The card in a box cards is a very popular card design right know and I have to admit I am hooked too. But I thought I step it up a notch and engineer a design for a card that is rubber band activated and automatically pops up as soon as you pull it out of the envelope. I am hoping to find the time to post the template and put together a tutorial. Be sure to check out the video so you can see the card in motion.
Here are some more details of the card.
I covered the blue card stock with Crystal Effects. When it was almost dry I used my Simply Scored Stylus tool to indent the Crystal Effects and add some movement to the water. It looks pretty real.
The golf ball is mounted on two pennies with a dimensional in between so it moves in the slot - much like a spinner card.
A very special card for a very special birthday.
