Swinging on the Moon - Double Dial Card

Swinging on the Moon Double Dial Card

Hey crafty friend, Amanda from Pear Blossom Press here again. 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 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 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. Here are step-by-step photo directions to assemble the pieces...

8. Attach green moon to top brad.

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.
