Hello everyone! I made a fun pull up slider card using the adorable and lovable Me And My Yeti along with Holly's Snowflakes stamp sets. In my card, a cute little girl on top of a Yeti pops up behind some snowy mountains, in order to wish you an unbelievably awesome holiday! :)




Steps (use photo below as a reference):
1. Cut white cardstock to 4-1/4" x 11" and create a top-fold card.
2. Stamp, color (I used Copics), and die cut the yeti and the little girl using their coordinating dies.
3. Die-cut two Bristol cardstock using the rectangle die from Peek A Frame Creative Cuts. With the first one, die-cut again using the Snow Capped Mountains Creative Cuts. It needs to be slightly taller than the Yeti when he's placed at the bottom of the panel. With the remaining card stock die-cut the snow caps.
4. Trim the center of the second panel to create the slider channel as shown in photos 1 and 3 (you can use a straight slider die to do this as well), making sure it's not taller than the middle mountain.
5. Distress the backgrounds as shown in photo 1, then splatter water with a paint brush or a sprayer. Splatter white diluted acrylic with a paint brush, and dry it with a heat gun. Apply Anti-static powder.
6. Stamp the sentiment with Versamark ink on the mountain panel, use silver embossing powder, and heat set it. 
7. Stamp the front and the mountain panel with Holly's Snowflakes, use white embossing powder and heat set it. Adhere the mountain caps.
8. Behind the front panel, add foam adhesive, except in the center. (See photo 3)
9. Cut a strip of acetate to fit in the center to around 6" in height.
10. Cut a small round foam tape a little smaller than the width of the channel, see photo 3. Place it on the bottom between the acetate in the back and Yeti in the front. Photo 3 is the back, and photo 4 is the front. This will allow the Yeti to move with the acetate. Test it to make sure it works.
11. Add a thin strip of foam adhesive on the outer edges behind the mountain panel as shown in photo 5. This will give room for the Yeti to move up and down. Then, mount it to the card front, hiding the Yeti.
13. Adhere the front panel to the card base. 
14. On the acetate that's sticking out on the top, you can add a strip of paper and write or stamp "pull". I chose to use a white die-cut arrow using the arrow die from Polaroid Fun Creative Cuts.

  24. I like how the coloring on the mountains blends so seamlessly with that of the background. If it weren't for the step-by-step process you outlined, I would have thought they were colored separately, but it makes so much more sense to color them together! I'm going to have to remember that technique.
