Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

This week for Mix it Up Monday I challenge you to create an interactive card!  If you've never made one before, this challenge gives you lots of room to experiment with different techniques and images to create a card that has some time type of motion and requires the recipient to interact with the card somehow beyond just opening it to read what's inside! :)

For my sample, I thought it would be fun to use Becky's glasses from Spoon Me for the top half of a hinged card, the way you raise your glasses, you know?) and then have the reveal of the vision chart when opened. 


Pattern is created with Tami's new Simple Hearts set.


Here some other types of interactive cards:

You can find examples of all these in our STV gallery for inspiration and construction, Gina has even done a few videos!  Whether you choose to create a design that is your favorite to make, one you've been wanting to try, and begin with an image you want to set in motion, I can't wait to see what you make!  See the rules below.  Have fun!

Now let's see your interactive cards....they can be for any occasion!  All entries must be uploaded by Sunday, Jan. 27 by 8 pm Central.  Please use the keyword: STV13MON3 in all caps in the tag section when you upload. 

Here is the Gallery STV13MON3

Oh, not sure if I can do something interactive or not. But will do some research and perhaps try it later. I do love your design though. Might be a way to use up my tags in a creative way as well. Hmmmmmm! Not sure if that is permissible though for this challenge, since I already put them as tags in the last one. I know it has to be a new project.

How fun Mel!!!!  And I totally LOVE that card!!!

Too cool Mel!  I hope to make one, havent in ages!  Love yoru sample too!

I've uploaded my card, but now I can't find it!  hope it shows up in my gallery soon.

Love your card Melanie!  I must put my thinking cap on for this.  Looks like fun. : )

Awesome card and fun challenge idea Mel!  :)

Great challenge idea!  Going to have to put on my thinking cap!

OH that is a great card!! I will have a go!!!  What to do...what to do!!!

How fun Melanie - I love your card!

Here's my Smooth Operator Spinner card. I can see that making spinner cards is a really fast thing to do with the proper tools. But be sure to use thicker cardstock on the spinner part if you use the die I did. Oh, and I am not sure the link to the gallery works either. Might want to check that Melanie. But what a fun challenge and I love your card you created.

Boo hoo, I will miss this one as I will be away for 5 weeks.  Love the challenge!

Well, Lindsay, have a wonderful time while you are gone. I hope it is a fun occasion and not a hiatus because of other issues.
