TO MAKE THE ‘Z’ SLIDER CARD FROM A4 cardstock. This Z slider card fits into an envelope that measures 22 cm x 21 cm when completed. To make the card base: Taking the A4 cardstock, score at 6 cm and at 12 cm along the long edge. Fold this into valley and hill folds. This will form the card front foot (6 cm x 20.8 cm) and card front background (17.7 cm x 20.8 cm). For the slider, cut 11.5 cm x 7 cm. For the card front, cut 14 cm x 17 cm. All the matting layers will be cut at 2 mm smaller each side. For the card slider guide, cut from the card stock a band measuring13.5 cm x 7 cm. Cut a half circle into one of the 13.5 cm edge. This will be the top edge so you can slide the slider easily into the guide when the card is finished. Adhere in place to the back of the card front. Adhere the slider to the top center of the card background. Adhere the card front to the center of the card foot. Slide the slider in to place. Make and adhere all the embellishments to the card front. When adding the slider decoration, make sure the slider still slides before securing with glue. Follow the instructions below on how to decorate this card. Find from the paper pad the design paper needed and cut to fit the slider card panels. Cut first the card front, as you will be a little short to cover the total back card panel. This does not matter, as you will not see this when the card is completed. Now cut the card foot and slider from the remaining paper. Ink the edges with the faded jeans ink then distress the edges with the distressing tool. Adhere in place. Taking the crème card stock die cut the house and roof three times each. Emboss the house with the embossing folder; first apply the gathered twigs to one side of the folder before running it through the machine. This will give you the brick print in the embossing. Apply the gathered twig ink to the roof and all sides of the house. Stamp all the images needed for this card, make lots of them, as there are many layers. With the pencils bring color to the image out lines then with the brush then water drag the color. This is the method I used to do the coloring for this card. Once you have brought color and die cut the images, shape them with the flower shaping tool kit. The windows and door are adhered with the double-sided foam tape and clear drying glue. The rest of the images are adhered with glue and double sided foam tape where needed. When all is secure and dry, apply the stickles to the flower centers, windows, door, toadstool and any where else you think it needs it to give a sparkly bling feel to the card.
