Papertry February Blog Hop Challenge

Our challenge for Papertrey Ink's Blog Hop this month: ". . .it's all about being interactive! Show us how you take your cards to the next level, whether you have received your Movers & Shakers dies, or you're just inspired to create a pop up or swinging card without them". My most favorite interactive card for many years now has been this one from a 2005 SCS post here! I just love that it's invitation size card doesn't take up a lot of space, but once opened up, it stands perfectly flat on its base and isn't going to be always falling down or easily knocked over by a breeze or an elbow.  That's why it's an awesome get well card for either a hospitalized or home bound patient, child through adult -- sure to bring a smile when they open it and each time they see it sitting up so beautifully thereafter! Of course it's also perfect for any/every other occasion too! Keep it clean & simple for this one though, as you can't close it with a lot of bulky embellishments -- my photo below shows it in its closed position, ready for an A2 envelope!

Great card! I gave this same type of card a try this time. So fun & I love making tags so it's perfect for that.

Wow, the purple flowers on the purple looks great! And I love that this neat 3D card can also be folded flat to mail or store, very cool!

Rebecca said...

Wow is that interactive. When it's folded you have no idea that it will open up that way. Nice card!

Sue Lelli said...

WOW! LOVE this both closed and open! What a FUN card!

Love this style card. Good job with yours! I didn't know it was from SU. Whoever came up with it is very clever : ) I did one last month for a PTI challenge: http://www.notablenest.blogspot.com/2012/01/papertrey-january-blog-hop-challenge.html
