Houston, We’ve Got a Birthday!

 Hello and Welcome! Todays card features Karen Burniston's Pop 'n Swap die and the Rocket Pop-Up  die set. It also features My Favorite Things Space Explorer stamp set. This was another fun card to make, especially the backgrounds. 

The card base is an A2 size card cut from 110lb black cardstock. 

The backgrounds of this card were made using Alcohol Inks in various colors. Once they were dry, I splatter white acrylic paint and white alcohol ink to make stars on the backgrounds. 

I die cut the rocket ship from the Rocket Pop-Up set and colored the pieces using Copic markers. I added shine lines with a Gelly Pen in size 10. 

I stamped and colored the images from the MFT Space Explorer stamp set and cut them out. 

I used the same heavy weight black cardstock to make the mechanism that goes inside the card that makes the little space explorers pop up when you open the card. 

I stamped both sentiments from the MFT Space Explorers stamp set. 
The sentiment on the front of the card is stamped with VersaMark ink and white embossing powder. 

I die cut the moon base from the Karen Burniston's Rocket Pop-Up and added it to the bottom corner of the card. 

I changed the pop-up mechanism so both images pop up when you open the card. To see how to make this type of pop-up card, check out Karen Burniston's how to video here.

I am so happy with how this card came out. I had a blast making it. :)

As always, thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
