Hazel’s top hints & tips
Follow these handy hints and tips from Hazel to get the most from your magic slider cards
You will need to use a solventbased ink such as StazOn for the image that you stamp onto acetate as this will dry relatively quickly and the ink will not smudge the way other inks will.
If you are using a template to create your magic slider card, you will need to be quite accurate with your measurements or it will not run smoothly and may stick. However, if you don’t want to have the hassle of having to measure and cut templates out, there are various magic slider card dies available which just need a quick pass through your die-cutting machine.
If you have a stamp positioner or stamping platform, this will help ensure you get your image in the correct position for both the pocket and the acetate overlay, especially when stamping multiple images.
Don’t just think the slider needs to come from the top; you can also position it to pull horizontally from the sides or from the bottom.
If you are going to place any papers or embellishments on top of your slider, make sure you do not obstruct the opening, otherwise the slider will not come out.
