The idea for this card came from Pull & Slide Cards Using Flower Forming Foam | Flying Cards | Kinetic Cards
The first thing that we will do is prepare our paper. We need an A2 base in white cardstock. So, to make the base cut an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock in the middle at the 5-1/2″ mark on the long side. Then take one of those pieces and place on a paper scoring board and score in the middle on the long edge at 4-1/4″. Now, you have a base!
In addition to the card base, we are also going to need the following cuts of paper:
- Cardstock – Gold – 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
- Cardstock – Gold – Scrap for Cutting Coins
- Cardstock – White – 5-1/4″ x 4″ – You’ll need 4 pieces
- Cardstock – White – 3/4″ x 5-1/4″ – You’ll need 3 pieces
- Cardstock – Black – 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
Let’s start by making our pot. On a piece of black cardstock stamp the snow globe near the top of the cardstock so that you “cut off” the top part of the open snow globe to make the pot have a more open top. Cut out the pot. Also on a piece of leftover black cardstock, stamp the Tiny Perfect Layering Circle twice in black ink and cut out. Fold each of the circles and cut out a U shape to make a hole in the circle which will be the handles of the pot. Cut out of the black cardstock scrap a base for the pot. Glue on base and the two handles to each side. Using a white gel pen highlight the pot to make it look round. Attach 3d tape to the back side and set aside.
Now let’s make some money! Using the Perfect Layering Circles on the back of the gold cardstock stamp in black ink 3 Tiny Circles, 3 Big Circles, and 4 Mini Circles. Cut out all the coins. On the gold side of the coins stamp your choice of the Tiny Four Leaf Clovers one on each coin in VersaMark ink. Sprinkle on gold embossing powder and melt with a heat tool. Add a little water to the mica paints and apply with a brush to each coin, trying to get paint that is thicker. Set aside to dry. Add mica paint to plastic coin to take off some of the shine.
Glue two white panels together (this will give t strength) and stamp all of the leaves in green inks on the lower half. Color in open stamp images with spring green pencil and color between images with apple green pencil.
Tape pot to the stamped panel toward the bottom and over to the left. Put 3D tape on the backs of some of the coins and fill the top of the pot, glue some, without tape and placing some on the pot and one small one at the base of the pot. Fussy cut out the shamrocks and pot, working around the 3D tape as best you can. Add 3D tape to the sides and bottom of the stamped panel, leaving the top open.
Glue the last two white panels together and adhere the stamped panel to the bottom, lining up the sides and bottom. Stamp the sentiment in cottage green ink at the top and to the right. With a make up brush sponge summer sky ink along the top edge and lightly over the top portion of the cardstock. Glue this completed panel to the gold cardstock.
Place 3D tape to the top, left side, bottom, and a small portion of the top and bottom sides of the back of the gold cardstock. Hot glue a magnet to the back of the plastic coin and place the other magnet on it. To create the lever, cut three strips of white cardstock 3/4″ wide and long enough so when it’s butted against the 3D tape it will stick out about 1/2″. At one end stamp in cottage ivy the Mini Solid Shamrock and fussy cut around the top two “petals” of the leaf. With the clover side up and to the right, place a piece of double sided tape at the other end of the lever. Now, flip over and adhere to the magnet that is sticking to the other magnet on the plastic coin. Gently Pull apart. So, now you have magnets on each of your elements that will stick and not repel each other.
Remove the backing and adhere entire stamped panel to the card base. Lay the plastic coin in the area where the sentiment is gently slide in the lever and the coin should find the other magnet. Now you can move the coin around and back down into the pot of gold!
To create the envelope, cut a piece of gold cardstock to6″ x 6″. Lay the cardstock on the Scor-Pal with the point of the paper at 6-inch mark and the bottom point at the 6-inch ark. Score at 3-inch mark and 9-inch mark . Rotate paper to the next point, lining it up the same way (the score marks you made are now horizontal). Score at 3-5/8-inch mark and 8-3/8-inch mark. Snip all the small triangles from each side of the paper. Fold all score lines. Snip any paper that sticks out and prevents the envelope from folding correctly. Place card in envelope and fold right and left flaps first, then bottom flap. Snip point straight across. Put a bit of double-sided tape or glue along the edge of the bottom flap and adhere to right and left flaps.
