Out of this world birthday

My son's birthday is coming up! I love making cards for my kids because they love getting them so much :) Anyway, one of the things he likes learning about is outerspace. So I thought it would be fun to make a bunch of aliens to wish him a happy birthday.

I stamped out a bunch of the little guys from Clearly Besotted's Out of this World stamp set on Bristol Smooth paper and then colored them in with my tombow markers. After I fussy cut them out, I took some gray cardstock and stamped the Hero Arts Dot Moire background stamp in versamark just to give a little dimension to my card. I adhered the grey cardstock to a white base and then put my little aliens on top. I used some foam tape on the middle guy to make him stick out. To make it a bit more fun, I added googly eyes. The sentiment is from another CB stamp set called Laugh Out Loud.

I put another alien with a present on the inside with the sentiment. I didn't realize until after that he looks like he is trying to keep a laugh in (lol). A couple of little stamps on the envelope and I was done. Googly eyes are awesome!

I am putting this in the Cards in Envy challenge Keep it Simple.
