Interactive Magic Window Card


Interactive Magic Window Card
Hi friends sharing an interactive card I designed featuring a magical window . The central picture in the  oval frame changes as you open the  card!
I didn't follow any tutorial while making it and it sort of happened by trial and error. I wish I had taken photos to show you a tutorial as it turned out real cool!
Here is the Video from my Instagram feed

I used dies from Crealies  to decorate the  inside of the  flaps and create the  rectangular and oval frames.

Explosion Pop Up Card

Explosion Pop Up Card 
Hi friends...sharing a fun Pop Up Card perfect for the  festive season as it folds flat for mailing and packs a punch when you open it!
Explosion Pop Up Card 
The folds are origami folds...tricky to get right the  first time you try it [ I followed a tutorial from Mixed Up Crafts to make it]!
Explosion Pop Up Card 
I die cut cute little presents from metallic paper to make the  present. I love the  Presents die set from Crealies  and I think you can adapt the  same card design to make a cute birthday card.
Explosion Pop Up Card 
I added a Merry Christmas to the  lower flap of the  card. I created my own pop up mechanism in the  center using 3 strips of card stock Here are the  Measurements and score guides
Score all strips on the  long side :
Strip A 3 x 4 inches : Score at 1/2, 2 3/4 and 3 1/2
Strip B 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches  : Score at 1/2, 2, and 2 3/4 
Strip C 1 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches : Score at 1/2, 1 1/4 and 2
Explosion Pop Up Card 
Mountain fold all the  strips at the  scorelines as shown

Pop Up Card 
Strip A will go at the  bottom followed by Strip B and then Strip C. These measurements are just guidelines. You can fashion your pop up to fit the  theme and size of your central pop up.

Flip and Fold Folio Tutorial

Flip and Fold Folio
Hi crafters. I know you will agree with me when I say it feels good to be able to stretch our supplies isn't it ! I created this folio / folder  by tweaking the  die-cut shapes from a Crealies  tag die [Crealies Big Labelzz and Tagzz No.16 ]

Flip and Fold Folio
I made the dimensional paper flowers using Crealies  dies and really thick card stock so that they won't be squished when the  folio is handled!The leaves are holly leaves inked, shaped and glittered to give a beautiful look.
Flip and Fold Folio
The  closure of the album is magnetic and made with Crealies tag dies, a blingy heart and backed by a lacy flower die cut.
Flip and Fold Folio
Can you see the flower pearls  on the  base...they add such a lovely texture!

Flip and Fold Folio
Here is the look when you open the latch...
a dual panel which opens out further into a triplet.
Flip and Fold Folio
The upper flaps which are magnetic open up to reveal the design underneath.
The beautiful On the edge dies from Crealies are so eye catching!
Flip and Fold Folio
These 3 tags flip down to reveal  6 panels!
Flip and Fold Folio
Here is the  top trio with a pocket inside to hold notes, tags, recipes, to do lists etc.
Flip and Fold Folio
And here is the  lower trio with pockets made with Crealies tags.
I used Crealies Bits and Pieces stamps on one of the  pockets
Flip and Fold Folio
And here is the  whole folio when completely opened out.
Flip and Fold Folio
Here is the  Video to show you how the  mechanism is


Flip and Fold Folio Tutorial.
Rather than give a full fledged Tutorial, I am sharing the salient steps so that you can adapt the  Tutorial to any  large dies in your collection  or you can even use the  idea for hand-cut shapes
Flip and Fold Folio Tutorial 
Die cut 6 tags from fairly thick cardstock using the biggest die in the
Flip and Fold Folio Tutorial 
Die cut 12 tags from pattern paper from the next size smaller tag from the same set.
Just to get a unique symmetrical shape, I have shaped the lower part of all the  tags
using on the edge die cutting as shown below.
Flip and Fold Folio Tutorial 
Create Flaps
Die cut 3 smaller shapes from card stock using the largest tag die
and 6 smaller shapes from pattern paper using the  next smaller size die.
Flip and Fold Folio Tutorial 
Here is how you can place the  die cut shape on the  edge of the die to create a new shape! 
Flip and Fold Folio Tutorial 
It is best to tape it so that it doesn't move while die cutting.
Flip and Fold Folio Tutorial 
You need 3 flap pieces cut from card stock and  6 flap pieces cut from pattern paper pieces to stick on either side of the  card stock flap pieces.
Flip and Fold Folio Tutorial 
Make connecting strips using card stock as long as your tag at the middle part and
about 6 1/2  x  1  3/8  inch  and  6 1/2   x 1  5/8   inch.
Score ½ inch from either end as shown. 
You can increase or decrease the middle width depending on the  thickness of your folio.
If you going to add many tags...increase the width in between
the outer 1/2 inch scores in both the strips

Flip and Fold Folio Tutorial 
Create strips to connect the flaps to the base tags using
approx 6 cm x 1 1/8   inch [I used a mix of  centimeters and inches as it gave
the most accurate measurement in  this particular case....
you can adapt to suit your design]. Score 1/2 inch from either end.

Flip and Fold Folio Tutorial 
To connect the 3 upper tags to the  3 lower tags:
Take 3 cardstock strips 6 cm  x 1 inch and score at 1/2 inch [in the  center]
Flip and Fold Folio Tutorial 
Here is how it will look when you attach the strips
Flip and Fold Folio Tutorial  
You can add magnets to the  inside of the  flap if you wish. Do so before sticking the pattern paper. And this is how it will look after adding the pattern paper
Flip and Fold Folio Tutorial 
You can use these as mini planners, recipe booklet, add special photos or you can add notebooks, pens etc inside each panel and adjust the  measurements accordingly.
I hope you liked this idea on how to extend your dies.

Snowman Snowscape Card

Snowman  Snowscape Card
Hi friends... one can never have enough Christmas cards right..? 
Though I love making 3 dimensional cards ...for Christmas, like many of you, I like to make "mail-able" cards with just a few embellishments. 
In this card I have used the Crealies On the Edge No 43 to create the snow scape background and inserted a duo of snowmen behind the slits cut with the dies. The On the Edge No 43 cuts a lovely stitch line on either side of the  cut so it is especially cool for this technique of creating a background.
Snowman  Snowscape Card
I added lots of snowflakes and a beautiful silver lamp
with a golden light shining from within it.

I used Crealies   dies to make the  poinsettia and gave it a subtle sprinkling of glitter
