Interactive Snow Globe ATC

Still playing wit the new TLC die from 7 Kids Crafts.
This time i challenged myself to use the die for an ATC (artist trading card)
It was slightly tricky as i had to reduce the size of the wheel.
Check it out below..


I am using a Picket Fence Studio stamp set called, A Season of Giving
There are several fun stamps in this set!

Let's see how this works in a video...

Here is how i trimmed the dial for this ATC:

Flying Snowflake fairy, Nixie

Something new at 7 Kids Craft Store!
TLC has created a Double Dial Die and 7 Kids is selling it!
If you like interactive cards, you will love this die!


I am using a Sweet November image called, Nixie
She comes in a bundle with a snowflake and a magical swirl
Some tips for creating this interactive movable die.
Make sure you cut the die out of heavy cardstock.
I used 140lb watercolor paper.
Flat brads work much better so that everything lays flat.

Snowflake Fairy - Neva

I love the names that the Sweet November artist, Amy Young uses.
I get confused sometimes, so this name, i told myself..to think..
Neva from Neverland.. I am saying she is a cousin to Tinkerbell.


I am using Sweet November image - Neva
She also comes in a bundle with snowflakes and a magical swirl
She is beautiful!
I wanted to give a different card a try.. i can't believe i hadn't made one of these shadowboxes before.  It is quite fun and satisfying.
I changed out the typical dimensions to fit my basic 5.5" card. 
Just needed to add 3" to the total width.  Then scored 1/2" and 1" on each side.
I used digital paper so i could make the card to the size i wanted.
