Hey crafty friend, I’ve got an awesome new interactive card for you today! I paired up images from Space – Infinity & Beyond, and Space – Miss You, along with a neat double dial die set, to create a fun swing card. Check it out in action…
To prep, I stamped my images and Copic colored them. I extended the arms of the astronaut’s swing and connected them at the top with a black pen. Then, I cut out all of the images with my ScanNCut. To create the galaxy background, I borrowed a trick from my friend Cassie, and just splattered thinned white paint and shimmer mist onto black cardstock. It’s fast and easy. I cut out a 5″ circle and trimmed the top off to create the card front. I used the double dial die set to cut the slots from the circle, as well as the dial, link, and washers. It may seem complicated, but I promise, this was really easy to put together. The die set even punches all of the holes for your brads, so you know exactly where to connect the pieces. Here are step-by-step photo directions to assemble the pieces…
To finish the card, I added a few dots to the top right, and bottom left corners of the card base with black and white pens. I glued a bunch of round and star shaped gems all over too. And a hand drawn arrow on the dial, lets the recipient know how to operate the mechanism.
Thanks for stopping by today. I’d love to know what you think of this one! You can find the sister article to this post on The Rabbit Hole Designs’ blog. Head on over and check it out!
