Week 10: Do You Stack Up - Layers

This week's challenge at DYSU is:

I used a cute spaceship from Limited Runs Digis who is one of our sponsors this week.  I really wanted the spaceship to be the focal point so I used the whole thing as the card! Popped some little monsters inside and layered it up so you can see them inside when you lift up the top flap!

I think you can see some of the layers here. I paper pieced the whole thing, including the monsters.

You can see those little critters better here.

And here is a peak at the inside. I know that technically they should be aliens as they are in a spaceship, but this is what I had to hand and I think they look cute in it!

I printed one in reverse for the back of the card and stamped some extra 'monsters/aliens' for the birthday boy or girl to colour in, cut out and play with!

As I said one of the sponsors is Limited Runs Digis and the other one is Lily of the Valley.

There are some great prizes up for grabs so head on over and load up your layered creation at DYSU.
