By the Sea Slider Card

I love this Pop Up Slider card!  It is fun, fun to make!  I found the tutorial for this card on Pinterest! Check out Anne Rostad's beautiful Slider cards here and it's a tutorial!
I followed Anne's directions except I didn't use a frame that was already cut out.  I made my own frame but cutting a 4" x 6" piece of card stock or decorative paper and then cutting in from 3 sides about 3/4 inch. Instead of cutting the top at 3/4 inch - I scored it - not all the way across - just inside the frame area- See below.  It creates a flap!  Along the bottom of the flap- I made a score line at  1/2 inch in.  You will fold this flap in half from that score line not the end of the flap- You can see how it works below.
I used Graphic 45's By the Sea collection to decorate the card.  I did some fussy cutting of the Sea Shells and used some foam tape to add some dimension.  The video below shows how the card works!

My Crib Card Tutorial

I haven't done a video in quite a while so I felt a little rusty doing this one!  I had a little camera trouble but I am hoping you can get the idea of how I made my Crib cards!  I would recommend watching the video all the way thru first!! Here are the written dimensions of the elements of this fun card:

Base:  1- Cardstock 9  1/2 inch  x 4 1/2 inch   Score each end at 2 1/4 inches

Turn vertically and score at 1 1/4 inch just to the first score line. 

Railings:    2 - 5 3/4 inch  x 1/4 inch    Score at 3/8 inch

Mattress:   2- 7 inch x 1 inch     Score both ends at 1 inch

Inserts:  2-  2 1/2 inch x 3/8 inch   

Please let me know if you should have any questions!  Hope your weekend has been fun!
