Double Slider Card

I tried this last year and failed miserably, not one to be beaten, I tried again, and this time I think I have discovered the secret, the quality of your grocery bag! It needs to be a sturdy type of plastic and not a see through flimsy one. Here is the you tube video to watch with Dawn Griffith, this I find is the easiest one to understand . I decorated mine with some tapestry peg stamps using a variety of dye ink pads, to achieve the colours I wanted. I do hope you will have a go, it is so satisfying when you hold the single card, pull on the ribbon and whoosh! out pop two hidden messages. I coloured the edges using a broad nibbed marker pen, by placing the card onto a piece of scrap paper,
place the nib at the top right corner and drag the pen straight down, half on the card , half on the paper, practice first on waste card, you will soon be able to do it. It saves having to mat your work, especially if you don't want extra card on your main project.
