Weekly Blog Project - Pop up Slider

Good Morning everyone, hope you are all happy and well. It's my turn ( Donna ) to show you a project and tutorial made using some gorgeous Little Claire's goodies.

Here is the finished card....

You will need : Butterfly Tree stamp set.
Kraft & green coloured card
Dovecraft Princess Fairytale patterned paper
Spellbinders Labels 8 & Small circle & Scallop circles 
Memory Box Spring Border die
Martha Stewart Butterfly punch
Scrap of acetate
Spotty ribbon 
.....and here are the instructions.

a) Using a piece of card measuring 28cm x 15cm sore as shown above at 2 1/2cm, 7cm, 9 1/2cm, 14cm, 18 1/2cm, 21cm & 25 1/2cm. 

b) Cut a 10 1/2cm x 2mm slot in the middle of the 14cm score line as shown below.

c) Die cut the largest Labels 8 in kraft & patterned paper and emboss both. (a little tip - trim off the embossed edge of the patterned paper to create a thin border ). Stamp the Butterfly tree, colour and glitter and die cut with 2nd largest labels 8. As shown below.

d) Promarker colours are....

e) Cut a piece of Kraft card measuring 9 1/2cm x 3 cm.


f) Then stick to the bottom of Kraft Label 8 as shown below.

g) Fold the large, scored piece (the base) as shown below.

h) Insert the Kraft label into slot and glue the added piece onto the center of End A as shown below.

i) Glue end A to end B as shown below.

j) Slide down the base so card stands.

k) Stick on patterned paper as shown.

l) Decorate and embellish with sentiment, ribbon & die cuts. I've attached the butterflies with some thin strips of acetate so it appears they are fluttering around. Please be careful only to put embellishments on the base and very top of the label at this point, otherwise the card won't slide flat to put in an envelope.

I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial and will have a go at making one for yourself. If you do, please let us know as we would love to call by your blog and have a peek at what you have created.

Huge Hugs Donna x
