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.
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…
