Interactive Card

Tracy Schultz GCD October1 Halloween cards can be so much fun! And what makes them even more fun, in my book, is adding an interactive element. Making the recipient pull, tug, twist, or do something to the card to reveal a hidden surprise always puts an extra wide smile on his or her face. An easy and fun trick is to add a tag behind an element on the front of your card. Tracy Schultz GCD October5 
Here, my little ghost friend is hiding a tag that reveals a fun Halloween sentiment. To make my tag stand out, I made it out of different colored paper. Then made it pop by adding black ribbon along with a button and twine to the top. Tracy Schultz GCD October2 
 Here's the little tag starting to get pulled out from behind the ghost. To make sure it fits snugly behind the ghost- simply use dimensionals to adhere the ghost to the card front. But position the dimensionals so that they form a "track" for the tag to slide into. Tracy Schultz GCD October3 
 And here is the tag when it's pulled out of the card. It reveals a fun little Halloween sentiment.

Here, I made a slider that moves the witch along a path right behind a spooky house and reveals a fun, hidden sentiment in the process. Tracy Schultz GCD October7 
 I cut all of the shapes out using my Silhouette. The slider window itself was done using a die-cut. Then it was just a matter of assembling the entire card and stamping my sentiment! Before I adhered the yellow striped paper to my cardbase, I stamped the sentiment where it would be revealed by the slider.

 Then I added the yellow striped paper, haunted house, and pumpkin to my card using dimensionals. I used a glue dot to adhere the witch to the slider element itself. Here you can see the slider in action- the recipient simply pulls on the tab to guide the witch along her path. And reveals the fun sentiment, too!
