Magic Slider Card - Get Well

I did it!  I finally tried making a magic slider card...and it was FUN!!  It wasn't nearly as difficult as I had imagined.  I don't know why I put off making one for so long!  I was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest made by Amy Wanford.  You can see it here!  Isn't it great...just perfect for someone who is coming back from surgery.  Problem is, I didn't have an upholstered chair stamp so I ended up finding some clip art and using my light box to trace it, then had to trace it again on acetate.  Let me tell you, it was a pain so if you want to try making this card, I'd recommend finding a chair stamp.  It will make your life SOOO much easier!  Here is how my card looks closed...

As you start pulling on the the tag...

And completely opened...

From now on I will put a little tag on top saying, "Pull" because the recipient of this card didn't realize it was magic until his Mom (my stamping friend, Kathy) told him to pull it!!

I do better at video directions than written ones so here is a link to the YouTube video that I used to help me make this card.  I sized down the measurements so the little pocket would fit on the front of a standard sized card.  l found another tutorial by Beate from Splitcoaststampers, here.  It's so good I thought you might like to take a look at this one, too!

Thanks for visiting!
