Magic Slider Card

November 28, 2016

Hi there everyone!

I'm Diana from Moments of Creativity and I'm back with another card that lots of people want to know how to make. You are definitely right, it's magic slider card, a card that will fascinate any child that receives one from you. Today, we'll try to pull back the shroud of secrecy on how to make such a breathtaking card:

To tell you the truth, the magic slider card is a very easy thing to make. You can find lots of video tutorials and written instructions on the Internet nowadays, but I would like to share with you the one that I came across a couple of weeks ago and loved how clearly everything was explained there.

So let's start with the link to this tutorial: http://sovushkaslavia.blogspot.si/2016/11/blog-post.html.
Although it's in Russian, the pictures will give you a clear idea of how the whole trick looks like.

So the main secret is to use two layers - stamp the same image on the acetate and on the cardstock and color it.

And now let's try to put the whole process into step-by-step instructions:
1. Stamp your chosen image once on the acetate and once onto the white cardstock/watercolor paper. Color in the image on the paper as you wish. Then put aside both images for a short time to dry.
2. Once the image on the acetate is dry, place it over the colored image so that it lines up precisely. Hold it in place with some washi tape, and trim the acetate to fit the card. Do this carefully so that the acetate doesn't move off the colored image. They need to be perfectly together.
3. When this part is done, apply Salty Ocean Distress Ink onto the frame and the background of the white cardstock and spritz some water on them.
4. It's now time to start to put the whole card together. Glue the colored image on the card base and the acetate on the frame. This should be done very carefully so that both images go perfectly together.
5. Once this is done, glue the frame on the card base leaving one side unglued/open for a piece of white paper to separate both images and work magic.

And now let's show everything in motion:)

You can see that the image is plain:

But when you slide it, it becomes colored: 

Magic? Definitely yes;)

I hope you liked my little inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by! See you next time!

Yours, Diana

Tigerkid and Monsterkid

Hi, Margreet here.
This is my second creation with the Gerda Steiner Designs Halloween Kids Digital Stamps Bundle.

I die cut the spider and its web and adhered this in the left corner.
Then I colored Tigerkid and Monsterkid with copics, and added some googly eyes.
The black cats (Joy!crafts) were die cut twice.
