Instructions: The finished size of this slider card is 8 1/4" x 7 1/2" (21 cm x 17.5 cm). The card when completed fits into an envelope measuring 9 1/2" x 7 1/2" (24.1 cm x 19 cm). Please note the roses and leaves are stamped with gold embossing powder, the rest is stamped with black archival ink. Make the slider card base. To make the card base take the A4 card stock make 2 folds, being 2 1/4" (6 cm) each to form the foot of the card. Fold this to form a hill and valley fold. Cut the card front base at 5 9/16" x 6 3/4" (14.2 cm x 17.1 cm). The card slider at 2 5/8" x 4 1/2" (6.7 cm x 11.5 cm). The slider stop at 1" x 3 3/4" (9.5 cm x 3 cm).

Taking the Evergreen Bough ink the edges of the card front, card front background, card front foot and slider stop. Find the design paper in the collection and cut a little smaller than the card base back, card front foot and slider stop measurements for the matting. Adhere all together to form the slider card base. Adhere the slider stop in it’s place.

Using the cardstock, stamp, die cut and color the gate. Adhere to the card front with Double Dots or double sided foam tape/squares. Taking a scrap piece of design paper stamp then die cut the banner two times. Trim so you will be able to place the roses and still get the sentiment. For the 3d roses, stamp three layers for each rose. Stamp and die cut two rose swirls from the Blushing Rose Swirl set and one leaf swirls from the Blushing Rose Stems set. Shape, trim and adhere across the center of the gate. Adhere the banner and 3d roses using both the foam 3d tape and hot glue gun across the rose swirls. Taking the cardstock die cut four layers for the “thinking of you” sentiment, adhere the layers together then color with Evergreen Bough ink. Adhere to the card front under the banner and roses. Take the ribbon and make a double triple bow. Adhere to the slider stop with the hot glue gun. Add a snip of the leaf swirl to the bow center knot. Take the pearl centers, trim and place to the leaf snip center. Add a few pearls to behind the banner for interest.
