Surprise Slider Cards

Hello! A couple weeks ago, I shared a hidden surprise slider card design. Well I am back with another version of this design. However with this card, the large element on the front of the card moves to reveal a hidden sentiment! And no special dies are needed.

If you missed my video a couple weeks ago sharing how to make Hidden Slider Cards, please be sure to watch it first HERE. Today’s video builds on that idea. Also, it is difficult to explain in text how to make these slider features, so be sure to watch today’s video too!

My first few cards feature backgrounds and images from the Concord & 9th Crafty Turnabout Stamp Set (SSS | C9). This is such a fun set! I also used the stamp set along with the Concord & 9th Crafty Turnabout Dies (SSS | C9) to create the element in the center.

When you pull the tab, a “love you” sentiment heart is revealed. The “pull here” is from the Lawn Fawn Push Here Stamp Set.

Here is another card using the same supplies… but with a different orientation. Aren’t those scissors the cutest?

And that “crafty friends are the best” sentiment from the Concord & 9th Crafty Turnabout Stamp Set (SSS | C9) is my favorite ever!

My last card with the Concord & 9th Crafty Turnabout Stamp Set (SSS | C9) and Concord & 9th Crafty Turnabout Dies (SSS | C9) is a bit bright but very fun…

I created a couple holiday cards using the Concord & 9th Deck the Halls Turnabout Stamp Set (SSS | C9) and Concord & 9th Happy Holidays Label Dies (SSS | C9).

When you pull that tab, you see another sentiment… this time from the Concord & 9th Very Merry Stamp Set (SSS | C9).

My last card shows that you can do this type of slider card with other large die shapes. I used the Concord & 9th Snow Flurry Dies (SSS  | C9) and Concord & 9th Snow Flurry Stamp Set (SSS | C9) to create the large snowflake. The “merry” was made with the Concord & 9th Merry & Bright Dies (SSS | C9) … and silver glitter cardstock colored with a Copic Marker. The background features the awesome Concord & 9th Snowflakes Turnabout Stamp Set (SSS | C9).

    Well done Jennifer and thanks for sharing.

  4. Jennifer, these cards are so versatile, any occasion, any theme, any stamp set, these are fantastic ! I personally love that you come up with such varied ideas, you also keep you in mind that not all of us can afford new dies or stamps all the time & you try to cover lots of variations for us. At the end of your videos you thank us for spending our time with you, I hope you do realise that we love spending time with you as you give so much time, information, advice & inspiration to us. Your videos get talked about a lot in the UK for certain. Thank you x

  5. I love your cards and I really love the background look that you get with the turnabout stamps. I just got the crafty turnabout stamp and die set so now I’m anxious to play with it. Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Jennifer! You are just too much fun! Saving this as a favorite. You come up with the best techniques, but also such great color combinations. Remarkable! Thank you!

  7. OMG, Jennifer! This is so great! I was just thinking about creating a card similar to this slider card but based on your previous slider card video. Watching your video made it easier for me to put the mechanism together. I cannot wait to try it. Thank you for coming up with great card ideas!

  8. Great cards. Love that you don,t need to buy more dies to make them slide. Thank you for the great tips. Love your videos.

  9. I love the video with the suprise slider cards you made earlier and this one I love even more. What a great idea, again, these cards can be used for everything. Thank you so much Jennifer for showing and your clear explanation how to make these awesome cards.

  10. Hi Jennifer, I love this idea and that you don’t need any special dies. I was just wondering if there is a reason you put the tape over the acetate to attach it to the cardstock, and not on the acetate to be between the acetate and the cardstock. Not sure if you understand my question. Thanks again for continuing to inspire us with your creative, imaginative works of art.

  11. AMAZING! and the best is NO special dies! I love interactive cards, and these are super! Thanks for working out the details for me and sharing your ideas. These are fantastic!

  12. I’m intrigued by your making it a window suggestion… but how? Wouldn’t a window eliminate the “channel” for the slider mechanism? I’m thinking of a large ornament as a slider!

  13. Jennifer, these are just amazing. So simple to do, and look so impressive. I think I’ve found the style of card for my Godchild’s birthday, I always do something a little different and special for her. Thanks for sharing these and all your talent with us.

  14. Oh my gosh, Jennifer, these cards are so totally the best! I love how they look & how colorful they are. Are they easy to make? I don’t know because I haven’t watched the video. I’m going to though so I can try what you did. If I can do a card like yours, everyone will be so thrilled! Oh yeah, I really love those scissors! They look so real. I love the crafty cards too. I need to get those stamps. You are so clever & creative & I love that! Thanks for showing us your colorful & crafty cards. I love them all!

  15. Fabulous. So easy to make!!! Thanks. Will make more. I love those stamp sets – how unique. Too much stuff to hide from husband!!!!

  16. As with everything you do, these are fantastic! I do not comment often, in fact this is my first time, but I watch your videos frequently and come back to them often as reference. I am a newbie cardmaker and your videos have guided me through everything from basic supplies to advanced techniques. You are a wonderful teacher and a great inspiration.
    I have been missing your videos this past week. Hope everything is ok with you and your family. Really looking forward to see what new wonderful techniques and ideas you come up with. Your kindness and willingness to share are immensely appreciated. God bless.

  17. I absolutely love these cards and can’t wait to give this technique a try. You are so inspirational and I really look forward to watching your videos but sometimes I just have to save them until I have the time to be able to really sit and appreciate them. Keep up the great work, it makes my day to find an email from you in my inbox and know that I have another great video to watch 🙂
