Mimi joins us today to inspire us with her adorable Build-A-Gumball Machine card! It’s a double interactive card featuring a shaker and Reveal Wheel, so fun!

Mimi cut the gumball machine base 3 times from 110 lb. white cardstock to build up layers for the shaker in the globe. She sandwiched an acetate piece between the 1st and second layer to create the shaker filled with gumballs. And then she colored the pieces of the machine with Distress Oxide ink in Kitsch Flamingo and cut the detail pieces from silver metallic cardstock.

For the Reveal Wheel she adjusted die cut to fit with the gumball dispenser. She colored the wheel piece with a gray marker before adding the gumballs. Then she assembled everything, using a Small Mini Slimline rectangle to ground the little scene and to stamp the sentiment from Sweet Smiles!

I love how Mimi stacked the cute Treat Cart critters so they can reach the coin slot! The coins are so cute in gold metallic cardstock!

This card is so much fun and so clever! Thank you for sharing with us today, Mimi!


Thanks so much for visiting, have an amazing day!
