Hi! Today I am back with 3 cards with a twist. All 3 of them are not the traditional design, the have gate fold fronts or fun interactive elements on them. Check them out in the video tutorial below. All supplies are listed at the end of this blog post.

the Easter bunnies card

For this card I created two flaps at the front, they add dimension on my card by being part of the little scene but at the same time they make a lovely gate fold card. The stamp set I used it the Easter Bunnies ( MFT | SSS ), which is absolutely adorable… but all Stacey Yacula designs are!

As you open the flaps you can see more of the little scene I created and you can even add more elements hidden like flowers for example.

On the inside you can find the Easter Eggs and you can write your personal message on the grass or at the back of the flaps where it will be hidden when the card is closed.

the interactive swing card

The little girl is from the PI Start Each Day with a Whee” “( MFT | SSS ). In this card there is also a mechanism that allows the girl to swing. That was made using the Interactive Swing Die-namics ( MFT | SSS )

It’s really easy to make when using the die set and it also gives you a swing. So if you don’t have this stamp that I used, you can use the swing from the die set and add on top anything you already have… and how about adding little creatures instead of people ?!

the bunny window gate fold card

For my last card I used the Cottontail Cutie ( SSS | MFT) . When the card is closed you can see the bunny looking through the window and when the gates are open you get a bunny windows on each flap! I kept the front simple since with a design like this you really don’t have to add a lot. Just a fancy ribbon to keep the card closed and you have an amazing card!

  1. Such cute cards! That bunny card is just too adorable! I just love that little girl on the swing and the sentiment you used (start each day with a whee), makes me laugh. Great pun! Thanks, Vicky. I appreciate seeing some different card designs to try. P.S. there is an adorable cat that roams around where I live and she/he is a ginger cat. I have decided to call the cat “Ginger” in honor of your Ginger who always makes me at least smile!!!!

    1. The “Ginger” cats – 99% of the “Ginger” cats are males. We have two boys, Pumpkin and Peanut and they sit with Mum and I when we are in the craft room. We LOVE kitties!!!

  2. I admire your creativity! Such fun cards! You know I gotta have all these products now. Makes me excited to create! Thank you for your great ideas

  3. These cards are just wonderful – I’m always impressed with your creative talent and grateful that you share it with all of us!! Thank you so much!

  4. Stunning cards Vicky, love them all. What a great ideas with these lovely stamp and die sets.
    This are realy cards with a twist. Thank you so much for showing.

  5. We LOVE all three of the cards. We’re always looking for different ways to fold cards and the bunny card is a great idea. LOVE the new swing die/stamp set. That is just adorable. The birthday bunny is also adorable; great for Easter as well. Can’t wait to get into the craft room this weekend.
