Here's another fun interactive card I created using the Move Me Bundle from Stampin' Up!
I created this one to send to my granddaughter on her 11 month birthday!
Lots of moving parts and surprises inside!
Perfect for little hands to explore!
The butterfly is stamped on an insert that fits inside the pouch on the front of the card.
When you pull up the insert, the butterfly flutters.
Of course, this is one of those cards that you have to see in action to get the full effect.
I created a short video so you can see the movement of the card:
And it is easy to make!
Cut a piece of 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of Berry Burst card stock and score at 4 1/4" to create your card base.
Cut a piece of Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series paper 5" x 3 3/4" to be used as your card front.
Center the louver piece from Move Me Thinlits Dies on the designer paper, and cut out using the Big Shot. The sandwich used should be the Big Shot Platform, Thin Die Adapter, Precision Base Plate, card stock, die, and upper cutting plate.
To finish the cut-out square, create a square frame by nesting 2 square framelits dies onto a piece of Berry Burst card stock and cut out using the Big Shot.
Apply SNAIL Adhesive along the edges of the frame. Use your Silicone Craft Mat to catch any overflow from the adhesive.
Stamp "hi there" from You Move Me (2 stamps) along the upper edge of the border using Berry Burst ink.
To create the pouch, cut a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of Powder Pink card stock to mat the designer paper.
Carefully layer and hold the pieces together with your fingers and cut out the top notch using 1 1/4" circle punch.
Apply Foam Adhesive Strips along the three backside edges of the designer paper.
Remove the backing on the foam adhesive and attach the designer paper piece to the Powder Pink mat. Attach to front of Berry Burst card base.
Now to create the insert. Cut a piece of 4 3/4" x 3 1/4" Whisper White card stock. Stamp the 2-step butterfly from You Move Me.
There are two images of the butterfly. One large, the other smaller. Stamp the large butterfly using Powder Pink ink. Then stamp the smaller butterfly using Berry Burst ink. The stamps are photopolymer, so they are easy to see where you are stamping. You don't want the lines of the butterflies to be lined up. You want the lines of the smaller butterfly to be offset from the lines of the larger butterfly. It will look blurry, but that is ok. That offset makes the fluttering effect work.
Stamp the greeting using Berry Burst ink. Mat to a 5" x 3 1/2" Wild Wasabi card stock. Fold a piece of ribbon in half and staple to the top of the insert. This will be used to pull the insert out of the pouch.
Stamp flowers and 2-step small butterflies on scrap piece of Whisper White card stock using Berry Burst and Powder Pink inks. Stamp leaves onto scrap piece of Wild Wasabi card stock using Old Olive ink. Cut out using coordinating Move Me Thinlits Dies and attach to front of card. Cut flower stamens out of scrap piece of Wild Wasabi card stock using Move Me Thinlits Die and attach to flowers using Glue Dots or Fine Tip Glue.
For the inside:
Cut a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of Whisper White card stock. Two-step stamp the smaller butterflies using Powder Pink and Berry Burst inks. Attach insert to the inside of the card.
Stamp larger butterflies using the Rock 'n Roll technique. Ink up the image using Powder Pink ink, then tap Berry Burst ink along the edges. Stamp three butterflies and cut out using the coordinating thinlits die. Score 2 of the butterflies down the middle and pop up along the center score line of the card base using Mini Dimensionals. Attach the 3rd butterfly on the inside of the card base using Mini Dimensionals.
Done! See, lots of moving and pop up parts for my 11-month-old granddaughter. Hope it brings a smile to her and her parents!
