Everyone who knows me, knows I love interactive cards. For this card I chose Karen Burniston’s 1042 – 1042 – Spinner Square Pop Up
This die set is so versatile. It can be used for almost any theme you want. I always recommend that you watch Karen’s: Spinner Square Pop Up assembly video It will really help you make the “spinner mechanism” work properly the very first time.
Step 1: I chose a digital designer paper from a shop on Etsy called “The Digi Rainbow” that’s called 100 Number Digital Papers. Yes, there are 100 different colors of this same paper that’s included in the Sale price of $1.40 for all of the colors! What? I used this blue one for the front, the inside left, and the back of the card.
Step 2: I stenciled some clouds on the right inside as well as some die cut clouds from a set that has been discontinued.
Step 3: I stamped and colored with Copic Markers this stamp from Art Impressions:
Once colored, I fussy cut the “couple flying in the plane” to spin up on the square when the card is opened.
Step 4: On my computer I created the two sentiments that is a quote from Abraham Lincoln! (“It’s not the years in your life, it’s the life in your years”)
Step 5: The “Happy Birthday” sentiment on the front is: 783 – Happy Birthday
