Interactive Cards #1

Hi everyone!  I'm so sorry friends, but I was WAY too tired to post the specifics about all 5 cards I put together last night!  So tonight, my goal is to update you on how I created each of these 5 little guys (this post and the next 4).  The reason for this creative explosion was yesterday's contest on Nichole Heady's blog.  We were challenged to come up with interactive cards for a chance to win some amazing prizes which included a $500 PTI gift card! know me and my PTI, I just HAD to participate and get in as many entries as possible!  I can now however, deliver the unforunate news that I was NOT the winner.  **sniff sniff**  I'm coping though!

So this first card was made using a technique I found on a great youtube video.  For all the mechanical instructions I highly suggest taking a peek at the footage. 

I love how this card slides out and can actually stand on its own once it's finished.  Pretty clever! 

Thanks so much for visiting...stay tuned for the next one!


Paper: PTI's Dark Chocolate, Ocean Tides, Berry Sorbet, and Aqua Mist and patterned paper from The Paper Studio
Stamps: PTI's Rosie Posie, Think Big Favorites #12, and Background Basics: Text Style
Ink: PTI's Fresh Snow, Berry Sorbet, Dark Chocolate, and Aqua Mist
Dies: PTI's Rosie Posie and a random heart punch I had (to make the "pull" spot at the bottom of the card)
Other:  Glittery "rhinestone"
