Fun & Fast Notes Birthday Rocket Card

I saw a card like this done by Lori. I'm not clear on her website but on her photo it read "image by Starving Hers had the moon and on the moon was a creature and the words that went across the top read "wish you were here." I had copied this card a long time ago and was always meaning to make one like it. I didn't have a creature for the moon but I did have a rocket ship and I did have a star punch and this is what I came up with.

The base layer of the card is Bashful Blue. I layered a piece of Ballet Blue on top of it. I cut a circle for the moon and then I cut that circle in half. I punched holes in it to represent craters. On Lori's card she didn't have as many craters. I got a bit carried away but I wasn't into copying her card exactly.

After punching the holes in the half circle I set it in place on top of the other half using Dimensionals.

The rocket ship is from the Stampin' Up! "Fun & Fast Notes" set. I cut it out and colored it in using markers. I set it in place on top of the moon using Dimensionals.

I stamped the words on. They came from the "Eat Cake" set. And I punched out 5 stars and taped them in place. I overlapped a few and trimmed the edges.

I like how this card turned out too. It's the moon that is the cute part to me. I liked it on Lori's card and I like it on this one! This was a fun and easy card to make. And this card could be used not only for a birthday card but also for an invitation to the birthday party!!!

Isn't it adorable? As with all of my photos on this blog, click on them to see a closer view.

What an adorable card! I'm definitely going to save this as inspiration. I have the Greeting Farm astronaut Ian stamp, and I even have some vintage space ship stamps that I think belonged to my grandparents, although I have no idea why they had them. Anyhow, thanks for sharing!
