Pop and Twist Card

Hello friends! 
 What are you all upto? As for me, I'm enjoying participating in a few ongoing challenges these days.
Today I'm sharing a very interesting interactive card idea known as Pop and Twist card(scroll right to the end of the post if you wish to watch the little mechanism video of today's card).

Here's the front of the card :-

Pretty clean and simple, isn't it? 

Now check out the picture below to see how it pops open :-

A closer view of each of these panels:-

All the images used on this card are from My Favorite Things stamp set- Harvest Mouse. Colouring is done using Zig cleasn color real brush pens. I LOVE how vibrant they are. 

To make the interactive element, I followed a beautiful video tutorial here -- 

I have also added some glossy accents over the apples on the front of the card. Check out the picture below to have a closer look-

Here's a small video showing the mechanism of action -

I Pick You

Hey friends!

How are you all doing? I'm sharing a cute and simple card today using My Favourite Things Stamp Set- Harvest Mouse.

To start with, I stamped the mouse and the leaves from the MFT set on Iris sg card stock. After colouring the images with Zig Clean color brush pens, I fussy cut the images and moved on to making the card base. Over a piece of standard A2 sized folded card base, I stamped a few pumpkin images from the same stamp set with the help of masking. Then I decided to make a little greenish area for the mouse to walk on and for my little scene to look complete. When I was happy with the arrangement, I mounted the mouse image using double sided foam tape and adhered the leaves here and there using white glue. Finally stamped the sentiment to go with the mood of the card scene. 
All the colouring is done using Zigs. and I added colours keeping Fall colours in mind. That's why you see some reds, yellows and browns too. 

So what do you think?  Would you pick him? :)
