2 slider cards, featuring the Spellbinders June 2019 Large DOM kit

Hello friends!  Today I’m sharing a couple of slider cards that I made using the Spellbinders June 2019 Large Die of the Month kit (DOM).  This month the kit is called Festive Wreaths Slider, and it includes all the pieces to make a slider card, as well as lots of different themed elements to decorate the wreath, such as stars, hearts, flowers and leaves, and they even included seasonal items like snowflakes, bunnies and Easter eggs.

I created a process video on my YT channel:

 

If you watch my video, you can see how I die cut all the elements, and attach them together to create these cute slider wreath cards.

The first card I created was the pink floral card.

I was still trying to figure out how to use the dies, and my biggest tip would be for you to use heavy weight cardstock for the middle inside panel (the one that you pull).  If you use a light weight cardstock, the slider is flimsy and isn’t as smooth when you try to push it in.  My other tip for you would be to cut the half circle die 3 times instead of 2.  That way, the top of the wreath, the part that isn’t attached to the card, will be sturdier and have a clean look from the back.

For the sentiments for both of my cards, I used the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Machine, and my favorite Everyday Sentiments II hot plate set.

The second card that I created was a gender neutral birthday option, and I used the stars as my embellishments.

You could totally go all the way around the circle with the embellishments, but I liked created just a couple of embellishments on both of my cards.

I just love interactive cards (hence my love of shaker cards), and these were so much fun to create!  I hope you check out my process video, as it is so much easier to show you how to assemble them rather than write out the steps.
