Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for October 2016. We thank you for stopping by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month our projects feature cards made using “wicked” folds. What is a “wicked” fold? It is anything other than the standard A2 card fold. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

Here’s a wickedly fun pop-up slider card for you to try! This fun fold can be used for so many absolutely fantastic designs. I wanted to make this with specialty paper but you can use any kind of paper you wish.

Instructions

This card was a lot of fun to make so I hope you will give it a go! Here are some tips for making it your own.

  1. Card base: 6 1/2″ x 10″. I cut this in half because the specialty paper was one sided. You can use double sided paper in one piece and score at 5″. The opening in the back for the slider card will be the two open ends and the fold will be in the front.
  2. Here are the dimensions for the cuts and folds: template
  3. Once you have done the cuts and scores for the card base, the slider card should be put in place, then put adhesive on the 1/2″ portion and attach to the slider. Now you can add adhesive to the left and right side of the card base (as well as the front if you cut the card base in two).
  4. Add stamps, embellishments and have fun with the wickedly fun pop-up slider card!
  5. Tip: If you use any of the foil sheets like I did here, put wax paper between the paper and the die before cranking it through the Big Shot (or your die cutting machine). Always cut the foil sheet to the size you need so it doesn’t pick up any of the markings from your cutting plates.
