Make A Scene by Becca Feeken | Kinetic Cards with Jean Manis

Hello crafty friends! I’m Jean, a papercrafter living in the Pacific Northwest blogging at Right as Rain. I am delighted to share three cards created with the Make A Scene Collection by Amazing Paper Grace for Spellbinders. Creating scenes with dies is one of my favorite papercrafting activities. With this collection, you can create unique kinetic cards for a variety of occasions, which are sure to brighten the recipients’ day!

The basic steps for the three cards are the same: create the Make A Scene Card Base, craft the Front, Middle, and Back scenes, and assemble. All three cards shown use Make A Scene Bold Greetings set to create the Back scene. The overall size of the card is 7″ x 5″ with an opening of 4″ x 2 1/2″.

The first card combines the “Just A Hello” sentiment with elements from the Cozy Home Scene and Rolling Along Scene sets.

  • Create the Make A Scene Card Base with solid cardstock and patterned paper. Add light-weight white cardstock to back of patterned paper with double-sided adhesive for stability.
  • Cut the Front Scene with the fence piece in the Cozy Home Scene set from white cardstock.
  • Cut cat from black cardstock with die in the Rolling Along Scene set; adhere to fence.
  • Cut the Middle Scene from green cardstock with the house piece in the Cozy Home Scene set.
  • Cut the house with the same die from red cardstock. Trim off the bottom and decorate with window, door, and threshold pieces cut from white and colored cardstock. Adhere house to the front of the green cardstock piece.
  • Cut the sentiment with the Make A Scene Bold Greetings die from blue cardstock. Cut the letters from white cardstock; adhere using the negative piece of the letters for alignment.
  • Cut cloud from white cardstock and adhere to the sentiment scene.
  • Cut a hill from patterned paper with die in the Rolling Along Scene and adhere to the sentiment scene. The hill should be adhered slightly below the horizon line of the house (if the hill is just at the horizon, the bottom of the hill will be visible when the card is fully open).
  • Place scenes into slots of the card base.
  • Cut patterned paper with the Make A Scene Card Base front opening die. Cut piece into two sections and adhere to the opening with the card closed.
