Here is the awesome card we will be creating!

This is the A Creative Journey with Melissa Angels with Autism Stamp Set that I used to create this project.

To begin this project, take out your A Creative Journey with Melissa Angels with Autism Stamp Set, stamp block, BV4 Chameleon Pen and your paper to be stamped on. Place your stamp on your stamp block.

Take out your ink. Ink your image on  your ink pad ensuring full coverage.

Stamp your image onto your paper.

Using your BV4 Chameleon Pen, color your image.

With this image, I chose to only color the puzzle piece in blue.

I used my Brother Scan and Cut 2 to cut out my images and had them on hand. I cut out the colored stamped image as well as a reversed image to be used for the back of my interactive piece.

Using the sentiment Thank You For Being You, ink your stamp.

Stamp the sentiment on your yellow paper.

With the punch of your choice, punch out your sentiment.

TIP: For rhinestones, I love to use my Quick Kuts Quicker Poker Picker Upper! It is a must in my tool bag.

Whether you use your finger or a tool, place rhinestones on your tag to add a little bit of sparkle to your creation.

This is what it looked like once I was done placing my rhinestones.

Take out your BV4 Chameleon Pen.

You are going to create a custom colored rhinestone for your project. Color the rhinestones on your tag with the B4 Chameleon Pen. You now have your very own custom colored bling!

This is what the rhinestones look like before and after coloring them with Chameleon Pens.

Using your removable adhesive, place a small amount on your red card stock.

Adhere your red card stock to your card base.

Grab your 2 1/2″ circle punch.

Punch your card base ensuring it goes all of the way through your card base and red mat on the front of the card.

Carefully remove the red card stock and set it aside.

For your Autism Awareness Interactive Thank you Card Tutorial, use strong adhesive while placing two lines below and one above the punched out circle.

Place your twine in the center of the circle.

Cut off any excess string.

Add adhesive to the entire back of the red card mat ensuring it will stick holding in the interactive string with the stamped image.

Make sure you have your card so it is centered over the hole in the card base.

Take out both of your images – the front and the back.

Using some of your strong adhesive, place a strip of it on the front side of the back image and the back of the front image. Adhere the back image to the twine. Press the twine into the adhesive ensuring it has stuck firmly.

Adhere the front colored image to the string ensuring it is secure. This is what makes your Autism Awareness Interactive Thank you Card interactive.

This is what it looks like once you have adhered the front and back image to the string.

Take out your tag. Place foam squares on the back of the tag. Remove the paper from the foam squares.

Adhere your tag to the front of the card.

You have completed the Autism Awareness Interactive Thank you Card Tutorial! How do you plan on using this card base for future creations? The possibilities are ENDLESS!

    I love this card. My youngest son is autistic, along with suffering from clinical depression, extreme anxiety, mild agorophobia and physical pain (arthritis, fibromyalgia, and spinal stenosis). I thought it might be a good one for me to give him a little lift for his spirit. Thanks for all your good ideas, I subscribed to your newsletter quite some time ago and I know that I have watched some of your videos on YouTube. I’m going to double check and see if I have already subscribed. Anyway, thanksagain for all your wonderful projects and information.
