Winter Interactive Cards - Sliding and Floating Stamped Images

Tuesday, June 15, 2021

It's good to finally have the time to make this post - introducing, my interactive winter-themed cards for this year! I got these cute stamp set after winter last year and I had to wait almost a whole year to finally use them. 

This year, the cold came really early. In fact, we hardly complained about the heat during summer either. It's a comparatively colder year in 2021. As early as the last weeks of May, I was already brainstorming and voila!

Winter interactive card ideas
Foxy on his sled on a couple of cards (using slider technique) and Twinnie Penguins bobbing on another card (using floating image technique by Jennifer McGuire).

The stamp set features a fox on a sled, a penguin with scarf and some really nice sentiments. They make cold look cute.

But unlike Elsa though, I don't like the cold, it bothers me a lot hahaha. Still, I find winter to be a beautiful season with it's glistening snow and tinkling icicles. I wish I was more like cute Foxy and Penguin so I could enjoy the snow too!

I looked at my stash to see how I can make these cards. You see, I try to limit my craft supplies spending now. Whenever I have a project in mind, I make sure that I can do it with what I have on hand.

Creating a snowy background cardmaking

Fortunately, I have 3 shades of blue inks and my ever handy brush makeup applicator to create the background. Then, using white poster paint ($2 from Kmart) and a fine point paint brush, I added the snowfall effect. Just looking at the background already makes me shiver in cold! ⛄

I can't not use cute Penguin either. With one of its feet in the air, it looks like it's dancing so why not make 2 cute dancing Penguins on the snow? 

To make them "dance," I used the floating image technique by Jennifer McGuire

Here they are, dancing with their Happy Feet!

Winter has just started and God willing, I will come up with more winter-themed cards to make while the snowy season lasts. 😄Happy winter!
