SLIDER CARD - Moving on Down the Highway!

Several months ago my classes made a spinner card, where our sun spun around a circle track on the front of the card.  I wanted to show another way to get object movement on a card without the weight and bulk of the pennies required for the spinner card.  So a slider card was our project. I used the Stamp of the Month from CTMH - The Long Way Home - that will be available throughout the month of June (and added a few stamps from a couple of other sets to get just the right images and sentiments!).  Heart2Heart Challenges has a "Transportation" challenge running during May, so this card is being entered over there.  Pop over to their blog to see the other projects with this theme!

You can see all of the fun images in this stamp set.  I wanted to make this a card that could be used for birthdays or even Father's Day, so I used my handy-dandy micro-tip scissors and cut off (yes, I cut my stamps) the word "SCENIC" from the image at the bottom right.  I always cut at an angle so I can match it up again when I want to use the original sentiment on a project.  This gave me the option of adding a different event on the front of the card.  I found both the "Birthday" and "Father's Day" sentiments on different sets, but they worked great.  We stamped the "Route" first and then fit the appropriate event stamp where it needed to be.  This is such a great way to get extra mileage from your stamps!

It was fun to create the look of a highway by using Whisper cardstock and CTMH's 
Chalk Marker to draw the lane lines.  The car can now travel down the highway and stay on track!

For those who love the old VW vans, we had the option of using that image on the card front.
Here's a list of everything I used on the card.  All of the materials are from CTMH except where noted.

How do you make this slider? Only know the penny and rotating circle.
