I made a 4x4 square card. You know that awesome moment when you see a set and you say to yourself... "I have some dp that will be perfect to go with it"... Yep, that is what happened with this card. I have had this dp for probably 7 years at least. It has been sitting in my drawer. I never could find the use for it until today! 
 (Of course since I'm not that organized, I had to go searching for it. I almost didn't find it. I am so glad that I did though because I really think it works with this set.)
I cut it so you could see the moon and the astronaut. I adhered it to the cardstock with squiggly sewing. I added 3 rhinestones.

I knew that I wanted my rocket ship to be flying. So I made a pop up card.
I stamped the sentiment and the planet on the bottom of the card and put the rocket at the top.

The sounds of space for my generation!


  1. Cool-I always forget to make interesting twists such as pop ups!

  2. Your blurb cracked me up!!! I am so glad you were able to find the paper. What a neat way to add the rocket.
