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.
Do let me know your thoughts in the comments.
Thank you for stopping by… Have a great day ahead!
