My son has a party to attend this upcoming weekend and I wanted to make a fun and cool card for the birthday boy. Now, I couldn’t let a Stamping 411 sketch go unused so I used that as my starting point.
The base of this card is Ballet Blue and I’ve layered it with Basic Gray and then Pumpkin Pie.
Next, I made a central panel of Basic Black. I used various circle punches to make little pinhole star holes and backed it with Bashful Blue cardstock. I then made a moon out of Basic Gray cardstock. I used the 3-Tier Cake die and my Sizzix Big Shot to cut the various sized holes and then used various circle punches to make the craters. I then sponged each layer with Basic Black ink and adhered together using dimensionals.
I stamped the rocket from Pun Fun with Jet Black Staz On on Confetti White cardstock and watercoloured it with coordinating colours. I then cut out the Swirl Sizzlet with some Sahara Sand cardstock as the jet stream and adhered behind the rocket.
So what else did I do? I added a layer of Green Galore cardstock. On the top, I used the Pinking Hearts border punch to get the jagged edge look. I adhered the rocket/moon layer to the Green Galore and then added a tie of Basic Black grosgrain.
At the top, I added two Summer Sun stars – one from the small star punch and the other from the Stars #2 Sizzix Die.
Lastly, I added a sentiment on the bottom. I punched it out on some Summer Sun cardstock with the Word Window punch. I then backed it with a small oval of Pumpkin Pie and then a Modern Label in Basic Gray.
Stop by in a day or so to see the gift packaging I made to go with this card!
