Double-slider card (Flowers)

Hi everyone,

after doing some shopping with my wife on Saturday afternoon, I remembered that there was a Card-making Demonstration at my local Range store between 10am - 4pm.

It was about 3:20pm by the time we got there. I noticed that Gill O'Donnell (docrafts demonstrator) had made some double-slider cards which fascinated me. I asked her if she could show me how to make one but she didn't have time to complete a full card. Gill kindly had enough time though to tell me the measurements and show me how the mechanics of the card worked.

This is the first time I have made this type of card. I rushed it a bit, as I was trying to get it done while I could still remember how it was made. It's not perfect but I am still pleased with the results and it worked a treat.

I altered the original measurements I had been given, so that I could use a 4" x 4" card. Once you understand how the mechanics of the card work, it is quite easy to alter the measuements to suit your own needs. Using a card blank for the back of the card instead of just a piece of card means that the card could stand up by itself.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my Blog.
Happy Crafting
