Oh Sheep!

Need a card to make someone smile? Today we are sharing an adorable card with a surprise moving element by Tatiana that is perfect for sending smiles!

Her card features a trio of adorable sheep from from our Baa Stamp Set. Tatiana colored the sheep using copic markers and a fun dotted coloring technique to give them a fun fuzzy look! She cut the images out using the coordinating Baa Die Set. For the scene, she used our Land Borders Die Set for the hills and grass and our Petite Clouds Stencil to add clouds to the sky with white texture paste. She also added a sunshine in the corner using our Sky Scene Builders Die Set. So adorable! In the center she added two hay bales from our Moo Stamp Set

Here is the extra bit of fun - the sheep on the top actually leaps back and forth over the hay bales from left (photo above) to right (photo below)!

How to create this card:

Below we have some instructions from Tatiana on how she created the interactive element for this card:

  • I trimmed a piece of clear acetate and punched a whole towards the bottom. I slightly rounded the bottom corners with scissors. 
  • Then I adhered a small "spin and slider disk” (I used My Favorite Things brand) to the background. The disk can be easily replaced with a round 3D foam piece. 
  • I let the glue dry, inserted the acetate piece through the hole and fixed the mechanism with a small paper circle glued to the disk. The bottom part of the slider element was hid under the hay bales. 
  • The sheep was popped toward the top part of the acetate on a foam tape.

Here is another look at the card. What a fun way to add an extra special element to a card by creating a piece that moves! The recipient is sure to have fun sliding the sheep back and forth!
