A new kind of card (for me, at least!)....

I tried a new kind of card the other day. It's not new in that it's never been seen before but it's new for me! I've tried to make one of these slider easel cards before but I made a right pigs ear of it! Then, when I was watching Cricut card videos on YouTube I came across a tutorial, then had a go myself and whaddayaknow! I made one straight off, no probs!

In the turorial 2 pieces of card were used to make the base card but I just used a C5 card, cut the slider, added the sentiment pull and decorated it. I used gorgeous papers from the A4 Forever Friends Spring Time stack and a cute birdy in a cage cut from blue cardstock shadowed with white. The birdcage was adhered to the front of the card with foam pads. I added a punched, ribbon trimmed border and a rose and ribbon bow to the top of the bird cage and gems to the base. The sentiment was cut from white cardstock and adhered inside the card (this is hidden when the slider is pushed down and revealed when the slider is pulled out as you can see in the photo)If you use a Cricut generated sentiment be sure that it is well adhered as the slider can become caught on it. You could, of course, stamp a sentiment if preferred.

These cards take up a little more room than a conventional easel card but they are such fun to make. I'm addicted!
Carts used:
Bird in cage-Car Decals
