Nativity Pop Up Slider
by Trina Pham


Hello and happy Sunday.  I was playing with more goodies from the current Holiday release to create a fun interactive pop-up slider card.  

To allow the nativity scene to fit nicely on the card, I  made my first A6 size (6.25”x4.5”) card.  To begin, two pieces of cardstock, one white and one black, were trimmed to A6 size.  The white is the front and the black is the back, essentially forming a closed pocket card.  On the front piece, Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet, Dusty Concord and Black Soot distress inks (DI) were blended on.  Stars were added with a white gel pen.

Next, used the 2.5”x7.5” Slim Basic Rectangle die and partial die cut the slider channel, leaving the top uncut across.


Score between those two ends.


Took the open cut end next and fold in half up to the score line.  The arrow points to the area in which the pop-up element will adhere to.

Next, traced the slider channel opening onto the back black piece so that the sentiment can be white heat embossed within that area and show when the tab is pulled.


For the pull tab, a piece of white cardstock was trimmed to 3.5”x6.5” and scored at 0.5” on one end.  Used a pencil to mark 0.5” in from each side, then cut away the two outside squares with scissors.  Could have left it white, but in keeping with the design, ink blended the same colors on it. 


All the pieces (except for the star) from The Nativity House Frame were die cut from black cardstock.  The star was die cut from white glitter paper then colored with a Y000 Copic marker. 


The House Frame Background piece was die cut from white cardstock, then Squeezed Lemonade and Scattered Straw DI were blended on to give it that glow.  With all pieces ready now, the card was assembled to finish. The star was suspended above the house by a piece of acetate.


Here’s a side view.


And that’s it!  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful week.

Gorgeous purple colours and a great nativity scene. You've done a great job on the pop up technique!

WOW! FIrst of all, love the colours you've used on this beautiful card. The bright yellow against the deep purple is such a contrast, that it really does look as though the card is lite!! LOVE the slider element. Always great to add an interactive element to make it a special card.

This card is so amazing! Thank you for the detailed description of how to make this card, I will definitely try one day, although it seems to me that your card will remain an unsurpassed pattern. TFS
