One of the things that Lori does best is create fun interactive cards and I have found that I love making them! So today I am going to show you a brand new interactive card in the store called the Penny Slider Card Circle. I also needed to have a special envelope to put it in because of the weight and height so I also cut out the Sliding Box for it. The box that I selected was actually not large enough, but I was able to enlarge it and you can see the tutorial on how I did that here, on Lori Whitlock's blog.
The card was a lot of fun to make and I can see all kinds of potential for this one. The directions and tips that Lori gives on her YouTube video are definitely worth watching. You can see it here. I used some fun paper, chipboard and sticker gears and brads from Lori’s All About A Boy paper collection for Echo Park.
When you swing the card around the penny makes the little gear more in a circle and around the card at the same time. Pretty cool, huh? Here’s a closeup. I used a Papertrey Ink stamp for the center image. I loved how the little 3D star embellishment fit right inside the middle.
The slider box is going to see a lot of use in the future. This box can be used with or without the inside box. It’s fun to decorate and I love the bracket shape on the front flap. I created a mat for the flap by using the Internal Offset feature and also enlarged the file to fit my card. The chipboard gear and sticker ribbon on the front is acting as my closure. I attached it to the box with some foam adhesive and then attached the smaller circle and brad on the bottom part of the box, then wrapped a cotton string, up and around both pieces to hold it closed.
Here is a closeup of the card in the sliding part of the box. You can see how the foam adhesive under the blue circle helps to lift it up so that the pennies can slide underneath it.
I hope you have enjoyed my project today. Be sure to check out the other slider card, Penny Slider Card Straight, as well as the some of the other interactive cards in Lori’s shop!
