Today I wanted to make an interactive Valentine’s Day card. I do love shaped cards and don’t feel that I make enough of them.
To make the card:
I first prepared a few elements before putting the card together. I die cut a 5 inch diameter circle from 110 lb Neenah solar white cardstock, which I scored in one direction in the middle to form my card base, and a 4.5 inch diameter circle from Lawn Fawn speckled paper.
I stamped the cute monster from the Monster Love stamp set onto Neenah 110 lb solar white cardstock, die cut him with the Monster Love die set, copic colored with and put a few white gel pen highlights on him. I then took a 4 inch die cut circle of 110 Neenah solar white cardstock and ink blended Distress oxide inks milled lavender, seedless preserves & dusty concord with a blender buddy over the Heartburst Layering Stencil. I die cut hearts from the Slimline Card Series: Frame and Fold Die Set out of lavender cardstock and a large heart out of gold cardstock. I stamped sentiments from the Monster Love stamp set into the smaller hearts. I adhered all the hearts onto the stenciled cardstock.
To put together the card, I punched a hole (in the middle) of the Lawn Fawn Speckled circle, 2 smaller circles of cardstock and into the middle of the stencil cardstock. I adhered the Lawn Fawn Speckled circle on to the card base (only the lower half of the cardstock is adhered). To make the middle circle into a spinner, I put a brad through a smaller circle, then the stenciled cardstock, then the other smaller circle and then the Lawn Fawn speckled circle. Double sided foam adhered the monster to the outer smaller circle and the inner smaller circle to the Speckled paper. This gave free range motion to the inner stenciled circle with the sentiments.
