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?
That’s all for today! Thanks for your visit and don’t forget to check out the TUTORIAL!
