Heartfelt Creations Products And Products Carried By Heartfelt Creations:

Other Products Used:
 Ranger: Heat gun, Diamond stickles, Water colouring brush, Peeled paint and Forest moss distress inks. Aquarelle paper. Winter white and Green card stock.Versa-mark, Fussy cutting scissors,  Foam tape, Spellbinders embossing folder - Splattered circles, 
Chameleon pens tint of color Olive green OL3. ‘Want-2-Scrap’  Self adhesive bling half pearls. 

This is basic instructions on how to cut a Z slider card that measures when finished15 cm x 13.5 cm. Using a winter white base card stock cut for the card base, 27 cm x 13.5 cm. Make folds at 6 cm and 12 cm across the 27 cm side. Fold these creases to form hill and valley folds. Once the card base is folded, the measurements to be further used will be, 15 cm x 13.5 cm (background), 6 cm x 13.5 cm. (card front foot). Further, cut from the base card stock, 13 cm x 10 cm (card front) and 11.5 cm x 4.5 cm (card front slide).Cut all the contrasting matting and design papers 2mm smaller each side for each layer used. Once the card background and the slider card piece is completed with the matting, the slider can be adhered to the top centre of the card background. NOTE: When the card front is being put together, leave the top of the card between the base and the matting layers open. This is so you can slide the slider between the layers. This part of the card holds it all upright and works as a stand. Adhere the card front to the card foot, making sure you have enough room for the slider to slide into the card front opening. To make the Z card base for this card cut two mattings. The first green and the second white, this will be embossed with the embossing folder. Adhere the matting layers to the card base. Remembering to leave the top open for the slider. Taking the aquarelle paper, stamp twice both sizes of the rose stems from the ‘Blushing Rose Stem’ stamp set. Colour, using the distress inks, then die cut the stamped shapes. Stamp the sentiment, then cut into a banner for across the card front. Bring the olive colour to the half pearls with the Chameleon pen. Apply to the banner ends. Adhere the rose stems and banner in place using foam tape/ squares to adhere the front roses to give depth to the embellishment. To finish the card, apply the diamond stickles to the stems and leaf centres.

A simple but elegant card. this stamp set is fantastic with the gold embossing, it catches the water colouring just how I like it.
