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. Yes I’ve made several interactive cards but not sliders. Love the cards, you always have such great ideas. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love to make interactive cards! I finally gave in and ordered the LawnFawn magic slider die after watching this video!

  3. I haven’t ever made an interactive card. I guess I’ve been a bit intimidated by cutting all the parts to fit. So Lawn Fawn’s die cut set is a great idea! Thanks for the chance to win.

  4. i haven’t ever made such a card just because i didn’t knew how to make it. Now that i know i want this die!!!

  5. Hello Jennifer from Southern Ontario Canada. Thanks for all the fun ways to use the slider dies. I’ve made pop up cards and sliders before the hard way lol. Love your videos. You are very talented and easy to follow. Thanks for the chance to win this handy die set!

  6. What a gorgeous cards and a great way to give a giftcard, I loved that one.
    In answer of your question, no I have never made a interacive card but I must say that they are very cool to make and to give/send, so perhaps I have to give it a try.

  7. I may have made one a long time ago but had forgotten how it was done. I love home easy the lawn Fawn slider card set helps to create it along with your video. Very cute love the picture card. So special. Thank You again Jennifer.🎄

  8. I love interactive cards! I haven’t made as many as I would like to, because I’m often under-confident about getting the measurements and mechanisms just right, but I have lots of ideas I’d love to do in card form. I especially like to do wordplay and/or visual puns on cards, and the slider “reveal” is a great way to do it! Thank you for the chance to win this die set (I’ve been wanting it since watching the Lawn Fawn video a few months back)!

  9. Recently I made 120 save the date slider cards for my sons upcoming wedding and everyone loved them. They were so time consuming to make and I made quite a few mistakes that had to be thrown away. This magic slider die would have been really handy. Love the products Lawn Fawn make and even though I won’t be making any more save the date cards, I definately have to get myself the Magic Slider Die Set. Thank you Jennifer for introducing this die to me.

  10. These are adorable. I havent been engaged in making interactive cards because of my cutting skills. These dies will sure make it easy. I would love to own them. Thank you Jennifer

  11. Love making interactive cards, but some styles are very difficult to line up correctly. This Magic Slider set would definitely ease the job.

  12. I do love to make interactive cards! This die would simplify making interactive cards! Thanks for the adorable cards and for the opportunity to win!

  13. I have never done a slider card. They sort of look like they might be fun to make.
    But all your cards are pretty, no matter what you do. You have a special talent.

  14. Superb post. I think this is the best post of 2017 for me. I’ve not done any slider cards yet as ive fiñd the process a little to much for me to contemplate doing them, however youve made them look so easy to do. When you do a video, you tell about the actual card making process which makes me listen properly (many people waffle on about the weather and family life ect, and although I don’t mind them doing it, it does distract me from the main point of the video = cardmaking lol. ) You speak very clear and concise and really make everything you do look easy. These slider card dies are 100% on my christmas list. (Which is so long hu by would have to have a big win on the lotto to buy it all 🤣) Thankyou jennifer once again for sharing your talent. Xx

  15. I have done a few interactive cards…basic shaker card, a pop up card and a box card. I need alot of practice however as I am new to them. I have never done a slider card and as always you do an excellent video, so professional and informative, yet fun. So I really want to try it. Excellent idea for gift cards!! Thanks for the ideas!!

  16. I love all of your cards. Yes, I love to make interactive cards but I don’t have this set. Thank you for the inspiration.
    God bless,

  17. Lovely cards as always Jennifer! I do like to make interactive cards, and have made a waterfall element as well as slider cards in the past, but this die set did not exist in those days! Thank you for sharing your beautiful inspiration! Hugs-Raquel

  18. I love interactive cards! The only ones I know how to make are shaker cards and Lawn Fawn’s “Scalloped Pop-Up Box Card”. But I love this magic slider die. I will have to put it on my Christmas wishlist.

  19. Interactive cards are so much fun and these slider cards are really sweet. Clever the way you used the slider card for a gift card. Thanks so much for another great video full of tips and inspiration!

  20. I have not made any interactive cards yet, new to card making so still working on building up basic supplies, but I definitely want to make interactive cards in the future!

  21. I always enjoy your videos. Especially the way you expand uses for the products you use. I have made a couple of shaker cards, but no sliders-yet. I love them-especially the magic color ones, and have watched several videos on it, but dont have the die set and am still a bit intimidated to try to “fudge” one… I liked the gift card idea as well-a fun way to give a boring gift :). I am hoping to win the die set so I can actually start on those sliders! Thanks for the opportunity.

  22. Interactive cards are my favorite to make. I like this version of sliders so much better than the normal magic color slider cards.

  23. So super creative to create a gift card slider …. you always offer such innovative ways to use these sets! I’m so inspired by you 🙂

  24. I am so excited to try making these interactive cards. I love the look of them and I think they would brighten someones day!

  25. I love your interactive cards! I have made some pop up cards but I will definitely try your slider cards – the die set would help so much. Thank you for sharing!

  26. I’ve never made an interactive card before but your cards have inspired me to try them! I’m in love with the mouse card. I love how he suddenly is colored. The best friend card is something I’ll definitely make for my bestie.

  27. Well if a shaker card is considered to be interactive then, yes, I’ve made quite a few of them. But the kind you made… no, unfortunately I have not. They’ definitely cute, but I’ve been too intimidated to actually try making one. Lawn Fawn certainly has the tools to make them and this die set may be just what I need to try.

  28. Interactive cards are so fun! Because they are usually time intensive, I typically only make them for special people 🙂

  29. I’ve never done an interactive card before, I’m new in card making. You have great ideas! I will make a few ones in the future.
