"Astronaut" Birthday Card

This card was created for nephew's tenth birthday! I'm also linking up with Birthday Sundaes Challenge #5 - Anything Goes

The base card and envelope are cut from the Wild Card Cricut Cartridge at 6.25" and 6" respectively. 

I hand cut two layers; one for the front of the card and one to use as a liner on the inside of the card. The top layer is embossed with the Cuttlebug Divine Swirls embossing folder. I hand cut a second piece of gray cardstock, punched it with the Fiskars Threading Water border punch and embossed with the Cuttlebug Tiny Mosaic embossing folder.

The astronaut is cut from the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge at 4". The face is stamped with a Peachy Keen Everyday Character Face stamp. 

The flag is cut from the Create a Critter cartridge at 3".

Finally, I cut a few planets from the Everyday Paper Doll cartridge to finish the inside of card and edge the entire project with faux stitching. 

Products used:
Cricut cartridges: Wild Card, Everyday Paper Dolls, Create a Critter
Cuttlebug Embossing Folders: Divine Swirls and Tiny Mosaic
Fiskars Threading Water Border Punch
Peachy Keen Everyday Character Face Stamps
Paper: Recollections cardstock
