Cards

Out of this World

This card is for my son’s friend who is having his 6th birthday! I mixed Lawn Fawn and Queen & Co. products to make this shaker card and Ranger Distress Oxides to make the background.

I made the galaxy background a long time ago so I am not sure the colors of Distress Oxides I used but I applied them using an oval blending brush to black card stock. I applied a speckling of VersaMark with Brutus Monroe Milky Way embossing powder and speckled it with white paint. You can see a video tutorial of my methods here. I used Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle die to cut it out.

For the earth, I started with a piece of white card stock cut with a large stitched circle die by Rubbernecker Stamps. I used the Distress Oxide colors Pine Needles, Salty Ocean and Ground Espresso to make rough land and ocean forms. I used a small amount of Brutus Monroe Alabaster white pigment ink for the top to hopefully make it look like the Arctic. I speckled it with white paint for visual interest.

The sentiment is a mix of two Lawn Fawn Sets. “HOPE YOUR DAY IS” is from Reveal Wheel Sentiments and “OUT OF THIS WORLD” is from the set called Out Of This World. I cut the sentiment using Lawn Fawn Extra Sentiment Banners and layered it on top of another banner in solid black.

Lastly, The Rocket is from Queen & Co.’s Space shaker kit and is filled with Queen & Co. ‘Rubble’ style toppings. I used Craft Perfect satin silver card stock for most of the rocket and a sparkly red card stock for the flame.

I accented the card with some iridescent star gems that I’ve had hanging out in my embellishment drawer for a while (so I have no idea where they came from).

Hope you like this one!
