Good morning, Jess here with a card featuring my new favorite Lawn Fawn stamp set, Lovable Legends! I can't stop playing with these stamps...Nessie and the Kraken are SO cute!! A few days ago I was looking at the stamp set and thought it'd be fun to make an interactive "spinning" card with the Kraken! I decided to make a birthday card to celebrate Lawn Fawn's 6th birthday!
Then I used the Ocean Waves border dies to die-cut several blue patterned papers from Lawn Fawn to create depth in my ocean. I stamped the sentiment onto the darkest paper and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. I used a spinner die to create my wavy track but you could use a craft knife to cut that shape. I carefully bent the paper slightly so that I could insert the spinning Kraken and then used (cough) six layers of foam tape to put my card together. The dark blue sky and light blue polka dot layer are adhered together with regular adhesive. Then there is a double layer of foam tape adhering the diagonal polka dot layer which allows room for the back of the spinning element. There are four layers of foam tape adhering the dark blue checkerboard paper to the card which allows the front of the spinning Kraken to move freely (the googly eyes and foam mounting dot adds thickness to the front of the spinning Kraken).
Thanks so much for visiting today and I hope this card inspires you to give interactive cards a try! Have a fabulous Monday!
