Instructions: This is the basic instructions on how to cut a Z slider card that measures when finished 15 cm x 13.5 cm. Using a white base card stock cut for the card base, 27 cm x 13.5 cm. Make folds at 6 cm and 12 cm across the 27 cm side. Fold these creases to form hill and valley folds. Once the card base is folded, the measurements to be further used will be, 15 cm x 13.5 cm (background), 6 cm x 13.5 cm. (card front foot). Further, cut from the base card stock, 13 cm x 10 cm (card front) and 11.5 cm x 4.5 cm (card front slide). This can now be matted with the red contrasting card stock. All matting and design papers are trimmed 2mm smaller each side for each layer used.
Once the card background and the slider card piece is completed, the slider can be adhered to the top center of the card background. NOTE: When the card front is being put together, remember to leave the top of the card between the base and the matting layers open. This is so you can slide the slider between the layers. This part of the card holds it all upright and works as a stand. Adhere the card front to the card foot, making sure you have enough room for the slider to slide into the card front opening.
To make this card, please note, all the stamping is done with the gold embossing powder. Make the card base then, adhere the red matting to the card fronts. Stamp the background image to the winter white card stock twice. The second, so you can fussy cut the lower banner and die cut the sentiment banner. Color both backgrounds as seen in the photo. Stamp the rose with the red cardstock. Shape. Stamp the leaf swirls onto the winter white cardstock then color and die cut. Trim the background to fit the card front. Adhere to the front with double side foam tape. Adhere the sentiment banner also with foam tape. Adhere the fussy cut banner in place. Arrange the leaf swirls, trimming as you go. Adhere the roses in place with the glue gun. To finish the card apply a little stickles to give the roses a bit of bling.

From the second piece of this pattern I cut out some of the large roses that I later shaped and adhered to the background using 3D foam tape. On each side of the green scroll I used a craft knife to cut the inside edge about 6 inches on either side. I then cut a strip of the dark green patterned paper that is 5.5" wide, also cut out the purple rose border strip and add it to the dark green patterned paper.

Other Products: White Card Stock, Purple Card Stock, Velum, Versamark, Black Opal Embossing Powder, ColorBox Wisteria Chalk Ink, Peeled Paint Distressed Ink, Derwent Water Color Pencils (Red Violet Lake, Straw Yellow and May Green), Sugar Glitter Paste, Crystal Centers and die cutting machine
Instructions: This card measures approximately 5" x 7". To create this card, start by cutting a piece of purple card stock 5" x 9" and score on the 5" edge 2" in so you have a 5" x 7" and a 2" x 5" section. Next cut 2 additional purple panels, the first one 3" x 5" and the second 2 1/2" x 5". Also I decided the card front needed a little something more so I also cut a piece of Velum 5" x 7". The last pieces needed are a 4 3/4" x 6 3/4" piece of white cardstock for the inside and 3 panels cut from paper from the Blushing Rose Paper Collection. The 3 panels measure 1 3/4" x 4 3/4", 2 3/4" x 4 3/4" and 2 1/4" x 4 3/4".
To assemble the card start by folding your largest piece of Purple card stock on the score line and attach the velum to the inside of the flap. When closed you will have a 5" x 7" card that opens from the bottom. Next attach the designer paper panel that measures 1 3/4" x 4 3/4" to the front of the card. Now you will be left with 2 purple pieces and 2 designer paper pieces. Attach the pieces together matching up the sizes so that the designer paper is slightly smaller then the Purple card stock. Once your glue is dry, attach the 3" x 5" panel to the bottom of the velum and finally attach the last panel as shown. I centered this panel top to bottom and about 1" in from the right side but you can attach it anywhere you see fit. Tip: I found the card a little too flexible so I layered another piece of Purple card stock on the inside of the front cover that matches so that you have a little more strength.
