Hi!

First, I hope you are doing well in these difficult times. It’s been a while since I posted a card but, lately, I’ve been lacking inspiration, and honestly, I didn’t feel like crafting. But now I feel great again, and I’m back to crafting and sharing my projects!

Recently I’ve been reading some books and watching videos on pop-up books and paper engineering, and I wanted to use some of the mechanisms on my cards. The one I used on this card is well known, and there are several companies offering dies to make wiper cards, but generally, they are not used on the inside of the card. So I had this idea, and I decided to use some Hello Sweetums products to make this card.

I love the images on this stamp set. The monkeys are so cute, and the stamp set includes some great accessories to use with them. The outside of my card is quite simple: I used some yellow dotted pattern paper, die-cut a circular window, and framed it with some leaves. I love the monkey peeking through the window! The first part of the sentiment is white embossed on a strip of black cardstock.

For this kind of card, you need some border to hide the moving parts. In this case, I wanted the monkeys to peek from the upper and the lower part, so I made a leafy border using Twisted Citron Distress ink and a stencil, and a bushy border using a die and inking the piece with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn. In the latter, I splattered some ink with a paintbrush to add more interest and glued the rest of the sentiment for which I had die-cut the letters and inked them in a yellow gradient.

Here you have a short video of the card to watch how the mechanism works:

I love how this card turned out! It was quite hard to make because I had no intuition with this mechanism, but I will use it on more cards to learn how to use it better. I hope you like it too!

Thank you very much for stopping by! Take care!
