Here is the first card that I've made for my Dad for Father's Day. I got this great October Afternoon Rocket Age paper pad at the Scrapbook Expo for only $4.00! I was very excited because I'd been wanting this particular pad for a while now.
First, I made a little astronaut out of paper punches. I used the Cuttlebug Red Tag Sale Alphabet to cut the letters out. I cut each letter out three times and layered them to get a "chipboard" alphabet effect.
For the second panel of my card. I cut out the planets with the circle Nestabilities. The rockets are a Quickutz die. All pieces are layered with some foam tape. My Dad's cat or as he puts it, "my little brother", is named Buzz, after Buzz Aldrin. I wanted to add Buzz to the card, so I cut a cat out using a Quickutz Die. I sponged a little white ink around the "fur" to try and show his white tips on his fur. Since I used some vellum to make the astronaut's helmet, I thought Buzz needed a helmet, too. But, it kind of looks like he is wearing a cone, or as we like to say, the cone of shame! The sentiment is computer generated.
For the final panel of the card, I cut out some stars using a My Favorite Things Die-Namics and some foam tape. Since, I'm loving using the Papertrey Ink Just The Ticket Die/Stamp set, I used it to "sign" my name.
