Papertrey Blog Hop - February 25 & Play Date Cafe Challenge 120

It time for another Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.  During the release this month Papertrey introduced a series of dies for creating interactive cards, easily.  The dies introduced were for creating the following types of cards:  poppers, sliders, spinners and zippers. The challenge for this month's Blog Hop was to create an interactive card.  My Papertrey order hasn't reached me yet but I still wanted to play along.  Using my Silhouette I downloaded a circle shape for making a pop-up card.  My niece just turned 17 and I wanted to make a card for her that wasn't too grown up or too childish but still fun.

I am also entering this card into this weeks Play Date Cafe challenge that features an awesome colour palette of baby blue, orangesicle and basil.









All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White, Aqua Mist, Summer Sunrise, Spring Moss
Stamps: Make a Wish
Ink: Aqua Mist, Summer Sunrise, Spring Moss
Dies: By the Numbers, Make a Wish, Filigree, Ric Rack
other: assorted buttons (PTI)
