I am so happy to show you another card featuring the Moving Forward Stamp Set.  I had a request to share how I made the slider card.  I was wanting to make a video... but with my cold this week, I am not in the recording mode.  SOOOOO, I snapped a few pictures and will walk you through the process.... sniff, sniff....

Here is the prep & ingredients:

Stamp Sets:
Moving Forward
Pennant Parade

Card Stock:
Pool Party- 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score @ 4 1/4"
     2" x 5 1/2" - Slider Track
     3/4" x 5"- Pull Strip
     2 @ 1 1/2" x 1/8"-Pull Guides
Whisper White-
     3 Clouds- 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" ran through the Big Shot using Polka Dot Embossing Folder and punched clouds using Cupcake Punch
    1" circle punch- Pull Strip Tab
    Pennant Punch-  2" x 2"
    Blimp- 3" x 3"
Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper 4 patterns- 1 1/2" x 5 1/2"

Cherry Cobbler- Blimp
Whisper White- clouds using sponge dauber

Tempting Turquoise
Daffodil Delight
Old Olive

White Baker's Twine
Sponge Daubers

2" x 5 1/2" - Place on 3/4" , close cutting flap.

Cut starting at the 1" to the 4 1/2".
Move paper 1/8" over and cut again from
the 1" to the 4 1/2"

Snip both ends, exposing the track opening.

Trim 1/2" off long side, centering the track opening.
( the end result is to have a piece 1 1/2" x 5 1/2",
I cut it larger to manipulate on my trimmer easier)

Punch out a notch using your 1" Circle Punch

Punch 1" Circle out of Whisper White, fold it in 1/2
Glue it on to the end of the 3/4" x 5" Pool Party pull strip.

Add Stampin' Dimensional strips cut from the edges of
the Stampin' Dimensionals. They should border 3 sides
of the Pull Strip.

Turn over and mark where the front 1/3 of the Blimp
will be to add the Pull Guides.

Using Pull Strip only, fold your Pull Guides in 1/2.

Glue on Pull Strip as shown. Trim edges to same
width as Pull Strip.

Put the Pull Guides through the Track.

Lightly add glue to Pull Guides.

Adhere Blimp to Guides and pull the slide for easy Glide.

Ink Pennant Parade and "Hello"  using Markers and
punch out using Pennant Builder Punch. 

Punch a  hole in the tail of the Blimp and the Pennant.

Arrange under the Blimp to hide when not extended.
Adhere Pennant down.

Tie the Twine on the punched holes in the Pennant
and Blimp Tail.

Card Base is completed by folding in 1/2, adding
some clouds with the sponge dauber. Making rolling
hills with Summer Smooches DSP and placing on
2 punched clouds.

Remove adhesive backing from Stampin' Dimensionals

Stick to card base. Add additional Cloud.

Pull extender to expose greeting.

If you made it this far.... pat yourself on the back! If you are totally confused, I am sorry, I am on meds. If you would like to get one of my slider cards in the mail, leave me a comment and I will have a drawing  & contact you by email to get your address.

Congrats Diane O on winner the slider card!

 Have a La Dee Dah Day!
