Magnolia Down Under Challenge # 15

Hello again,

I'm back with another entry for our Magnolia Down Under Challenge.

This week's theme is 'All about a Boy' so this is a chance for Edwin to star !

I wanted to make a bright and vibrant card as the only image I have of poor little Edwin is this one which looks a little serious. LOL

Whilst sorting through my many containers of patterned papers, I found this great one from Alison Ellis. It was one of a few in a range depicting images from Outer Space and was perfect for this card as most boys dream of rockets and spaceships and aspire to being astronauts !

Here is the card I made.

I layered the glittery paper onto white, blue and then red cardstock and cut out some of the Space images and attached them with 3D foam dots to the background paper.

I embossed a piece of red card and cut out a half circle for the 'planet' that Edwin is sitting on.

He and the planet were also attached to the paper with 3D foam dots.

To finish off the card, I printed out the Boy Zone greeting from my computer onto white card which was then punched out with an oval punch. This was adhered to a larger, embossed oval of red card and a silver frame was attached over the greeting with two silver brads.

As the paper and images already had glitter on them, I didn't need to do anything else to this card.

I think Edwin is having a wonderful time up there in space among the stars, watching all those rockets and spaceships whizzing by him!
