Some Odd Girl - Tutorial - Double Slider Card

Hello! I'm here today, with my post that's just gone live over on the Stamp Spot Blog
Ok, so for the Double Slider card, you will need 1 piece of cardstock, cut to 5.5 inches x 11 inches, two pieces of cardstock, or patterned paper, cut to 3.5 inches x 4 inches, double sided tape, scotch tape, a plastic shopping bag (the grocery kind) a ruler, a paper trimmer, and a small piece of ribbon
Ok, so on the piece of cardstock, score lines at - 2.5 inches, 6.5 inches and 10.5 inches.
Then, using your paper trimmer, or scissors, cut out a small notch on either side of the 2.5 inch piece so it looks like the piece below - 
Get your shopping bag, and cut a strip from it, around an inch wide. Wrap it around the 2.5 inch piece, where the notches have come out, tape the ends to each other, and trim so you don't have a whole lot hanging out. Make sure it is able to spin around the cardstock without too much difficulty. 
This next step, I forgot to take a photo of.... so, have a badly edited picture -
Then place the patterned paper you want to pop up at the top, making sure it all lines up. Turn over this piece and put tape at the top of the plastic bag, and put the patterned paper you want to appear at the base, make sure it lines up with the front one, and looks straight (ish) Attach ribbon pull to the top piece of patterned paper (at the back) 
The smallest scored piece of the 11inch long piece gets attached to the inside and it folds up to look like a card. Here is mine... 
The front, which I have decorated with Some Odd Girl - Hey Kaylee, which was stamped on X-Press It blending Paper and coloured using my Spectrum Noir Markers. I also paper pieced her dress, (wooh polka dots!) The sentiment strip is MFT Die-Namic's Sentiment Strips 
 Here is the card all pulled out. How adorable is the little turtle? He comes with the Hey Kaylee! Set!
I coloured him like normal, and then went back over him with the thin point of the Spectrum Noirs and added a whole bunch of dots to give him some added texture. He is sitting happily on some patterned paper that features Leaves. 
Oh, and have an extra shot of Kaylee - 
The patterned paper all came from a paper pad by Authentique, the paper flowers are a mix of kaisercraft and non-name ones. The cute chipboard frame, is a Tiddleybitz piece from a frames set I picked up at the Newcastle Show.
 I hope you enjoyed my tutorial :)
