This is a fun interactive card that I made for a birthday using Beam Me Up from Lawn Fawn. The alien can actively beam up to the space ship and there’s also a glow-in-the-dark component with the stars in the sky. It was a fun card to create! With both the glow-in-the-dark and pull tab, this will be a fun interactive card to receive.
Beam Me Up
The idea started out with the Nuvo Crystal Drops where I wanted to make glow-in-the-dark eyes with them. So I dropped the white, then the green, followed by black and a small dot of white again. I let those dry while I worked on the card. I later came back to color the aliens and cut them out.
The ground was created using the Forest Border die with black paper and cut the rest of the project with the border dies and slider dies. The beam was stamped on mulberry paper. I would have liked vellum but I didn’t have any. This was the the second best choice.
The background was cut using a die and I blended ink on top using purples and black. I popped that layer up with foam tape after positioning the slider mechanisms. Then I used Nuvo Crystal Drops, the glow-in-the-dark ones, to fill in the stars and holes. It worked out great.
The larger alien just barely fits behind the space ship so that when it’s pulled all the way up that one is hidden. It would have been fun to have only one alien which appeared inside the ship but I couldn’t figure out how to get that double mechanism to work out. So that’s why I added the little guy to man the ship.
