Safari Slimline Slider Card ☆ CottageCutz

Hi guys!  Today's card is a Safari-themed Pull Tab Slimline Slider card (that's a mouthfull! LOL!)  This is a fun card for a boy's birthday.  My great nephew loves interactive cards (who doesn't?!)   For this one I used magnets to help the cruiser slide across, but it can easily be adapted with a slider channel.


small magnets
foam tape or strips
ink blending ink pads


• Cut base (green) at 7-3/4" x 9" 
-- score the shorter edge at 3-7/8"
Cut (black) at 8-1/2" x 3-1/2" 
• Cut (black) at 3/4" x 2-1/8" (cut 2 of these)
• Die cut (white) largest Scallop Stitched Rectangle Slimline
• Die cut Safari elements (die cut the cruiser 2x)


• With the black layer, use the extended die technique to elongate the cut using the 2nd smallest Nested Rectangles Slimline set as pictured below.

• With the white scalloped layer, die cut the lower portion as pictured using the straightest die from the Hills Slimline set.

• Add vintage photo D.O. ink (or color of your choice) to the lower scalloped part.

• Ink blend the top scalloped part with D.O. wild honey, carved pumpkin, crackling campfire, and candied apple (or colors of your choice).

• Color the Safari die cuts (if cut from white cardstock) 

• Add glue to the TOP only of black layer, leaving at least a 1/8" border around top and sides and add TOP scalloped layer.

• Glue the tree to the bottom of the top scalloped layer as shown below.

• Add glue to bottom of black layer, leaving 1/8" border and add BOTTOM scalloped layer, overlapping the top just a tiny bit.

• Affix the rest of your Safari die cuts.

•  On the back of the safari cruiser, add 2 magnets (I used glue and Scor Tape):  one towards the front and one towards the back.  (I used 3 because I messed up on the placement of my slider wrapper the first time, so I went back and added a 3rd magnet and moved my wrapper.)  

• Add glue and/or Scor Tape to magnets and add the 2nd cruiser on top.  Cover up backside as much as you can w/out adding builk.

• Add glue to the center of both slider wrappers as shown below.

• Add one near the edge of opening on the back and glue the next one 1/2" - 3/4" away from the first (see photo below).  

**Important:  the placement of the 2nd Wrapper prevents the Cruiser from running over our baby gorilla when the magnet hits the wrapper!! 

• On the front, place cruiser to the far right of card and holding it there, turn card over and place your magnets where they automatically want to attract them.  

•  Add foam strips/tape to the back, around edges and close to the slider opening without hindering it from moving.  

• Add glue to magnets and carefully slide the slider tab thru the wrappers and over the magnets.  You will have 1/4" of the tab sticking out -- this is what you'll need to grab and pull the slider.  

• Pull slider out and write your sentiment, or emboss a stamped sentiment in white!  I used a white and a gold sparkly pen.

• Remove tape backings and attach to center of card front!
