Interactive Slider Sidestep Card Instructions

Slider Card
Interactive Cards are fun to make and receive.They are fairly simple to make too!Here is Santa Claus  sliding across the card.
Interactive Slider Card
I added a slider mechanism to a side step card to make Santa slide across a Christmas themed landscape.
Interactive Slider Card
I handcut a snowman and a house for my Christmas theme.Since I love a bit of texture layered corrugated paper for the chimney and the door of the house.The snowman's hat is also cut from a scrap of corrugated paper.
Slider Card
Here is the template of the house I made.

The berries and holly are homemade embellishments from lightweight play-dough [Amos company] to which I added a bit of glitter!I also added glitter to all the punched snowflakes.

Interactive Slider Sidestep Card Instructions
I made the side step card following the instructions here
Cut a slot on any one of the side steps of a Side step Card as shown. You need to use a craft knife to cut a slot as long as you like and wide enough to hold your slider mechanism.
Slider Card
Decide on the position of you sliding image. 
Take a small piece of double sided foam tape [should be big enough to get a good adhesion but not too big as to hinder your sliding movement on the slot]  
Stick your double sided foam tape to the back of your sliding image and place it on the slot of your side step card.Stick a piece of card stock on the other side and your slider is ready!
More Pictures of this mechanism can be found here : Spinning Slider Card Tutorial
You can use a Coin instead of the card on the back of your slider. If you are using a coin Santa will slide back and forth on tilting your card due to the coin sliding. I somehow dont like using a "Penny" slider as it adds so much unnecessary weight to a card and your adhesive has to be really strong too if you are using a coin.
Here is a link to an awesome slider card tutorial by my blogger pal Lisa:Lisa's Side step Slider
Interactive Slider Card
Interactive cards are very popular with kids and they have so much fun playing with the sliding mechanism!
Do tell me how you like this simple idea.

  24. How nice and colourful... love all the detail. I love Amos clay too. Had been hoarding it for years and just discovered last night that most of the tubs have dried up. And I would not let Zeenya use it for all these years, hoarding it. Lol. Wish I had let her use it.
