You're Outta This World

At our local stamp club meeting on the 18th we were given a mystery item to use for a card swap.  This item is great and I actually got my card made for our Feb. 22 meeting!

The item was a little stamped box.  I chose a brown one.

I wanted to make a card that reminded me of our trip to Roswell, NM the first of the month.  Now, isn't this a hoot!!!  The embellishments are from a package called Space Glow Stickers & Gems.

The planet was made using a plate from my kitchen!  I lightly drew the edge on a piece of paper with a pencil, carefully cut it out and debossed it with an embossing folder to look like craters.  The background print was from my stash.

I stamped the alien balloons on colored card stock and used Journey Glaze to give them a shine. I had to hand cut my astronaut and balloons as there are no dies for them but they weren't that difficult. 

I think my card will be totally "out of the box" for this mystery item but I won't know until our meeting.
