Ribbon slider card

I'm featured design team member this week at Speedy TV tutorial .
Ribbon Slider
Here is a ribbon slider card which takes a cut out image and flies it across your card.  This mechanical card has been around for years and is still a crowd pleaser.  I hope you enjoy this card as much as I do.
Mark’s Finest Papers and stamps, A Heinrich Co. – Wild Horses (2012), Wings (2013)

1/8” ribbon
Foam dots
Mini glue dots
Personal cutting tool
3” scallop paper punch
Ranger Adirondack stonewashed
StazOn jet black


1.  Score and fold 10” x 7” cardstock in half to create base card.  On piece of cardstock 6 ¾ “ x 4 ¾ “ stamp scene which will be layered on base card later.

2.  On piece of white cardstock stamp horse.  Do a little watercolor with gray ink on horse and then cut out.  Set aside while you stamp wings with StazOn jet black ink on vellum.  Allow a minute to dry then flip over and sponge on a little of the stonewash ink.  Cut out vellum wings and with a mini glue dot on the bottom of each wing tape it to the horse.  Set aside till ready to assemble.

3.  With 3” scallop paper punch, punch out two scallop circles.  Tape these two scallops together to be used as cloud template.  Place cloud template on 6 ¾ “ x 4 ¾ “ cardstock and sponge stonewash ink all over card.  Stamp mountain scene in the bottom corner with gray ink.

4.  On stamped 6 ¾ “ x 4 ¾ “ card cut 2 parallel lines ¼ “ apart with personal trimmer. Make the length of cut about a ½ “ from each side.  This will create rails for your image to slide across your card.

5.  Cut one strip of cardstock to wrap and tape around a piece ribbon that will slide back & forth on your card.  The ribbon should be twice the size of your card.

6.  Cut two more strips of cardstock and tape each one on the ends of parallel lines with ribbon threaded through but do not tape ribbon to end stoppers.  These will be end stoppers on the back of stamped layer.  The ribbon is just placed inside the end stoppers so the ribbon can be pulled across card to make flying horse fly.

7.  With foam dot mount flying horse to front of stamped layer on the sliding stopper.

8.  Stamp saying with black ink on bottom left side of stamped card.

9.  Put foam dots on the back of stamped card and mount to base card.

10.  Pull ribbon and flying horse soar across your card!

Here is the completed card.
