The (Punch Art) Aliens Are Coming!

My card for today was actually made for a Facebook hop I participated in last night!  The theme was kids’ cards, and I decided to go with aliens, as Max and Luca are obsessed with space right now!  Luca LOVES Star Wars and Max loves Power Rangers in Space!  I was actually scrolling through Pinterest and found a cute picture of some aliens, and decided that I would base mine on the picture.  Here’s what the original picture looked like:

 

To make this card, I used an assortment of punches and framelits.  I will list exactly what I used for each below.

For the orange alien with the purple hair:

  • Layering Ovals Framelits
  • Fox Builder Punch (for the hair)
  • 1/2 inch circle punch
  • Cookie Cutter Builder Punch

For the green alien:

  • Layering Ovals Framelits
  • Fox Builder Punch (for the horns)
  • 1/2 inch circle punch
  • Cookie Cutter Builder Punch

For the blue alien:

  • 1 inch circle punch
  • 1/2 inch circle punch
  • Cookie Cutter Builder Punch

All of the legs were free cut using paper snips, and all the feet are just 1/2 inch circle punch outs cut in half!

 

 

The star print background is from the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper.  To create the sentiment, I used the Labeler Alphabet stamp set.  I stamped each letter in  Basic Gray ink and then hand trimmed them with Paper Snips.  They are adhered to the card with Mini Glue Dots!

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Night of Navy cardstock card base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

DSP background layer:  4 x 5-1/4 inches

Orange Alien:  2-3/8 x 1-1/2 inches  (Oval for body measures 7/8 x 1-3/4 inches)

Green Alien:  2-1/4 x 1-3/4 inches  (Oval for body measures 1 x 2 inches)

Blue Alien:  1-1/2 x 3 inches  (Circle for body measures 1 inch in diameter)

Stamped letters:  3/8 x 3/8 inch (approximate)

 

The card is finished with some Wink of Stella on the purple hair, as well as some silver metallic stars from the Twinkle Adhesive Backed Sequins!  Also, the mouth on each alien was hand drawn with a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.

Punch art cards take a little longer to make, but they are so much fun to create!  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!  Thanks for stopping by today!
