The card foot will then measure 2 5/16" x 8 1/4" when the folds are folded into hill and valley folds. Cut the card front, 6 11/16" x 5 1/2" the slider 2 3/4" x 4 1/4". The slider stay: 4 1/4" x 2 3/4". Taking the design paper from the paper collection, cut matting for the card foot, card front, slider and card background about 1/8" smaller than the base. Adhere this to the card base. Cut the second design paper matting for the card front about 1/4" smaller than the card base. Adhere this with 3d foam tape or squares.
Taking the slider, adhere only up to a half of an inch of the top of the slider to the center of the card base background. Taking the slider stop, place this on the back of the card front so the slider will slide up and down to allow the card to stand and lye flat. This slider allows the card to stand without falling when loaded with 3d embellishments. Find the sentiment in the paper collection, cut and adhere to the center of the card front with foam squares.
Stamp, color and die cut all the images from the collection. Cut 4-6 die cuts extra to make into chipboard by adhering in layers.
