These awesome magic slider cards will "wow" your friends and family. When closed, you see a black and white graphic. When the tab is pulled, the slider moves to reveal the colored graphic beneath. You'll need printable transparencies to make these cards. You'll also want watch Lori's "Magic Slider Card" assembly video below to learn how to assemble these cute cards! The finished card measures 3.5x4.75 when complete. Note: I recommend printing the transparency film piece and hand cutting for simplicity. PDF for printable pieces included. I used 100# White Cardstock and this Canon Printer (handles heavy cardstock beautifully).
This is a great idea, I absolutley love it. On the plus side, They are reasonably easy to make and work great. On the negative side, they are small when used as is. I use Scan N Cut and Canvas Workspace and the file has to have a little manipulation to make it work well. The draw and fold lines have to be changed from cut files to draw files. All the pieces show up one color and grouped. Small problems. It was easy to enlarge so I can get a 6" card out of a 12" stock. I use photoshop and am creating my own designs which is slow at present but will work well when I get the process down better. I would recommend this to anyone looking to make some unique cards for the holidays.
