we're still celebrating interactive* cards at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ with the lovely sybrina, and you still have nearly an entire week to join us, which we hope you will! here's what i made this week:
yep, it's another shaker card. yep, it's the same colors as the last one... and it even has another blue burlap poinsettia, lol! but it's quite a different vibe, isn't it? clearly we can see i'm still obsessed with ink over torn layers, and loads of stenciled texture paste. the surprise (to me) was that i could incorporate those elements into what is otherwise a pretty "normal" xmas card. also thought it'd be fun to use the NEGATIVE space of a diecut for a shaker card... by no means a new idea, but one that i never feel like i take enough advantage of, so i did this time. go, me! :)
stephanie and sybrina also have lovely new cards to show off, won't you go and feast your eyes upon them now, darlings! ♥
*what do we mean by interactive? well, a card that does more than open and shut, really. some examples? shaker cards, slider cards, pop-ups, box or explosion cards, cards that incorporate games or puzzles, super-funky folds or... well, there are lots more ideas in the readers' gallery, and the original "shake, rattle and roll" post has some links to pinterest and tutorials!
