Painted poppies double slider gift card holder card

The Peaceful  Poppies suite is absolutely beautiful, the designer series papers are handpainted blooms accented by watercolour effects inspired by a field of poppies, they make beautiful card fronts, the suite has two stamp and die set bundles, one is the Painted poppies bundle and the other is the Peaceful moments bundle. I have made several cards with this bundle. Below is the instructions to create a double slider gift card holder card. I created this for a project team swap.

Card base (A) Rich Razzleberry cardstock  8 ½ x 5 3/4
Piece (B) Rich Razzleberry cardstock  5 5/8 x 5 3/8                  
Pieces (C1 & C2) Rich Razzleberry cardstock  2 pieces 5 5/8 x 4 (sliding pieces)
Piece (D) Whisper white cardstock 5 ½ x 3 7/8
DSP (E) 5 5/8 x 3 15/16
DSP (F) 5 ½ x 3 7/8
DSP (G) 5 5/8 x 1 ¼
Cellophane band (plastic envelope/bag that the dies come in, save them) 11 x 1 3/4
2 small pieces of ribbon about 2 to 2 ½ inches long for the loops
Scrap piece of whisper white for sentiment


1.      Piece (A) with the long side to the top score @ 4 1/8 flip 180 degrees and score again @ 4 1/8
2.      Piece (B) with the short side to the top score @ 4 7/8 & 4 ¾  flip 180 degrees and repeat score (cut from edge to the first score line at an angle as shown in the picture below)

4.      Glue DSP (E) to (B) once the two pieces are glued  take the classic label punch, centre it, place it halfway at the edge of the cardstock and punch to create a slot as shown in the picture below(DSP was not glued on my sample)

6.       Take the cellophane band and wrap around the above piece, use tear and tape to glue both ends, overlap one end over the other,  it should slide freely.

7.      Stamp image/sentiment on piece (D) before you glue it to piece (C1) take 1 piece of ribbon to form a loop use a glue dot to secure it on the right side that will act as a pull tab.
8.      Take the other piece of ribbon follow the same in step 7 and secure it on the left side of C2, glue      piece F to C2 now use the oval framelit to make a partial die cut at both ends, place the die about 1 ½” in  and this is what it will look like as shown in the picture below   


11.   Apply tear and tape on the cellophane band to the top left and tear and tape on the bottom right (underneath) as shown in the picture above, now take the piece from step 7 D+C1 and adhere it to the top left and the piece from step 8 F+C2 adhere that face up to the bottom left underneath, when you pull the two ribbon loops this should slide freely. This completes the mechanism for the slider.
12.   Now apply glue to the two folded ends and stick it to the base of the card.   
13.   Pretty up the card front with pieces F & G use the whisper white scrap piece for your sentiment and now you have a beautiful double slider gift card holder card.
