To the stars – interactive card #2

Hello hello,

Today I brought you a space themed interactive card – I made it for my beloved husband on the day he left for his one month shift at work. It is always a difficult day and these little messages hopefully cheer him up (I also make a card for him each month when he returns home, he has a nice collection already.)

Back to the card: I started with creating the galaxy background. I silver heat embossed the planets from the Out of this world stamp set on a piece of Bristol Smooth paper I filled the gapes with the tiny stars from the same set, just this time I added iridescent embossing powder to them for that extra sparkle. I didn’t want to go super black and I decided to go with distress inks. I applied some Cracked Pistachio, Wilted Violet and Mermaid Lagoon first with a mini ink blending tool. Then I started to blend in Blueprint sketch and Chipped Sapphire. I added some water sprinkled and dabbed it off with a paper towel. Then another layer of those inks and splatters again. I also used some Black Soot to darken the edges and some parts. When I was happy with the result, I took a Copic opaque white paint and sprinkled some on the background to look like mini stars.

While it was drying I stamped and coloured (Shinhan markers) the cute astronaut image and cut it with the coordinating die. I cut an extra piece from a scrap white cardstock and adhered it to the back of my coloured one to make it more durable as I wanted to place an action wobble spring on the back of it. Before adhering it to the galaxy background I used the biggest stitched rectangle Lawn Fawn die to add the nice stitching detail to it. Under the wobbling astronaut I used a strip of black cardstock with a heat embossed sentiment on it.

As a final touch I added some clear shimmer with my Spectrum Noir shimmer pen and glossy accents on the helmet and some details on the uniform.

Simple design but that action wobble makes it special.

I will submit this to the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #2 Interactive cards.
