[Video]How to Make a Fancy Double Slider Card!

It's a throwback for this Thursday's post and all about making your own double slider card! 

Since I love buildings (it's the civil engineer in me, LOL!), I wanted to put a building on the front of a card. 

This card is 3.75" x 5.5" and will easily fit into an A2 envelope. 

Since the card is a little bulky, it's good there is some extra room available!


The house is building2 on the Cricut Winter Woodland cartridge (NOT a 3-d building) and is cut at 4", with all layers, shadow and blackout.

The card is layered with the Basic Grey Thin Ice Paper cut at 3.5"x5.5", white glitter paper at 3.25"x 5.25", then pink cardstock at 3 1/8"x5", then the blue swirls at 3"x4.5".


The two slider pieces are cut at 3.5"x5.5" and the top piece is accented with a "Merry Christmas" stamp outlined with pink Core'dinations paper. 

The bottom slider piece can be stamped, written on, etc. to personalize the card. 



Below, the card has been completely slid open! So, how do you make this card? 

Conveniently, I have made a short video showing you! See below for the video OR click HERE if you are unable to view it!

  35. It's a beautiful card, but I'm not sure I'm willing to put that much effort into a card. I'd rather put that effort into a mini album or something more likely to be looked at over and over.
