To a Super Star - to the moon and back - Astronomy themed 7" x 7" card - Day 148 of my 366 day challenge



To a Super Star - to the moon and back - Astronomy themed 7" x 7" card -
Day 148 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

So for today's challenge, I have used one of the card blanks from the "Gentleman's Journey" card making kit which Hunkydory produced a few months ago to make this 7" x 7" card rather than use it as it was meant to...

To a Super Star - to the moon and back - Astronomy themed 7" x 7" card


The pieces are all die cut and so I separated them and decided which ones I would like to use for this card and eventually chose one of the side panels and the main "telescope" topper and cut the "flaps" of the side panel so it would lay flat.

I also took one of Hunkydory's precut 6" x 6" square panel of gold mirror card (I did cut out another frame from the centre as it seemed a waste to cover it all up) and glued it to the centre of the front of the card. 

**TOP TIP** Use a microfibre cloth to get rid of any dirty marks on the mirror card!

I then glued the "Astronomy" side panel to the left hand edge (leaving a narrow white border around it) and placed the main topper above it using some foam pads.

I also added the "To a Super Star" sentiment on the top right hand corner, this time using a double lot of foam pads so it fitted over the main one and used one of the smaller circle toppers to the top left hand corner.

And there you are - a simple but fun card which you will be able to buy on my website here
