Pull Tab Surprise Cards + Sale

Hello! I am here to share with you a few fun interactive card designs. All of these cards feature pull tab surprises.

All of my cards today were inspired by the brilliant Concord & 9th Mail Drop Stamp Set (SSS | EH | C9) and Dies (SSS | EH | C9). These products were designed so well… and can be used to create many different interactive cards. In addition to using these products, I show how you can create pull tab surprise cards with other products. I hope you will try this technique! Be sure to watch the video to learn all of the details.

My first card starts with an envelope with flowers inside. When you pull the “pull here” tab, a sentiment is revealed. In addition to the Concord & 9th Mail Drop Stamp Set (SSS | EH | C9) and Dies (SSS | EH | C9), I also stamped the background with the Hero Arts Mail Jumble Stamp (SSS | EH | HA) and added a hand from the Essentials by Ellen Handful Stamp Set.

And here is the surprise when you pull the tab! (Oh – and that fun stamp on the coordinating envelope is from the The Ink Road I Arted Stamp Set. I used this set on all of my matching envelopes today.)

My next card is similar to the first, but I simply changed the pull tab feature. The “pull here” is white heat embossed on a piece of scrap clear packaging to make it blend in more. The “hugs” heart is from the Lawn Fawn Candy Hearts Dies (SSS | EH | LF).

And, again, when you pull the tab, a sentiment is revealed…

The Concord & 9th Mail Drop Stamp Set (SSS | EH | C9) and Dies (SSS | EH | C9) can also be used to make a post office box interactive feature. This time, when you pull on the Mama Elephant Big News balloons, a Mama Elephant Playful Pups dog and Mama Elephant Mini Messages sentiment appear! The background features the Concord & 9th Flower Patch Turnabout Stamp Set (SSS | C9) and soft Lawn Fawn Inks.

It was fun to dig through my stamps and figure out which images would work for this.

I stamped “pull” on the balloon with the Honey Bee One Of A Kind Stamp Set (SSS | HB).

The first few cards inspired me to create a pull tab surprise card but with other supplies. This time I used the Honey Bee Rainbow Wishes Stamp Set (SSS | EH | HB) and Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Border Dies (SSS | EH | LF).

When you pull the clear tab, a rainbow appears!

I also added a gold glitter Birch Press Big Shine Sugar Script die cut.

My video also includes a bonus card. Here, the mailbox door opens to reveal a message inside…

This card uses the Concord & 9th Mail Drop Stamp Set (SSS | EH | C9) and Dies (SSS | EH | C9) along with a Poppy Stamps Picnic Plaid background.

  1. Another terrific video! Got my notification early this morning and went straight to YouTube. Ordered and will watch again while creating my own cards. Thanks for all your inspiration and for keeping me motivated.

    1. All week I look forward to spending my Saturday morning in bed watching your videos and eating cereal!! I LOVE interactive cards and fun fold cards!! These cards were extra fun!

  2. Hello Jennifer . I really enjoyed watching this video tutorial and I will be trying to make some similar cards.
    However you did show us rather a lot of resources which I suppose were worth quite a lot of money so I’m glad you said at the end that we could use whatever we had. Maybe sometime you could post a video that uses minimal resources and basic shapes. .

    Best wishes… Linda Kitto. England.

  3. Such lovely cards. I’m always looking for different interactive cards to make for a couple of my greats and these will be perfect for them. Thanks for another fabulous and informative video.

  4. Jennifer,
    These cards are so cute. Just love the little pull tabs you made and that Sunshine, rainbow and cloud card would cheer any one up especially if someone is down or ill. Love all your neat techniques too. Thank you.

  5. Well done Jennifer, they all turned out fantastic…
    I’m glad I didn’t have to pick a favorite one because they are all my favorite….tfs

  6. Love these! Wow! My head is spinning with ideas! I wish I could try them now, but I can’t. Soon. I will be able to soon. Thank you so much! Hugz!

  7. I really love the mail theme cards on this post. 😍 I also love that you show us ways to adapt whatever you may to make the interactive feature translate into whatever our supplies may be. Thanks for being you and sharing your creative heart.

  8. I fell in love with that mail box set as soon as I saw it. Thanks for showing me some new ways to use it! Your video was sooo helpful in showing how to make these wonderful interactive cards. Loved them all. The one with the rainbow was particularly clever. Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring me!

  9. My 3 year old Granddaughter loves it when I send her cards she can play with. Thank you for providing me with so many more ideas for more cute interactive cards to do for her.

  10. Super cute cards and love the drop mail set. The set will have to go on my wish list, it is a little more then I can spend at this time, thanks for showing me how to make some with my regular stamps!!

  11. You always amaze me with your cards. These interactive cards, especially the dog and the rainbow,were so creative and the instructions, as always so helpful. Thank you for sharing your talents, it is very much appreciated.

  12. These are so very cute. I love all your clever ideas and the beautiful cards you create. I do appreciate that you include suggestions for us to be able to create something similar with products we already own. My stash has grown over the years, as I’ve created cards and though I’ve donated to our church rummage sale and given to friends, I still have a lot and need to use that. It sounds good as the written word anyway. Lol! 🙂 Thanks again!

  13. Love these interactive cards. I appreciate that you show many ways to do the same technique and ideas on how we can use what we have. You are such in inspiration in this industry. Thank You.
