Peek-a-boo Window Outer Space Card with Deco Foil

I started with an A2 white cardstock panel and used blending brushes to create my background. These colors blend together beautifully to add that purple layer to the pink and blue.

I spritzed the panel with water, blotted it dry, and flicked watered down ink in both colors. After that dried, I spread transfer gel Blanco through the pow stencil and set it aside to dry while I worked on coloring and cutting out my images.

Once my laminator was heated up and the panel was dry, I layered it with silver shattered glass deco foil in a parchment paper transfer sheet and ran it through. I’m not sure what I’ll do with that negative piece yet but I sure kept it because it looks SO COOL!

Next, I used my Ultra Bond glue pen to adhere the foiled panel to a card base. Then I used my images as guides while I decided where to cut my window hole. Once it was decided I used a circle die, opened my card so it only cut through the front panel, and ran it through the die cutter.

Then I used a blending brush and the midnight snack ink to blend a shadow behind the fun astronaut and glued him in place. Then I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment on black cardstock and trimmed it into a strip. I added foam squares to my images and sentiment strip and popped them all in place.

For finishing touches I added a black glaze pen to the astronaut’s eyes unicorn Stickles to the rocket ship flames and glossy accents to the moon craters and window of the rocket ship.

Isn’t this card so much fun! And there’s plenty of room on the left half of the inside to write a personal message before sending it off!

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
