Galactic Adventures Pop Up Birthday

Are you a Sci-Fi fan? Space adventures and galactic journeys tickle your fancy? Well, there are oodles of people in my family that are all over every one of the these movie series! Which makes the Galactic Adventures stamp sets from Kindred Stamps must-haves for me!

I didn't mean to, but I used images from all three of these stamp sets:
I had stamped out and colored a pile of these images right after I got the stamp sets in early February, and I am finally using some of them! I had actually had this card in mind for a while, and just had an opportunity to figure out the measurements a few days ago. This card is for my future son-in-law, as he is nuts for these galactic heros... my daughter got him a Star Wars toaster for his birthday 😉

  • Start with a 4¼"x7" piece of cardstock, score on the long side at 1½" and 5½".
  • Use a decorative edge die to cut the middle section only, using the Partial Die Cutting Technique. I used the Papertrey Ink To the Point Edgers dies for this card. Then trim off the excess on the two side panels. 
  • Cut a piece of cardstock to just to 4½" wide and several inches long, and score at ¼" and 4¼". Crease well. Apply Tear and Tape or Scor-Tape on the ¼" flaps. Then you can trim each tier down to whatever size you need and it is all ready to be adhered to the inside of the card.
  • Figure out the placement of your images, and adhere to the tiers. 
  • Open the cardbase up, and start adhering your tiers, the furthest back and tallest tier first. Line the outer edge of the flap up with the side crease and adhere (the tier will be face down while being adhered), then fold the tier in toward the center. Take the next tier and line the outer edge of the flap up with the edge of the back tier and adhere, then fold the tier in towards the center. Repeat this process until all tiers are adhere. Line the flaps from the other side up even with the bottom of the card, remove the adhesive backing, and fold the other side of the cardbase down over the flaps to adhere them all at once. 
  • Open it up and marvel at the adorable card you just made!

Look at that, it folds flat to mail!!

And fits in a standard A2 envelope. Gotta love a good mailable card.

Concord and 9th has a super clever die set that makes creating this style of card so easy! It is definitely on my wish list!

Here is a clickable supply list for the supplies I could create affiliate links for. Help me buy more stamps, so I can share more ideas with you 😉

I was recently here and this is an amazing place for a wedding. I got a little carried away with the open bar. An open bar allows you to like any sort of music, even the most awful. Anyway, for those of you thinking to marry, these NYC wedding venues are the perfect spot.
