You Are...

 I usually make scene cards for little guys with some cute puns but today I thought I would try a different style.

The products I used are Altenew's Halftone Circles and Circled Sentiments stamp sets with the Inline Alpha and Calligraphy Alpha die sets.

Halftone Circles Stamp Set - Altenew


Inline Alpha Die Set - Altenew

Calligraphy Alpha Die Set - Altenew

The inks I used are the lightest shades of Altenew Inkpads - Buttercream, Frayed Leaf, Soft Lilac, Frosty Pink, Blush, Artic and Sea Glass.

First, on a white piece of cardstock cut slightly smaller than 4.25 x 5.5 I stamped the 4 smallest halftone circles in the soft ink shades.  Then I die-cut the peek-a-boo windows towards the bottom as shown. I also die-cut the peek-a-boo windows from a blue cardstock and cut the window panels out and adhered them to the inner side of the window.  This will give the interactive windows some additional dimension and strength.

Next, I selected 3 of the Circled Sentiments (Unique, Amazing and Awesome) and stamped them on another white cardstock - leaving enough space between each sentiment as these will be adhered to the cardbase behind the peek-a-boo windows. I measured the windows, mark them on the cardbase with a pencil and carefully adhered the Circled Sentiments on the cardbase.  Then I adhered the stamped cardstock onto the cardbase with foam adhesive for some dimension.

Next, I stamped the Circle sentiments once more on a scrap white cardstock with Buttercream, Artic and Frosty Pink inks and die-cut the letters 'YOU' with the Inline Alpha dies. Then I die-cut the word 'ARE' from a teal cardstock using the Calligraphy Alpha dies.  The words are adhered to the card as shown.

I think this interactive card is rather fun for a young boy.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Have a great day!
