BSS MONDAY IDEA - A Slider Card - Are we there Yet.

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

Today's idea is a Slider Card.

Had not made one of these in awhile.  While shopping at BSS recently, Sharon showed me a new die that makes the slit or channel that you want to slide, and the pull tab and sliding mechanism.
Now, I have to admit the directions are very limited  that come with the die, but they have a video tutorial
on their website with step by step instructions. See link below.

Here is my card:
Click the images to see them larger for detail.

What I used:

White card stock card base 71/2 inches long by 7 inches wide
scored and folded in half
Blue card stock mat, 7 x 3 inches,  centered and adhered to the white
card base
White card stock mat 6 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches.  I embossed
with the Sizzix brick wall AFTER cutting the slider opening
with the CutUps Slider die 057 by The cat's Pajamas.
Because I made a long card, I cut it twice for one continuous 
opening, by laying the die down overlapping the first cut by
about 1/2 inch.  The slider opening is about 1/2 up from the bottom
on the white card stock mat.  After you cut the opening
do your embossing.  Now just place foam tape or dots 
right along the edge and at the corners.  Use small pieces
so your insert with your message slides through the end opening easily.
Don't forget to leave the end open so your message card will
slide in.  Once you have the mat with the slider in place, attach
one end of the slider mechanism to your image that will slide and
the other end will be attached to the insert, so when you pull the insert
out, your image will ride along the slit.
Finish off your card by attaching the pull tab to your slider paper.
