Hello again! It’s time to celebrate the MFT June Release, which is already available in the MFT Boutique, and I’m doing it with a fun interactive shark card, created with a mixture of new products and older favorites.
If you’re into moveable cards like me, you’ve probably guessed that I used a simple double slider mechanism for this card.
I started by stamping the sea creatures from the Best Fins stamp set, masking them and doing some ink blending on my 4 1/2″ x 8″ panel (11,4cm x 20,3cm) of Copic friendly card stock with Cornflower and Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Inks. To give the background some texture, I spritzed it with water and diluted ink.
Once it was dry, I used the smaller die from the Double Slider Loop Slots Die-namics, to cut some slots for my cellophane strip. I then adhered the pull tab from the Interactive Pull Tabs Die-namics to the back of it and the shark to the front.
Next I prepared the 4 1/2″ x 3 3/4 sand mound (11,4cm x 9,7cm) layer to cover the mechanism. I could have made it even higher to completely hide the shark, but sometimes the best hiding places are in plain sight. Actually, my idea was to camouflage the visible part of it with sea grass, shells and fish, but I read that shark skin repels barnacles and other parasitic organisms… Fascinating stuff!
For such a large card, I went with a larger sentiment, from the beautiful Heap of Hellos stamp set. And that’s all that I can tell you about my card. If anyone needs the list of Copic markers that I used for my coloring, just let me know in the comments. Thank you for your visit! Happy shopping!
