Slide and Lock Gatefold Christmas Cards

Hello fellow crafters,
After I shared the PFS Slide and Lock Fun Fold Card, I received several requests for a tutorial on making the slide and lock gatefold card. So I decided to create a tutorial and share it with you all. I actually made two different designs of the Slide and Lock fun fold cards, and you can find them in the tutorial.


Merry Mug Slide and Lock Card

I previously created a card in the same style, but the mug can be removed. Also, the card receiver can be reused as a sliding mug for Christmas Tree Ornaments.

It’s easy and fun to make this card and slide the mug.

Since I didn’t add a Christmas greeting on the card front, I put the greeting on the card instead.

To shade the mug, I used a paper pouncer.

A tutorial on how to make these cards can be found above.

Poinsettia Slide and Lock Gatefold Card

If you want to create shapes other than circles for your card slider, this card may be useful.

I didn’t forget to stamp the Christmas Greeting inside of the card.

I added some Gold Hot foiled Christmas greetings on the Poinsettia.

I am glad you took the time to read this post. I hope it has motivated you to unleash your creativity. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or feedback. I’m looking forward to sharing more content with you soon.
