Interactive Cards: Hinged

Card 3 from Interactive Cards, edited by Tanya Fox, is a hinged card.  And I must confess that I picked this card because it was easy (and thereby quicker to make in a pinch than a slider card).  This time I made my card mostly match the one in the book.

Basically there's the front an back of the card, attached by a brad, allowing the card to swing open.

And here's my version:

I didn't have a sentiment stamp, so I printed it out on my computer.  If you've never tried printing on cut shapes, here's a tip I learned from someone on the internet (and I apologize to them, as I don't remember who it was so I can't link to their site).  Obviously I didn't refer to the book before printing my sentiment as I ... modified it (the card in the book says, "You are one sweet cookie.").

The trick is to print the sentiment out on scrap paper, then use repositional tape to secure your cardstock on top of the print out. This way you'll know exactly where the sentiment will be printed on your cardstock.

I didn't know those things had a name!

Don't send that card to someone who's on a diet, eh
