Interactive Valentine Cards


Hi, and welcome back, everyone! Today I'm sharing a "No-See" Interactive card. What makes it now see? You don't see the mechanisms that make it interactive, it's like magic. Of course, I had to use this cutie from Whimsy Stamps, VooDoo Stamps. Of course, I have a video tutorial and I've included a step-by-step pictorial below.





HOW TO


Start by die-cutting the following: two slimline windows; clouds and grass using scrap blue and green cardstock; wood fence using tan cardstock

Stamp images onto #80 smooth cardstock, stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamp the image two times

Color with E41, E42, E43, and R29; add shading with polychromos; detail with a gold gel pen

Run through Scan N Cut or fussy cut; glue together with liquid adhesive; let dry

On a 31/8thw x 81/8th L piece of white cardstock create a sky using Memento Summer Sky ink

Add Memento Summer Sky to the edge of die-cut clouds and Bamboo Leaves to die-cut grass

Use glue to stack frames together and glue to the back panel


Glue clouds, grass, and fence into windows

Add Summer Sky around edges of 4" x 9" slimline card

Add mounting foam to the back of panel creating a track for pull tab

Adhere no-see mechanism to the back of the image and to pull tab

Remove paper backing from the foam

Cover with white cardstock trim to fit


Add glue to the back and center on the card base

Lay down Distress Oxide Inks in the colors Barn Door, Crushed Olive, and Tumbled Glass on a scrap piece of paper

Run through the die-cut machine with flowers from the Curved Hills Die Set


Add to card with adhesive foam circles

Finish off with Jelly Hearts and On Point Glue

So, there you have no-see interactive cards. Interactive cards are so much fun, especially, for small children. Thanks for stopping by today.
