To infinity and beyond…

My friend, Sarah, asked if I would make her a card for her nephew for his fourth birthday.  She told me that he loves anything to do with Toy Story, so I made a punch art Buzz Lightyear…

I got the idea from the amazing Ellen Kemper, a fellow Stampin Up demonstrator, who makes fabulous projects using punches from Stampin Up.

I changed a few things on my version.  I used one of the flowers from the boho blossoms punch in place of the slot punch which is now retired, and cut off the surplus petals.  I used half circles for the feet so that they faced forwards, and positioned one of his arms in the air – so he looks like he’s waving 🙂   I followed Ellen’s instructions for the rest.

For the background, I used cardstock in two of the in-colours – poppy parade and concorde crush – for the deep space sky and the red planet.  I punched holes in the planet’s surface using the large oval punch, and popped it up on dimensionals to add depth.

I had great fun making Buzz and I hope Laurence likes his card now that he’s the big 4!

Thanks for dropping by today
