Fetching the Christmas Tree

Here's another Magic Picture Changer card I made using the Lawn Fawn Die. I'm putting this one into the Interactive Card challenge for Lawn Fawn too. For this one, I used Lawn Fawn's row of houses snow-capped from the Simply Celebrate Winter stamp set.
I don't have a Lawn Fawn car, but I have one from Hot Off the Press. So, that's what I used to put in front of the houses. I coloured everything with my Copic Markers and I used my newest holiday die-cut sentiment.
I set the card on glitter snowflake cardstock and used a gorgeous red glitter cardstock for the sentiment. I got the snowflake glitter in a paper pad from Michael's one year (on sale after Christmas) and the red cardstock was from Dollarama. I really like the contrast between the snowflake paper (especially the navy stamping I did) and the red sentiment.
Now, the Magic Picture Changer die is a little pricey. So I did not buy the add-on die that creates a nice front panel with a window for the mechanism piece. (I'm glad Lawn Fawn separated those pieces to help keep the main die cost down.)

I have a set of stitched rectangles from Your Next Stamp. So, I used the one that matched the width of the Magic Picture Changer, but it's a bit longer. My panel is the piece with the navy blue snowflakes. I stamped white cardstock with a background snowflake stamp to make that piece. I cut a window in it with a 2 inch square die. Then I used the frame from the main Magic Picture Change die set to cover the window. That inside space is about 1.75 inches.

I really like my homemade cover panel. The extra length makes it fit with an even border on the front of the card base.

This picture changer is next level! I love having an interactive surprise waiting for the recipient. I have seen tutorials on how to do it with an Xacto knife, but my blade skills are not nearly good enough do that! Especially after colouring up the images, you want something that is sure to cut perfectly! I definitely would not ever attempt a card like this without the Lawn Fawn die!
