Wednesday’s Card: Double Slider Birthday 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!

Note: If you are reading this post in an email, you’ll need to click on the post title above (“Wednesday’s Card”) to go to my blog and play the video.

  1. Good Job! I Made one and sent it to my Classmate on His 16th Birthdat!
    Thanks for the tutorial!

  2. Superb website you have here but I was curious if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the
    same topics discussed here? I’d really like
    to be a part of group where I can get advice from other experienced
    individuals that share the same interest. If
    you have any recommendations, please let me know.

  3. Such an adorable card! Thank you so much for the fantastic video 🙂

  4. Awesome video thank you!

  6. Throughout this awesome scheme of things you get an A+ just for hard work. Exactly where you misplaced me personally was in all the particulars. You know

  7. Hello there, I found your blog via Google while searching for a related topic,
    your website came up, it looks great. I’ve bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.

  8. 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!!

  9. Hi Darlene, thanxs a lot for this tutorial, I tried it and wonderful !
    Thanxs, have a nice day, greetings from France

    (my post will come on 9th june on my blog, I put your blog link)

  10. Another clever creation. You are rocking those interactive cards at the moment!

  11. Thank you so much for the video! This card was a mystery to me when I saw it on HA Flickr group, now I think I will make one someday! 🙂

  12. Best tutorial I’ve seen as well as the best slider approach. I love that it mounts on a card. I’ll be back. Thanks VERY much!

  13. Lynda Nichols says:

    Wow…very cute…love your clear directions

  14. L-O-V-E I-T!! Thank you!

  15. Delightful! Just in time for graduation 🙂

  16. This is so cool. I’ll have to try this. Thanks for the great video.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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!]

    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!!!!

  21. 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 !!!

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

  23. Margaret says:

    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.

  24. 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.

  25. 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.

  26. Cathy E says:

    Totally beautiful and Fun! You rocked this one Darlene.

  27. Annie Kong says:

    This card is so NICE… I love it. I show it to my friend and she challenge me to do one as well… should have keep it to myself… lol.

    Thanks for sharing it out. Looking forward for your next card 🙂

  28. Darlene,
    Once again, you outdid yourself. This is a darling card. I would never have been brave enough to try it before I saw your tutorial. Thank you!

    Hope you had a good Mothers Day.

    I still wish Wednesday came every day!

  36. 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 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!!
