Tips, Tutorials, & Techniques - Creating Interactive Cards

Happy new week to you from us here at the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog. Are you ready to learn something new to start things right? You're in the right spot, then!

This week we're going to delve into the fun world of Creating Interactive Cards.

There's something fun about the element of surprise when the recipient opens a card. And truth be told, it's pretty fun to make them, too!

Today's video will give you fantastic step by step instructions to create your very own spinner card! Kimberly shares an absolutely gorgeous birthday card by Anna using the Tweet Friends stamp set and Cheerful Cages Die-namics. Watch the video below or click HERE to watch it on YouTube.

Pretty awesome, right? I love the idea of allowing the cage to swing around in the window that was created in the card front.

Let's take a look at a few examples of other projects that include interactive elements.

Inge created this bright and cheerful card using the Gumball Greetings Card Kit. She used a shaker pouch and dimensional circle confetti in conjunction with the adorable gumball machine Die-namics to create an interactive experience for this colorful thank you card.

Lisa gives her card an interactive element by die cutting the Rectangle Peek-a-Boo Window Die-namics in the card front to create a window. The pattern and chicken from the Farm-tastic stamp set are actually in the inside of the card!
