Wednesday’s Card: Double Slider Birthday Card!

Double Slider Card

Hi All!

I guess since last week’s card was kinda simple, I felt like doing something a little more complicated this week. I was actually searching for a different kind of folded card on YouTube and came across this video. I thought it was really cool and decided to give it a try. Here’s the thing – I am about 3 years late to this party! This card has been around for some time. There are lots of different videos on it. Oh well, better late than never! My version has the sliding panel adhered to a regular card base, so you can still open it up like a regular card and write your message.

The plastic bag I used for the sliding mechanism was pretty high quality – thick, slippery plastic. And since it’s hidden, you don’t need to worry about the printing on it.

Anyhoo – enjoy and have a great week!

    Wow! I just love this slider card. I love all the wonderful additions to it… coloring the animals is just great. You really know your way around the ink applicators. I have purchased more of these applicators since I’ve found your blog. Thank you for sharing the video and the list of supplies. I will now go scrunching around my plastic bag supply… haha! Tks again!

    I just saw this vid on YT and LOVED it! I have seen this kind of card made…but you DO make it look easy! Am doing a mini book [from an old book from a salvage place] for our neighbors’ whose son just passed away 2 weeks ago..so this would be cool inside for journaling and a pic of him on the front. But going up + down instead of side to side…thanks for making great cards!!

    Be crafty…..Pam

    Oh, Darlene!!!!! this is just to fabulous!! Love it how you explained every step and with the video, I’m sure I too will be able to do one. Thank you for the time you put into it, from start to finish, including the time you spent practicing.

  22. wrote on May 17th, 2012 at 1:27 am


    I have been making slider cards for years, that use a very tricky slider mechanism. Well not any more, lol! Your card has changed the way I’ll be making them from now on… much easier! Thank you so much Darlene.

  23. wrote on May 17th, 2012 at 2:34 am


    Another fabulous idea for a card! Your videos are so easy to follow.
    Thanks for suggesting the Hero Arts Animal stamp set (as I can’t get a hold of the Furry FOlk) – glad I ordered it now that I’ve seen you use it on this card.

    I love it!! You are so talented. I feel like making a card, now 🙂

    Darlene, This card is amazing ! Each time when I learn something new with scrapbooking or card-making, I can be still surprised. And this is the case !!! I love the idea ! Must remember it for a next occasion.
    And what I really like about watching your videos, is that it’s always perfectly clear, and your gesture is so precise. You are awesome !
    Thanks for sharing Darlene ! Hugs from France !!!

    That’s the best “take” on a slider card that I have seen. I LOVE that it is part of the decorative panel, and you still have a regular card inside for writing a note. Kudos to you, Darlene.
    FYI – I discovered on-line video tutorials about a year ago, and have collected several “favorite” sites to check regularly. Your site is the most consistently dependable — I know each Wednesday there will be a great video posted for us. Your personal style happens to really appeal to me, but your professionalizm in managing your site is really admirable. THANK YOU!!!!

    Absolutely fantastic! You made this seem so easy and “do-able!” Thanks so much for your video and ideas! Another fabulous Wednesday tutorial! [Thought about your daughter this week – one of the girls at our local hair salon stopped traffic to save a neighbor’s dog who was running in the street! Everyone was safe in the end, no injuries, thankfully! Hope your puppy is doing well!]

    This is an awesome card! Thanks for sharing it and the tutorial. The pic with the measurements will be especially helpful!

    And on the unidentifiable animal– I think it looks like a cat– see the long tail, pointy ears, and the line coming down from the nose. He just doesn’t have whiskers. That’s how I see it, anyway.

    What a great tutorial Darlene. I’ve never made a slider card and now have the know how to do it! Thank you for taking the time to show us this awesome technique. Have a great weekend.

    Had to watch this again!! I have done this card like 3 times, but I must not be able to do the math or read my cutter right!! The top piece always comes out to big or rather 1/8th to big. Oh well..I still make this card and people just love it! Was going to do this for my Christmas cards, but….naw!! Thanks again for having this on your blog!!
