Hi! Lindsey here today with a fun interactive card using the cool new stamp set City Streets. I loved the little car and scooter in this set, so that took center stage on my card. I wanted the cars to be able to "drive", so let's take a closer look at how I accomplished that.
I started off with an A2 size stitched rectangle in light blue. Then, I stamped the different buildings from City Streets all over the rectangle in a blue dye ink. I set that aside and cut a large and small stitched circle, the large from grey cardstock and small from white. I stamped and colored five of the little cars in the set. After cutting the cars out with the coordinating die, I adhered them to the large grey circle which I considered the road. I stamped the greeting, scooter and dog on the small white circle. I bent the greeting to follow the line of the circle.
Once all my pieces were ready, it was time to assemble the card. I pushed a brad through the center of the circle and then through the center of the blue rectangle. This will allow the grey circle with the cars to spin. I then adhered the white circle to the top of the brad. This way, the grey circle can spin, but the white circle stays stationary. I decided that the card needed a little something extra to bring it all together, so I put a red scalloped piece of cardstock behind the blue rectangle panel. That's it!
I just love how this card turned out. I hope you'll try your own interactive card and check out this fun stamp set. Don't forget to keep checking back to the blog for more inspiration using these fun new stamp sets. Have a great day!
