You Are Outta This World...

Just a quick card for you today using files from Fleurette Bloom. She came out with a really cute space themed kit the other week, and this is the first I got to play with it a bit. 

I used on the rocket ship file that's in with the card.  I separated out all the different layers. Then I started to fill them with digital files, but wasn't liking it so much. So I looked in the stash or real papers I had on hand. It is a paper pack by Carta Bella called Rough & Tumble. It has a nice vintage feel making this kind of a retro feeling rocket. I love the muted tones.

Told looks retro to me, anyway. I LOVE the kraft paper in this kit. It;s that perfect color of kraft. I wrapped twine around the two top layers, then used foam squares to attach it to the card base. 

Just a closer look at the details of this paper. Also, you pick up on the bit of texture to this paper. If you have never used Carta must! It is a VERY heavy weight of cardstock...I love it! The sentiment is from a Peachy Keen stamp set. I'll list it at the bottom of this post.

Even more close up...hard to see, but I added Wink of Stella to the flames, the gap in the dotted paper...that bit of gold, and to the very tiny circles around the windows.

So, for the shopping list...

So, there you have it. A very simple card that would be great for boy or man! Gotta love guy cards!
Head over to Fleurette Bloom and get this file for yourself...super cute 3D stuff in there too!
Happy Crafting everyone!
