PTI Blog Hop: Interactive Card

This idea popped into my head this morning, but it's taken me all day to finish because I could only work on it for small chunks of time.  I had a ton of fun.  Other than the time thing, I don't know why I don't make interactive cards more often.  I'll post better pictures and details later, but we're off to a volleyball tournament, so I don't have time right now.

Okay, I'm back, and I've added some photos. They're brighter, but they make the card look a bit more goldy-yellow than it is.  And I was hoping that the sparkles on the paper would show up, but no luck.  Oh, well.  You win some, you lose some. 
The photos pretty much explain everything, but the buttons are actually brads, which is what makes the squares so easy to turn. I punched the hole on the top square slightly larger than I normally would when I insert a brad because that helped the square turn a lot more easily.
 And now for a couple close ups. 
 I love this little paper-pieced boat.  However, next time I'll probably just color the was a bit tricky to cut out.

 P.S. Since my sisters look at this blog, no, I am not announcing another baby. :) But I do think this would be a pretty fun way to do it.
