Interactive Cards

Sometimes it's fun to make (and receive) interactive cards ... ones that you push, pull, fold or otherwise manipulate.

As soon as I saw this particular stamp (part of the oh-so-sweet "Fox & Friends" from the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue), I thought "spinner card".

After all, what monkey can resist twirling around ... and he's just so darned cute!

I used the same layout as this card from a while back, and whipped this up in almost no time at all!

The only stumbling block was that the only circle punch that fit the monkey stamp was my largest 1-3/4" circle, so I had to drag out my new Circle Scissor Plus to make the So Saffron circle to layer it onto. I can see I need a little more practice with that gadget *g*.

The best thing about making spinner cards is they are a snap to make and then you get to play with them for half an hour afterwards!

And because I liked the monkey so much, I made this card a couple of days later. This little guy fits neatly into the 1-1/4" circle punch.

Then, I must have been on an owl-frenzy, because I found a pattern for this little guy yesterday and quickly put him together last night. Shame I couldn't find any cute socks, and had to use a pair of mens' business socks *sigh*. But they were clean!

No Stampin' Up! products used, but isn't he so cute!
