Mr Cardmaker is an Interactive Guy

I have entered the land of Papertrey Ink stamps and dies lately, and WOW am I having fun!
I have been ODing on their Rosie Posie stamp and die sets, and now I have some new PTI dies to play with.
The movers and shakers dies by PTI let you make interactive cards.  I made this one--

I used the PTI Simply You Stamp set for the sentiment, and yes, the flowers and leaves are done with the Rosie Posie sets.  I Wet embossed my white rose onto yellow CS, and the leaves are merely stamped. 

This is what you see when you pull the tab--(except not so blurry)

The key to doing this well is to use super strong tape on either side of the strip so it doesn't pull off while the tab gets pulled.  I used scor-tape on mine. 

This is a fun die, and there is also a landscape oriented one.  There are dies for things that pop up, and one to make spinners or sliding things with cool pathways. 

I am always psyched to find something new and exciting.  More, please!

Thanks for dropping by!
