Hi, it’s Jeni here with a pull tab slider card using the new Christmas Magic clear stamp set by Avery Elle. The idea for this card came from Mom (Janet). She was using the snowman on a card and said how great would the striped pole from the lamp post work as the center part in horses on merry go rounds! It took a few trials and errors to figure out the correct moving parts so it would look right. All the supplies I used are listed below and linked to the shop.
Firstly I cut a piece of white card to 9.5 x 12.5 cm and stamped a background, I used the Catherine Pooler Yay Stripes stamp set. Stamping with Mint To Be ink and It’s A Boy rotating the stamp to create a pattern with the dots. I decided to use greens and blues as a nice change from pink as I I didn’t want this to be too girly with lots of pinks and purples.
With the long straight die, I diecut from the top center of this stamped piece, also die cutting a circle and a slightly larger circle from the background piece to leave a notch for your fingers to be able to hold the circle tab.
I trimmed a piece of card to 4 x 12cm and, in the middle I stamped the pole from the lamp post, masking off the lamp part. I stamped and coloured the pegasus onto the same Bristol Smooth card. The colours I used will be listed below in the supply list. I diecut the pegasus with the coordinating die then started working on the sentiment.
The new Kind of Wonderful stamp set by Catherine Pooler is perfect for this card. Stamping the Kind word with Versafine Onyx Black I heat embossed with Ranger Superfine Clear Embossing Powder. Making sure my heat gun was really hot before taking it to the vellum. I also stamped and heat embossed in white “You Are” and “Of Wonderful”. Once the vellum had cooled I fussy cut leaving a border around the sentiment. I adhered the two black sentiment strips to the Kind vellum.
Completing The Slider
To put the slider part of the card together I held the slider tab in place (making sure the striped pole was visible) and turned my card over. I placed a double layer foam tape along the sides of the tab – not too close as the tab needs to move, and below the bottom of the tab to act as a stopper – then added foam tape to the rest of the card so it will all be secure and no part will sag.
Finishing The Slider
I added some strong liquid glue to an MFT Slider element and adhered my pegasus. Making sure the pull tab was fully pushed down, and placed the sentiment on the card I used some more strong glue to the slider element and placed this on the slider tab. I placed some small acrylic blocks on top of the pegasus to make sure everything dries securely.
Finishing The Card
To attach the sentiment I used small foam squares and hid them behind the darker more solid parts of the “Kind” and the banner strips. I mounted this to a piece of purple card to add a border then onto an A2 sized card base. I added some black glaze pen to the eyes of the pegasus and some White Blizzard drops around the blanket on the pegasus, and left the Nuvo drops to dry for 24 hours.
