CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Let’s Interact

For the May CTMH Technique Blog Hop,  our focus is using an interactive element.  It really is a lot of fun and the results can be quite entertaining.  If you are coming from Melissa Robinson, you are on the right track.  In case you get lost, you can get a complete list of participants on her blog right HERE.  This month we have approximately 11 Close to My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using one or more interactive technique along with a variety of our great CTMH products.  To enjoy this hop is quite simple to do - just click on the link at the of the post on each blog to move to the next one.  Here we go!  

I love our Cricut Cartridges for FAST and EASY 
cards, embellishments, and more.
For this Fast and Easy interactive card, I used LOVE from the Artfully Sent Cartridge pg 35,  The pop-up heart is from the same page.  They are cut from Sorbet paper and backed with our new HAPPY TIMES paper that is only available during the month of May.  I added a bow using our white and gold ribbon.  The interactive element of this card is a pocket inside the card that can be for an additional surprise message or a gift card, I'm using a gift card .  I used the same white ribbon and a glue dot to pull out the gift card.  The pocket was made with more of the Happy Times Ombre paper, stamped with flowers from the coordinating stamp set with the Happy Times sentiment plus some of our new Florence sequins.  I left the inside of the card plain so that I could write a personal message.  The zip strips and more white ribbon inside the card add a final touch that says, 
"This card was made for you with love."
