Close to My Heart Artfully Sent Rocket Ship Birthday Card

I needed a special card for a very special birthday.  My grandson, AJ, was having a 13th birthday - a big milestone indeed.  He is now a teenager.

So I went into Cricut Design Space and found the perfect card design in our new cartridge, Artfully Sent.  It can be found in the Artfully Sent Handbook, pg 28,   Sentiment.  

I love the star patterned paper for this card.  Doesn't it just fit?  It is from our Chalk it Up paper pack. I used Canary cardstock for the inside of the card and it shows through in the sentiment.  I placed a piece of Lagoon cardstock and Cranberry cardstock behind the blast and the birthday to make them stand out.  Then I drew in the rest of the letters with my Marvy Uchida LePen Journaling Pen.

I LOVE Design Space!  I was able to cut the rocket ship out by itself in Whisper cardstock.  I used the "Hide Contour" button to hide the rest of the card and save paper.  I did the same with the flame coming out of the rocket.  I used our wonderful Sunset patterned paper from Scaredy Cat.  And then I popped the Rocket up with some 3D Foam Tape to add a little pizzaz!!!

I decorated the inside of the card with our stamp set, Robot Family (C1583).  You just cannot give a naked card!

I added a black star and 2 white stars that I colored blue with our Turquoise Blue (B68) ShinHan alcohol marker.

I had so much fun making this card that I want to make it easy for you to create it as well.  Here is the Design Space File for this card:  https://us.cricut.com/design/#/canvas/project/21560196

You need to have the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge in order to cut this card.  You can purchase it here.
