Hello! Magic slider cards are very popular right now so I thought it was time I give them a try! And I came up with three versions for you: a traditional version, one that holds a gift card, and one that reveals a gift card!
To create my magic slider cards, I used the Lawn Fawn Magic Color Slider Die Set. It is very possible to create your own magic slider cards without this die set. However, I decided to use it to show how versatile it can be. It makes slider cards quick to create!
My first card is a magic slider card with a hidden photo. What a sweet surprise this will be when I send it to my friend, Kathy! Be sure to watch the video to see how easy it is to add the photo. The “friends forever” is from the new, limited edition Simon Says Stamp Lawn Fawn Friends Forever Stamp Set (more on that below) and the “lots of love” is from the older Lawn Fawn Little Bundle Stamp Set. I also added Birch Press Hearts Aglow heart die cuts and Lucy’s Cards Iridescent Jewels. I stamped “pull here” from the Lawn Fawn Push Here Stamp Set on the pull tab – and it fits perfect!
And when you pull the tab, the photo is revealed. The “handmade card inside” message on the envelope is from the Flora and Fauna Aviary Love Stamp set. (This was featured on My Favorite Crafty Things List this year, and is now in stock.)
My second magic slider card actually holds a Starbucks gift card. I plan to give this one to a teacher. I again used the Lawn Fawn Magic Color Slider Die Set and Simon Says Stamp Lawn Fawn Friends Forever Stamp Set. It looks a bit silly from the front, but once you pull the tab, it all makes sense…
Isn’t that doggie the cutest? I added snowflakes and Lucy’s Cards Iridescent Jewels for a bit of sparkle. What a fun way to present a gift card… and it fits perfectly!
My third and final card is a simple take on a more traditional magic slider card. For this one, you see an outline, silver heat embossed image when the card is closed. But when you pull the tab, the image is colored and more of the greeting is revealed. Since I heat embossed on the acetate, I was sure to use Judikins Embossable Window Plastic so it could handle the heat. I again used the Lawn Fawn Magic Color Slider Die Set and Simon Says Stamp Lawn Fawn Friends Forever Stamp Set.
And here is the inside. That mouse is too cute!

Today I am part of a fun blog hop celebrating the release of the Simon Says Stamp & Lawn Fawn Cyber Week Exclusive Friends Forever Limited Edition Stamp Set and coordinating dies! That is a mouthful, but basically means that this stamp set was designed by Lawn Fawn and is only available at Simon Says Stamp. It is limited edition and features a mix of images from a few of their popular stamp sets that are no longer available.
By the way, this stamp set also features images I used on THIS card. Be sure to check it out, too!
It’s time to keep hopping! I am honored to link to my bestie Kristina Werner. You can find her HERE. (You can also start at the beginning of the hop at the Simon Says Stamp blog.)
