Playtime Elves Slider Card
by Jenny Griffiths

Hello Everyone!

   Ready for a little slider fun and an introduction to a brand new clear stamp set and coordinating die?  Take a look at these adorable "Playtime Elves" having a great time running and sledding in the snow.

  These slider cards are easy to create using the Straight Slider Grooves dies and I have a few steps to show you how this one came together.

  After sponging the center-front of a sky blue note card with broken china distress ink, I stamped the "spread some Cheer" sentiment (included in the set) using my stamp positioning board.  I also added a white strip of card stock (shown) which is positioned to show through the slider channel coming up in the next step.  A fun splattering of white ink imitates falling snow for this wintery scene.

 The photo below shows the Stitched Curves layers adhered together to form the snow drifts.  The longest of the Straight Slider Grooves was cut into the snow drift on the left.  The snow drift panel on the right was cut short (1/2" above the slider groove opening) so that the die only had to cut through one layer of card stock.   The penny shown has double stacked mounting adhesive cut a bit smaller than the width of the slider groove.  A bit of anti-static powder applied to the edges of this mounting adhesive ensures there will be no sticking and the sledding elf can glide effortlessly across the scene.  

  Position the double stacked mounting tape into the slider groove (penny on the reverse side), peel off the protective paper and attach the colored sledding elf.  Generously cover the reverse side with more mounting tape making sure to avoid the area in the path of the penny...you don't want to impede the penny's movement.   Peel off the tape's backing and attach to the blue note card and finish up...

Add the trees, second elf and the heart (all included in this new set) to the playful scene.  In the next few photos note the sledding elf's progress across the note card.

 And now he has made it all the way across the snowy landscape thanks to the slider groove!

 That was fun!  Hope you enjoyed getting a look at the new stamps and dies and feel a bit inspired to create your own cheery sliding scene.
