Kay’s Blog Takeover 2012 Day 3

Hello! Today is the third of five posts from my 17-year-old-step-daugther, Kay. (You can find out more about this HERE.) Enjoy…

Hello my lovely minions – er, that is, blog readers.

Today’s card is pretty adorable, if I do say so myself. It features a funny alien and the best greeting off all time, along with a rather awesome row of planets. I dedicate this card to those of you who have a male friend. Oh, wait. That is everyone!

And without further ado, let’s get started!

Today? Today I am going to shake things up and list the steps…

Step 1: Stamp the rocket, the alien, and the three planets (3 times each) onto Neenah white cardstock using Memento Black Ink.
Step 2: Using Copics Markers, color in all of the above, and meticulously cut all of them out. Set aside.
Step 3: Cut out a piece of the Amy Tangerine paper (the black and white chevron) to fit on half of the card, and – using adhesive – attach it to a green card.
Step 4: Attach the planets to the card using foam adhesive. To make it more interesting, use the foam adhesive to also put the planets on in varying levels. You can use Stickles here to embellish the planets. Then, attach the rocket to the Amy Tangerine chevron paper. Embellish with Stickles.
Step 5: Attach the little alien to the top of the planets using adhesive… on whatever planet you want. Embellish eyes with Stickles.
Step 6: Using a red Copics Marker, make the red lines that go behind the space ship, and cover with a line of stickles.
Step 7: Stamp the greeting – “Get Better in Warp Speed” directly on the car.

And voila, you’re done!
Before I go, here are some words of wisdom that I leave you with: Flying is learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.

Fly well, my minions.
