ATCM Bless You ~ Hidden Slider Card

Today I wanted to share one of the cards
I recently made for a card swap on
that I had to use an angel.  

The stamped image was colored with copic markers and 
then I added a yellow card stock background to give
her stability knowing I was going to put large 
pop dots under her.  The lavender and aqua dots  are
Nuvo Crystal drops and the background die
is part of a Heartfelt Creations die.

My La-La Land Angel stamp was rather large
so I decided a slider card would 
give me additional room for the sentiment.

Off to Youtube to refresh my memory and get
a few dimensions for keeping the 
sentiment hidden in a slider card.  
If you've ever searched Youtube, you know there are
hundreds of videos on each technique and 
some presenters just seem to like to hear themselves
talk and talk ... 
So I was tickled when one of the first ones that popped
up on the results was my friend Jenn Evers 
Jenn always gives clear written dimensions that allow
you to pause the video and make your notes. THUMBS UP!
It's easy to alter the location of the hidden part
once you lay out your larger piece.  Then you can determine
where you need to cut the slit and position the 
slider and pull tap card.

It takes a little while to get everything in the right
place, but the end result is worth the effort.

{NOTE:  This card design will be available for 
ordering in September on Not Just Scraps.}

Thank you for stopping by ~ Pam
