MFT Card Design Superstar Innovation Master Contest ......

Hello everyone !! 
I am so excited to be sharing these projects I created 
for the My Favorite Things Card Design Super Star Contest !!!! 
I am super happy to be participating , believe 
me the entries are absolutely AMAZING  !!! 

I started to think of ideas from the moment I saw 
MFT announce it . Nevermind, that here I am 
creating and editing my photos with a 45 minute time limit
to turn these in (insert shocked face here ,lol ) . 

I just added my photos with only a couple of minutes to spare !!
I knew I would be coming back to add all of the info on how I created these .
I am so happy I made it !!
Whew !!!

I began with an idea for an interactive card / book
the moment I came across the MFT Interactive Labels
stamp set .
I love all of the fun options this set has for creating
interactive cards .
I instantly thought of an Astronaut/Outer Space themed party
using the Space Explorer stamp set . 

From the idea for a interactive card/book ,
I thought of an outer space scene box card .

They are super cute and easy to create . 
You cut a strip of cardstock to 11 x 3.5 inches , 
The widest parts of the card are 3" wide and the smaller sides are a little under 2" . 
For the window opening you die cut using a square die about 2.5 x 2.5 " . 
The Die-namics Square Stax set 2 has lots of different sizes . 

For the moon shape I used the circle from the 

I am so sorry , I have not told you where the inspiration for the colors came from !!!
I was at Target (LOVE the dollar spot ) .
When I saw these glass drink bottles
with the different colored lids ,
I instantly knew I would be using them with the
super cute astronauts .

I have three boys , so as you can imagine 
planning birthday parties is always fun . 
My older boys are more into going places to celebrate their 
birthdays , but my five year old ...... 
As you can see I LOVE creating themed parties . 

For the treat sacs I used the 
MFT Die-namics Stax Stitched Rectangle Dies . 
I just die cut them to the size I was going for . 
For the scalloped trim I used the Stitched Scalloped Edged Frames. 

This card is what I had envisioned after lots of 
prayer . I sometimes have so many ideas but end 
up with a crafty mental block . 
This was not the time to have my crafty mojo pull a disappearing act !! 
I prayed and prayed and I can tell you with all honesty 
that these all came together TODAY !!! 
Yes .... Talk about last minute !! 

I can't begin to tell you how grateful I was as I finished each section <3 . 

Lots of MFT goodies were used to create the interactive 
areas of this card . 

I truly hope you enjoy the card and set I created to share with you today <3 .
I thank you so much for taking the time to stop by !
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day !
