When completed this slider card measures 8 1/4" x 7"

Step 1: Using the A4 card-stock make 2 x, 2" fold lines in the long edge of the card-stock. Make the folds into a hill and valley fold. This will be your card back base. Cut your card for the card front base 5 1/2" x 7 3/4". The slider stop, 1 1/2" x 4".

There is a step-by-step tutorial on how to assemble the card base HERE

Cut your papers to fit the base card back, front and slider. This can be cut from one sheet of design paper. If you chose a paper with a one way print, you will need two paper sheets. Bring colour to the paper edges with the distress ink. Distress again the edges with the paper distresser.




Step 2: Adhere all the papers to the appropriate card-stock bases. For the card front base design paper, do not apply tape to the full width of the top of the paper as this needs to be left open for the slider stop to slip up and down.




Step 3: Stamp, cut, colour and shape all the embellishments needed for the card. The frame is stamped once with the gold embossing powder. Die cut 6 extra frames. Adhere all 7 together. Stamp the bear image x2. Cut the bear image x 10. Adhere 1 of the stamped images plus 5 of the die cuts. Taking the remaining bear image and cut the bear away from the tree. Adhere this to the remaining die cut images, then trim away the tree so only the bear is remaining. The Tim Holtz red handled scissors are best for this job. When the images are colored, glue the cut away bear to the bear on the tree. This will give depth to the images. Taking the word Love from the combo set and stamp with the gold embossing powder, die cut 4 extra cuts and adhere together. Stamp the bee's twice and die cut extra x6. One set of bee's has 4 layers and the other has 2. Cut the left side of the frame so you can later extend the frame.

3D Stamp Paint used in this step:

FLOWERS: Rose, Magenta

LEAVES: Moss green, Grass Green

LOVE: Walnut Brown

FRAME: Gold, Walnut Brown

BEAR: Gold, Walnut Brown





Step 4: Stamp the beehive and bee part of the stamp as shown, this is so the bees will show through later. When doing this you need to play a little with the placement of the frame to see where to stamp.



Step :5

Placement of embellishments: Using 3D foam dots and the hot glue gun to adhere the bear and tree to the card front. Continue to use the hot glue gun and glue where needed. Adhere the frame, one piece each side of the tree and bear. Add the leaves, trimming the swirls away as needed. Building layers of leaves, rose swirls, roses and rose buds. Slip the word 'Love' between the leaves and swirls. Adhere the bee's here and there on the card front and sides on the card back.




Step 6: To finish the card, slip the slider stop between the card-stock card front and the design paper card front and apply the diamond stickles to the roses and rose buds, all the bee wings and the small stamped bee's by the tree.




And a close up from the finished card!

Really beautiful. The classic rose stamp and coordinating die are next on my wish list. I have the sunflower and just love it so much. I find coloring and shaping flowers very relaxing.

Your card is beautiful. Do you know where I can buy the bear with the new best in the tree? It is not available through Heartfelt Creations?

This card is absolutely beautiful! There are so many elements to see. The roses are beautiful. This is sure to take some time to make but the results are dramatic. Did you use the stamp paint? I have never used this product.

You had a great booth at the Denver show and your associates were very helpful. The class on the classic rose was very helpful and I learned a great deal from Jennifer. She is a great teacher. Thanks for the wonderful door prizes. Hope you plan to attend the show next year. Have a delightful day, Carol Grimmer
