Interactive Balloons Birthday Card

Hi, everyone!Interactive balloons?!Oh,yes! Definitely, yes! Why did it take me so long to try and make an interactive card? No idea. It is so much fun and gives so much joy one could not imagine.
So, the birthday card was made for my dear cousin, friend and great photographer. If you’ve been on this page before, you surely saw his amazing photos.


And as the title says, the card is interactive and took less time to make than I thought it would.
I had the balloons coloured for some time using some of my Promarkers. The stamp balloon is from Dovecraft and it’s been in my stash for some time now. A while ago, I think around Christmas, I watched some YouTube tutorials on how to make interactive cards. What fun!


IMG8627xiTook my Xcut machine out, die-cut some circles and some round borders to create the base and necessary die-cuts for the card. I used kraft card in natural colour, white and blue card stock for the circle borders and for the white card circle that went inside the card to be the background. I coloured the sky (circle background) using Distress Inks and my fingers as blending tools.Then, I attach some dark blue thread to the balloons to make the spinner.


Adhered the spinner to the front card base, the round borders – a bit off to create an interesting layout. The sky background got adhered to the inside of the card and all that was left was to add the sentiment.For this, I used Docrafts Papermania DenimBlue shading ink pad and some blue card trimmed to fit as a background. And ta-da! The interactive balloons birthday card was ready!

I spun the balloon as much as possible and then gave it a go to see how fantastic that was! You can see it here. Now, don’t be too harsh, please. I filmed it with my phone and been too enthusiastic about. The next ones will be much better for sure.

Wishing you a lovely day,
