Interactive Card For Mason

Over at Monica's Creative Madness (see blog link on the right hand side)there is a blog hop  for Mason as well as a card challenge. The cards made for the challenge will be mailed to Mason and his family. There are links on Monica's blog about Mason and how you can help him and his family. I encourage you to make a card and join this challenge.

This was a challenge for me as I usually don't make cards for boys. Also I knew what I wanted to do but wasn't sure how I was going to do it. My brain got a workout figuring out how. I wanted to make an interactive card.

Here is the card I came up with. I am really pleased the way it turned out.

Yes the car really does move and really easily with my finger. The track is cut out of a scrap of black paper. I drew the track in Studio and forgot that the ends needed closed. LOL! So now  I have a couple of wavy pieces to use in another project.

The car is a print and cut. I added Mason's name on it. The picture doesn't really show it but the windows are coated with Dimensional Magic so they have a vinyl feel to them.

I didn't know what I was going to use for the sentiment and a couple of different things cropped up. Then I found the racing flag border and it was decided. I drew a oval around the border and added the sentiment. Once more a print and cut.

Thank you for stopping by. Do come back again and if you are having dreary weather like I am make something for someone else. I can guarantee it will lift your mood.
