Just Plane Fun

The Vintage Tools stamp set is so handy! For this card, I'm revisiting the panel slider card. I created that card last year as a Paper Pumpkin alternative, so it's based on the cardbase that came with the kit. This time, my card is in landscape orientation to allow even more movement.



The card even makes its own sound effects because the paper makes a scraping noise!


Measurements

-Crumb Cake cardstock

  • 11” (W) x 4-1/4” (H), scored at 5-1/2" along the long side. You'll then be creating a rectangular panel on the front of the card, with the left side of the rectangle scored and the other edges cut. You'll also create 2 slits on the back of the card as a track for the slider to move.

    • At 3/4" from right front edge of card, cut from 2-1/8" to 3-1/2"

    • At 2-1/8" from top front edge of card, cut from 3/4" to to 4-1/4"

    • At 3/4" from bottom front edge of card, cut from 3/4" to 4-1/4"

    • At 1-1/2" from center crease, on the front of the card, score from 2-1/8" to 3-1/2"

    • At 2-1/8" from top back edge of card, cut from 3/4" to to 3-3/4"

    • At 3/4" from bottom back edge of card, cut from 3/4" to 3-3/4"

  • 1/2" (W) x 3-1/2" (H) for slider tab. After attaching this to the back of the slider panel, fold it around the track and make sure it's not too tight before gluing it together

  • TWO 5-1/2" (W) x 3/4" (H), embossed

  • 5-1/2" (W) x 1-1/4" (H), embossed. This goes under the slider panel on the inside of the card. Cut strips to show the stamped message underneath and to create curls

  • scraps to fit images of other tools

-He's the Man Designer Series Paper

  • 4” (W) x 1-7/8” (H)

The dimensions are different, but the basic construction is the same as the video below:



Here's what the card looks like before it's fully decorated, so that you can see where the cuts are.



I extended the slider tab on this version, wrapped it around the back of the card, and attached the ends so that it's more secure, since it has to move across some obstacles. I also added a strip of clear tape on the underside of the panel, where the slider tab is attached, so that the join feels smoother and doesn't create a catch point as it moves across the "wood" curls underneath.



The "wood" was created by adding Early Espresso ink to the Timber embossing folder before running Crumb Cake cardstock through it. I cut out a little bare area where the sentiment is stamped and curled up some strips around it so that it looks like the wood plane has done its job! If you look closely, you'll notice that it's actually 2 separate pieces of "wood" on the inside right of the card. There is a gap between them where the track for the slider is--don't cover that up!



I used the He's the Man Designer Series Paper as a pegboard for the front. It's a Sahara Sand color, though, so to make it match better, I blended Crumb Cake ink onto the paper. You can see the difference here:



I stamped the tool images onto scraps of Crumb Cake cardstock and colored them in with Soft Suede and Smoky Slate Blends markers before fussy-cutting them out. These are very quick to color because the images themselves show you where they should be shaded. Rustic Metallic Dots create the illusion that the tools are hung up and ready to use!
