Today’s Super Saturday Tutorial begins with an unassuming and simple Masculine Get Well Card, with a Wood-Grain and Wonderfully Worn background and triple knotted safety pin embellishment. THAT is where the simplicity ends, LOL!
The surprise that lurks inside this card is sure to bring a smile to the recipient’s otherwise glum face… you know, that face you wear when you don’t feel well at all?
Open Sesame! We have a scallop sponged sky background, pop up forest and bear, and a pull-out greeting! And, best of all, we have a Double Pop Up Slider Card Super Saturday Tutorial!
This card is surprisingly easy to make too! Are you ready to get started? The stamping supplies for today’s Super Saturday Tutorial will be listed at the end of this post… the tutorial and supply list below will address the mechanics of the card!
Supplies Needed for the Double Pop Up Slider Card:
|Whisper White Card Stock||Pacific Point Card Stock|
|Pear Pizzazz Card Stock||Water Color Paper|
|Certainly Celery Card Stock||Window Sheet|
Tools & Accessories:
|1-1/4” Square Punch||Trimmer with Scoring Blade|
|1/2” Circle Punch||Eyelet|
|Crop-A-Dile Tool||Stampin’ Dimensionals|
|Paper Snips||1/8” Grosgrain Early Espresso|
|Multipurpose Adhesive||Bone Folder|
Card Stock Cutting and Scoring:
Pear Pizzazz (outer Shell
- 4-1/4” x 10-5/8”” scored at 5-1/4” & 5-1/2”
Certainly Celery (inside layer, slider, and slide mechanics)
- 4” x 4-7/8” to stamp and punch
- 2-3/4” x 4-3/4” Slider base
- 1” x 4” scored at 1/2”, 1-1/8”, and 1-3/4”
- 1” x 5-1/5” scored at 1/2”, 1-1/8”, and 1-3/4”
Whisper White (inside sponged sky)
- 3-3/4” x 4-7/8”
Crumb Cake (outer card stamped layer)
- 4” x 4-7/8”
Important Punching Tip:
- When punching rectangular windows with a square punch, insert punch from top edge of card stock until it butts into the card stock.
- While keeping the punch butted to the card stock edge, move the punch over to increase the size of the rectangle.
- Doing this will result in a rectangle with perfectly perpendicular… no fragments or edges to trim!
- Use Bone Folder to crease all scored lines.
- Stamp 4” x 4-7/8” Certainly Celery Card Stock with desired background image stamps.
- Use 1-1/4” punch to create an approximate 2-3/8” rectangular ‘window’ from the top edge of the stamped Card Stock using the methodology as described in tip above.
- Inserting punch from the bottom edge, punch a 1-1/4” square in the lower right corner of the same card stock piece.
- Turn card stock over to the non-stamped side. Leave a 1/16” gap along the side and glue the shorter 1” strip to the lower, left edge of the rectangle so that the 1/2” score line is lined up with the bottom edge of the rectangle window. Turn over and check to ensure the scored line is properly aligned and that the 1” strip is parallel to side edge.
- Glue the longer 1” strip to the lower 1-1/4” square window using the same procedure as described above.
- Here is what it should look like from the stamped side of the card stock layer.
- Turn card stock over to non-stamped side. Position the 2-3/4” x 4-3/4” slider piece so that it is just a smidgen below the top edge. (see next photo)
- Keeping the 1” pieces square, fold the top edge down onto the slider piece and glue in place.
- Use the 1-1/4” Square Punch to remove a small portion of the bottom/center portion of the slider… mine was approximately 1/4” high. Scroll down to photo in step 17 if you’re not sure (I forgot to take a photo of this step!)
- Place three Stampin’ Dimensionals along each long side of the slider, positioning that they are approximately 1/16” away from the slider. This will allow the slider mechanism to move without hanging up.
- Attach to inside, bottom of card butting the top edge along the first scored line.
- Now is a good time to check that the bottom edges are even. Because of the size, scores, and folds, one edge may protrude slightly. Close card and use paper trimmer to trim away any uneven or extended part along the bottom of the card.
- Stamp, color, sponge, and cut out images to be used on the pop ups.
- Glue images for upper rectangle to 2” x 3-1/3” Window Sheet, positioning so that the top edge does not interfere with the fold of the card.
- Pull out slider so that the pop ups rise. Place Multipurpose Adhesive on the upper rectangle FACE… the part between the bottom edge of the window and the first scored line.
- Attach decorated window sheet to adhesive, hold in place until set.
- Repeat same procedure for lower rectangle and desired image.
- Stamp and glue greeting approximately 1/4” above lower edge of pulled out slider piece.
- Punch a 1/2” circle from Pacific Point Card Stock, fold in half and glue to bottom/center of slider pull out.
- Use Crop-A-Dile tool to punch center of 1/2 circle and set silver eyelet.
- Thread 1/8” ribbon through eyelet, pulling ends to make them meet and tie an overhand knot to secure.
Now… if you were feeling crummy and received this card in the mail, wouldn’t this guy make you smile?
