Papertrey Ink Anniversary Fun ~ Day 10 ~ Movers & Shakers

This will be a quickie post so that I can get back to my sweeties!  If you haven't already visited the Papertrey Ink site, they are still celebrating their 5th anniversary!  Each day has been a new challenge (along with killer prizes:).  Today PTI introduced some really neat dies for interactive cards (think zippers, pull-out tabs, etc.).  And today's challenge is to create your own interactive card.  
I've made a few interactive cards, but I don't have any special tools for the job.  As you can see for this card, I just used my trusty circle dies. {The picture above was taken before I attached the outer frame to the card base (sorry for the blurriness).}  The inner circle and the outer frame are popped up on foam dots allowing the spaceship to move around the groove.  Take away tip: Use a button instead of a cardstock circle to anchor the moving item because they're smoother and tend to slide better.  
I finished it off with a little bit of stickle bling and a spacey sentiment!  Looks complicated, but really super easy:)  Hope you try it! 
Thanks for looking!

  5. This is really clever. I never thought to make a circle--but a rocket circling planet earth is absolute genius.

  14. This is stellar! Love your tip to use a button. That's way better than a coin since you're right it will slide much better.
