Mini slimline box card with rocking boat

Nautical slimline box card with rocking boat for MFT.

Hello there! It’s time for my monthly interactive card tutorial on the MFT YouTube Channel, where I’m sharing a nautical mini slimline box card with a rocking boat.

The cute piggies are from the YUZU Pig Time Fun set, while the boat and fishes are from the Ride or Dive set. I stamped them with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink and colored them with the following Copic markers:

  • Pig skin: R02, R01, R00, E04
  • Red elements: R29, R27, R24, R22
  • Blue elements: B05, B04, B02, B000
  • Seagulls: W7, W5, W3, W1, W00, YR68, YR65
  • Boat: E37, E35, E33, W3
  • Fishes: B000, W1

Before I tell you more about the card let’s check out that rocking boat in action!

As you can see, to activate the movement, I’ve added a mechanism with a little pull tab, cut with dies from the Twist & Turn Interactive Die-namics. It hardly adds any bulk to the card, which still fits perfectly inside of a mini slimline envelope. Did you notice that there was a little surprise character behind captain piggy? What would a sea themed card be without a seagull?

The beautiful patterned paper is from the Stars & Stripes Paper Pad. To make the sentiment stand out against it, I cut a 4 5/16″ x 11/16″ (11cm x 1,7cm) strip of Red Hot Card Stock for it.
