70th Slider card


Good Morning everyone, i hope you had a good weekend.

Today im sharing a slider card made using a sizzix die to celebrate a friends 70th birthday, she absolutely loves her flowers so ive gone for full on flower power😀

card size 6x6". I cut a piece of paper to fit the card front, i then used the slider die set to cut the front panel out of the middle of my paper, using papers from the same paper pad i die cut the remaining elements,  i then attached the paper 'frame' to the card front.  Where i knew the slider opening would be i placed a piece of pink dotty paper and stamped '70' a few times.

After making up the slider part using the piece i cut out of the middle and the pull up tab section which id cut from dotty paper I attached this with foam tape around the sides and bottom. Doing it this way just means the paper matches and pattern lines up, otherwise you can cut the who slider section from different papers - hope that makes sense😁  

I stamped my sentiment.  Die cut a butterfly to add to the panel that opens up, added paper roses that i was kindly given many years ago (thank you Chris Lee) which i teamed up with some die cut foliage.  Pink gems to finish.

Showing it slid open to reveal the sentiments.  I added glossy accents to the numerals.


Showing it side on and how the slider works. 



Just a close up of the butterfly and roses. I think it looks like the butterfly is flying when you slid it open.

Items Used:
Sizzix tropicool slider set '662783'
Paper pad -  poundland 'floral romance'
Spellbinders butterfly die
Foilage die

Thank you all for stopping by once again.  I hope you enjoy your bank holiday Monday today.
