Color Month 2024 – Day 11 – Lawn Fawn Give It a Whirl Interactive Card

Hello! For Day 11 of the Color Month 2024, I created an interactive card using Lawn Fawn’s new Give It a Whirl dies. The first scene on the card is in black and white, and then when you “whirl” it, the second scene is in color. For the colors on the second scene, I used a card from Sarah Renae Clark’s Color Cube Volume 2.


(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

I had an idea in my mind for my card, so I created the initial greetings on my computer and printed them out on Bristol paper to foil them. I used gold foil and my Mini Minc machine for the foiling. Then I stamped Simon’s Floral Mix Background in waterproof black ink on both scenes.

The scenes were watercolored using Karin Brushmarker PRO markers, which are a dream to paint with! Then I assembled the whirl portion of the card using the Lawn fawn dies. The rest of the card was finished by adding some texture to white cardstock using Spellbinders’ Puff Dotty embossing folder and inking some black ink on the edges.

When it comes to assembling the whirl mechanism, I relied heavily on Kelly Marie’s How-to Video on the Lawn Fawn YouTube channel. Thanks, Kelly!
