Today we’re celebrating father’s day in Spain and I want to show you the card I made for my dad. I used the new Lawn Fawn “Beam me up” stamp set and coordinating dies. This is my favorite of their last release. I love the aliens!!
For this card, I didn’t use any coloring medium because I thought the aliens would look nice paper pieced. So I stamped the images on Lawn Fawn patterned paper (“Let’s polka in the meadow” collection) with Memento Tuxedo black ink and fussy cut them. As I knew I wanted a dark background, I used coordinating “Beam me up” dies on white cardstock and glued the images to the die-cut pieces to have a white border on my images. I used a silver gel pen to color the flag and the edge of the UFOS and a red pen for the UFOs’ lights and for the little heart on the flag.
For the background, I die cut a piece of patterned paper (Lawn Fawn “Beachside” collection) using Mama Elephant “Peek a frame” dies. For making the hill of the aliens’ planet, I used Lawn Fawn “Stitched ovals” dies and again the same Mama Elephant die to have the stitching detail. I used red because I was thinking about Mars 🙂 Next, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed it on white. The first line of the sentiment is from Lawn Fawn “Dad + Me” stamp set. Once I had this stamp set out, I thought the mustache will look great on the big alien, so I went ahead and stamped it with Memento Tuxedo black ink.
Next, I glued the background panel to a card base and added the red hill. I glued the big alien and the small UFO and used an action wobble for the big UFO. Last, I added the googly eyes to the bigger alien, some Glossy Accents to the lights and the dome of the little UFO, some Nuvo Crystal Drops to the eyes of the smaller alien and a scatter of die-cut stars.
I hope you like my card!! Thanks for stopping by!
