Let's go for a Ride . .. Papertrey Ink blog hop February 2012







Hey stampers, hope you're having a good Saturday!

I found the time this week to maek a card for the Papertrey Ink customer blog hop.

The challenge: to make an interactive card.

I don't have the dies to make the zipper card or spiral, very cool things, but I used a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers to make a viewmaster card.

I want to take a photography course this summer if I can find one, so they turn out a little better, the sun was glaring a bit. I hope you can see the dial on the right hand side of the card; you attach a large circle with a brad and it spins around. My opening is the car window, so different 'passengers' are going for a ride in the window. You can fit about four of the tiny treats images on the wheel. Anyway, I had fun, hope you're having fun hopping. Thanks for looking!

Stamps: Papertrey Ink Enjoy the Ride, Tiny Treats Valentines
Ink: Black, cool carribbean, Ranger distress inks in greens and yellow
Paper: New Leaf, Spring Rain, PTI white, random DP
Other: 1/8-inch hole punch, copics, PTI car die, brads, buttons
