The Slider Snowman
Have you ever created a slider card? These are so much fun and you can use the technique to create cute cards for all occasions.
I wanted to create a slider card but didn’t know where to begin. So, like a lot of crafters, I turned to the internet to see what I could find. Thanks to France Martin, I was able to recreate the “Slider Snowman”. Perfect for a Winter Card.
There are a few key components to creating a slider card:
- A punch to create the slide area.
- A penny.
- Foam squares to lift up the cardstock so that the slide will work properly.

Prepare card base and layer a piece of Holiday Fancy Foil DSP (Snowflakes) over card base.

Using Word Window Punch, punch a slot in the center of embossed piece. You may have to join 2 punches together to get a long enough slider.
Place a penny behind slot, place stack 2 dimensionals on top of penny, place a second penny on top and outside the slot. Attach snowman to top penny using a dimensional.
Attach all to card base. To ensure that the snowman will slide and turn, use a 2 layers of foam tape so that the top piece is high enough from the base.
