Hello, Connie Nichol here today with an interactive card featuring Uchi’s Design animation stamps, Elizabeth Craft Designs dies and Ranger Distress Oxide inks. How fun is it to have a flying butterfly card?
I designed this card around these very cool animated stamps from Uchi’s Design. Basically you stamp the image, place the animation grid over top and when the grid moves, your stamped image comes to life.
To make my card, I began by stamping the biggest butterfly onto a piece of white cardstock and adding a pull tab.
I then used Elizabeth Craft Designs stitched square dies to create a square frame for my butterfly. You want the frame to be slightly larger than your stamped butterfly so that it will create a pocket.
I sponged some distress oxide ink onto the frame and misted with water, then adhered the animation grid to the frame.
I adhered three sides of this square to the card base to create a pocket to slip my stamped butterfly into. I coloured the card base with more Faded Denim distress oxide ink and decorated with several Elizabeth Crafts Designs dies (Dandelion Fluff and the Happy from Happy Birthday) which were sponged with more ink. I love the way this card turned out. The Distress Oxide inks make such a beautiful background and the animated butterflies make the card very unique. I had a lot of fun making this card and I’m sure my dad enjoyed it very much.
Supplies Used: white cardstock, Elizabeth Craft Designs dies, Ranger Industries ink and sponge applicator, Uchi’s Designs animated butterfly stamps, Kaisercraft pearls, May Arts ribbon, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
