Rainbow Magic Slider
by Trina Pham



Hello everyone.  No Valentine’s / heart card today.  Instead I’m sharing a fun and colorful magic slider card featuring the Arched Collage die.  Confused with the “colorful” description from the picture above? 🤔   Then see it in action in the video below! 😉




I’ve only made this type of card using stamps and wanted to try it with dies.  Started by trimming a white top folding card base and a piece of mixed media paper to 4.25”x5”.  The width was 0.5” shorter than a regular A2 size to accommodate for the slider pull tab handle.  Next, die cut the Arched Collage from the mixed media piece, which leaves a negative cut.  This will be the front.




The cutout arches were coloured in rainbow order with Copic markers.  Adhered the negative cut front piece on top of the card base with temporary adhesive and used it as a guide to adhere the colored arches directly onto the card base like so.




For the slider, it was cut to 3.5”x5.5” from white woodgrain paper.  Dies from Rectangle Basics were then used to partial die cut a t-shape on one end and a notch for the slider pull tab handle on the other end.  No measuring… just eyeballed it.




Acetate was then adhered to the back of the front piece.  Still working on the back, strips of thick white cardstock (could use foam / mounting tape here instead) were adhered to three sides to create a channel for the slider to move back and forth.  To help guide the slider and provide a stopper, a stabilizer was created by wrapping a strip of 0.5” copy paper onto itself around the slider piece. 




Note: Very important to add glue only on the outside of the stabilizer and the perimeter strips when assembling the card… otherwise, it will interfere with the sliding action.




A circle was die cut from black cardstock and folded in half to create the slider pull tab handle.  The Hello Friend posh script was die cut from Bristol paper 3x and stacked for dimension before mounting onto its black shadow.   




For a polished look, a frame was added to the front.  The clouds were die cut from white woodgrain paper as well and their edges inked with a finger brush and Tumbled Glass distress ink.  Assembled the card then hand printed “pull” with a white gel pen on the slider pull tab handle to finish.



Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful week, especially if you are celebrating Valentine’s day.
