Hippo Wishes!

Hi Crafties!

Today I have something other than cards for you!

Any guesses?

Well, it’s a money envelope! 💌

I used my envelope punch board to make the envelope with white cardstock.

To add interest, I tore a yellow piece of cardstock and mounted it alongwith fussy cut hippo images from ‘Happy Hippos’ stamp set by Mft.

The ‘happy’ word is from Concord and 9th. I adhered 2 diecuts together to give 3D effect.

I made this envelope on order for a lil one’s birthday!

Do let me know your thoughts in the comments.

Thank you for stopping by… Have a great day ahead!

Interactive Adorable Elephants

Hiya Crafties!

Making interactive cards is so much fun. It’s true that the efforts that we put are ten times more than making a simple card. But the satisfaction that you get when your card actually moves and surprises you is ten fold! That is totally worth the efforts, isn’t it? 😄

I made this card for MFT 2018 Card Design Superstar – Innovation Master.

Below is a video of my card in action –

There are so many wonderful entries!

I hope you like my card too ☺.

I spent a lot of time designing this card. A. Lot.

I literally went over it again & again in my mind, till I was satisfied with the idea!

I actually had made another card with another stamp set by MFT but then this one caught my heart ❤

After designing, executing the idea perfectly was the next task.

This required the next Lot of time! [Obviously 😋 ]

I decided to go for a quadruple slider card. My card is 5.5 × 5.5 inch square card.

The front panel has a hidden double slider.

The right hand panel has the spinning wheel mechanism.

And the left hand panel is a pop up slider card.

I made all the mechanisms by hand. As I did not have the corresponding MFT diesets.

I used the ‘Adorable Elephants stamp set’ for the main images. The other images come from the ‘Happy Hippos stamp set’, the clouds from ‘Magical Dragons stamp set’ & the hearts from the ‘Once upon a time stamp set’.

For the little gift in the spinning wheel, I partially stamped the hippo image holding a gift and then drew the remaining outline with a fine tip black pen. Phew! 😅

I also used the instagram camera-die from the ‘Cute Cameras die-namics’ for the spinning wheel panel and ‘Surf & Turf dieset’ for the green hills.

Where I didn’t have the required MFT diesets, I fussy cut everything! The circles, the slits etc.

The front panel is watercolored. And the other panels are blended with Distress oxides Wild Honey & Squeezed Lemonade.

This is my card in its full glory 😉.

If we are counting all kinds of ‘Lots’ then let me say –

I had a Lot of fun too.

Learnt so many new things while making this card.

If it were not for MFT, I wouldn’t have learned so many new techniques on my own.

I hope you enjoy watching my card as much as I enjoyed making it.
