Magic Color Slider Cards: 3 Ways + Giveaway!

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!

[All supplies are linked in the thumbnails at the end of this post and in the post text. Compensated affiliate links used at no cost to you. To watch the video in HD on YouTube, click HERE.]

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!

Magic slider cards are a lot of fun. For more ideas, check out THIS video by Kelly Marie Alvarez, the owner of Lawn Fawn. She is the best!


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.

You can find the set HERE.

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.)

  1. I’m still learning a whole lot, I only ever made my first shaker card a couple months ago! These slider cards are uper sweet though, and I love your videos, they make the most intimidating look doable!

  2. Hello Jennifer. I am a senior (or re-conditioned teenager) 86 years old and still trying new things. I have not seen your posts before and am VERY impressed. I thank you so much for the opportunity to win something and will try to follow your blog. Today I am about to make my first shaker card and am a little nervous of doing so as I am registered as low-vision and don’t see straight lines!.
    Thanks again for sharing.
    Marie P.

  3. I only made an interactive card once and I loved it! It does take a bit more effort but the results are always worth it!

  4. I’ve never made any interactive cards, but can imagine myself totally over-engineering them when I eventually try them out!
    Thanks for sharing the fun projects and product info!

  5. Great video Jennifer, I love how you make the 3 slider cards so different using the same products. I’ve made interactive cards before but always feel a little intimidated by magic slider cards, however with this die it looks fairly straightforward. Thanks for the chance to win x x

  6. I made a lot of shaker cards, and I tried a skiing penguin card with a coin inside (I’m not sure about the name of the technique, but I’m sure you know what I’m talking about.).

  7. I’ve only just started making shaker cards and would love to get more into these interactive cards. They look so cute!

  8. I have made some shaker cards and some simpler interactive cards. Thanks for the chance to win the Lawn Fawn Magic Color Slider Die Set. These look like they would be a lot of fun to make. My daughter LOVES Lawn Fawn, so if I were lucky enough to win, I MIGHT give it to her. (Might is the operative word)!

  9. Wow! You make all things you do look so easy and beautiful! (I know you hear this from many people but its true!) Personally I haven’t done any interactive cards, but you sure gave ideas! Here in México is so hard to find things. But I can work with what I have. Thanks for sharing! God Bless 🙂

  10. I made slider cards 20 years ago when there were no dies. I so want the Lawn Fawn Magic Color Slider Die. It makes creating magic slider cards so much easier and fun.

  11. I have never made a slider card but looking at your three darling cards using the Lawn Fawn set inspires me to get busy and make some. I bought the limited addition set from Simon Says last month and will begin with that. I intend to buy the Lawn Fawn slider set you used so that my first slider cards will be easy, as you suggested. I have quite a few Lawn Fawn stamps and dies and use them often to make cards and send to my great-granddaughter who is 1-1/2 years old. She loves getting cards from her Gigi. And Lawn Fawn makes just darling stamps. I love your work too and you constantly give me good ideas. You are the best. Thank you.

  12. I have made shaker cards, slider cards, traveling cards and waterfall cards in the past. Lovin’ the new dies which make it so much easier.

  13. Oh I love interactive cards. The effort is so worth it to see the look on the recipient’s face. I love making shaker cards and twisty cards.

  14. WOW – these cards really are MAGICAL!
    I LOVE fancy folds, making lots of pop-up box cards, just finishing making a bundle for Christmas, usually making them for birthdays. Our niece is expecting twins early next year, so I am still thinking about a special design for their card 🙂

  15. I love your utube channel and videos. They always cheer me up. I have 8 grands and they love interactive cards.!
    Thank you so much for all you give to your work and for sharing yourseld with us.
