Papertrey Ink February 2012 Blog Hop

Pin It

The Challenge: This month, it's all about being interactive! Show us how you take your cards to the next level, whether you have received your Movers & Shakers dies, or you're just inspired to create a pop up or swinging card without them. There are so many options for this theme, and we can't wait to see what you have to share!

I'm used this month's PTI Blog Hop 'interactive' challenge to make a little 'gift-card' for my Send Love Today assignment - a  young boy who loves dogs.  I often incorporate little "gifts" into the cards, such as baseball collector cards, sweet treats, samples of lotion, guitar picks, and then build a card around the gift.  In this particular card, I used Gel Gems with a dog image.  I can image the little boy removing the Gel Dog and sticking it to his window.  

Papertrey Ink Supplies used:  Prefolded cardstock and envelope. 
To make this card, I cut out a window.  I glued an old PTI transparency sheet
from one of the PTI stamp sets to the inside of the window and then placed a
sheet of yellow cardstock behind it for the background. The Gel Gems
were stuck to the front of the transparency window for the recipient to peel off.

Have you sent any love today?
