Make It Monday #293: color slider cards

I was really happy to see this week`s challenge as I wanted to create such a slider card for some time.
So I took the opportunity to give it a go!
I used two older stamp sets from PI `Hello Foxy´ and `Wonderful Words: Together´.
I have to admit .... that I (kind of) cheated .... well not really cheated cheated but it felt like so a bit when I started creating my card.
I think it was SO clever how Lizzie created her slider card! Out of stuff she already had - that`s how it`s done!
Me? I am so not imaginative when it comes to coming up with such cool solutions, that`s the `cheat´ I did. I had already purchased a complete slider card die set from lawn fawn and I tell you - it is SO SO cool!!! It includes several shapes you can use for a window and a shape that cuts out your acetate piece .... it`s just SUPER CONVENIENT like this :-)

I started with a top folded kraft cardstock and impressed it with my woodgrain Impression plate. Then I sponged the edges with white ink to make the card pop a little bit more and splattered some white ink onto my base.
Here`s how it looks:

And here it is when the slider is fully pulled out:

This is the matching inside of the card:

And the envelope:

Super fun to make.
I then made another card with my slider dies and used the `cat`s meow´ stamp set from PI. This time I wanted to use a bit more patternded paper and here`s the result:

and with the completely pulled out tab:

These cards are just really fun to make :-)


  1. Birgit, your fox is adorable, I just love him on that woodgrain background! And it's not cheating at all using the die set, I would have used it too!

  2. Oh he's such a cute colorful fox! A perfect image for this technique, such a sweet card!

  3. Adorable! That fox is colored so beautifully. Love it!

  4. Both cards are adorable, I don't think you cheated at all, just lucky to have a cool die. :)

  5. Oh my word!! I love your cards! The kitty is precious! And there is no such thing as cheating. Nichole is very specific about just having fun and making things work for you. :D
