Valentine Slider

So here is my Valentine Slider Card: this style of card was previously posted on 12/10.

Glitter was added to the raised portion of the butterfly which is popped with a dimensional.

Pull up the tab to reveal the message stamped in Close to Cocoa ink:

Another closer view of the Butterfly:

How to make this card - Measurements:
(1) 5-3/8” x 8-1/2”, Score along the 8-1/2” side, ½”, 4-1/2”: you will have two 4" sections for the card.
Additional pieces needed:
(1) Whisper White Top Note
(1) Round Tab Punch in Close to Cocoa
(1) Top Note in Pretty In Pink: using the Textured Impression Dot Folder
(1) set of Real Red Beautiful Wings Embosslits (not all used)
(1) set of Whisper White Beautiful Wings Embosslits (not all Used)
(1) set of Pretty in Pink Beautiful Wings Embosslits (not all used)

Adhere the small butterfly using the 2 way glue pen. Position the tab on top of the top note. Use sticky tape to secure the tab.

Using a ruler, mark the center of the card and mark a horizontal line 1-1/8" from the bottom as shown by the pink arrows on the left photo. Prepare the 2 word window punches: fold them in half and add sticky tape to half of the word window as shown in the right photo.

Position the word window punched pieces as shown. Start to Cut down the center of the Pretty in Pink Top Note starting 1/4" from the top down to the bottom 1/4" away from the edge as shown in the right photo.

Take the card base (the Real Red CS): position it so you will be cutting down the center (which is 2") starting 1/2" from the top and stopping 1/2" from the bottom. Punch the top of the card, using the Round Tab Punch. Then position the Pretty in Pink Top Note directly on top of the Real Red card based. note: be sure to line up the cut slits to enable the inside card to slide. Push the word window "prongs" through the slit. Place dimensionals on top.
Then place the scallop circle on top of the word window. This is the same step as shown in the 12/10 post. Hope it is clear - yes? The rest is decorating with the butterflies.
