Slider Dinosaur Card

Slider cards are simple, but they add a fun twist to an ordinary card. All you need are some small coins and 3D foam tape to create the slider element. This then fits into a slot in the card so it can move from side to side. Once you have mastered the basic slider, you can apply this technique to most stamps and die-cuts in your stash.

YOU WILL NEED:
Stamps, Lawn Fawn Critters From The Past
Dies: Lawn Fawn Critters From The Past
Ink pad, Versafine onyx black
Small coins

METHOD:
1 Stick 9.5cm x 12.5cm of pale blue card to the top of a 13cm square top-folding white blank. Add a 3cm x 9.5cm strip of pale green 1cm up from the bottom edge of the pale blue.

2 Wavy cut one edge of pale green card, 6.5cm x 9.5cm, then follow the step-by-step to sandwich two coins together and cut a slot 2cm up from the bottom edge. Attach the panel to the blank with 3D foam tape, in line with the pale green.

3 Stamp, colour and die cut three trees, a stegosaurus and a baby dinosaur. Position and glue the trees, using 3D foam pads behind the leaves. To finish, fix the spiky dinosaur to the slider and the baby dinosaur to the bottom-right along with a stamped sentiment.
