Video: Interactive Hidden Message Typewriter
Good morning! Jess here with a fun interactive card using the new Typewriter Fancy Die. When you pull the paper the full message is revealed!
And I have a video for today's card that you can watch below or over at our YouTube channel HERE.
To start I die-cut the Typewriter Fancy Die from white cardstock and colored it with Copic markers in shades of teal and grey. I trimmed off the top paper from the typewriter die cut to create my own message. Next I stamped the Novel Prose Bold Prints stamp onto bristol smooth cardstock with Embossing & Watermark ink and heat-embossed it with White Embossing Powder. Then I used a blending brush to blend a little Pool Party and Blue Raspberry Reactive ink around the edges of the panel.
Next I stamped my message with Intens-ified Black ink using the Luggage Tag Alpha and Hello Stamp & Cut sets onto a piece of white cardstock cut to 1 3/4" by 3 3/4". I die-cut lots of hearts from the Nesting Hearts Infinity Die set using Hero Hues Cherry cardstock. I adhered one heart to the strip of paper to complete my message and kept the rest for later. I also die-cut the 'hello' from the Hello There Stamp & Cut using the same Cherry cardstock and just trimmed off the 'there.'
To create the interactive portion of the card I cut a 2" by 1/8" inch slit on the embossed panel. Then I added a stopper to the bottom of my paper strip cut to 2 1/4" by 1/4". I adhered the stopper to the bottom of the strip and then slid the strip through the slit on the embossing panel. I used foam mounting tape to adhere the typewriter and cover the slit. Then I adhered the embossed panel to a Hero Hues Dove White Top Folding card base using foam mounting tape. The foam mounting tape just allows the slit to slide in and out easily. Finally I finished the card by adding the rest of the sentiment and the hearts.
I hope this inspires you to add some interactive elements to your cards! Thanks so much for stopping by and have an amazing day!
