My Favorite Things – April Card Kit Preview Day 1

Hi everyone! It’s time for the April My FavoriteThings card kit preview! With this kit, you can create super fun spinner cards!

Here is what I came up with: 






For this spinner card, I used things that I found in the kit, nothing else (only basic supplies, like a circle die, black ink, foam pads, glue). I added the little movable mechanism to make the crocodile / alligator jumps out of the water. But I hid it. I so love this sentiment! 








The Jungle Friends card kit will be available on March 19 at 10pm EST (= Europe: March 20 at 4:00 CET) in the MFT boutique.




Be sure to check the MFT blog for a full list of kit contents! 



For more inspiration, you can also check my MFT Gallery on Pinterest!

Thanks for visiting my blog…

Hi Francine, I see that you have had a lot of fun making and playing with your playful crocodile. You are extremely creative in making a creek for him to play in, I'll make sure I don't go swimming there! LOL.

AWESOME!

Dee Ann Matthews said...

Such a clever alligator to do the slide!

Debra Rumpza said...

Hi Francine! I love this card so much and I am trying to mimic it for my grandson's 3rd birthday (with a different sentiment of course). He would be so tickled to see a hidden animal pop out! Would you be willing to share how you did this? Is the mechanism to trigger the movement inside the card? Thank you! I love your cards!!

Francine said...

Hi Debra,
I used the Surf & Turf Die-namics from MFT to create the mechanism.

You can find this die here:

You can also watch several video tutorials on how to create a slider card using this die:
