Interactive twinkling card for the September Card Kit Release

Interactive twinkling card for MFT.

Yay! It’s time for the September Card Kit Release which means that the Starry Night Card Kit and a bunch of other products are now available in the MFT Boutique. I’m celebrating with an interactive twinkling card!

When the wheel rotates, the stars seem to twinkle. It’s really difficult to capture the small “twinkling” stars on camera, so this is definitely one of those cards that looks better in hand, but nevertheless here’s a little animated gif so that you get the idea:

It’s such an easy card to make! I die cut the wheel from the Peek-A-Boo Wheel Die-namics set in black and used a silver marker to paint random spots all over it. The contrast between the dark background and the bright silver is what makes it work.

A couple of months ago, I actually used this same idea to make THIS slider card in which stars are illuminated. I call it a “low-cost Chibitronics” effect. 😉

I once again used the Night Sky Color Burst Trio to create the background. Once it was dry, I went over it with some dark Distress Inks, to make it even darker…

I silver embossed one of the sentiments from the Starry Night Sentiments and added some glitter stars cut with our Free with the August Kit product: Starburst Sentiment Strips Die-namics.

That’s all for today! Head on to the MFT Blog for more inspiration from the DT and to the MFT Boutique for some shopping, because the Starry Night Card Kit is available as of NOW!
