Hi!

Today I’m sharing another card with kissing animals 🙂 This time I used the super cute seals from Lawn Fawn “Sealed with a Kiss” stamp set. I made this card to test an idea for a pull tab card I had when I made the kissing hedgehogs card.

I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink. The ice piece is from Lawn Fawn “Critters in the Arctic” stamp set and the pile of presents is from “Toboggan together” stamp set. I colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut everything.

I used Lawn Fawn “Outside in Stitched Rectangle Stackables” to die cut a piece of bristol paper and then run it through my Big Shot again using “Stitched Hillside Borders” dies. I also used Lawn Fawn “Forest Border” die on a piece of green cardstock to have a nice tree line behind the snowy hill. Next, I inked the piece that was going to be the sky with Fossilized Amber, Scattered Straw and Tumbled Glass Distress inks. Then, I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx black ink.

I used Waffle Flower “Pull Tab” dies to make the mechanism. I wanted the seal on the left side to move towards the other seal and, at the same time, the speech bubble to appear from behind the seal on the right. I added a step-by-step photo tutorial to the end of this post!

Then, I adhered a panel of paper from Lawn Fawn “Perfectly Plaid Chill” collection to a card base and glued all the elements. I added a stripe of vellum I had die cut using Mama Elephant “Ocean Waves Trio” dies and inked with Salty Ocean Distress ink. That way the pull tab track is a little bit hidden.

Tutorial

You’ll need the elements on the picture: a cardstock panel, like this hillside one, with the track for the pull tab die cut; the pull tab with the small rectangular piece to make it work (kraft cardstock in the picture); an acetate strip with a slot (black cardstock in the picture); two brads. I used Waffle Flower “Pull Tabs” dies and Lawn Fawn “Slide on over” dies.

Pierce three holes. First one in the end of the black strip, the second one in the pull tab and the third one in the panel. You should determine where to pierce these holes to adapt the mechanism to your scene.

Fix the black strip to the front side of the pull tab with a brad.

Flip your panel and feed the black strip through the pull tab track. Then, insert a brad through the slot and the hole in the hillside panel. Next, feed the two small flaps of the pull tab through the track and glue the small rectangular piece to hold the pull tab.

This is how the front and the back side should look like. I added a strip of cardstock on the end of the backside to guide the pull tab.

Now, when you pull, the tab moves to the right moving the black strip which is fixed to it with the brad. As it moves to the right the stripe rotates counterclockwise around that brad because it is forced to slide its slot around the brad. And that is how this cute coupple kisses! 🙂

This is option number two: the black stripe is hidden behind the panel and emerges from there.

Choose one option or another depending on your scene or the size of the image you’ll use to hide the emerging element. I hope this clarify how the mechanism works. Please, let me know if you understand the tutorial and if you think you’ll give this a try. I’d love to see your cards using this interactive element! And thank you very much for your interest in this card!!

Thanks for stopping by! Have an amazing day!
