Mechanical dog card

I've been calling my products pop-up cards, but a better term that I've recently discovered, is mechanical cards. Not all my cards pop up. Some simply move if you turn a lever or wheel.

Using this new term, I found this tutorial using google on how to make a very charming mechanical dog card, from Martha Stewart:


LOVE IT!

Can't wait to try this mechanism out!

That's so funny--I have that same card in my "things to make" file.

I like that you can download a blank version and add your own dog picture. Very thoughtful of the designers.

I've always said "movable cards" but I think you are right, "mechanical cards" is a better term.
