Trucking Along Bundle for the Inspirations in Ink Fun Fold Blog Hop – September 2023

Today I have an awesome Trucking Along Bundle Slit Slider Birthday Card!

Welcome and thanks for visiting Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts! I am Theresa, a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. Today is the monthly Inspirations in Ink Blog Hop! I am excited to be hopping with talented demonstrators from around the world. Be sure to check out everyone’s Fun Fold projects. The Trucking Along Bundle is an Online Exclusive and is not found in any catalog. You may order from my Online Store HERE.

Today’s Blog Hop is a Fun Fold Hop. Each of us is demonstrating a different Fun Fold. I first learned about the Slit Slider Card from Tina Hamp, who learned it from Julie Davidson. Tina made a Slit Slider Card with the Legendary Ride motorcylcle set. Julie did a cute Slit Slider Card with an octopus. Julie has a video demonstrator of her card HERE.

Prepare the Card Base

  1. Adhere the designer series paper to the Early Espresso card base.
  2. Make a circular finger notch at the midline of the DSP panel on the left. (Use the Circle Dies or the retired 1″ circle punch)
  3. Place the Early Espresso card base in your trimmer at the 1 1/2″ mark, with the 1/2″ score line to the left.
  1. Make a cut from 3/4″ down to 4 3/4″.


  1. Use Memento Ink to stamp the pick up truck on a scrap of Basic White cardstock. Stamp the “Farm Fresh” sentiment on the door.
  2. Color with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers as desired.
  1. Stamp the “Happy Birthday” sentiment on the Basic White cardstock for the inside. Punch a hole in the midline near the left edge for the ribbon. Thread the ribbon through the hole. Tip: this ribbon frays easily so I used a lighter to melt the ends.
  2. Stamp “Celebrate You Today” to straddle the slit and so that it will hide behind the pick up truck.

Putting it Together

  1. Take out the 3/4″ x 3″ Basic White cardstock strip. Add a strip of the Adhesive Foam Strips to the bottom as close to the edge as possible. This is the mechanism for moving the pick up.
  1. Slide the strip into the slit, up underneath until the strip of Foam Adhesive Strips is close to the slit.
  2. Flip this over.
  1. Apply Multipurpose Liquid Glue (or Tear & Tape) to 2/3 of the top of the Basic White cardstock strip.
  2. Adhere the Basic White cardstock with the Happy Birthday sentiment to the strip by laying it in position to cover the panel. Be sure the Happy Birthday is on the back to the right.
  1. Fold the Early Espresso cardstock on the score lines. Use a strip of Tear & Tape on the 1/2″ flap. Fold the top panel down over the 1/2″ strip and secure it.
  2. Flip over to the front. Adhere the pick up to the mechanism.
  1. Add the Wink of Stella to the snow drifts.
  2. Add the Iridescent Rhinestones as desired.
