Cricut Artiste Slider Christmas Card

Happy Wednesday!  I have been wanting to make a slider card ever since I saw the gorgeous example they had at Convention.  Here is a video for you to see the one they made!



Now, I wanted to make mine with a Christmas theme, so I changed it up a bit.  I cut the card at 3 inches by tricking my E2 into thinking it was working with a 12 x 24 inch mat and rotating the image 90 degrees.  ;)   I used Close to My Heart White Daisy, Sweet Leaf, and Cranberry Cardstock.  Silver and gold together at Christmas with Shimmer Trim and brads. 



I used a sentiment from the October 2012 SOTM for this one.  The set is no longer available to order, but you can win it at my Christmas Workshop on December 1st!  The poinsettias are cut out with the Artiste Cartridge as well.  I used a stylus to create the veins and then folded and inked them with Cranberry Dye Ink.


 Here is the card as you pull out the slider...


Here it is in the inside...I just used the remnant from the White Daisy "holder" on the inside as a base for my sentiment.


I see many more possibilities for this type of card and cannot wait to experiment some more!  Next time, I am going to random stamp some Christmassy images in White Daisy and add some glitz.  :)

Thanks for taking a peek!
