Hello there, it’s time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge. This time you can make any type of card that tickles your fancy – LOL!
Now, my daughter, Miss K, is heading off to a friend’s 12th birthday and needed a card that could also double as a gift card holder. What’s a mother to do? Make a slider card that hides the gift card – that’s what!
Now I’m not sure if you’ve had a go at this style card but it’s surprisingly easy and looks the bomb diggity.
What you’ll need:
- Thick cardstock for you base 14.8cm x 21cm scored at 10.5cm
- A black piece cardstock 14.8cm x 10.5cm
- DSP 14.3cm x 10cm (I used SU Festive Birthday DSP)
- Tab piece of cardstock matching the card base 8cm x 12.8cm
- Ribbon 4cm
- 1″ circle punch (for the notch in the pull up piece)
- 2 1/4 inch circle punch – white cardstock
- 2 1/2 inch circle punch – black cardstock
- Senitment/s (I used MFT Birthday Greeting)
- Stick your DSP panel to the black panel, making sure you get adhesive all over the centre of the DSP not just the edges
- On the short edge line the DSP/black panel at 8.5cm and cut between the 2cm and 12.8cm measurements on your cutter
- Rotate the panel 180 degrees and repeat
- On the long edge, place the panel in your trimmer, ensure the bottom of the card is at 2cm, cut between the 2 lines you just cut – the bottom of your panel should be on the left hand side of the blade
- Rotate the panel 180 degrees and score at 2cm, 6.5cm and 11cm between the 2 cut lines only
- Turn the panel over, front facing down and apply red tape between the 2 cut lines close to the bottom score line
- Line up the tab panel with the edge of the flap and ensure that it’s centred between the 2 sides of the card – adhere to the red tape
- Stamp your sentiment on the tab before sealing the DSP panel to the card base
- It you want to cover something with a bit of dimension like a gift card, as I did, then mount the DSP panel with some dimensionals
- Staple the ribbon to the top of your tab
- Decorate the circles with sentiments of another image and you’re done
Here’s what my card looks like when all the pieces are put together:
