My husband is about to have a BIG birthday. Because he loves tinkering around in his woodshop, I knew I needed to order the Vintage Tools stamp set, so I could make a special card for him. I decided an interactive card would be perfect. Since I didn’t have to mail the card, I could add some wood “shavings” to the card. I’m guessing that if you put this card in some bubble wrap, that it would survive the mail.
There are not any punches or dies to go with this stamp set, so I had to fussy cut the plane. The pegboard was created using one of the decorative masks that has been retired. I used an embossing folder for the wood piece (I believe is was called Plank) but there is a new folder called Timber 3D that would work just as well.
I’ll include the dimensions and the supply list below. But watching the video will show you how I made the slider mechanism and other details to help you make your own interactive card like this one. Here is a link to my video tutorial.
I would love for you to leave a comment here on my blog or on my YouTube channel after you’ve watched the video. And, if you get a chance to make this card, I would love to see your what you made!
