Interactive Birthday Card (ft. Crafting Desert Divas)


Hello everyone and happy Tuesday!

So excited to bring you my first daily post for Craftin Desert Divas! Today I’m sharing a fun interactive card featuring a brand new stamp set from their January Release called Spare Parts.

Love this cute set! It’s very versatile and can cover many occasions! Today I have an example how you can create a birthday boy card out of it!


I started stamping a few robot images from Spare Parts set with a waterproof ink on Bristol paper, coloring them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cutting leaving little white edge around.

I prepared my card base masking the bottom edge and added color using ink blending technique with distress inks. Finally I spritzed drops of pearlized water on top of the pattern to bring some interest.


Then I proceeded with an interactive part. I cut out with a craft knife a long narrow rectangle on a piece of a white card stock that was cut slightly smaller than the card base. To make my robot stamps slide across the card, I adhered little rectangle pieces of a foam tape to the images, put them in place and blocked with circles punched from a white card stock. Finally popped up the whole piece on the card base with a foam tape.

I felt like I still needed something else to tie all the elements together. So I protected the colored parts of my card and added some splotches of color using the same Zig markers I used on the robots. I finished adding some shimmer with a glitter pen and shine with Glossy Accents and didn’t add any sequins this time since it could obstacle the interactive part.

That’s all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you like the idea and you’ll give it a try!
