Hey everyone! I’m up on the Newton’s Nook blog today with this really fun surprise outer space card featuring Cosmic Newton heading out to space and floating among the stars when he gets there! Let’s check it out!
To create this card, I started by taking a white card base, opening it up and using the sky borders die on the bottom to create the front flap. Then I took the cloudy sky stencil and lightly added some blue clouds over the top.
I stamped and colored my images from Cosmic Newton with my copics. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. Next, I took a flag from the Frames & Flags die set and cut it out to stamp my sentiment on it.
Moving to the inside, I took a 4.25×5.5 panel and inked it up with distress inks in peacock feathers, picked raspberry and mustard seed and then went over the whole panel with black soot to create my galaxy background. I spritzed it with water and flicked gold and pearl watercolor on it for a great starry look. Then I adhered my images with liquid glue.
I wanted to continue the sentiment to the inside too, so I cut another flag and heat embossed the second sentiment in white and glued the flag down. Then I took the whole panel and glued it to the inside of my card.
Next, I moved on to finishing touches. On the front, I popped my sentiment flag up with foam squares and added white gel pen accents to the images. Then I took glossy accents and covered the whole window and the bolts on the spaceship. I used crushed pineapple Stickles on the star too.
For the inside images, I just added white gel pen accents and Wink of Stella glitter brush to the planets because I wanted the card to close nice and flat. However, one of the shooting stars peeks out beneath the cloudy border that was die cut so I added the crushed pineapple Stickles to that for fun.
Between outer space and undersea cards, I could be content for life. The backgrounds are so soothing to make and I always love the images so much. I hope you enjoyed today’s card.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
