Slider Card

HI everyone,
I hope you are all having a great week so far. I seem to be going in circles and not getting too much done. Lots of projects on the go...just none of them finished!! LOL

This card is made from a metal template. It is a great template because you can't cut through it. It can be a little hard on the knife blades, if you are straight challenged like I am. As long as you keep your fingers clear of the knife all is good!!
There is 3 cutting sections to this template. The front with the circle cut out, the inside frame and the inner sliding section. I'm sure it could be done without the template but this is so much quicker.
The stamp is a clear set from Impression Obsession. I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I also used some stickles. The scallop circle is from my nesties.

I didn't stamp the words inside until it was all glue up. I used removable tape on the circle and removed it when I decided where to stamp, then used foam tape to stick it down when I had the inside completely stamped. I didn't use any stickles on the inside, it might not slide well.

Well there you have it. Sounds like a lot of work, but it's very quick and easy after you get the first one done.

I hope you like it, thanks for stopping by.



I received this award yesterday from Sharon. What a sweetheart for her to think of me. THANK YOU so much, Sharon. I must pass this on to 7 more people, which is so difficult because I love all your blogs, so I am passing it on to people that I think don't have it yet.
Here goes:

Don't forget to pass it on ladies, and have a great day.
