Now I confess I have had terrible luck with interactive cards. They simply do not WORK for me --- either they get stuck or they fall apart or... I suspect my klutzy fingers have a lot to do with this. But I decided to try anyway, and this card likely will not last past the first attempt to work it. Still...
I started with a series of templates for a "Waving Arm Card" by Sara Sandburg at www.cardmakingparadise.com. My first step was to cut out the pieces and assemble them as the basic card:
Since I was using brushed metallic card, I decided to go industrial and embossed the lower right with a Sizzix thinlits die and a Spellbinders embossing pad. I rubbed Distress Crayon over it to bring out the gears (didn't work really well through).
Next was embellishing the card with more gears, using more brushed metallic card in a lighter copper color:
Spin the wheel on the right clockwise and here is what happens:
- use stronger card (or even stencil mylar) for the workings and card base
- use stronger tape
- and don't ever do this again! LOL
Products used in the making of this card were:
- Dies: Sizzix Thinlits "Gearhead" (6621184) and "Adventure" (660224); Sizzix BIGZ "Gadget Gears #2" (661193)
- Papers: pre-folded burgundy card base, cut to 5 x 5; scraps of brushed copper and brushed light copper card from Stampin' Up! and gloss white card
- Adhesives: redine 1/8" Embossing Tape; Simon Says Stamp Craft Tacky Glue
