Happy Easter Penny Slider

Hi everyone,

It’s Frances here today with a tutorial for the Coloring Design Team. With Easter only a month away I thought it would be fun to create an Easter Card using the Krista Schneider Woodland Pals stamp set and coordinating dies. There is a cute little rabbit in this set, making it perfect for Easter.

As you can see, I decided to create a Penny Slider card using Joset Designs Sliders and Spinners die set. It is optional as to whether you use pennies or cardboard circles for the spinner mechanism, however the weight of the pennies does make the image spin and slide better. Instead of a coin, substitute a metal washer. (Cover the hole in the washer with cardstock.)

Here is a video of my card showing how the rabbit slides and spins along the curved track to reach the basket of Easter Eggs.

Here’s how I created my card:

Step 1 – 

  • Cut a piece of blue cardstock that measures 5 inches x 5 1/8 inches.
  • Cut a piece of green polka dot designer paper the same size as the blue cardstock. Place the cloud die from the CountryScapes Cloud & Grass die set in the centre of the designer paper and die cut.
  • Adhere the die cut cloud designer paper to the bottom of the blue card to create grass.
  • Using the middle-sized curvy slider from the Sliders and Spinners set, die cut approximately 3/4 inches up from the bottom of the card per the third photo above step 1.

Step 2 – 

  • Use the second largest fishtail banner from the Stitched Fishtail Banners die set to cut a banner from white cardstock.
  • Using the “happy” from the A Way with Words – Happy Birthday 2 die set, die cut the sentiment from black cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the back. Adhere the sentiment to the fishtail banner so the end of the word is close to the fishtail part of the die.
  • Using the “Easter” sentiment from the Happy Easter Peel Off Stickers adhere under the “happy” die cut as per photo above.
  • Adhere banner to the top left section of the card.

Step 3 –

  • Using the Props 7 die set, die cut the following:
  • (1) Basket from White Soft Finish Cardstock
  • (1) Basket Detail pieces from White Soft Finish Cardstock
  • (1) Grass piece from White Soft Finish Cardstock
  • (5) Easter Eggs
  • Color basket pieces, grass and eggs. Assemble the basket per Karen Burniston’s photo above.
  • Add the grass piece and 5 eggs to the basket.
  • Add the basket to the card on the left side of the slider track per photo below.

Step 4- 

  • Using the Woodland Pals stamp set and black ink, stamp the rabbit, tree, bird, and two rows of flowers on White Soft Finish Cardstock.
  • Using the Woodland Pals coordinating die set, die cut all the images.
  • Color as desired.
  • Adhere the tree, flowers and bird to card per photo above.

Step 5 – 
  • Optional – die cut two circles from designer paper to match the grass using the Circles Background die. 
  • Cover two pennies with the designer paper circles. (If you don’t mind seeing the penny through the slider you can just use the pennies without adding designer paper.)
  • Adhere a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape to the back of some white fun foam and use the 4 circles die included in the Sliders and Spinners die set to die cut the fun foam.
  • Adhere two of the fun foam circles onto one of the pennies so that the fun foam circles are on top of each other.
  • Place the penny to the back of the card so that that fun foam circle goes through the hole in the slider track.  (See photo above on left.)
  • Attach the second penny over the top of the first penny. (See photo above on right.)

Step 6 – 
  • Turn the card over so that the front of the card is face down on the table. Apply two layers of foam tape to the back of the card. (I forgot to take a photo of my card as this step, but you can get the idea of where to apply the foam tape using the photo above as a guide.) Be careful to keep the tape well away from where the pennies will be travelling up and down the slider track!

Step 7 – 
  • Cut a piece of blue cardstock that measures 5 inches x 5 1/8 inches.
  • Adhere the off cut designer paper that was left over when you die cut the cloud in step 1 and adhere to the bottom of the card.
  • Adhere the front of the card to this piece so that the designer paper on the piece above can be seen through the slit in the slider track.

Step 8 – 
  • Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 5 1/2 inches x 11 1/4 inches. Score at 5 5/8 inches to create a top-folding card base.
  • Adhere front of card to card base.
  • Adhere the bunny to the top penny.

Step 9 – Inside of the card:
  • Cut a piece of designer paper that measures 5 1/2 inches by approximately 2 1/2 inches. Place cloud die at top of designer paper and die cut. Adhere the cloud designer paper piece to bottom of card.
  • Using the Woodland Pals stamp set and black ink, stamp the rabbit, wide tree, bird, long row of flowers and small row of flowers on White Soft Finish Cardstock.
  • Using the Woodland Pals coordinately die set, die cut all images.
  • Color as desired.
  • Adhere all the images to card per photo above.

Step 10 – 

  • Stamp the “Thinking of You” sentiment from the General Sentiments stamp set next to the bird per photo above.
