Sliding Pop-Up CardYou will need...1 piece of coloured Card (for the top) 10 X15 cm 1 piece of card ( for the back, or base) light enough for your message to show, I have used white. Make this just slightly smaller than 10 X15 cm.1 piece of card 8 X 13.5 cm (for the slider)1 piece of card 9 X 7 cm for the card front (this is the piece on the front of the card that is stamped)Stamp image onto the 9 X 7 cm card, colour or decorate how ever you please. Put this to one side for the time being.Take your 10 X15 piece of coloured card and on the back make a small mark 2cm's in from each corner. On one short side mark the mid-point. (This will be the top of the card where the indent is)Next, using a trimmer or craft knife and ruler, cut a flap from the middle of the card, leaving a 2cm boarder all the way around. DO NOT cut along the short side where you marked the mid- point. Punch a half-circle in the centre at the top of the uncut edge, where you marked your mid-point.Place narrow double sided tape along the bottom, underside edge of the flap, then score a fold just above it (about 6mm is fine).Also score a fold line at the uncut edge of the flap. (This is 2cms down from the top edge).Then score another fold 5cm down from the fold you just made (or 7cm down from the top edge of this piece of card).Fold this up so that the flap makes a mountain on the top of the card.Place this piece of card over top of the slightly smaller ‘base card' and with a pencil mark the base of the frame. Now stamp or write a message so that it will show inside the coloured frame. Decorate as you like.Adhere the coloured frame onto the base card, making sure that you put your double sided tape as close to the outside edges as possible. DO NOT tape the top edge down- just the bottom edge and the two long sides.Take your 8 X 13.5 cm piece of card and decorate/stamp the top.Slide this inside the pocket you have just made, sliding it down until the bottom edge of the slider just touches the top of the bottom edge of the frame. DO NOT slide it all the way down to the bottom- it needs to stop at the top edge of the bottom piece of your frame (which means it stops 2 cams from the bottom of your pocket)Tape the bottom of the flap onto the bottom of the slider by removing the protective cover from the double sided tape already in place.When you pull the slider out the flap will now fold back into a 'mountain'.Place double sided tape onto the front, lower half of your 'mountain’ and attach your first piece of card, already decorate onto the front of the flap (mountain).Punch a hole into the top of the slider and thread ribbon through it.
