Slider Card Tutorial and Lagoon Blog Hop

Create a fun slider card with materials from Club Scrap's Lagoon collection by reading on!

What's the Lagoon collection, you ask? Learn more about it HERE, and participate in an inspiring blog hop featuring the kit starting HERE.

I created a 5x7" version of the slider card structure by following a tutorial that involved scoring first and then cutting the score lines.

I installed the art panel to the front of the slider and placed adhesive only on the lower portion of the mechanism to create a pop-up.

I experimented with revising the method of construction and chose to create a standard 4.25x5.5" card by using one of my favorite tools: the 2x8"Acrylic Grid Ruler. Make an adorable pull tab for the slider with the Vintage Botany mini sticker tags.

The fun greetings for the card came from the Lagoon Greeting sheet. The cute fish is included on the Art Nouveau UM stamp sheet.

A video tutorial is worth a million words, so tune in below to learn how to make the card!

And now it's time to swim over to Pam's blog to see what the tide brings in.

Have a creative day!
