Have a Blast

Here’s my card for this week’s sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I used the sketch to create a cute and whimsical child’s birthday card.

I used the Half-Pint Heroes set from Waltzingmouse Stamps for the design. I adhered a strip of star patterned paper to a light blue card base to create a background. Once that was in place, I added a crescent moon, created with circle punches, and a rocket ship image to the panel using foam tape to represent the sketch’s two round elements. The “have a blast on your big day” sentiment is stamped in the lower right corner of the cardfront in teal ink.

Materials Used:
Half-Pint Heroes stamp set (Waltzingmouse Stamps); white cardstock (Taylored Expressions); Memento Tuxedo Black and Teal Zeal inks (Tsukineko); markers (Copic); Sea Glass cardstock (Avery Elle); Crushed Curry and Blue Bayou cardstock (Stampin’ Up!); My Girl 6x6 paper pad (My Mind’s Eye); clear dome sticker, circle punches (EK Success); foam tape
