I am absolutely delighted and excited to be here today sharing with you my card for Gallery Idol Round 5! I still can't believe that I made it to the Top 5! Thank you so much for your votes and encouragement!
The challenge this round was to make an interactive card! I love interactive cards, they are so fun to make and the recipient always loves them! I thought and thought and came up with my idea and actually my card is not only interactive in one way but in two! First I came up with the idea to make it a scratch off card. And once I came up with that idea I than thought to make it a confetti shaker too! Here is the card when scratched:
And here is a photo before and a few others:
The scratch off was so fun to make! I made the confetti with a 3 whole punch again! For the shaker I sewed a thin acetate onto the kraft card, I actually cut a clear envelope and used that! I sewed three sides and than added the confetti right before sewing it shut, I was worried I would sew confetti! For the die cut I stamped the ice cream cone coloring it with markers first and than colored it in with pencils. Stamped the sentiment over top and than made it a scratch off! For the scratch off I used 2 parts paint and 1 part dishsoap! I actually made a quick video sharing how I did it!
Please ignore my scratchy voice the only good time to video is when the kids are in bed! And I've been having vocal problems again especially at night!
