When I saw Claire's challenge to make an interactive card, I knew right away what I wanted to do. The Waltzingmouse Stamps Half-Pint Heroes set is perfect for creating cards with moving parts. I've done interactive cards with the set's car and rocket images, but I think this is the first I've done with the submarine image.
The sand at the bottom is made from a pair of torn edged kraft cardstock strips, inked with some white pigment ink and a brown distress ink. I wrapped the kraft strips with some baker's twine and secured the twine with a bow before adhering the panel to a blue mat, then to the kraft card base. The kraft strips and the layered sentiment panel at the top of the card were strategically placed to hide the adhesive I used to hold the acetate panel in place--always one of the trickiest parts when using acetate in a design!
