Out of This World

>> Tuesday, December 27, 2011

Hi Everyone,

Are you making plans for the new year yet?  I hope one of them will include joining us for our Thursday challenges that we are hosting here on the blog :)  Since the current challenge is Heat Embossing, I decided to use that technique for the birthday card I needed to make. 

 I used the Starry Background stamped in Versamark and heat set it with gold embossing powder.  Spaceboy Skip is an adorable image for a boy's card and I love the Out of this World Birthday sentiment; It's the perfect match for him and his space friend.  However, to make it fit my card design, I stamped it separately and cut it out attaching it on top of a border made from using the Interlocking Circle stamp.

Here is a close up of the embossed stars, the clear embossing on his space helmet, ribbon and felt button embellishment.  They're mail friendly ;-)

Thanks for dropping by the blog today.  Get those heat guns in gear before our next challenge on this Thursday!

Have a great day,

Janett, the felt buttons are just that...Made from felt. I bought them from the craft store, but you could die cut them from felt as well :)

Your little spaceman is soooo cute! I love the embossed stars and the bright row of buttons. All the textures and colours really catch kids imaginations and will make it a real keepsake. I like how you did the cute sentiment down the side with each word separated.
Thanks for sharing and Happy New Year! :)

Karin, your spaceman card is just too cute! I really like the embossed background on the navy cardstock and how you cut the sentiment apart. This is such a great card for a little boy. Makes me want to order this stamp for my grandson's next birthday!
