Tutorial of double slider card with surprise sentiment

Interactive double slider card with surprise sentiment tutorial for My Favorite Things.

Hi there! It’s time for another interactive card tutorial on the MFT YouTube channel! I’ve made a cute double slider card with a surprise sentiment that I hope you’ll enjoy.

Before I get into the details, let’s check out the card in action!

As you can see, when we pull the slider panel, a large surprise sentiment appears to the right of the cool cat. He’s so cool that he’s wearing sun glasses indoors! 😉

To create the little scene, I combined products from the adorable March Card Kit with older goodies. I started by adhering one of the patterned papers from the Wallpaper Patterns Paper Pad to a piece of Eiffel Tower Prestige Card Stock. Then I used the largest die from the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 Die-namics to die cut my panel.

In the tutorial, you can see how I cut the slits for the cellophane strip with a craft knife. Here’s a diagram in case you want to recreate the exact same card:

To decorate my panel, I used a bunch of die cut and colored images from the Housecats set. They were mostly left-overs from my MFT March Card Kit Countdown projects, which you can see HERE, HERE and HERE.

I stamped them with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink on Copic friendly card stock, die cut them with matching dies and colored them with the following markers:
