Hoping Your Birthday is a Blast!

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing a new style of card that I discovered recently while browsing online. This card is called a Double Tower Card and you can find how to create this here

This is a fairly tall card being 7 inches tall, so it was the perfect opportunity to pull out a new space stamp set I recently purchased from Uniquely Creative. 

For the background I used Distress Oxide inks to create the Galaxy Sky Technique.

I also pulled out a few of my other space themed stamp sets, from Lawn Fawn, MFT Stamps and There She Goes to finish my card.

The accordion panels on either side of this card seemed the ideal place to add some embellishments, so I added numbers and a couple of aliens ... so it looks like you are counting down to BLAST OFF!

Here is another view of the card, this time when it is lying on the desk. Hopefully you can see the side panels a little better,  it was hard to photograph this so you can see the beauty of this card.

On the back of the card I added a white panel to add a sentiment and one of the spaceman from the stamp set.

Stamps: Have a Blast - Uniquely Creative; Beam Me Up - Lawn Fawn; Space Explorer - MFT; Out of this World - There She Goes
Paper: White Black
