Hi there. I wasn’t sure if I was going to get my third and final entry into MFT’s Card Design Superstar Contest before I leave on a short trip, but I made it. As I mentioned in my last post, I have a lot of cute stamp sets from MFT, so I decided to pull a few out to create an interactive kids birthday card. My card was inspired by MFT’s Interactive Cake die and Party on a Card post by Sandy Allnock a coupe of days ago. And being a kids’ birthday card, I made it bright and colorful.
Here’s a short video on how it works. Unfortunately, I am new to videos and don’t know how to maximize the screen. If you have any suggestions, please contact me (tab above).
The bear pops up and surprises everyone at the party! *lol*
So let’s get started. On some white scrap pieces of ultrasmooth paper and my MISTI, I stamped with black Memento ink the gifts and bear from Beary Special Birthday. I used the masking technique to create the interactive image pieces. I colored with Copics and fussy cut them out. The white embossed surprise sentiment was a piece I didn’t use when I made THIS CARD because I opted for one with fishtail ends. I adhered the sentiment to the bear so he looks like he’s holding it.
Next, I die cut a Wonky Stitched Rectangle from ultrasmooth cardstock. I stamped the dragon from Magical Dagons, the elephant from Adorable Elephants and the balloons also from Beary Special Birthday directly on that piece and colored with Copics. For the slider portion, I used Surf & Turf with discs and did partial die-cutting to get a shorter slide channel. To put the card together, I used this video as a guide.
Once all pieces were attached and in place, I mounted the rectangle panel on foam adhesive. To finish, I added some sequins and glossy accents to the balloons.
