Lily Pond Lane Puzzle Slider card

Handmade card made using paper featuring ducks on a pond

Recently I’ve been seeing a few of the puzzle slider cards (created by Susan Campfield – click here for the link to her blog post) but they’ve always been either two or four sections slotting together. I’ve always heard that to make things look appealing artistically, you should do things with odd numbers. For example, add three or five rhinestones when adding bling to your card, or have three objects in a photo to make it balanced. So I decided I wanted to make a puzzle slider card with three sections slotting together and made this Lily Pond Lane puzzle slider card.

As I am in Australia, I use A4 cardstock (metric sizing). Since our metric cards are 10.5 cm wide/high depending on their orientation, it was very easy for me to divide this to have three 3.5cm sections.

The Lily Pond Lane Designer Series Paper (DSP) with its lovely scenery was perfect for this card, and I fussy cut images from another piece from the same pack for the duck standing on the grass, the mother with ducklings and the extra duckling on the water, plus another mother and duckling for the back of the card.

I put the mat to write on at the back of the card so that it didn’t detract from the card when on display. I used another scenery piece to put inside the card to compliment the outside.

I haven’t added a sentiment yet – not sure what I will use. So far, there is NO stamping at all on this card, only cardstock and DSP!

Once I’d worked out the various measurements, it was easy to put together and I love how its turned out.

Happy crafting
