Penny Slider- Thank you cards

My son just turned 7 this past weekend! How time flies. We had a great time celebrating his birthday with his friends and family at the Legoland Discovery Center.

When thinking about creating these cards, I wanted it to be interactive, fun and of course, Lego themed! So what better way than to do a penny slider card?

The supplies used:

  • Lego paper can be found on Pinterest. There are a lot of free Lego papers to download. Emmet is also a free image off the internet. (cut at 3 7/8" x 5 1/8")

  • Base: Red cardstock (cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4")

  • Layer: Black cardstock (4" x 5 1/4")

  • Stampin Up dimensionals

  • Bone Folder

  • Stamp

  • Momento black ink

  • 2 Pennies

  • Slider die or you can cut a rectangle large enough to fit the dimensionals or foam tape.

How to create: (I would print and cut everything first and then put them together using the instructions below)

  1. Create card base

  2. Adhere Lego paper to black cardstock

  3. Add slider die onto the Lego/black cardstock and run through your die cut machine. You can also manually cut a rectangle as long as it's large enough to fit your dimensionals or foam tape.

  4. Add dimensional onto the slider (whatever image you choose), then add a penny.

  5. Line up the dimensional under the slider slit and then attach another dimensional to the penny and add another penny. A penny sandwich :-) Slider is finished.

  6. Add foam tape/foam squares to the back of the layer with the slider and attach to front of the card base.

  7. Decorate front and inside as you'd like.

  8. I had extra Lego pieces that I fussy cut and attached inside the card.

There you have it! Pretty simple! I left a lot of space for my son to write inside the card. He tends to write big and he needs the space.

Try it out! I will do this again with some new products from Stampin Up! Excited to showcase and play around!

Now, let's get crafting!
