Winnie and Walter Leading Lady Take THREE!


Hello, friends, and welcome to TAKE 3 of my Winnie & Walter Leading Lady posts! I am actually super excited about today's feature! This week we are getting ACTIVE! Before you all run away, I promise not to make you go to the gym. Afterall, the word 'run' only comes into my vocabulary when I am 'running out for ice cream' or something along those lines. So, no. We aren't going to doing squats, planks, or the like, but we ARE going to make our CARDS active! Yup! Today's cards all have some interactive feature on them. The go from simple to more complicated, so there is a little something for everyone today!

Welcome Home


I started with the gorgeous This Awesome House stamp set. That dog. You guys. I. Love. That. Dog. I love the rest of the set, too, but the dog will always be my favorite. I colored the house, stamped the background...all pretty normal card-ish things, but then I used my knife to cut the doors so that they would open. I mounted the house on foam tape and....

Eeeek! How much fun is THAT?! I used the chimney stamp to create the end of a table and sat the cat beside it right inside the door. It just makes me happy. This is such an easy way to add just a small interactive feature to your card! So fun!

Winter Wonderland Shaker


You HAD to know this was coming! I simply couldn't do a post about interactive cards without a fabulous shaker! I love them so much! For this one I used the Scenery: It's a Wonderful Pennant stamp set in conjunction with the The Big, The Bold, and Seasons set. I created a simple little scene with LOTS of glitter and sequins inside!

And last, but CERTAINLY not least, I have this super extra fun interactive card for you...

Okay, I can here you now... "Ummm, Jingle, I know this Leading Lady stuff is a lot of pressure and all, but I'm pretty sure that is NOT an interactive card. Nope. I mean, it's cute and all, but it's just an ordinary CAS card."

WAIT for IT......

Smile (detail)


BOOM! That just happened. Yes, my friends, when you press gently on the shutter button on the camera, it lights up! I used a tiny (and I mean TINY) LED, some copper tape, and a watch battery to do some paper circuitry behind the popped up panel. It's all very thin and light weight, so it works great on a card!



Thanks so much for stopping by today! Don't forget to comment on each of my Leading Lady posts throughout this month for your chance to win a $30 Gift Certificate to Winnie and Walter!

Have a Happy!
