Double Slider Card Tutorial By GDT Karthikha

Hello Crafty Folks!


This is Karthikha back again with another tutorial, this time, on how to make a double slider card. Here is the finished card, before we start!
 

To start with, take a cardstock of size 11x5.5inches, and score at 3 1/2, 7 1/8 and 10 5/8 inches.




Take a plastic cover that is flexible and strong enough to slide inside the card. Cut a long strip out of it.



Wrap it around the longer side of the cardstock and attach the ends with tape. The plastic should neither be tight nor loose. Move it around over the cardstock to allow easy movement. 

Note: The thinner the layer of tape, the better the movement would be. I realized it later after completing the card.




Take 2 more pieces of cs measuring 5 1/2 x 3 1/4 inches each




Attach your favourite patterned paper. I've used The Perfect Affair paper pack from Papericious. This forms the inside of the slider.




Paste one of the cards on to the top of the plastic sheet.

Note: Glue/tape is to be applied only on the plastic and not on the base cardstock. And apply only on the top and not the entire card. See the tacky tape position in the pic below.




It should open like this, the top being attached.




For the inner one, invert the card and attach on the bottom of the plastic sheet.



After pasting both the cards, it should look like this, with the opposite sides attached and open in a Z fashion. If you pull one open end of the card, the other one slides up and this forms the slider.




Now, take the scored cardtock, Fold along the score lines of the cardstock and cover it either with glue or with 1/4th tacky/Scor Tape. The edge should be inserted and glued without hindering the slider movement.




On the outer part of the slider, attach patterned paper of your choice.




This is how the slider works when you pull one end of the inner card.



I've punched a hole and attached a satin ribbon to help open the slider.




To embellish, I've used a couple die from Tattered Lace and created a shaker frame. The frame die is from Gina Marie Scallop Stitched Rectangles. I've used a mix of red sequins for the shaker part.

To finish the card, I added a handmade flower and a sentiment 'Love'. The alphabets are die cut from Sizzix Bubble Alphas die set.


And here are the final pics :)

Waterfall Folio Album tutorial by GDT Karthikha

Hello Crafty Folks,


This is Karthikha here at RCS and today I'm sharing with you a tutorial on how to make a waterfall folio album. Sit back and enjoy the long post :)


Want a sneak peek?




Step 1: To start with, you will need 2 chipboard pieces, each measuring 8 ½ x 4 ½ inches. For the spine, take a chipboard piece measuring 8 ½ x ¾ inches. I’ve used 950gsm chipboard, but you can go with a lighter one as well




Step 2: Choose your favourite patterned paper for the outside of the album and trim it down to 10 ½ x 12 inches. I’ve used the floral papers from Papericious – Perfect Affair paper pack. Score this sheet at 1 inch on all the sides.



Step 3: Apply tacky tape on the edges and inside of the chipboards and place them as shown in the pic. Align the bigger pieces along with the score line on the patterned paper and stick them. Then place the center piece with some gap between the 2 bigger pieces and stick. 

Tip: This gap should be double the width of your chipboard and it allows the album to be folded.




Step 4: Once the chipboards are in place, cut along the corners and fold the patterned paper around the pieces along the scored lines, to form the hardcover of the album. Make sure to press the corners inside to get a neat finish. Apply tacky tape to the edges of the chipboard and the edges of the patterned paper. Fold along the creases and bind them together. Fold and fix the top and bottom first, before the side flaps.





Step 5: Cover the inner layer with a patterned paper measuring 8 ⅛ x 9 ⅝ inches. Score along the gaps in between the chipboard and fold them to form the album cover.




Step 6: For the waterfall folios, start with a base cardstock of size 7 ¾ x 4 inches. I’ve chosen iris cardstock 230gsm. Use a large corner round punch to give the base a rounded corner. Attach it to the right side of the album, eyeballing it in the middle.



Step 7: For the flaps, take 7 pieces of cardstock (iris used here) measuring 4 x 4 ½ inches. Score them at 4 inches on the wider side and fold the ½ inch flap. The flap will be glued, so punch rounded corners on the other side, that becomes the bottom of the flap in the waterfall folio.




Step 8: Apply tacky tape/glue on the ½ inch flap and align them along the top base of the album. Start from the top and proceed by adhering one flap below the other.




Once all the 7 flaps are attached, it should look like this.



Step 9: For matting the flaps, take 15 pieces of patterned paper, each measuring 3 ¾ x 3 ¾ inches.

Round the corners and attach them to each of the flaps – front and back. The last one will have only the front side.



Step 10: To cover up the small spaces in between flaps, take 7 pieces of patterned paper of size 3 ¾ x ⅜ inches and glue them. The waterfall folio is complete.


Step 11: For the left side, I decided to keep a pocket, but wanted it to be transparent. So I have diecut a frame using Gina Marie scallop stitched nested rectangles from the same paper pack, and attached acetate on the inside. Apply glue on the edges on 3 sides and attach to the left of the album, leaving the top side open for the pocket. I created 2 simple tags for the pockets from the same pp.



Step 12: Now for the closure mechanism, I used a cardstock measuring 3 ¾ x 1 inches, and matted with a patterned paper of size 3 ⅝ x ⅞ inches. Roll this flap around a bottle, I used my spritzer, to get the curved shape.



Step 13: Attach tacky tape to one end of the flap, and a magnet to the other end. The tacky tape part will be adhered to the backside of the album and magnet on the front.




Step 14: Measure the center of the album, and attach the closure flap carefully. Mark the position of the magnet in the flap on the front side and attach another magnet on the top of the album front. Take care to check the poles and they are the attractive sides.


I decorated the front of the album, in a way the magnet is covered. I’ve used a scallop circle diecut from Gina Marie scallop stitched nested circles dies, attached a doily distressed with Picked Raspberry, and used flowers for the central part. In order to cover the magnetic flap, I’ve used another flower that also serves to hold the flap and open easily. I’ve used corner charms for the opposite corners to complete the album.


And now here are the final pics! :)
