Yay, today I’m celebrating the MFT August Vault Release with an interactive spinner slider card featuring hedgehogs.
As soon as I saw the BB Happy Hedgehogs set I knew that I wanted to create this type of card. But before I go into more details, let’s check it out in action in the video clip below.
The mechanism is a hybrid between the “sliding pull tab spinner” that I saw on the Square Type YouTube Channel, which I highly recommend, and my dear teammate Karolyn Loncon’s awesome Spinning record player card. If you are interested, HERE you can check out my tutorial for a similar card with a cartwheeling gnome that I made last year.
This time I actually wanted to make a slimline card, but I made the pulltab too sturdy (using 4 layers of cardstock) and the Spin & Slide Disc that I used wasn’t thick enough. However, the A2 format is actually easier to decorate so I wasn’t too upset about it.
List of inks used for interactive card featuring hedgehogs
For the ink blending I used the same Premium Dye Inks as in yesterday’s card: Jalapeño Popper, Prickly Pear, Butterscotch, Candied Yam, Fire Coral and Moroccan Spice. I ink blended the grass twice. First on my A2 panel, which I later die cut with the largest die from the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 Die-namics, and then on a separate panel.
I ran it through my die cutting machine, first with a die from the Slimline Grassy Hills Die-namics and the largest die from the Spin & Slide Channels Die-namics and then with the largest die from the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 Die-namics.
The pull tab is from the Interactive Up & Down Die-namics. I used two layers to make it sturdy enough. I also used some clear thread for the mechanism, which you barely can see in the above picture.
