I am sure you have seen the beautiful and clever Amazing Paper Grace dies for this month, right? It’s a cute little telephone – the old kind – the one where you dragged a number on a dial all the way and then let it fall back in its place before doing the same thing with the next number. :-) It is so super duper cute!
This die set is supposed to be a interactive card shaped like a telephone and having vignettes. You can check out how to make that using this video.
But I decided to make something slightly different – a 5×5.5 card with a telephone on top, but with with a message or a gift card, that can be pulled out.

- Create a card base that is 5×5.5. I just went with this size because it fit the large telephone die perfectly. I am sure 6×6 card will work too.
- Trim a patterned paper panel for the card front.
- Die cut the pieces.
- I used Cinch and Go dies for the flower, and May 2019 card kit dies for the leaves. I also embossed the leaves.
- For the dial itself I used a scrap paper of a copper mirrored cardstock and layered the things together.
- Assemble the flower and add a brad in the middle.
- Attach the white message label / small card to the handset piece. Using MISTI stamp the message on it and also the label with the arrow and the label PULL.
- Adhere the telephone to the patterned paper panel using craft foam pieces / foam tape to create a well for the message piece to slide in and out.
- Finish out by assembling the dial, attaching the flower + leaves and adding the finished front panel to cardbase.
