Flying Fairy Tale Card

Hello again! This is Megan and I am so happy to be back on the Heffy Doodle Blog today to share a fun interactive card with you. This one has a fairy tale theme and is guaranteed to make the recipient grin from ear to ear!

It is so much fun to dream of magical things and to hope for a fairy tale ending. The fairies from the Absotoothly Awesome Stamp Set look like they couldn’t agree more. Equipped with magic wands, they are eager to make some dreams come true!

To create this card, I began by choosing images from the Absotoothly Awesome, the Fluffy Puffy Unicorns, and the Happily Ever Crafter Stamp Sets that I wanted to incorporate into my design. Using a dark brown hybrid ink, I stamped them onto Alcohol Marker Friendly Cardstock and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

To build the scene, I die cut two rectangles from Bristol Smooth Cardstock using dies from the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Die Set. I then die cut one of the rectangles using the Silver Linings Cloud Border Dies to create the foreground. I ink blended both panels with Distress Inks. For the sky, I used Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold, Picked Raspberry, and Wilted Violet. Once the sky piece was dry, I used the Starfall Stencil to emboss the background with Nuvo Moonstone Embossing Paste. For the grass, I used Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, and Bundled Sage. I then heat embossed a sentiment form the Happily Ever Crafter Stamp Set to finish off that panel.

I adhered the images to the card front using glue dots. Glue dots help to ensure the images stay put on the embossed background. Since this is an interactive card, I used 9mm Double Sided Sticky Tape on the backside of the front panel to add enough clearance for the moving parts to spin freely. I finished the design off my double matting it with coordinating and contrasting cardstock. I love how the interactive element makes the fairy at the top of the card look like she is flying by! So fun!

Thank you for visiting the Heffy Doodle Blog today! I hope that you are inspired to create an interactive card too! Have a great day!
