Quadruple slider card tutorial feat. Neat and Tangled

Hi Everyone,

I have a bit of a treat for you today! ;o) I have recently posted a few quadruple slider cards on my Instagram account, and a few of you asked for a tutorial. And, since there is a competition for a tutorial over at the Neat & Tangled blog at the moment, I decided to kill two crafty birds with one stone (or one pair of scissors), and voila! 

Here's the card we're going to make today:

The quadruple slider card is really fun to make, and even more fun to play with! It will be hard for you to part with it, I can assure you ;o) It does take a bit of time to construct, especially when it's your first attempt, but once you get the hang of it, you'll be able to whip one up in no time, I promise!

WHAT YOU'LL NEED for the slider mechanism itself:
  • 1 sheet of 12'' by 12'' cardstock or 2 sheets of 8,5'' by 11'' cardstock (if you have other dimensions of cardstock - just see below what pieces you will need)
  • scissors
  • a pencil
  • strong double sided tape
  • double sided foam tape
  • a piece of soft plastic (I use ziplock freezer bags) - for the dimensions I use, you'll need two pieces roughly 2 3/4'' wide and circa 6'' long
  • patterned paper and/or stamps/stencils to embellish
  • 1 panel of 4 1/4" square (front panel)
  • 2 panels of 4" square ("inside" panels)
  • 2 panels of 3 3/4" square (slider mechanism)
  • 4 panels of 4" by 2 1/2" (slider flaps)
If you would like to ensure that you manage to cut all these pieces out of one sheet of 12" by 12" cardstock, or two sheets of 8,5" by 11" cardstock, you can find my suggested guidelines here (click to view PDFs):

12" by 12" sheet

8,5" by 11" sheet

You can find the full tutorial video below. The video is quite long, but I wanted to make sure that I cover not only the construction of the slider itself - I also added some tips and ideas, and there's even a blooper at the very end!

I hope you enjoy my very first tutorial video - please be kind and understanding, I know it's not perfect, but we all have to start somewhere, right?! :o)

Here are some more photos of the card:

And, before I go, please notice how I amended the stamps for my design needs, using the masking technique. I wanted to have the girl clown on my front panel, but I wanted her to hold the banner with the sentiment the way that the strong man would:

I am entering the card into the following challenges:

SSS Work It Wednesday Challenge - Favourite Stamping Technique (masking and one layer)
