Jessica’s Out of This World Birthday Card

We invite you to join us for our current All Things Birthday Challenge! It will be open until Sunday, March 20th at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see your creative birthday ideas! Think outside the birthday card box and show us some fun party decorations, gifts and gift packaging.

Good morning!  Jess here with a card for our current Birthday challenge!  I’ve been needing to stock up on some masculine birthday cards and it’s always good to have a couple belated birthday cards in your stash!

To start I stamped the images from Year Eleven and Out of this World with Versafine and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder.  I colored them with Copic markers and die-cut them with the coordinating dies.  I also added a smiley face to the larger planets!  Then I white embossed the sentiment from Year Eleven onto Black Licorice cardstock.

To create my galaxy background I blended squeezed lemonade, salvaged patina, and dusty concord distress oxide ink randomly onto a mini slimline panel of white cardstock.  Then I covered the majority of the panel with blueprint sketch, chipped sapphire, and black soot distress oxide ink leaving just little hints of the other colors.  Once the panel was dry I splattered it with water, gold metallic paint, white gouache, and watered down liquid stardust!  Finally I added my images and sentiment and then adhered the galaxy to a 3” by 6” mini slimline card base!

And that’s it!  You have one more weekend to get crafty and I can’t wait to see your birthday creations!! 
Thanks so much for stopping by and have an amazing weekend!

Thank you for this amazing inspiration, Jess!


Remember this is the last weekend to share your All Things Birthday challenge entries HERE. We will be back on Monday with another fantastic challenge for you!
