Today we are creating Magic Slider cards. I followed a tutorial by Luvin’ Stampin’ as a starting point for today’s card. I made a slightly different version of this type of card a few years ago using butterflies.
I started with a piece of Basic White Thick cardstock that is 3 7/8″ x 10 1/2″, scored at 5 1/4″. Next I used a rectangle die to create an opening. (I used 3 7/8″ because the rectangle die works better with it.)
The Stamparatus makes this so much easier to do. I attached a piece of 3 1/2″ x 5″ Window Sheet behind the opening using Tear & Tape. The image on the white is stamped using Memento ink so I could color it in with alcohol markers.
Next I folded the white cardstock and used Stazon black ink to stamp on the window sheet.
Make sure you check if your markers are too dry before coloring in the image. 🙂
Next I used a craft knife to cut a slit of my 3″ x 5″ piece of white cardstock that will hide the colored image. You don’t want it too wide or the slider will come out.
I put 3 strips of white cardstock, 1/4″ wide each, on the edges and bottom using liquid glue. There are also two 1/4″ strips at the bottom of the slider piece to keep it from being pulled out. Now put tear & tape over this strips making sure not to have any excess adhesive touch the slider. Since the tear & tape is wider that 1/4″, I put the excess on the outsides and rolled it over toward the inside. Now close it.
I didn’t like the white only look so I cut the same rectangle out of a piece of slightly larger patterned paper, glued it on, and used scissors to cut off the excess around the edges.
I think the uneven and color changed background kind of looks like marbling. 🙂
