I really wanted to create a sense of being “out of this world” so I knew this page about Space Mountain had to have lots of stars and planets as my embellishments. The 8-point starbursts were created with a lever punch. The thin-line circles with stars as well as the layers of the planets are cut using metal dies. My favorite element has most definitely got to be the big Space Mountain image that I cut using my electronic cutter. The shape is just so iconic and instantly recognizable, so I really wanted to use it on my page as big as possible. In fact I love it so much that I want to share it with you! You can find it HERE. Its FREE and ready to download to use on your own projects.
The silhouette image is raised off the page slightly using foam mounting tape for a bit more dimension. Cut files like this that have thinner lines are best used as larger images because if they are sized too small, the cutting machine blade tends to “catch” and tear the paper.
I always use a little Mickey somewhere on my page, and the mickey punched from silver glitter paper was the perfect size to fit inside the ride vehicle. I think he looks like he just hopped in and is headed for a spin among the stars!
I really enjoyed adapting this silhouette image to use as a background, and there are several more I can’t wait to try that can be found in the Disney Creative Co. Cut File Library HERE with more images being added weekly.
