DIY Interactive A2 Card

Hi crafty friends,

Welcome back to my blog!

Today, I am sharing a DIY interactive A2 Card that was totally inspired by Jennifer Maguire in one of her a recent live videos. Make sure you go over to see it on her You Tube channel. I loved the idea so much, that I contacted her to ask if I could use her idea to make a card. She said 'sure!'....Yay!

There's a few different steps for this design and I filmed the process because that is the best way to see this card come together. The reel will be available on Instagram @pinkfreshstudio so keep an eye out for it.

You begin by making your own interactive element which is basically a piece of quality cardstock cut 1 1/2" x 4" scored at 1", 2" and 3". Then you bend at the score marks. 

For this top folding card, I added some Pinkfresh Studio paper to the front. This just added some subtle interest.  

Using the Nested Circles Dies, I cut through the the front of the card approximately 2" from the top fold. I then attached the DIY interactive element with double sided sticky tape to the the card itself. 

After stamping that wonderful sentiment from the Around the Shape Circle Stamp Set, I cut out the circle with the coordinating die and attached this circle to the front panel attached to the element. 

I then cut out some gorgeous elements from the Artistic Magnolia Washi Tape. These are sooooo pretty. I attached a number of these flowers around my card, inside and out!

To finish, I added some Gold Pearls to highlight the gold in the washi tape.

Pink and gold always looks to good together, don't you think? 

Such an interesting design. I liked that when you opened the card, it still has a bunch of flowers inside the card itself. 

Remember to look for the reel on Instagram @ Pinkfresh Studio because it will help to see it, especially if you want to try this yourself. Also, if you want to find so much more inspiration why not come and follow me on Instagram too @cherylespiecreates

Well, that's all from me today friends.

Until next time...
