Out of This World Boy Birthday Card

Good Morning!

Today is my turn to share a project for inspiration over at Exploring Cricut.  I always need to have birthday cards on hand for kids, and always seem to be short on cards for boys.  With no one specific in mind, I created this one for my stash:
Thank goodness for Cricut's 'Boys Will Be Boys' cartridge!  I love how the cuts on this cartridge have a mat behind them.
I took the liberty to dress up this cut a bit by embossing the black mat, popping the rocket cut out on foam dots, and adding pearls/stickles/glossy accents to the rocket ship to give it some pizzazz! These cuts come together really quickly, and allow for lots of customizing.  It's my go-to cartridge for BOY cards.

I hope everyone has a great day - Thanks for stopping by!
