Birthday in Space

My card today features one of my favourite stamp sets from last year – Lawn Fawn Out of this World.

I’d made some galaxy backgrounds a while back and still have a few left, so began by diecutting a circle of galaxy for my card.

I then die cut a larger scalloped circle from white card, and blended on some twisted citron distress oxide ink. I layered the circles on to a card base, using some foam tape behind the galaxy layer.

I stamped a greeting from the Lawn Fawn Out of this World stamp set directly onto the card base.

Next, I stamped, coloured, and cut out some images from the stamp set. I used colours for the planets to match the astronaut’s space suit, which helps to tie everything together.

I added the three planets to the card with some tape, then the astronaut with some foam tape so he stood out a bit more.

I die cut a number, from the C&9th Double Cut Numbers, to add to one of the planets, then finished the card with some small die cut stars.
