Snarktoberfest 2017 Blog Hop - Slider Card feat Magnolia Stamps and Gummiapan

Magic Slider Card Snarktober 2017 - Overview

Hello everyone! Snarktoberfest 2017 is kicking off, so brace yourselves for a month long of funny and snarky inspiration! Whohooo! 


Snarktoberfest 2017 logo


I am super happy to be part of a blog hop in celebration of the Snarktoberfest (thanks Josefine, I hope you realize that this means I will keep stalking you :P), and today I will be sharing a slider card I made for the occasion. I used stamps by Gummiapan and Magnolia stamps, kindly sent to me by the Swedish House Craft store, and created a fun slider card! For the front panel I used a die by Studio Katia to cut some Neenah Desert Storm cardstock to a standard A2 size, and then created an opening using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling die. 
I then designed and cut the sliding panel, as I don't have a die that creates a magic slider card (one more item in my already pretty long wish list :D ). For the measurements you can refer to the image included below. Just please note that the image is not to scale: it is meant to be a visual guide for you, not something to print and trace. I do hope it will be useful to someone out there, though.

Magic Slider Cutting Template


After having created the slider panel I stamped the sentiment using Memento Dew Drops is Rich Cocoa. 
For the inside of the slider I cut some Neenah Solar White cardstock using the same Studio Katia die that I used for the slider front. I did some masked stamping for the cakes with Memento ink in Rich Cocoa. I stamped the second part of the sentiment too and colored my images with Spectrum Noir markers. 
I then backed the slider front panel with foam tape, making sure I would leave enough room for the slider to move freely. 
I also created a video showing the whole card making process, you can watch it below! And don't forget to let me know what you think about it!







And now onto the fun part! Everyone who leaves a comment by October 5th 9pm PT/ 12am ET on all of the blog in the hop has a chance to win one of the prices from our sponsors:
