take flight interactive card...
Hello my fabulous friends!
If you remember back in October, I guest designed for The Hedgehog Hollow and shared a fun new interactive die designed by my friend Tammy Cunliffe. I got asked if it was possible to buy just the die, and sadly, the answer was no...
I'm so excited that Tammy is releasing this Double Dial die on it's own (with a few improvements) on her brand new website!!!!!
And she sent me one to test out....

This die allows you to move two things at the same time by spinning a dial! It looks complicated, but it's actually really easy to put together, and the instructions printed on the packaging are very clear and easy to follow with both words and pictures!
One of the big differences to this die from the one released through Hedgehog Hollow in October is the fact that the tracks and the frame are now separate dies.. so you can use this frame with or without the tracks, AND you can use the tracks in any other frame you want!! So much versatility!!
Check it out!!
This adorable Let's Get Dizzy stamp set from Tracey Hey is perfect for this die!
The die is designed to have have the dial on the bottom right (so the zebra would jump to the right), but because of which arm the zebra has out to catch the helicopter seed, that just didn't work... But it's a super easy fix... I just flipped over my panel after die cutting it! You can have the arched slide face either direction without any trouble!
To help disguise the workings of the card, I made sure to layer a piece of paper covered in the same blue inks behind top panel... This way, the tracks blend in to the background. (just be sure to use foam tape to attach the two layers to give plenty of room for the moving pieces!)
I also layered some die cut grass on the front (again, using foam tape) to hide the track ends and the dial brad.
My background was created with a lot of ink blending... I then added some gel pen stars, and a heat embossed sentiment to finish it off...
Now I need to go through my stamps and see what other stamps will work fabulously with this die...
See you soon!
