Just wanted to share the lovely card we made at our recent class in Hailsham, which was inspired by a Ronda Wade design.  It uses a very simple slider mechanism to make a really cute and original card design.  The beauty of this design is that it fits into a standard C6 envelope and as long as your decoration on the front is kept fairly flat it is a standard UK letter rate for postage.   I have included the instructions to make the card and a picture of the reverse which helps to explain the mechanism.  The key to a successful slide is a smooth ribbon.  I used a retired Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon which worked well and went with my design.   

Hope you like it, the ladies in class certainly did.
