Interactive barn card tutorial

Interactive barn card tutorial.

Hello again! Today I’m sharing a cute interactive Birthday card featuring the Barn Die-namics, that I was dying to use. I filmed the process and the step by step tutorial is up on the MFT Stamps YouTube channel.

When we rotate the disk to the right, prompted by the little black arrow from the Interactive Labels set, three things happen…

The chicken with the balloons flies away, the little pig in the window is substituted by a Birthday cake and a cute horse appears and disappears behind the open doors.

I wasn’t able to create a gif of the card, but here’s a little video clip of it in action:


Isn’t that fun? Head on to the MFT Stamps YouTube channel to watch the tutorial now or keep reading for more information about the card…

The barn window is the perfect size for the Peek-a-Boo Wheel Die-namics and the Party Animals stamp set has so many cute images, that you could fill the whole disk and just make a regular version of the rotating disk card.

My very first card as a collaborator on the MFT YouTube channel was also an interactive rotating wheel card, actually two, that you can watch HERE. I’ve used this simple mechanism many times… HERE’s another interactive card with unicorns and an appearing-disappearing rainbow, that you might have missed.
