3, 2, 1…Launching the Best Day Ever–MFT Hits & Highlights


For this month’s feature, we’re launching cards into a whole new world with Blast Off Die-namics—the sky’s the limit!

I employed a really simple design to showcase this adorable Die-namics! To begin, I cut all the pieces of Blast Off Die-namics and assembled them for this colorful rocket.

Then I created my background by spattering white craft paint on an After Midnight card stock card front. Once it dried, and after careful measuring, I cut Leaping Slider Channels Die-namics from it.

Next, the card front was adhered to a Sweet Tooth card stock base with 2 layers of foam tape, and a Slider Element was adhered to the rocket and a piece of clear acetate and the acetate slipped into the slider channel.

After testing to made sure the rocket moved without any impingement, I added Stitched Cloud Edges Die-namics, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock and also popped up on two layers of foam tape—to ensure smooth movement. The sentiment from best Friends in the Universe was stamped on another Stitched Cloud Edges die cut and also popped up on foam for the finish.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you can find some time to have some rocket fun, too! See you soon!
