Cards with a little bit of an interactive element are always fun to receive.  For today’s project, I’m using an action wobble to add some fun movement to a bright and cheerful birthday card.

I started off by stamping a background on a small square of white cardstock using my Precision Press Advanced and Avery Elle’s Balloons stamp set.

I used Hero Arts’ Neon Pink and Neon Green inks to really make the balloons stand out.

For the “moving” focal point, I colored a stamp from Sizzix’ Clear Birthday Wishes stamp set using some Zig Clean Color brush pens.

Now for the fun part!  This is an action wobble.  It has a plastic spring sandwiched between two adhesive pieces.  One part attaches to the front of your card and one part to your focal point piece (in this case, my birthday cake) and allows it to bounce back and forth when you move it with your finger.

I backed my balloon background piece with some patterned paper from Doodle Bug’s Swiss Dot rainbow paper and added it to the front of a white notecard with foam tape.  I then attached the birthday cake with the action wobbler to the center.

I trimmed the wobbler down a little with scissors before attaching it to the cake so it wouldn’t show through.

With the spring in the back of the cake, you can bounce it back and forth and it “wobbles”.

Action wobblers are fun to add to any focal point.  They’re great with critter stamps too!  Thanks so much for joining me today
