Interactive polar bear card tutorial

Interactive polar bear card tutorial for MFT.

Hi! I’m back with a fun interactive polar bear card tutorial for the MFT YouTube Channel! Before I tell you more about it, let’s check it out in action in the video clip below.

When we pull on the tab, the sweet polar bear, from the SY Polar Opposites set, waves its arm. He’s surrounded by some adorable penguins from the same set.

In the tutorial I’ll show you an easy and effective way to do precision partial stamping (to separate the bear’s arm from its body). For the mechanism I chose the Twist & Turn Interactive Die-namics. It’s a versatile linkage mechanism that you’ve seen me use many times.  For example in THIS card with a fishing bear.

I stamped the images with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink and colored them with the following Copic markers: E53, E51, E50, BG18, BG15, BG13, BG23, W10, W7, W5, R01, R00, YR68, YR65 and YR61.
