Simon Says..........Interactive

Happy Wednesday - welcome to our challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!


Our theme this week is "Interactive" and we're showcasing Lawn Fawn products.  We'd love to see you using their products, too, but it's not a requirement to play along, as long as you follow our theme.

I found a technique called a Hinged Card.  And since it's September and I'm in fall mode, here's what I did:

supplies: kraft card base, various fall patterned papers, Lawn Fawn Our Friendship Grows sunflowers and leaves, Simon's Script Thanks die and (inside) sentiment from Autumn Blessings, brad as a hinge

I used a brad through the gold flower to hold the top 2 panels together. The very top panel swivels upwards and to the left to reveal the hidden stamped sentiment at the top right (see below).  The top panel is not attached to the card base, only to the center panel and the gold flower, and the center panel is attached on the right, bottom and partially on the left to the card base. 

Here's how the card looks when the top of the hinge slides upwards:

Now it's your turn!  We have a $50.00 gift certificate

Hi Lin,
I just adore this card. The cheerful fall colors and those cute flowers are perfect for such a fun technique. I am not much for interactive cards, but this is such a great one that I was inspired to give it a try. Thank you for a wonderful inspiration piece and the fun of attempting a new technique. It's been a great way to spend part the unexpected day off that was granted by TD Imelda's visit. The sun is out now, and I am glad to be crafting!

Beautiful, Lin. I LOVE that pop of aqua. What a clever interactive card you made this week. I never would have thought of something like this. =)

This is a simple, yet very clever and effective mechanism. Your craftsmanship is amazing. Blessings!
