I'm head over heels for mechanical cards. I spend a ton of hours planning and figuring out folds, tabs and slots.This is a very simple card on the outside that will surprise you when you open it.
|A cute mouse that pops out rotating from behind the cheese|
Don't be intimidated to try it out, there's only four pieces to this mechanism.
- Card base (peach cardstock)
- Mehanism (yellow)
- Rotating piece mouse)
- Mechanism cover (cheese)
The mechanism has two layers, a scoring layer and the path itself. Ungroup the file, change the function of your top layer to score and attach it to the layer below.
I used the mouse, the cheese and the sentiment from an OAK Tree Stamp Set, part of the Fall 2016 release called Marcello. I stamped the images using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with COPIC markers. I then cut them using the Electronic Dies OAK Tree Stamps gives for free at their site. I then, made a slit above and below the mouse's hands to insert the little cheese wedge. Stamp your sentiment on the inside of the card base
