Hello everyone! I have 3 fun Interactive cards for you today!

I made these interactive cards for the ongoing Craftangles ‘Seasons’ challenge.

3 fun Interactive Cards! 1

I have used Craftangles stamps, stencils, liquid watercolours and blending brushes to make these cards. If you would like to see how I’ve made the cards, you will find them on the HNDMD youtube channel.

For the first card, I used the Lawn Fawn reveal wheel die, to make this interactive card.

I die cut the background panel and then created the clouds using the Craftangles ‘Nature’ stencil and Tim Holtz black soot distress ink. I cut a circle in the background so that I could add the reveal wheel circle element, which I coloured with the four primary colours to create a rainbow effect. I then die cut and placed another panel (with the stencilled clouds) over this panel, so that I partially covered the circle. So as you turn the wheel, you can see the colours change.

I stamped, watercoloured and fussy cut the girl with the umbrella from the Craftangles ‘Girl in the rain’ stamp set and adhered it to the card with double sided foam tape so that it seems like the rainbow is turning around her umbrella.

You can see it here in the video.

For the second intereactive card, I decided to make a pull tab card, using the Lawn Fawn pull tab die.

I found the little crab from the ‘By the seaside stamp set’ was so cute and perfect for this card.

I found that the slit die given in the set, created a slit that was too small for my purpose. So I die cut it twice so that the crab could go all the way down and be fully hidden.

Here is how I did it..

I havent cut it perfectly, but with a little adjustment, it works.

The pull tab is assembled and ready for the stamped image.

To create this card, I die cut two sheets of card to create the sand and blended it with

TimHoltz Vintage photo distress ink.

I then coloured the base card (on which I had die cut the slit) with ‘Salty Ocean’ distress ink.

I splattered some water and lifted off some ink with a rag to create some interest.

I then coloured and fussy cut the shell images and the crab image from the “By the seaside” stamp set.

I then put together the mechanism and adhered the crab and the shells.

Isn’t he super cute?!

Such a fun interactive card.

For the third card, I used a fun technique demonstrated by

Jennifer McGuire here.

This technique allows the stamped image to seemingly float around the background. Its super fun and super easy to do too.

Here is how to put the mecanism together.

Die cut a circle.

Punch out two circles from thick card. They should be larger in size than the circle die cut above.

Adhere a slider bead to the centre of one of the large punched circles.

Place this circle below the card base, so that the bead comes through the die cut circle. Apply adhesive to the top of the bead.

Adhere the other large circle to the bead and leave it to dry.

Your floating mechanism is now ready. You can adhere any stamped and cut image to this large circle and it will allow the image to move around on the background. If you want a larger range of movement, You can die cut a larger circle. The image will move only as much as the circumference of the die cut circle.

You can see how I made it here.

For the background, I wanted to create a background of multicoloured clouds.

I have seen others doing it a lot lately, and I wanted to give it a try.

I made a few mistakes, but in the end, it looks quite nice.

I used the Craftangles ‘Nature stencil’ and Craftangles Blending brushes along with Tim Holtx distress inks.

I stamped, water coloured (with Craftangles liquid watercolours) and fussy cut the super cute image of the girl with her friends in the umbrella from the Craftangles ‘girl in the rain’ stamp set.

I added a sentiment from the same stamp set and adhered this panel to a A2 card base.

I did not use double sided foam tape to adhere the panel as I wanted to restrict the movement of the image. Otherwise it would spin around.
