Vintage Double Slider Card

I have been so into Vintage / Shabby Chic lately I can't believe it.  I love the new Presto Patterns DSP by Stampin' Up!  And those new Smooch Spritzes, Oh My Goodness!!!!
Yesterday I took a card project to my Wednesday morning Ladies Group  THIS was the card we did.  We spent a long time stamping and embossing the Bella Toile background before we could get into the colouring part.  Then I came home to design a slider card for this month's Technique Class and decided to carry on with the Vintage theme, but use the new Presto Patterns Specialty DSP and the Smooch Spritzes available starting Saturday, May 1st in the new Summer Mini Catalogue.  Sorry I can't show you pix of the paper or the spritzes as they are not released to the public yet.  But I can show you the results, and they are fabulous.  Here is the card I created.......
I used Creamy Caramel cardstock for the base.  I am trying to use some of the colours that are disappearing as a fond farewell to them.  The contrasting colour is Bravo Burgundy.  The mesh type paper and the bella toile type paper are two of the six designs from the new Presto Patterns Sp. DSP.  Aren't they great.  For the mesh one, I just spritzed some Log Cabin Smooch Spritz on it, then wiped it around using TP (which I have heard lately called Technical Paper - really its toilet paper).  The sparkle on it is unbelieveable.  The flower piece I first sponged on Bravo Burgundy ink in varying degrees of coverage, then spritzed it with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz another one of the new ones.  Again, the shimmer is spectacular.  These spritzes are much more intense than making spritzes with the Shimmer Paints. They both work, but have different uses and results.  I love them all.  Here is a close up view of the front, I tried to get the shimmer in the picture but don't think I did it justice, oh my its gorgeous.....

As I said this is a slider card, so here is the card partially open:

For the handle to pull out the slider part (you can just see the bottom of the round tab punch on the far right hand side) I used a piece of the mesh type paper from the front.  I used Asian Artistry stamp set for the stamps, and the flowers on the front are stamped again, fussy cutt out, and popped up on Dimensionals for a 3D effect.
Here are the side panels........

These cards are super fun to make, but not easy.  They can be confusing if you don't get things put together just right, it won't slide.  HERE is a tutorial by Dawn at Dawn's Stamping Studio. 
  Thanks for visiting, have a great day!!!  Glenda Mollet

I love the card design and pull out sides. Very pretty, and I love the new vanilla spritz too. It's fun to play with it.
