Instructions: The finished size of this card is 17.5 cm x 21 cm. To make the card base: Taking the A4 cardstock and score at 6 cm and at 12 cm along the long edge. Fold into valley and hill folds. This will form the card front foot (6 cm x 20.8 cm) and card front background (17.7 cm x 20.8 cm). For the slider, cut 11.5 cm x 7 cm. For the card front cut 14 cm x 17 cm. All the matting layers will be cut at 2 mm smaller each side. Cut one matting layer in each of the Tan card stock and the design paper found in the paper pad to fit all the card base elements. Distress the design paper edges then you can adhere all the matting layers together with tape or glue. Remember, not to glue the top edge of the card front and the first matting layer. This is so you can slide the slider between the card stock layers. If you forget to do this, don't panic. (Make a band measuring 16.5 cm x 2 cm and adhere to the top back side of the card front. Use this for the slider guide; adhere to the back of the card front.)

Adhere the slider to the top center of the card background front. (Make sure you do not place the glue and double-sided tape too low. If you do this, the card front will not sit flat when closed. If this happens, to fix it, make a slider guide for the back and place it lower in the back.) Adhere the card front to the center of the card foot. Slide the slider in to place.

For the card front decoration: Make and adhere all the embellishments to the card front. NOTE: All the stamping is done with the gold embossing powder. Stamp the dog collar twice and trim to fit. Use the crop-a-dial to make the wholes in the dog collar loops. Make the paw hanger by die cutting once and die cutting extra to give it strength. Adhere the paw layers together using the clear drying glue. Stamp the bones and cut a few extra. Stamp the sentiments onto the bones. Adhere the layers of the bones together for strength the design paper and adhere to the front with the foam dots. Fussy cut the butterfly found in the left over design paper. Once all is in place, apply the star dust stickles to the soap bubbles and butterflies. Apply the Platinum stickles to the flower centers then set aside to dry. This Z slider card fits into an envelope that measures 22 cm x 21 cm when completed.
