A DIY Wobbly Action Card

I am sharing a really happy cheery card today. When I made this card, I have my son David and his friends in mind. I think this card will be perfect for the teenagers!

With some stamping in neon inks, this card was a lot of fun to make. I didn't actually have the wobbly design in mind at first. It wasn't until I almost finished the card, I realized that the card can use a little "action"!!  An interactive component is always a good idea with kids and teenagers!
Make Some Noise
My daughter Stephanie is my hand model for this 5-second video. You can see the wobbly action.
 By attaching a small spring (with metal wire) on the backside, you can get a bit of fun action going. Hope this inspire you to try one!
I'll be back for Mad about...Mad Men series next! See you Sunday!
