Delightful Thursday at Digital Delights – Alien theme birthday card

It's another Delightful Thursday at Digital Delights; click on over to see what projects DT members have to share with you today. My card features the Birthday Alien Andy and Happy Birthday sentiment stamps.

This card is for my brother. I thought he'd appreciate the Alien theme (just because it's different, okay, no reflection on him personally). For the card base I used Presscut's Scalloped Semi-circle die, although I don't believe I'm using the die the way it's originally intended. If you click on the photos for this link, it shows what I'm using as the back (where I've put my greetings), as the front. Personally, I think it's much more impressive reversed.

To give it more 'guy-ness' I added Sizzix gearhead dies for embellishment; they match the Bo Bunny On the Go Gears paper. I liked the way the Sizzix Drip Edge die looked the first time I used this card die (i.e. this Halloween card) so I decided to use it again here. Ribbon wouldn't really work with this design, so I used Tactile Studio's digital Striped Ribbons 2 instead. Enamel dots give some texture to the stamp, but in no way impede the card's flat folding design (once folded it fits in a normal card sized envelope and is no problem at all to mail).

  7. What a 'delightful' card! The little alien is adorable. The colors are fresh and fun.

  8. Oh, Shani! Fabulous! I love the colors you put together, the dies you chose to use including the gears and the drips with that image! Your coloring of that Alien is delightful and the paper choice is spot on for that theme and the colors! Well done my friend! I have the Halloween version... I may be biased, but I must say I really like that card shape too.
