Foiled Interactive Card


Hello crafters! Today I bring you the second card that I was talking about in the previous post. This one has it all, lol!! On the one hand, the very mechanism makes it pop-up when we open it; on the pother hand, it remains standing up to be exposed thanks to its platform.


The card mechanism is from Lawn Fawn and the set has been designed to assemble the card from start to finish. The assembly itself is quite simple, although you can see it in the tutorial that I uploaded to my YouTube channel. Also, I used papers from one of

the Lawn Fawn's collections that matched perfectly with the color of the cardstock I used as my base. Here is the link to the brand's page so that you can see the dies and the name of the die set (most of the best-known Spanish online stores have it).


For me, the special touch is given by the butterflies by Pinkfresh Studio, printed with foil and colored with their system of layering stencils and Tim Holtz's Oxide inks. I think the foil by Spellbinders in Prism color that I used for the occasion is perfect: it doesn't stand out too much nor goes unnoticed; it adds the perfect shine and, being a holographic silver shade, it matches with anything.


Perhaps the point of this card is that the butterflies seem to be really flying, floating in the air. To achieve that, I simply cut some acetate strips (guides) that I adhered to the different bases offered by the platform, similar to those of shadow boxes.

Finally, I die cut a circle of acetate on which I adhered some clouds and the "happy birthday" (also by Pinskfresh Studio), which I also foiled in the same tone of foil as the butterflies.


So, I encourage you to see the tutorial to accompany me in the process of this card and you learn how to assemble Lawn Fawn's pop-up platform. Kisses and see you in the next post!
