Dandelion New Year Slider Money Card

Lookee here........a cute Year of the Dragon card. This card style was introduced to my me Carol K. at one of the stamp get togethers. The measurements have been tweaked a little to accommodate the dragon stamp. The image is from Dandelion. There are two size dragons in the cling set and a message image along with the block Asian Dragon word shown in the top right corner of the card. See more stamps from Dandelion here.

Here's a closer view of the card front. Yellow stickles added sparingly to the head and top of body. Copic colors used: R46, Y38, Y18, W1. Antique gold coins are attached using Mini Glue dots.

Pull the larger coin to the right to reveal a message

Pull the coin all the way to the right to reveal a even more surprise: MONEY!!!! of course, you can slip any amount in this spot.

To make this card you will need:

(1) 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" in Black, score @ 4-1/4" on the 8-1/2" side

(1) 5-1/4 x 4" mat in Red

(1) 3-3/4" x 4-3/4" slider in Black, score @1/2" on all sides

(1) 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" slider mat in Red

(1) 2-1/4" x 3-1/4" slider mat in White

(1) 5-1/8" x 3-1/2 slider insert in Red, score @2", 4-1/8" leaving 1/2" at the right side

(1) 3-1/4" x 1-7/8" mat for slider in White

(1) Pull tab: fold 3" x 3" in half (so it is 1-1/2"), use a 1" circle punch (see photo below)

(3) Antique Gold coins: 2 small and 1 large

2012 cut using SCAL3/Silhouette Cameo using Chow Fun font 3-1/2" x7/8"

Here's how to punch the circle pull tab:

Fold all 1/2" sides on the Black insert. Fold all the score lines on the red insert as shown
Flip the red insert over, add dimensionals to the back of the red insert - be sure dimensionals are away from the 1/2" black slider.

Attach the punched circle tab along the right side centering along the edge.

Add mini glue dots to the corners (see arrow below) to secure end of black slider. Remove back of dimensionals - position on card.

Hopefully there are enough details above to enable and inspire you to make one of your own.

Happy crafting................
