I'll Take "Interactive Cards" for $500, Alex

Ha, feeling punchy here, but just had to try the interactive card challenge at Papertrey Ink today... for the chance to win a $500 gift certificate and a set of the new interactive dies and the stamp sets introduced today!

I made a card very similar to this one, seen HERE.(My "go-to" interactive design, as they are not my forte)!  It was a hit for my niece's birthday, so decided to make another one to have on hand.


This card is like a PTI Die Bonanza!  Used the Seed Packet die for the pocket, and tucked a button card inside.  On top, I made felt flowers with Beautiful Blooms II #2 and the Buttoned Up button dies.  The Tiny Tag is stamped with a sentiment from Tranquility Trilogy.  Where is the interactive part?



Going up!


The button card was stamped with a pattern from Background Basics:  Retro on the bottom, a sentiment from Script Sentiments, and then Waltzingmouse Stamps "happy birthday" from Say It Loud added underneath.

Such a fun card to make...and to give!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Tranquility Trilogy, Background Basics: Retro, Script Sentiments from Papertrey Ink, and Say It Loud, Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  PTI Vintage Cream, Aqua Mist, White, October Afternoon Sidewalks Collection, miscellaneous paper scraps for buttons
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black & A Muse Studio Orange and Ocean
Dies: all from PTI:  Button Card, Seed Packet, Buttoned Up #1 & #2, Beautiful Blooms II #2, Large Scalloped Border, Tiny Tags
Other:  PTI felt in Harvest Gold, Vintage Cream, Simply Chartreuse; Lemon Tart and Aqua Mist buttons, twine, gingham ribbon, cotton fabric

I love the look of interactive cards, but, like you, they are not my thing as well. I totally think I would use the spinner dies if I could get them though! I love this! The flowers are gorgeous and I love the color combo and patterns. Do you have Rosie Posie?

Beautiful card, Kelly. The colors are perfect and the flowers are adorable. I think that the interactive dies are cool although not for me. I have a hard enough time sitting down long enough to make a card let alone one that is a bit more complicated...they are nice though.

Interactive is usually too "busy" for me ..... but this is beautiful! Love the color combinations (especially the orange gingham!)
