Blast Off! Card by Louise Forsyth

My oldest son turns 8 next month and thought the Blast Off collection was perfect to make him a card for his birthday.

I started by cutting my Blast Off! Outer Space panel to size and then cut down a piece of coredinations  cardstock for the base.  Next I chose which images I wanted to use out of the Blast Off! Collectables pack.   I raised the Martian with some pop dots to make him stand out from the base a bit....


Next I cut some Spellbinders Shape Gold Sentiments for the "Happy Birthday"  from the coredinations cardstock by running it through my cuttlebug. I sanded the raised parts to make the words standout.....


I cut an 8 out on my Cricut using Opposites Attract cartridge. You can see a piece of washi on one of the layers as my mat is becoming a bit worse for wear so I use tape to keep the cardstock on the mat when the machine is cutting....


I added a button and Bakers Twine to finish the card and it turned out not too bad for a quick and easy card :)



Thanks loads for looking :)
Lou
