Today I’m sharing the birthday card I made for my hubby. We have two cats: Grumpy is his cat and Sakura is mine. I wanted us to be represented by our cats in this card.
So the idea behind this card is that some aliens are abducting Grumpy while she is sleeping! I inked a piece of watercolor paper with Distress inks and flickered some water, Perfect Pearls and white paint to get a starry sky. I stamped the images from Lawn Fawn “Beam Me Up” and “Meow You Doin’” stamp sets and colored everything with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I used coordinating dies to die cut the images from “Beam Me Up”, and fussy cut the ones from “Meow You Doin’”.
The spaceship beam is heat embossed with WOW Clear Hologram Sparkle embossing powder.
I used Lawn Fawn “Outside in Stitched Scalloped Circles” dies to die cut a window on the card base and the same die to die cut a piece of black cardstock I had previously die cut with Lawn Fawn “Forest border” dies. I used the MISTI to stamp the sentiment curved into the card front.
When we open the card, we have a pop-up scene: the aliens have taken Grumpy to a party in the moon that Sakura had organized to celebrate her birthday!! 🙂
All the images are colored with the same markers. Here I also used Lawn Fawn “Out Of This World” stamps and dies and “Let’s Bokeh” stamps to make the space helmet for my cats.
For the galaxy background, I blended Distress inks on Bristol paper and flickered some water, Perfect Pearls, and white paint. For the moon ground, I used Pumice Stone Distress ink and spritzed some water. I used Lawn Fawn “Everyday Pop-ups” dies to pop up the moon hills, which are die cut with Lawn Fawn “Stitched Hillside Borders” dies. I also used acetate pieces to make some pop-up elements for Grumpy and Sakura, who is floating in the space.
I looooove this card! It turned out just as I had imagined. Hope you like it too!!!
Have a nice day and thanks for stopping by!!
