Interactive Slider Card with Cricut®

Hey, everyone! Roree here with another Make It! Monday project. Today I am sharing an interactive slider card I created using Cricut®.

First, I pulled up the fish and fish bowl images from the Create a Critter cartridge in Cricut Design Space®. I sized the images proportionally so that my finished card size was 4 3/4 x 5 1/2″.

To create the slide cut on one of the water images, I made a copy of the fish bowl image and ungrouped the images. I hid the contours of everything on the fish bowl image except for the slit at the neck of the bowl. I readjusted the size of the slit to 1/4 x 4″, placed it over the extra water image, and attached the images together before cutting.

After cutting all of the pieces from colored cardstock with my Cricut Explore® machine, I pulled both water die cuts aside and cut a 7/8 x 4 3/4″ strip of matching blue cardstock for the slider. I rounded two of the ends with a corner rounder punch.

I flipped the water die cut with slit over and covered the hole with the cardstock slider strip. I placed a foam adhesive strip on both sides of the slider, leaving a little bit of room between the strip and adhesive so the slider could move freely.

I flipped the die cut back over and placed a thin strip of foam adhesive at the end of the slider and attached the fish die cut.

I adhered this die cut to the solid water die cut with foam adhesive before attaching it to my card.

I layered and adhered the die cuts to my card base popping up the sand and plant with foam adhesive so the fish would slide behind them. I used rub-ons and chipboard letters to create a sentiment on the card and “pull” on the end of the slider. I finished the card with a ribbon bow at the top of the card.

If you have a Cricut® machine, a Cricut Design Space® account, and the Create a Critter cartridge, you can access my pre-designed cut files to create your own interactive slider card HERE.

I hope you enjoyed today’s Make It! Monday project. Thanks so much for stopping by!

      We do not have a video tutorial for this card. You can however search for “Slider Card Tutorial” on YouTube and there are lots of options to help you get started.
