Pink and Main Christmas truck slider



When I saw the Pink and Main Seasonal Truck I knew it had to be a slider. Gone are the days of gluing heavy pennies together. Now you can use a light weight glider to make sliders. There are 2 types; one will allow the topper to spin and the other will keep the topper from spinning so it will glide across the card. This is great if you want something like a truck to slide across the card. I bought mine at Simon says stamps but Amazon also has them. Also, when I made a sample I had something happen I have never had happen when I make a slider card. The paper frayed and the slider wouldn’t work. So, I changed my design to make sure this never happens again.

Directions

1. Decide where you want the slider and cut out the slider track from the 4 ¾ x 6 ¾ white paper. For the slider I bought I needed a ¼ inch track. Other brands may be different. Keep the track cut out and place the track cut out and paper on a sticky mat and stamp the trees.

2. Tear a scrap paper and use as a mask for the road along the bottom inch of the card. Color in the sky with Power Blue and Sea Glass.

3. Stamp the sentiment on the front above the trees.

4. Die cut the tree and truck using the combo die.

5. Stamp the truck on the die cut then line up the tree and stamp. Color the truck and tree. Add glossy accents to the windows and wheels.

6. Cut a large rectangle out of the mirror card bigger than the slider track.

7. Glue the background to the mirror card. Attack 1/8-inch foam to the back of the mirror card.

8. Glue the 5x7 print paper to the front of the card base then attach the background to the card base.

9. Slide the glider into the track and glue the truck to the glider.
