Magic Slider Card

This is a "Magic Slider Card" that I made last year. I originally found a written tutorial and directions on making this card and used that to create a  Make the Cut (MTC) cutting file for it. I then used it with my crafting group for us to make cards.  I gave this one to my Mom for Mother's day last year so I am pretty sure I made the cutting file back in May of 2012.
I had meant to put it up on my blog back then but I guess I never got around to it.  I remembered it when someone was looking for a "slider card" last week on the Make the Cut Forum.  This was not the exact type of card they were looking for, they were looking for a slider card that had multiple layers that slide out of the top. However, I still wanted to go ahead and share this file here since I hadn't done so previously.  Figured it had been sitting on my computer long enough!
For complete directions on assembling this card, you can see Beate John's written tutorial that I used to create the card  which can be found here at the splitcoaststamper's website: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/magic_card/ 

There is also a Youtube video for those who are visual learners!  You can find it through the above link to her written tutorial.

The cutting file is for personal use only. It should NOT be sold. Cards made with it may be given away or sold.

Download the MTC "Magic Slider Card" file.  Be sure to read the notes section in the file. The file contains two base cards.  One has the rectangular window as shown in this card and one has an oval window.  Placement of your image on your pull out cards are extremely important as my crafting group will attest to!  We used recycled acetate for the "window".

Given the complexity of this file, I have not converted it to an SVG file at this time.  If you are interested in an SVG file for it, leave me a comment and if I get enough requests to convert it I may try when I find time.  Thanks for your understanding.  As always, thanks for stopping by!  I would love to see what you make if you use this file!
