For The Boys

Here is my card for the challenge inspiration.
I made a floating shaker with a floating floor pop up card using the Out of This World Stamp set from Lawn Fawn. Lawn Fawn has some very cute and adorable stamp sets. I really enjoy coloring the cute little critters and characters and making sweet adorable cards from them. For this card, I started by cutting some Bristol Smooth cardstock for an A2 sized card and ink blended the galaxy for the shaker and for the inside of the card both.

I used the Tim Holtz distress inks for ink blending. Once I was happy with the blending I splattered some water for the distress effect and also some white gouache for some starry effect.

For the front Panel, I die cut the frame using the Stitched Rectangles Stax and also cut the same frame seven times from plain cardstock. I aligned and stuck all of them together with the top frame attached to a clear acetate window to close the shaker. I colored and die cut all the stamps using copics.

I added two nylon strings loosely and attached one astronaut and one space ship to it so that they could appear as if they were floating when shaken. I sealed the shaker panel.

For the inner panel, I stuck the second galaxy I made and placed the sun and the rest of the planets on it. For the astronauts and spaceship to land on something I made a planet surface ink blended onto a Bristol Smooth cardstock and craters added for details.

I added the two astronauts and the spaceship onto the floating floor panel and also added the sentiment, It’s a Special Day from the same stamp set. Then, I added a twine leading from the spaceship to the astronaut who appears to be floating in the galaxy.

That is all for this card. I hope you like the card I made and will join me in this week’s challenge.
