Hope everyone had a good weekend, I sure did! Just spent time with the family relaxing out by our pool, getting a little sun and reading a good book! Ahhhh, so relaxing!!
I don't do boyish cards very often so I decided to let my 3 year old son choose an image to make a card for Daddy. This is digi stamp is To The Moon from 2 Cute Rubber Stamps. Isn't this little guy and his pup adorable? My son calls him Astro Boy!! :)
I knew right away that I didn't want to use blue, yellow or red cardstock, that was just too expected on a spaceship card. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on a shimmery ivory cardstock for the moon and used pop up dots on the actual image to give it dimension. And my favorite part is that is got to use a few of the little star brads that I've had for oh say 5 years or more!! :) I crinkled up a tiny piece of scrap yellow vellum to create the flame and then cut it up. I then used an orange Copic marker to make a few stray marks on the vellum and I just couldn't help myself...I also applied a touch of Shimmerz to it. Glossy Accents on their helmets and rocket window and a white gel pen to create some stars. Lots of cute touches but still perfect for a guy.
For the first time ever, I also finished the inside of the card.
This would make a PERFECT Father's Day card!!!
