Here is a Christmas Card I made last night. The stamps used in this slider card are from Close to My Heart's Snowflakes stamp set , Wonderland paper, and the Close to My Heart Cricut Cartridge Art Philosophy

The card overlay is 9 1/2 inches by 4 inches patterned paper scored at 4 1/4th, 8 9/16th and 9 1/2 inches. Fold the 4 1/4th inch section up and the 15/16th inch section down over the top. Cut 3 1/2 x 4 inch piece of cardstock. Line up with the 4 1/4th inch fold leaving the 1/16th inch at top open so it folds easily. This should bring the cardstock down to leave 3/4th inch of the patterned paper still showing. Glue the top section down over the cardstock. 

 Cut 2 1/4 x 4 inch ivory (or light colored) cardstock and center over the cardstock. In this example I stamped the large snowflake and cut it in half for the right side of the slider. I stamped Winter Wonderland in both first and second generation moving the second generation just slightly to the left to give a layered effect. The snowflake that is mounted on foam tape was cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge and then stamped with the coordinating stamp from the Snowflake Stamp Set.

The center of the slider card was made with 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 ivory cardstock. The other half of the large snowflake was glued to the left side of the slider. The same snowflake stamps in the center and the foam mounted snowflake are the same from the cover. The tab and frame were cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  

Hope you enjoyed my card!! I had a lot of fun making it. If you are interested in any Close To My Heart products please visit my friend Janis Purvis at
