Creativity in Motion - Various Animated Cards (Part 1)

Close To my Heart has just released a super fun series of animated products for National Stamping Month in September. All the products are listed under Creativity in Motion. 

I was honoured to be asked by the corporate office to create and share artwork using these products for the benefit of all consultants. I created 7 interactive cards and shared them throughout the second week of August via live Facebook videos and posts. I am now posting all of those cards here in two separate posts. Unfortunately, without a video, you can’t see the actual motion in the cards - the images under the striped acetate actually appear to be moving when the tab is slid back and forth - it is SO cool! 

The stamps that go with this campaign are designed to work with the CTMH Stitched Square and Stitched Rectangle Thin Cuts. 

The first card is a gift card holder. There are 2 movement components here - one on the top with the word Thanks and the other inside the holder (a heart). The center section is designed to hold a gift card and there is also a complete card on the back with a space to write a message. 

The second card today is a Double Z Joy Fold Card. This card has been made and remade in various formats. I used a stitched rectangle frame for the front of the card and used a Happy Birthday sentiment. I decorated the remainder of the card with a stamp and die combination of coordinating coloured flowers and leaves. 

The third card is a Box Fold card. It goes by other names but this is the name of the one I located. The card front will stand on its own but for support, I added a card base behind. The dragonfly moves a lot when the insert is slid back and forth. 

The last card today is a Double Diamond Fold card. The stitched rectangle was the perfect fit for the front of this card and I used a hippo for that slider. His arms, ears and tail move when the slider is pulled back and forth. A small sentiment was added on the inside of the card where it isn't visible when the card is opened. I also added a panel on the back on which to write a message.

Tune in again tomorrow for the second instalment of these Creativity in Motion interactive cards!
