Interactive Invitation

Its Tuesday so that can only mean one thing!!! A new Digi-choosday challenge and discount code. Hop over to Polkadoodles Digi-Chooseday Challenge Blog to claim yours and enter.

The Design Teams brief was an invitation to Thanksgiving or Christmas that is Interactive.

I wanted to create something a little different I did contemplate just making a shaker but then I quite like the idea of revealing the date. I think it works really well. I wanted to step away from the tradition Christmas colours as well.

Cardmaking Tutorial

To begin I sized and printed my image and the words you are invited, onto smooth card stock suitable for alcohol markers.
I then printed the same image with the date and time in the snowball on normal printed paper.

I coloured the original image and die cut with a stitched rectangle 


Using the rust card and a largest stitched rectangle die I cut a another rectangle


Using a craft knife I cut the snowball from the image


With my largest rectangle die I cut a piece of white card, and positioned my pull tab insert and a stitched star die


With the smaller stars I cut a number of rust and a number of rose gold stars


The image that had been printed with the date and time was mounted onto the rust rectangle and adhered to the white card with double sided tape.
The coloured image was then lined up over the top so the information could be seen through the cutout snowball

The slit was die cut in 

A piece of acetate was glued over the inside of the star.

The pull tab was secured. Foam tape was place around the edges of the star and it was filled with silver sequins

A piece of rose gold card was adhered to the back of this to secure the shaker element.

Foam tape was run around the edges and this was adhered to the blue a4 card to form a card base

The die cut stars were added around the edges

Then silvers sequins and nuvo drops were spotted around 

The pull tab was was accessorised with the rust card.

This card was very time consuming and one of those that you end up doing numerous times, I had the pull tab too high, then too low, then glued the acetate onto the wrong side.
But I am so glad I persevered as I really do love the finished product.

This is being entered into the following challenges

Interactive Christmas

This stamp and die set from Time for Tea Designs is so fun, with the naughty fury friends trashing the tree. We use to have a beagle, she was the most beautiful dog I have ever come across, but was totally bonkers and so so naughty I could tell you many tales. Including how she learnt to open the grill door so she could use it as step to climb onto the work surfaces and ate an entire slow cooker full of lamb stew...
Christmas with Indiana was a nightmare she was THIS dog. We use to put bells on the bottom of the tree so they acted like an early warning system and alerted us to her mischief before too much damage was caused. Even as a tiny puppy at Christmas last year Hamish our Jack Russel did not have the interest in the tree that Indie never grew out of




When we visit a special place I buy a bauble as I love putting the tree up and it reminding me of the trip.  We can be like 'oh do you remember that trip to...' 
Well my inspiration for this card came from Indie, on one particular tree mounting occurrence my husband literally threw himself across the room and caught our bauble from New York (that could have been costly). There were decorations flying in all directions but he saved the ones that mattered.

Card Making Tutorial

To begin I stamped, coloured and die cut the images. The die set has a die you can lay on the tree to.cut the head and arm holes of the furry beast.

Using the large stitched rectangle from the mama elephant die set I.cut a.piece of white card stock. I used the heffy doodle pull tab dies to form the panel.for my pull tab base. See the picture below for placement

This was blended in Fired brick distress ink

The pull tab was inserted and I felt it would be too heavy for just the one circle to mount onto. I therefore cut another and used double.sided tape to attached them both together to form one pull tab. See the picture below

The top one was coloured in the fired brick to ensure that it blended in if seen


Using acatate the free falling baubles and the dog were attached to the mechanism. The tree was then secured onto card base with foam tape to allow a gap

The pull tab arrow was blended in the distress ink

The sentiment was heat embossed using Wow Earthtone Grape Embossing Powder  and this was blended in mowed lawn. A cormer trimmer was used to.round the edges

This was attached to the card panel which was adhered to a card base using double sided tape

The card was finished with nuvo drops

Interactive Gnomes

I purchased this pull tab die on a whim. It looked good but I am not sure I would use it. It frightened me a little and looked complicated. I was very wrong it was just so so easy.
