Instructions: This is basic instructions on how to cut a Z slider card that measures when finished 15 cm x 13.5 cm. Using a winter 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).
Cut all the contrasting matting and design papers 2mm smaller each side for each layer used. Once the card background and the slider card piece is completed with matting, the slider can be adhered to the top center of the card background. NOTE: When the card front is being put together, 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.
FOR THIS CARD: Cut two layers for the matting, the first layer in blue and the second layer in lilac. Emboss the lilac card stock. Ink all the edges with the forest moss distress ink. Adhere to the card base. Cut the design paper to 8.1 cm x 10. 7 cm, also ink the edges of this paper. Adhere this paper to the card front with 3d foam squares. Stamp, color and shape the rose and leaves. Stamp the sentiments from the ‘Moments With You’ and the ‘Encourage You’ stamp set. The sentiment ‘A Gift For You’ is stamped with the gold embossing powder. Fussy cut the circles. Die cut the spellbinders small oval once. Trim this so you use both the lace peeks to show when placed behind the sentiments. Ink the edges of the sentiment cuts with the distress inks. Stamp the Blushing rose swirl image, color, die cut, shape and trim to get the flower and swirl piece that will peek from under the paper layers and roses. Arrange at the foot of the card front as shown in the photo. Add the half pearls to the flower centers. To finish the card add stickles to the roses. Stamp, color, die cut and shape the rose circle image. Adhere this to the card front top with 3d foam squares. Last, add to the roses a hint of stickles to bling up your finished card.
