Slider magic with Through The Craft Room Door


The sponsor for this challenge is:

My Favorite Things
***  ***
I have linked the products available from the MFT store in my ingredients below.


I have made two projects to share with you today.

This post is all about the second one, a magic slider card.

Unfortunately the only My Favorite Things exclusive products I have in my crafty stash are the shaker pouches shared in my previous sunflower shaker card post.  The good news is that MFT stock a wonderful variety of essential crafting products, so I have linked to the products I have used so that you can purchase them from the MFT store.

I made two of these magical birthday cards so that I could show you the magic happen,
with one fully open and the other closed then gradually opening.
I'm sure I will be making more of these fun, interactive folds.

I started with a new magic slider cut file on my Silhouette Cameo design mat.  The card is actually a print & cut but I wanted to personalise it by colouring with Copic markers, so I removed all the colour.  I printed the front cake image on acetate and the image/sentiment panel on X-Press It blending card.  I heat set the image/sentiment panel, coloured with Copic markers then trimmed to size.  I cut all the coloured cardstock panels using my Cameo then assembled, starting with the coloured image panel and the "U" shaped spacers, adhering them all in place.  I tucked the slider panel in through the slot, pulling it right up to the edge of the card fold.  Next came the acetate panel.  I applied high take double-sided adhesive around the inner edge of the back of the window (sure hope that makes sense, you can learn all about it on Lori's video tutorial HERE).  I carefully aligned the acetate cake panel over the coloured image, holding it in place then slowly closing the front over it.  All that was left was to do was to adhere the card front down and it was ready to make magic happen.

Here are the cards side-by-side so that you can see them in action.
Just click on the image if you want to see the detail in full screen.



These cards are so much F U N ... just have to share some more close-up pics
