Too Much? No Such Thing!
You know I adore an interactive card, but as much as I love to design new mechs, there are a few companies that design interactive dies really well, and I too often forget to use them. Here, I'm embracing a die that would be a bear [to manage without.
Card Size: A2
I will link the shop that has the lower price in the description and alternate shops after the linke
The triple flip dies is a fairly simple mechanism, and Karen Burniston always provides an excellent assembly video with her dies. It also comes with decorator pieces. For this set, that includes rectangles to put on the mech that flip open and closed.
I wanted to switch it up, so I used my 2" circle punch and then cut 1/4" off of each. I sandwiched the mech between two for each flipping circle. Then I decorated with some of my favorite holiday dies. That racoon is one of my favorite KB dies, so I cut his hat by hand.
I'm entering this card into a few challenges:
Simon Says Challenge: Die Cuts
Simon Says Monday Challenge: Holiday Cheer
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes
Time Out Challenges: Winter or Holiday Season
