Interactive Magic Shutter Cards

Interactive Magic Shutter Cards
         Hi friends sharing 2 fun Interactive cards which I made to give to my daughter's friends.
         We stay in what is popularly called as a "residential layout" in India and my daughter gets invited to a lot of birthday parties !
       Over the months I realised that rather than my usual floral cards I needed to make kid friendly simple and fun cards!
Interactive Magic Shutter Cards
Sharing two cards which I am hoping will appeal to both boys and girls!
           The Garden themed card with froggies is an interactive gatefold card which on opening has a window magically appearing to reveal a sentiment!

With the rainy season starting in Bangalore my garden has lush greenery and lots of croaking little and not so little froggies!

Do you think boys will like this one despite the flowers?

  1. Hi Dr Sonia. Love both your cards. But I love the first one more because of the cute little froggies, their cute expressions and classic colour combo of green and red.
    The second one is subtle and I like the grey combined with subdued blues and pink.
    I am sure boys would like the first card.
    Great work. Thanks for links to the tuts. I may try it one day, when I have enough confidence :).

  21. WOW! I think boys would love EITHER of these cards (they'd see the frog I expect!). Love this look and the inside circle reminds me of the Iris folding. So much pretty color on the garden one, and so many lovely details. Like the 'movement' on the Smurfs and soccer ball and your daughter's friends are going to be so happy to have one of these! TFS & Hugs (and tfs the video as well).
