Magical Fairy with Hidden Slider
by Jennifer Svare


Hello!  I hope everyone is enjoying the slider week so far!  I have really enjoyed seeing all of the beautiful and fun designs.  I've always loved sliders, but they have seemed intimidating to me, so I never tried one until now.  I'm so glad I did!  They are not at all as difficult as I had imagined.  Super easy and fun.  I used the Straight Slider Grooves craft dies to create the slider track.

The slider track on this card is hidden behind the front frame.  The ribbon on the right pulls the message tab out, moves the fairy, and also reveals colorful dots of "Show" along the way!


When closed, there are no colors, but as the fairy slides along, colorful dots of "snow" are revealed along the way.



The Wintertime Fairies set is so cute and has so many possibilities.  I can't wait to incorporate more of these adorable designs perfect for sider cards!


Video for the slider card below shows how to incorporate the basic idea of this slider card mechanism into your dies and design ideas:

What an adorable scene, Jennifer ... the detailing is awesome ... I especially love how the coloured snow dots are mimicked in the sparkly wings of the fairy! Anita :)

Both of your sliders are so cute. I love the sparkly igloo and those sweet fairies. The snow dots are so fun.

This magic, is so crazy and sweety card, i love the fairies!

Cada día hay Bellezas me encantan los detalles el paso a paso genial. Gracias por compartir.

Jennifer, your cards are ADORABLE!!! SO PERFECT for these little Winter Fairies! I LOOOOOOVE the thought of making them HIDDEN SLIDERS! SO COOL!!! You do what I do, I get SO EXCITED making a card, that I forget a step! LOL THAT'S OK!!! BOTH came out FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!! ;) (I like that glitter too!)

Adorable card!!!

Jennifer, your card is WONDERFUL!!!! In saying you "forgot a step," I was referring to the little extra white fairy that you die-cut to go on the backside of the main fairy to make it more sturdy! Your card was EXCELLENTLY DONE!!!!!!!!!! Your making it a hidden slider, is a step above the normal slider card!!! ;)


Super cute Winter Fairies card Jennifer!

Wow! Amazing and creative...and magically beautiful. What an enchanting scene and fabulous design.

Hi Jennifer, This is a fantastic idea !! I'm loving the hidden slider, and the darling faerie is so angelic, I absolutely love everything about this card.
I haven't tried a slider card yet, but I'm really looking forward to trying.
I'm off to see how you created this 'hidden' slider card, thank you for the inspiration.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Love the little igloo and fairy
slider, adorable. Those colored
dots look so pretty on the back

Thanks for the great video. Love this type of slider and how it revealed all the colorful dots of snow !

Hello Jennifer, how beautiful is your card, she is a cute, with her fairies and the snow with her way of colorful little dots that surprise as the feeling appears, instead of the fairy begins its movement showing its wings also very colorful, indeed did you have reservations to these cards with movement? Well, I see that it is proof passed, thanks for the video and thanks for sharing it ...

Qditto to all the above compliments! Snow days are the best part of winter and those fairies with their sparkling wings are delightful!

What a darling card! Love the fun scene you created with these sweet fairies! Awesome creation! Love the hidden color surprise!

Que tierno se ve, me gusta los colores y todos los detalles

I love the darling winter fairies! The soft colors are so pretty!

Absolutely magical!

Like the use of an invisible slider with colors revealed.

What a clever idea to hide the track and make it even more magical.
