Recently I got my hands on an amazing stamp set with a gorgeous cake as one of the images. I wanted to create a unique card instead of the Standard A2 size. So, I came up with this fun twist on a tri-fold card. I added a pop out type circle featuring the image.
I just love how when it is opened the image is shown, Such a fun card to give and make. Here is the video tutorial on how to create your own:
Lawn Fawn has the best interactive dies on the market. Usually I can withstand the temptation to purchase them, but then the Magic Picture Changer came along and I just had to have it. The Magic Picture Changer allows the card holder to pull a tab and reveal a different image.
Cute little card, right? Then start pulling the tab…
To reveal another picture!
Tips and Tricks
There are a few things to keep in mind when creating a card with this die.
Stamp the images after you die cut your pieces.
Use a little powder on the pieces to ensure a smooth transition.
The scored lines are to be folded and adhered to create a track for the card.
Adhere the pieces by placing adhesive in the corners and not along the edges. This will allow everything to move freely while holding it together.
Place the tab on last. This will not only serve as a cute way to tell the holder to pull it, but it also is a blocker. It will stop the inside piece from poking out of the bottom of the card.
I created a tutorial on how to assemble these types of cards. It will provide clarity on the above tips.
I recently have started swapping pocket letters with a great group of online ladies. When I was asked to join the “Denim and Diamond” swap I did not hesitate. Once I realized what I signed up for I was a little scared. I kept thinking of cowgirls, but did not want to incorporate that into it. I then realized that I had an old pair of my daughter’s jeans that had bling on the leg. She wore them all the time when she was 6 (ten years ago) and I found them for her at Walmart for $6. I decided to use those as the base. I first cut them down to ATC size (2.5 by 3.5) and mod podged them with extreme glitter Mod Podge to a baseball card for stability. As they dried I added my signature stamp to the back of nine ATC blue cardstock cut bases. Once they were dry I attacked them to the blue cardstock. I inked up one of Rita Barakat’s stamps with white paint and stamped it in a random order on the denim. I decided on this particular stamp because the circles in the hair looked like places for bling. Once it dried I added gems and bling items from my stash and stuffed a baseball sleeve to create the pocket letter. It was missing something so I created a layered heart embellishment and a shabby chic flower from the leftover denim. I added a butterfly charm and attached it to the sleeve.
I never dreamed that my scraps (literally!) would create something beautiful. To make the two embellishments check out this video:
