Halloween Bash Interactive Circle Card!


I love cards that move, don't you?  They are so fun and are a nice surprise for the person opening the card! This card moves in cascading circles when you pull on the ribbon so that when it is extended, it looks like this:
As you can see in the photo above, the Circle Collection Framelits from Stampin' Up!® are your best friend to make this card!  Julie Davison did a great video tutorial for this technique.  I'm posting a list of the supplies I used, along with which framelit circles I used for each section.  To learn how to make a telescoping circle card, you can watch Julie's video here.
I also made a matching envelope for this card using the Witches Brew paper and the envelope punch board! I used the 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" size for my project – which is really 4" x 4" but I wanted lots of room for the ribbon pull.
So how did I get those sparkly black letters?

I used Heat and Stick powder with the Stampin' Up!® Black & Orange Stampin' Glitter!  Use your embossing buddy on the card stock first, then stamp your image in VersaMark ink.  Sprinkle on the Heat & Stick powder (it will be a white powder) – heat on high setting JUST until it turns clear and turn off your heat gun.  If you heat it too long it will lose it's sticking power.  Then sprinkle on the black glitter, don't worry about tapping off the excess, we will deal with that after the next step.  Turn your heat gun back on the high setting and reheat every part of the glittery words (I go over it 3 times).  This softens up the adhesive so that it really grabs that glitter.  Now you can take a paint brush and brush off any excess.  NOTE: I did not sure Heat & Stick powder on the "Beware" image – it made it too hard to read (it works better with bold letters).  So for that image I applyed a little 2-Way Glue Pen to the bat and sprinkled on some of the black glitter.
