Art Inspiration, Cards, Concord & 9th, Creative Tips

Hooray for Cake C9 Summer Camp

Hi Friends!

Today’s Creative Adventure is Interactive Cards. For me they are always fun but sometimes intimidating to try. This Let’s Eat Cake die & stamp set looked complicated but was really quite easy to work worth.

For as creative as I am, me & technical are not friends and interactive cards are usually technical. So I do better if I can watch it being assembled step by step. I love classes & tutorial videos for these type of projects.

My #1 suggestion is to always see if you can find several instructional videos on a project that might seem difficult. If you find the right instructor it helps a lot. If it’s a die like this card’s main feature, check out the company’s instructions & what their designers did with it. For this card the slider feature was designed right into the dies and after a couple of video walk-throughs, I got it. I always feel accomplished if something I thought was hard works out great.

Suggestion #2 is don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone & try a project. You may decide you don’t like a particular technique but by trying it out you expand your creative knowledge, tips & tricks for future creating. You also may fall in love with the technique & go on to create many variations of it.

So what is your favorite type of interactive card? A pop-up? Slider? Shaker? There are many possibilities when you start exploring moving parts on cards and albums.
