Hello Crafty Friends!!

Larissa here to share a couple of Interactive Encouragement Cards!! I LOVE to create Interactive Cards and even better if they can make someone SMILE at the same time!!

Interactive Encouragement Cards

You Make Me Smile Encouragement Card

For the first Card, I wanted to create a Scene!! I just LOVE this darling Lantern and thought it would be FUN to Foil and turn it into a Focal Shaker Element for my Card!! Here’s how I created this Radiant Card!!

I started by Stamping the “All is Bright” Lantern Image onto some White Cardstock using some Versa Mark Ink then Embossing it with some WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!! I then set my Laminating Machine to the 2 setting and cut a piece of Iridescent Deco Foil large enough to cover the image and then ran it through the Laminating Machine!! I then took the coordinating “All is Bright” Die and Die Cut the Lantern out!!

I also Die Cut another piece of Cardstock and piece of Vellum using the Lantern Die to use as the Inside of the Lantern that I inked with Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink and then I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment onto the Vellum!! I adhered all of the pieces together using some of the 3D Foam Sticky Strips to create my Shaker Window!! I then added some of the Taylored Expressions Snow Flurries Sequins!!

I wanted to add some Greenery to the Lantern so I Die Cut the Pine Branches from the TE Winter Greens Die Set from some of the NEW Emerald Green Deco Foil Flock Sheets that I adhered to a piece of Cardstock with some of the Easy Cut Adhesive Sheets!!

To make the Pine Branches POP, even more, I used some Distress Oxide Ink in Forest Moss to Ink the edges of the Branches with an Ink Dauber!! I just LOVE the way that the Flock Sheets come to life after they’ve been Inked!!

I wanted a Foiled Bow to add to the Lantern too, so I Foiled a piece of Deco Foil Toner Sheets with some of the  Magenta Deco Foil and then Die Cut the Bow from the TE Winter Greens Die Set!!

I Die Cut the TE Starry Night Cutting Plate from some White Cardstock and then added some Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink to resemble the Glow of the Lantern!! I wanted to back the Panel with some of the TE Rainbow Bright Deco Foil so I Foiled a Piece of Deco FOil Toner Sheets with the Rainbow Bright Deco Foil and adhered it to the backside of the Inked Starry Night Panel using the Memory Tape Runner XL!! Then I adhered the Lantern Shaker to my Card Panel using some iCraft Adhesive Tape!! I adhered to the Flocked Pine Branches, Magenta Foiled Pow, the Flower, and the Iridescent Star using Zots Bling Adhesive Dots!! I LOVE the way it turned out and know its sure to bring a SMILE to the recipients Face!!

For my Second Card, I wanted to create a Slider Card using the Typewriter Image from the TE “Just My Type” Stamp Set!! Here’s how I created it!!

I Foiled the Brutus Monroe Designer Toner Sheets in Paint Brushed with the Rainbow Bright Deco Foil and cut it down for my Card Panel!! 
Then I Foiled some Deco Foil Toner Sheets with the Deco Foil Turquoise Transfer Sheets!! I Die Cut it using the TE Scalloped Circle Stacklets Die Set!! I Die Cut a Stitched Circle from some White Cardstock and glued them together using the Memory Tape Runner XL!!

I Stamped and Embossed the Typewriter from the TE “Just My Type” Stamp Set and then Die Cut it using the coordinating “Just My Type” Die Set!! I Die Cut the Typewriter Sheet and the Tab and then Stamped and Embossed the Pull Tab and the Hello Friend Sentiment!! I adhered the 3D Foam Sticky Strips to the backside of the Typewriter in order to create the Slider portion for the Typewriter!! I added a Magenta Foiled Heart to the center of the O and I just LOVE the way it turned out!!

I adhered the Typewriter to the center of the Scalloped Circle and then Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment using Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder from the TE Mini Strips ~ Fun & Funny Stamp Set!!
