Alien bd card with lots of embossing!

This was fun creating even though i think it look better in person than my pic taking... My little guy went to a birthday party who was turning 4!  Boys will be Boys Cricut cartridge was used. Cut at 4in on the Expression and designed on the Gypsy.  Papers used are CTMH and a few scraps.  Inks & sanding is CTMH.  googly eyes are from Micheal's.    Embossing folders used are: Tiny bubbles (pc) for the body - Spots & dots (pc)  for his belly, in which looks better in person. the border of the card is from Cricut Mini Monsters set.  I sanded the aliens body which looks really cool!    #4 is cut from Boys will be Boys cartridge!
can you see the layers of  his eyes. Again - my picture taking could have been better but i was in a hurry.  He looks cool with the 3d effect.  Kaiden, the birthday boy thought he was COOL!!


  1. What an adorable alien! I love the embossing both on him and the background! What a fun card and perfect for a little boy!! :)


  2. Hey Doris -
    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog, I always love to see new faces! I can't believe you have so many different cricut machines, I hope you're never stuck in a situation where none of them work! Have you played with the Imagine much? It looks like so much fun to have. I really love the emboss technique on your little alien :)

  3. Hi Doris

    This is just sooo adorable! Love the embossing you did!
    Thanks for commenting on my blog about the corner bookmark, yes the book mark can/will fit on 1 or more pages, the one I made for the post I added pop dots, so the book did not close flat like it normally does, but I have made a few of these that are not embellished with pop dots and they do lay flat as they should, I will send you a pic I took of the bookmark with the book closed so you can see.
    I am no following your blog.

  4. He is cool and absolutely adorable!
