Slider Cards (inspired by Birka)

Hello crafty fellows! Today I show you a slider card. I was inspired by Birka who made two wonderful slider cards. You can also find here video tutorial here
So, I really wanted to try this out and because I wasn't sure whether I will get this to work I started with a clean and simple card. I have also made another one which will come to the blog tomorrow. 

For this card you need three panels. One front panel and two smaller ones for the left and right side. Because Birka has a nice tutorial on her YouTube channel I won't go into details here. I stamped the German sentiment "Glück ist, Freunde wie dich zu haben" (I am lucky to have friends like you) with Classic Cherry Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. 

On the smaller panels I stamped the little fox and mole with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and also the sentiments "Ich musste gerade an dich denken" (I was just thinking about you) and "Hallöchen" (hi there).  I colored the images with Spectrum Noir markers and adhered them to the fancy plastic bag mechanism.
To be able to get the smaller panels out, I also included a bit of red-and-white bakers twine to one of the panels.

In hindsight I have to say that the paper I used was not thick enough. The sliding mechanism works fine but the panels tend to bend.
