Mimi rounds out our All Things Birthday inspiration with an interactive birthday card that is so creative and fun! She combined a clever shaker idea with a pull tab element too! I’ll let her describe her process in her own words, take it away Mimi!
I created a birthday shaker arcade game card with dispensing tickets. Shake the card and try to get the little critters in their own Ferris wheel basket. Pull the tab and watch the ticket come out.
To create the game machine, I started off by stamping and die cutting the claw machine from You’re Claw-some. I did mask off the bear portion and the dispenser and then stamped TICKETS from Wheely Great Day, arrow from Open Me and the loading bar from Virtual Friends. I also cut the inner part of the machine out and adhered a piece of clear acetate behind it to create the window. Next, I cut an open slit in the loading bar to create the ticket dispenser.
I die cut the claw machine (no stamping) on white card stock and stamped the ferris wheel from Wheely Great Day. I also ink blended with the Sunray Background stencil. I stamped all the little critters, saving the fawn for later. I also stamped 5 extra baskets and placed double sided foam tape leaving room for the little critters to slide inside. I placed double sided foam tape around the window to create the shaker window.
I die cut the Raffle Ticket die and stamped some critters, mini banner from Fly High and happy birthday from Simply Celebrate Critters.
Next, I die cut 3 pieces of Large Stitched Rectangle. The first one, I adhered a piece of the Stripes ’n Sprinkles paper, with another one, I created the pull tab mechanism from Let’s Toast Pull Tab Add-On and the third one is for the base panel. I aligned the raffle ticket and pull tab next to each other (leaving a small space) and placed a strip of clear piece of acetate at the top of the two so that they are parallel and move as one.
I assembled the card by slipping the raffle ticket through the slot and making sure that when I pull the tab, the tickets come out too.
Lastly, I decorated the rest of the card with tickets and the little fawn critter that I saved from earlier. The little fawn’s party hat is from Meow You Doin’ and the mini balloons from Tiny Birthday Friends
I hope you enjoyed this great inspiration! A big thank you to Mimi for creating this amazing card!
