5...4...3...2...1...BLAST OFF

I wanted to make some fun Birthday invitations for my soon to be 4 year old's Birthday party, so I cased a fun "Magic Slider card" from Julie's blog...and she has different measurements for the card (I liked better than the SCS size card)...and she has the link for the Splitcoast version. I first was going to do a train theme...with the train on the front of the card, and then the two ends slide out to make the train longer (clear as mud right?)...couldn't get the stamp set to me in time. I then thought about a rocket ship didn't turn out as cool as I wanted it to be but I am happy with how it turned out...I think my problem was that I didn't have the patience to make the card more elaborate. Love the Amuse rocket stamp though, it is too cute, and am looking forward to using it again on other boys cards :)!
You kind of have to fiddle around with these cards to get the plastic bag part of the card to slide smoothly...otherwise your sliding portions will get stuck and or your card will rip. I suggest making this card when you have a lot of patience, perhaps in the morning hours...when you are fresh and rejuvinated feeling.

Sorry, I haven't posted anything in a few days but I have been busy with receptions of good friends, and taking my middle child to the duty dr. I am hoping to post more this I have several Mother's Day items to make :)!

Happy Stamping :)!
