Somebody fan me down... is it really the final round of Gallery Idol??
This week's theme is interactive birthday cards. Lemme just start off by saying mechanics and math are not my strong suits :) But I think I managed to pull together a super sweet and clever card, and my kids have been "interacting" with it all weekend... hee hee.
Oh, and I realize that the photo-editing took a dramatic turn, but I really wanted to be able to show you all the details of my "from frying pan to table" card. So, card pictures first, details at the end... enjoy the little "motion blur" to show how the eggs go down :)
My favorite things about this card:
I opted to not make the eggs spin down the card - the track was too wide for that. Instead, I attached the eggs/bacon onto a strip of acetate, so they can be slid up and down.
I also love that I "re-inserted" the frying pan face and the top of the serving tray. I had to go back to the spinner die and cut those out separately.
I wanted to mount the focal panel onto foam squares, so I backed the entire panel with vellum card-stock. The track is translucent!
I love the pop of texture from the MFT rolled rose die.
I hope you like this card as much as I do. If you do, I'd appreciate your vote! You know the drill - click on the picture of my card on the right side-bar and it will bring you straight to the voting site.
Thank you for popping by!
