Samantha’s Whimsical Fox Costumes Before ‘n Afters Birthday Card!

We invite you to join us for October Inspiration Week! We will continue to highlight our Fall & Winter 2020 Release products with intro videos, Design Team samples and, of course, lots of giveaways! Join us Wednesday for our Big Giveaway post!

Samantha M joins us today to share an adorable Fox Costumes Before ‘n Afters birthday card!

This is such a fun birthday card idea! The costumed fox and little bird are so whimsical, perfect for this “extra sweet” design! Samantha included balloons from Really High Five and the little donut from Unicorn Picnic! That little donut looks so cute floating away on the balloon string!

To create this happy woodland scene, Samantha combined Lift the Flap Tree Backdrop with Stitched Hillside Borders and Grassy Border! I love how she tucked a party hat-wearing bird and the tiny sentiment behind the tree flaps!

Samantha added lots of fun texture to her design by splattering water and ink on the ink-blended die cuts! She gave the stamped images amazing color using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.

Check out the video at Samantha’s YouTube channel to see how she created this amazing card design!

Thank you so much, Samantha, for showing us super cute non-Halloween inspiration for Fox Costumes Before ‘n Afters!

Grace’s Fun Interactive Slider Cards

Just 2 more days before we kick off Fall & Winter 2020 Inspiration and Release Week! Woohoo! Join us for the Big Giveaway Post this Wednesday!

Today we have a super cute and fun interactive card design with Grace! It’s a perfectly clever way to hide a gift card or a message!

Grace made one card to conceal a gift card to send sweet thoughts to a friend and another to wish a happy birthday! Both cards feature our cute fox and bear friends! Be sure to check out the instructions in the photos at the end of this post.

For the birthday card, Grace used the Really High Five set along with A Bug Deal and Unicorn Picnic for the cute grasshopper and cake slice.

As the recipient slides the panel up the birthday greeting is revealed on the panel and underneath the flap! At the same time, the fox, bear and balloon scene stands up! Grace used acetate between the balloons to look like the confetti is floating in the air!

This sweet card features the Butterfly Kisses fox and bear! The butterflies are mounted on acetate so they can “fly” when the panel slides up!

Grace stamped a message under the place where the gift card hides! She also stamped the word “slide” from the Push Here set so the recipient knows that this is a special design!

Grace started by die cutting 2 of the largest Outside In Stitched Rectangles. With one of them, she laid it landscape and cut the largest Lift the Flap in the center, then she scored the flap as in the photo. She cut a tab in the top using the Let’s Toast Pull Tab Add-On.

Grace turned the second panel to portrait orientation and cut it to 3 1/4″.

To attach the sliding panel, Grace added 1/4″ double-sided tape just below the bottom scored line. Then she put foam tape around the flap to attach to the card base.

Thank you so much for sharing this your brilliant design with us today, Grace!
