Trick or Treat Hidden Slider Card

treatersliderclosedI love these little Trick or Treaters from Eat Cake Graphics.  I thought this set would be perfect for a hidden slider card.

treatslideropenWith hidden slider cards, when you pull the slider, and image pops out from behind another image.  In this case, the Trick or Treaters get their candy!

I made the card using the Trick or Treating Cling Stamp set.  The set has all the image stamps you need for this project; including the Trick or Treaters, the house, and the candy bowl.  The sentiment is from the Happy Halloweenie stamp set.

It may sound confusing at first (at least it did to me!), but once I had all the pieces in front of me – it made much more sense.

componentsThis slider card was made the same way as the other hidden slider post.

But because of the size of the images I wanted to card to be bigger (to fit in a 6″ square envelope).  So I had to increase the size of the pocket and the slider.

The pocket is made from 2 pieces of Majestic Purple Med paper, one 5 3/4″ by 8 1/2″ – scored 1 3/8″ from each end.  This forms the front and the sides of the pocket for the slider.  The back of the slider pocket is made from a piece of 5 3/4″ square purple.   To create the pocket, I just folded up the top and bottom at the scores and then adhered the purple back over the folded pieces.

The black base is 5 5/8″ square.  Of course I had to make my orange slider larger also – it is 5 5/8″ square.  The porch is my popped up image with the candy bowl hiding behind.

To decorate my card, I colored all the images with Copic markers.  I created the stars on my black background with a stardust gelly pen.

Hidden slider cards are so fun to make – they always make me feel clever!
