compliments.
Close to Cocoa mat cut at 4 ¼ x 5 ½
Pink front cut at 4 x 5 ¼ go in ½ from the top and sides and cut two slits, one on either side. This will leave you with ½ at the top and bottom not cut, make sure to cut the slits ½ from the sides.
Next you will need a brown mat to place on top of that under the slide. The brown piece is 3 5/8 x 2 5/8 and cut a white piece to place on top 3 ½ x 2 ½ .that is what you will put one saying and then the hearts on the bottom. Now tape it to the pink piece with the slits. Tape it about a ½ down from the slits and center it in between the slits.
Your next tow pieces are again layered. The brown is 4 1/8 x 2 5/8 and the white is 4 x 2 ½ You will stamp the saying at the bottom of this piece. Make sure not to stamp too low so that you cant sign the card, but not so high that you wont all show when pulled. Hold onto that piece for a moment.
Your next piece is 5 ¼ x 2 ½ .score this piece at 1 from either end of the 5 ¼ way. Place a piece of pink 3 x 2 3/8 on top and a white piece on top of that. That is what I stamped LOVE on. This piece will wrap around the pink mat inside the slits. Put the 1 tabs through the slits from the front, turn over and put tape on the inside of the flaps but not all the way, because you will be lining up the matted piece to put behind it that has the single saying on it. Line up that matted piece to the bottom of the pink base at the bottom and close the flaps. The flaps are now attached to the matted piece and that is what makes it slide. Dont forget to use your 1 circle punch to make the half circle on the pink piece which makes the place for the ribbon pull. Use a smaller hole punch to punch through the back matted piece so that you can pull it.
I then colored in with markers and made dots all around with my marker. Boy I sure hope this makes sense. It sounds so confusing ..if you break it down into steps its not so bad.
By the way the slider piece should be at the top of the card when you tape the inside hidden piece to it.

Terrific card! I love this set, and this is such an adorable way to use it.
I was able to follow your instructions perfectly, and can hardly wait to teach this beautiful card to my stamp clubs next week. Thank you ever so much for sharing - I don't think I could ever have figured it out if you hadn't given the step-by-step directions and all of the measurements.
