A snowman screams a slider card to me so today I have a special treat showing you how to make a snowman slider card!
This adorable skating snowman instantly had me thinking of an interactive handmade card. Some of you may know this as a penny spinner card. It’s easy to create and I’ve included a video tutorial at then end of this blog post with step by step instructions so you can make your own slider card.

I used the Spirited Snowman stamp set (Holiday Catalog page 38). Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, I have the best memories of building snowmen. Winters in Illinois are incredibly long and cold but nothing beat the winter blues than bundling up (which seemed to take an hour!) and heading out for some fresh, crisp air and what we called “snowman construction”! My grandmother would place a pile of misfit clothing items in a plastic laundry basket and we would take it outside and construct and decorate for as long as we could tolerate the cold. The best part was the hot cocoa and marshmallows she would have waiting for us when we came inside.
This slider card uses two pennies, nestled between a Mini Dimensional. These smaller Dimensionals are the perfect size so they don’t impede on the penny and slider card track. I’ll give you lots of tips about making the track and placement of the pennies in the video. I’ll also share a really important tip on where to place the full size Dimensionals on the back of the slider card so that your image moves effortlessly.
Just think of all the wonderful images you could use on your slider cards. Birds, dogs, cats, reindeer – the list goes on. This fun card will have your family and friends shaking, spinning and sliding it for hours! This card making design is also perfect for DIY Birthday card ideas!
