Hi everyone! Ilina here! Today I have a little interactive card to share with you. I made this card with kids in mind, and having three little ones myself, I know that they love interactive cards and it really adds a little more excitement for them.
Watch the video below to see how this card came together (or you can go to YouTube to watch it in HD)
To make the card start with a piece of Pesto cardstock and stamp the Jungle Bold Prints using Embossing and Watermark ink. Die cut two concentric circles to create the channel for the spinning mechanism (ring). Trim the panel to 3 3/4" x 5" making sure the circle die cut is centered. Using foam adhesive adhere to 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Mustard cardstock. Adhere the center circle using foam adhesive.
Tip: Make sure you don't apply foam adhesive too close to the circles, so the spinning mechanism has space to move around.
Cut a small piece of foam adhesive and adhere two pennies together. Make sure it fits comfortably in the channel for the mechanism.
Tip: To make it spin better, apply anti static powder on the mechanism and the channel for it. The more you play, the better it'll start spinning.
Stamp the lion on Dove White cardstock with Intense Black ink, color and die cut. Adhere to the mechanism using foam adhesive. Make sure it spins nicely; if it's not, it is probably is because the foam adhesive is too close to the edges, or the one between the two pennies is too large. Both should be easy to fix.
Make a top folding note card from Pumpkin cardstock and adhere the panel to it using foam mounting tape. Voila ;)
Thank you so much for stopping by, hope you have a creative day!
