Did you see my blog yesterday when I showed you the Swivel Slider Tab Master die set? If not, you can check it out HERE.
There is another little treasure for sliding cards in this die set... Those tiny little ovals.. they let you do fun slider cards where you pull the tab, and something moves in the OPPOSITE direction! Like this hidden gift card!

Let's take a look at how to do it...

Step 1: Stamp and color your Ruby Celebration image.

Step 2:  Use the largest die from Garden Escape to die cut a fancy edge. Make sure this fancy panel is wide enough to conceal the gift card with a little extra room.

Step 3: If you want a decorative front panel to your card, go ahead a create it. I made my card about 1/4" thinner than a standard card so there is room for the pull tab to stick out, and it can all still fit in an envelope. 

Step 4: Use a pencil to trace the top and bottom edge of where the gift card will sit. (be sure to double check with your stamped panel to make sure everything fits and the card will be hidden. Then draw a parallel line about 2/3" from the top edge of where the gift card will be, and another from the bottom edge of where the gift card will be. 
NOTE: in the above photo, the dashed line indicated with the dark bracket is the size of the gift card. The two smaller arrows indicate where my inner lines are. (Pencil is hard to photograph on this paper)

Step 5: Die cut 2 those little ovals twice. Use the pencil lines as a guide. The dies should be placed between the gift card edge line and the inner line on both the top and bottom edges of where the card will be.  Make sure they are straight and parallel, 

Step 6: Thread SMOOTH satin ribbon through the slots and attach the ends to form two loops (one ribbon loop for the top of the gift card, one for the bottom).  Make sure whatever adhesive you use to glue the ends together is very strong. I like to use the Tim Holtz tiny attacher to staple my ribbons. 
Test to make sure both ribbon loops slide smoothly. You will notice that where attached the ribbon ends together will get caught on the slots.  That is fine. It will keep your slider from moving too far. 

Step 7: Slide both ribbons so the ends of the ribbons are as far to  the CENTER of the panel as possible. Flip your panel over and add a small amount of double sided tape to the ribbon on the OUTSIDE edge. 
NOTE: choose a double sided tape that is strong enough to stick the card to the ribbon, but allows the recipient to easily pull the card out without having to tear apart the card.

Step 8: Adhere the gift card to the tape you just put on the ribbons. The card should be at or very near the outside edge of the card

Step 9: Flip the card over. Glue a 1/2" wide strip of cardstock to both ribbons where the ends of the ribbons are glued together. (they should still be pushed towards the center of the card, and the gift card on the front should be at the outside edge of the card). Die cut the pull tab, and cut off the arms so you just have a long strip of cardstock. Trim to desired length. Glue that to the cardstock strip. 
TEST. When you pull the tab, both ribbons should move at the same time, and the card on the front should move in the opposite direction. 

Step 10: Die cut the sleeve, fold and glue together. Adhere the sleeve to the back of the panel. Make sure your pull tab is going through it. This will keep your tab straight.

Step 11: Cover the back of the panel with foam tape and adhere to your card base. (Be careful not to place any tape in areas that would impede movement.)

Step 12: Add some foam adhesive to the top and bottom edge of your stamped panel. Make sure there is plenty of room for the card to move when it is placed on the card front. Adhere in place.

Step 13: Finish decorating your card as desired!

It sounds kind of complex, but it's actually pretty simple! And you completely WOW your friends!

This Ruby is perfect for spring and summer! Check out her sweet dress and basket of flowers!

To create the background, I sponged some ink through the new Waffle Cone stencil. I kept the ink concentrated in the area Ruby would be standing, then faded out towards the edges. 

I popped both the white panel and Ruby up with foam tape, so there's lots of fun dimension!

And that does it for Ruby (for now anyway). I'll be back tomorrow with MORE new stuff!
