C4C – A Birthday card with Numbers

Everyone who knows me, knows I love interactive cards.  For this card I chose Karen Burniston’s 1042 – 1042 – Spinner Square Pop Up

 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.

The Steps:

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

That’s it!

Here’s a video of how the pop up mechanism works.

his is a die set from Karen Burniston and is fast becoming my favorite!  Why, because it can be any theme you can imagine!  Plus.  It’s an interactive card that has a surprise that pops up when the receiver opens it.

There is an assembly video by Karen.  If you want to buy this set for yourself then I really recommend that you watch the video at least the first time you use it.  The mechanism that makes the card interactive can be tricky and you’ll never figure it out by yourself.  Here’s the link:  1042 – Spinner Square Pop Up

I adore the paper packs from Moda Scrap called “Thinking About Polinesia” for Elizabeth Craft Designs.  I am also crazy  for polka dots!

I used this adorable stamp set from Lawn Fawn called On The Mend  .  I stamped the Band Aid, Soup bowl/spoon and Turtle on white cardstock.  I colored them and fussy cut.  The Tissue Box and little bug, and sentiment “sorry you caught a bug” and “feel better” was also from the same set.

The Daisies are from a die set from DoCrafts called “Glorious Gerbera” I cut the daisy on the right middle which is the second to the smallest twice for each daisy and the yellow center of the daisy from the little circle once for each daisy.
