Magic Slider Animation Card

24/04/2018 13:49

  1.  Take a sheet of 160gsm A4 cardstock and on the long side score @ 5 ½” and 11” –discard the excess.
  2. Step 2: Rotate the cardstock 90 degrees counter clockwise and score @ 4” and 8” (keep the excess for now)
  3.  Discard the top right hand corner.Fold the top left behind the bottom left.
  4. Fold the bottom right over the bottom left – this will be the front of the card and you can decorate it at this stage.
  5. Place your stamp where you want it to go, then take your rectangle die and place over the top. Remove the stamp and put the cardstock with die through your die cutting machine. Discard the middle.
  6. Place your stamp in the cut out rectangle and put the whole thing in your stamp platform, making sure the stamp is as straight as possible for the animation technique to work, and stamp your image.
  7. Open up the front and take a ruler and make a dot lining up the top edge of the cut out rectangle and the bottom edge on the fold line. Make a slit with a craft knife inbetween these two points.
  8. Take an animation grid and trim 2cm from the bottom. The grid has a wider clear side, make this your slider pull.
  9. Place your grid over the stamped image and line up with the two black dots you made for the slit. Trim in from there (top and bottom) approximately 3 black lines. This gives enough for the animation to work and not pop out at the other side.
  10. Before affixing together, take a circle punch or small circle die and punch a semi-circle to create the finger pull. Then add the animation grid. Affix the side with the excess with dst and pritt stick and fold behind. Finally, stamp your sentiment on the inside.

  1. Take cardstock and score @ 1 cm, 2 ½ cm, 18 ½ cm, 20 cm, one sheet only at this moment in time. This will create the shadowbox.
  2. Next, take a Distress Oxide ink (any colour, it’s random) and ink up the mini blending pad. Swoosh on your glass (blends the colour better than just adding straight to cardstock) then apply to your cardstock. Fill the sheet with all the colours.
  3. Next, take your water spray and drop random drops over your cardstock. Remember, Oxides are water reactive. Heat set with your heat gun. Add more water droplets as necessary, until you are happy. Remember to heat set.
  4. Now, score your decorated cardstock @ 1cm, 2 ½ cm, 18 ½ cm, 20 cm. Then die cut the middle, keeping the die cut middle piece.
  5. With the die cut middle piece, place the hot foil, grey side to cardstock and place in your heated hot foil machine. When it has heated, take the whole thing and run through your die cutting machine. Remove from press and remove the excess foil. Put the hot foiled die cut piece to one side.
  6. Take your 2 pieces of cardstock and affix together. Take your hot foiled die cut piece and affix to the inside of the cardstock, lining up with the front for placement.
