Have A Stellar Birthday

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog.  Being a brand new month, it's time to introduce a new challenge hostess which is Lois Bak.

Apparently today is World UFO Day. Make a card with something from space – the sun, the moon, a planet, a UFO, a rocket ship. Or, create a galaxy background for your card. 

For my challenges this month I have added a second personal challenge for all my cards, which is to create all my cards Slimline.

About a month or so ago I got Honey Bee Stamps Far Out Friends stamp set, so of course I wanted to use that for my card today. 

I decided to create a double interactive Slimline card for my card today. On the front of my card I created a Flap card using Lawn Fawn's Small Slimline with Lift the Flap die set. I used the rectangle die included in this set to die cut 4 slimline rectangle panels, one having the lift a flap die cut in it. I wanted something a little different to the galaxy sky background I have created a lot for my space themed cards recently. So started by covering my card panels with purple, then dark blue around the edges and finally black. I then splattered white and liquid stardust all over the panels. 

I layered the panels to a black slimline rectangle panel which was die cut using the plain rectangle included in Trinity Stamps Scalloped Card Panels and Banners die set.

I die cut the star included in the Lawn Fawn Slimline die set, three times and added that to each of the flaps. I also stamped a sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps Stellar Sentiments and added this under each of the stars.

When you lift each of the flaps it reveals space creatures which are from Honey Bee Stamps Far Out Friends stamp set.

When you open the card, it reveals a space themed pop-up scene. All stamps used in the scene are from the Honey Bee Stamps Far Out Friends stamp set. I used Karen Burniston's Katherine Label Pop-up die set to create the pop-up at the top right hand side of the card. I added the astronaut to the pop-up, so it looks like he is floating in space.
