Step by Step Guide:

Before you begin you should decide on your card size, then decide on the slider pocket size based on your stamp. My card is 4.75″ x 5.75″ and the pocket size is 4.25″ x 5.25″.

Cut a piece of white card measuring 4.25″ x 10.5″ and fold in half for the pocket. Cut a piece of card for the image, and a piece of acetate, both measuring 4 1/8″ x 5 1/8

On the front panel of the folded card, cut a window using a rectangle die.

Using the front of the pocket as a guide, cut a patterned paper panel to cover the white card.

Position the folded card on a stamping tool, if yo have one. If not, you can use a stamp-a-ma-jig or take a chance and eyeball it. Line up the stamp so that it will be directly in the middle.

Remove the pocket and place the white blending card exactly where you had the pocket. Stamp, using a suitable ink for your colouring medium.

Place the acetate directly on top of the stamped image and stamp again, using a solvent ink, such as StazOn or Archival.

Colour the image using your preferred medium

Colour in the whole background. The more colour you add to the background & image the more it pops when you reveal it by pulling up the slider. Set the image aside once you are happy with it.

Cut a piece of white card about 1/4″ wider than your window, and 1/8″ shorter than the length of the pocket

Position the slider over the window and, using a pencil, mark each side.

Using a craft knife, or scoring board, make a slit between the 2 pencil marks.

Ensure the slider tag will fit into the slit, ensuring it’s not too tight.

Adhere the coloured image to the inside back of the pocket.

Cut 2 strips of white card measuring 1/4″ x 5 1/8″ and one measuring 1/4″ x 3 1/4″

Apply some 1/8″ double sided tape to the long strips and adhere them along each side, lining them up with the outside edge.

Apply a strip of tape across the bottom of the slider tag and adhere the shorter strip of card, ensuring it’s lined up to the bottom edge.

Insert the tag into the pocket and line it up in the centre. Trim off the excess on the bottom of the tag, so that it’s inside the 2 vertical strips. This will be the tracks to keep the slider tag in place.

On the inside of the front panel, apply some 1/8″ tape on all 4 sides, keeping towards the outer edges.

Line up the acetate on top of the image so that the images are directly on top of each other. Remove the backing from the tape on the front and fold down to adhere the acetate to the inside front of the pocket. At this point, the front and back of the pocket are still separate

Open up the front and apply a strip of tape across the bottom of the image, about 1/8″ up from the bottom. This will seal the bottom so that the slider tag won’t fall out, and also raises the tag up so that it sticks up out of the pocket. Also apply 1/8″ tape along the length of the white strips you previously added.

Remove all the tape backing and fold the pocket closed to seal it all.

    What a great card! I have passed on the tutorial to stamping friends of mine. Will I make this card? I don’t have a lot of the stuff to make it but I might just keep it in case I ever can make it. It’s a beautiful card and I love how it’s done. How do you guys come up with this stuff, anyway? LOL
