I am joining in the Crafty Meraki IG hop today sharing this fun interactive birthday card that I made for my husband!
I used these products all found in the Crafty Meraki store:
- MFT BB Adorable Adventures stamps & coordinating dies
- MFT Slimline Grassy Hills die-namics
- MFT Slimline Starter die-namics
- MFT Rolling Clouds stencil
- Heffy Doodle Slimline Pull Tab dies
- Oxide inks: antique linen, peeled paint, crushed olive & shabby shutters
I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base which fits nicely into your standard size envelopes.
For my background, I first die cut the stitched scalloped panel from kraft cardstock and glued to the front of my card. I then die cut another stitched panel this time from Bristol Smooth cardstock and inked the clouds with the stencil and antique linen. I cut 2 grass pieces and inked both of them with peeled paint, crushed olive & shabby shutters. I glued the larger one down leaving a bit of space to tuck in my images.
Next, I stamped my camp cuties and accessories, colored them with copic markers and then used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
Now to create the interactive element. I first lined up where I wanted my boy to slide and cut the notch on the left side of my card. I saved the top piece to just add for my pull tab. I then die cut the slit through both the grass and the cloud panel.
Next, I die cut all the pieces for the pull tab mechanism and put it through the slit, trimming the top to fit my boy on with glue. I also stamped my pull onto the grass and adhered it to the top of the tab. Then I just pulled him back a forth for a bit!
To put the card together, I added the bottom grass with foam tape leaving space to tuck in my images. I either glued or used foam tape to add my camp scene. To finish, I simply stamped the sentiment with versafine black ink!
