Instructions: The finished size of this Z slider card is 13.5 cm x 15 cm. Taking the white card stock, cut for the card base at 27 cm x 13.5 cm. To form the Z card base make folds at 6 cm and 12 cm across the 27 cm measurement. 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 white card stock, 13 cm x 10 cm (card front) and 11.5 cm x 4.5 cm (card slide). This can now be matted with contrasting card stock and or design paper. All matting and design papers are trimmed 2mm smaller each side for each layer used.
Once the card background and the slider card piece are completed, the slider can be adhered to the top center of the card background. 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 decorate the card front, Cut the green card stock to size and adhere in place. Cut the dark green design paper to fit the card front base and slider. Edge the card base front design paper with gold embossing powder, do the same to a circle of 8.8 cm of the same paper. Stamp the sentiment and gold emboss. Cut this to a circle of 6.5 cm. Adhere the circles to the front design paper with the foam tape or foam dots. Adhere to the card front base. Stamp, color and die cut the Deer, 6 large leaf images with Archival ink then 3 using the gold embossing powder. Arrange in layers around the sentiment circles then adhere in place. Once the Deer have been placed to the lower right of the card with foam tape/dots, apply glossy accents/Crystal Lacquer to add interest to the card.
