Tilt Card Tutorial

Here is a tutorial for the card from this post, just in case you missed it! :)

SUPPLIES NEEDED:
-paper cutter
-craft knife
-stamps of choice (here, Just So Hippy from GinaK Designs)
-cardstock
-2 pennies
-Stampin' Dimensionals
-scissors
-Aquapainter
-ink pads (here, Wild Wasabi and Palette Noir)
-adhesive
-embellishments as desired





Step 1

Ink up and stamp just the head of the hippo. (I tried stamping the whole body and then putting the "behind" on top, but it looked weird when the behind moved and there were still legs there) LOL.















Step 2

On a scrap piece of paper, ink up the whole hippo and stamp. Cut out just the "behind".

















Step 3

On the piece of cardstock that just has the hippo's head, use your craft knife to cut out a square big enough for a dimensional to fit through, leaving a little space on each side. Attach dimensional to penny, then put penny behind cardstock with dimensional coming through cut square.






























Step 4

Peel off backing and attach another penny on top of dimensional to form your "penny sandwich". (the third photo is a side view so you can see the pennies on either side of the cardstock)






























Step 5

Color the hippo.














Step 6

Attach the hippo's behind on top of the penny. Once attached, tilt the piece from side to side to see that it works. If the hippo's behind doesn't tilt, try cutting the square a little bigger so the penny sandwich has a little room to move. Be careful not to cut the hole too big. . . unless you want the behind to spin around, that is!































Step 7

When you're happy with how the piece tilts, flip the whole piece over and apply dimensionals to the four corners. You want the penny sandwich to have room to move, so you don't want it to touch the card base.
















Step 8

Apply mattes, embellishments and sentiment to finish card!





Hope that all made sense and that you had fun! I'd LOVE to see any "tilt cards" that you make! Be sure and post a link for me!

Great tutorial....I will try it immediatly....thanks, love your blog

wanda said...

I'm lost, or missed something. If you want it to tilt, why not just cut it out and use a dimensional to slightly tilt it? Or, is it suppose to move slightly?

Love this hippo, and the giraffe in this set; had to purchase it.

Martha said...

That is hysterical!!!! Love it! You are so creative!
