Today’s card is a fun interactive card and I’ve teamed it with a fun set – Turtle Friends. I created one of these cards a couple of years ago with a masculine theme and decided to recreate it using current products. To create this card you’ll need your Paper Trimmer, Foam Adhesive Strips and Dimensionals.
Isn’t he cute? Pull the tab on the right and Mr Turtle will slide across the card and reveal a hidden message.
Using my blending brushes I created the background and then cut out the slot. I should have taken a photo mid construction to show how the back of the card and slider mechanism works – oh well I will just have to create another card and do that step.
I already had Mr Turtle cut out on my desk but he was a different colour so I gave him a new ‘paint job’ with the Granny Apple Green Stampin Blend so that he matched his shell (which was also on my desk).
The ‘happy birthday’ is stamped on a piece of cardstock and adhered to the card base. The card front is adhered with Foam Adhesive Strips – make sure you add these to your next order as they are great for a number of projects.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this card and keep an eye out for another version soon.
Until next time …
