My mom and I always joke around calling each other Baby Bear and Mama Bear. So even if my mom’s birthday is still far away, I jumped on the chance to make this card using the Lil Hoot set from Hero Arts.
I am entering this card for the A Blog Named Hero Interactive Card Challenge sponsored by Chibitronics. Chibitronics is not required for this challenge but the card had to be interactive. So after a lot of thought on what kind of interactive card I wanted to make, I settled on a spinner card.
Here is my card —
I started this card with a the Neenah Textured card stock in blue and stamped the Hero Arts Magical Background using Versamark ink and embossed in American Crafts Zing Clear Embossing powder. I wanted it to haver stitched edges but I didn’t have a big enough die, so I used the straight line die cute from Pretty Pink Posh on each side. I cut the circle on both the panel and card base at the same time. For the image, since the bear from Lil Hoot wasn’t symmetrical, I had to do mirror image stamping to get the the back side of the image for the spinner.
For the sentiment, I used one of the smaller dies from the My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangles Stax. I used Milo’s ABC from Lawn Fawn to create the mama bear sentiment and a happy birthday sentiment from the It’s Your Day set from Hero Arts.
Here is a short clip of the spinner card in action —
