How to make a slider card.
A new challenge started today on the Penny’s Crafty-Paper challenge blog. The theme, as always, is “Anything goes using paper.”
Our sponsors are:
For this challenge, I used the image “Santa Skidoo” from Doctor Digi house of stamps.
- Slimline card base. You will need a piece of white card stock measuring 21 centimeters by 21 centimeters. Score at 10,5 centimeters.
- Piece of white card stock measuring 10,5 centimeters by 21 centimeters. This is for your background.
- Piece of white card stock from which to make your snow hill.
- DCP paper to print your image on.
Digital stamp and coloring
I printed my image on DCP paper and colored it in with my alcohol markers.
- Faces: Sand (107), Peachy Blush (259), Salmon pink (25), Barely beige (29).
- Beard: Cool grey 4 (CG4), Cool grey 1 (CG1) and Colorless blender (0).
- Suit and hat: Wine Red (01), Burgundy (247) and English Red (249).
- Lights: Deep Yellow (32), Lemon Yellow (35), Pastel Lemon (39) and Canari Yellow (44).
- Snowmobile: Dark Green (51), Forest Green (50), Grass Green (47), Vived Green (46) and Weeds Green (162).
- Ski’s: Cool Grey 8 (CG8), Cool Grey 5 (CG5), Cool Grey 4 (CG4) and Cool Grey 1 (CG1).
First, I die-cut a panel with a slimline die. I use this panel to make my sky. I don’t need to ink the whole panel, as there will be a snow panel on top of this panel.
For the sky I use my chalk ink. I use the following colors:
- Back tulip 78.
- Noble blue 29.
- Blue Berry 78.
- Bright eyes 80.
Now it’s time to make the snow hill. I use a piece of white card stock and decide where I want the snow hill to start. I use a die, which is meant to make waves, but I use it to make my hill. On the edges of my hill, I apply some purple ink. I used the color Pastel purple (65).
Making the slider part.
On the snow mound panel, I make my sliding part to move the snowmobile.
Based on the picture, I determine where the sliding part should be. Where I think it should not be higher or lower, I draw a line with a pencil. I made the sliding section 1.5 centimetres wide. Both edges of the sliding section are 4,5 centimeters from the edge.
Now it’s time to make the mechanism behind the digital stamp what makes it move. I die-cut 4 small circles out of white card stock. I make two mechanisms on the back of the digital stamp. I put two circles on top of each other with foam tape in between.
You stick the circles behind the digital stamp where you want the slider to stop. For me, that was at the very bottom, so that is stops exactly above the sentiment. For the top, I did the mechanism a bit further down, otherwise the picture was too far above the snow hill.
Assembling the card
I glue my background panel onto my card base. I adhere the snow hill with foam tape on top of my background panel. Pay close attention to where you stick the foam tape, so it doesn’t get in the way of your sliding mechanism.
Behind Santa a place a tree and in the sky a red star. And the card is done.

Dr Digi has some of the best fun images for cards. This Santa is super fun. He reminds me of my husband’s grandpa. Great card with the image.
