How to make a Slider Card

Unusual Opening cards like this Double PopUp Slider Card are some of the most fun cards to create and share. Today’s project features the Animal Outing Stamp Set and a variety of the Blends Alcohol Markers.

This Double PopUp Slider Card requires a bit of engineering, but I just love the challenge, and they are totally worth the effort!

Here’s my project for today in it’s closed position:

Once I’ve mastered creating a card like this, the next challenge is to teach others how to make it. Seeing the surprise and delight when someone opens a card like this is so fun!

Here’s the slider card when it’s open:

To create the focal piece here I’ve used masking to stamp the images, so that some of the images look like they are in front of other images. This is a very simple technique which will be shown in the video tutorial included ahead.
