Howdy girls .. Well tomorrow is the BIG day OH MY that came way to fast .. Hopefully the time Rich is away will go even faster . I made this card for my hubby again .. Ya know he is always on my mind right ? This is one of those super cute templates I mentions awhile back about .. I used cool Caribbean for the base of my card and whisper white for the inside slider . Here's a tutorial for this template .. remember you can always make a base card with no images and keep directions on the back side for future reference ..ok back to the tutorial .. You will need 1 piece of Cardstock( mine is cool Caribbean ) cut at 4 1/4 X 8 1/2
bone folder , cutter and pencil with
score at 2 1/4 on each end of the cool Caribbean .. find the center of each end at 2 3/4 make a Lt. pencil mark there when you find center .
Fold to make card sleeve and adhere together in the center and the apply your sq image on top of your triangle points making sure not to get any adhesive on the inside of your card since you want the whisper white piece to be able to slide inside Thats it .
This is what the card looks like with the slider pulled out ( whisper white ) ..( This photo I wanted you to see the alligator so it is pulled out some what but you get the idea .. I also just added the slit punch and a eyelet to the one end so the slider doesn't fall out from one of the ends ..Plus I thought it looked cute ..
Remember you can click on any of the smaller photos to view larger and I hope this helps you make a really cute template for your next card ..
