National Craft Month March 3 - Kid Rocket Card

 I created a card for a kiddo at school the other day and finally got all the signatures on it to give it away today so I can post it at last.

I used a piece of white 8.5 x 11 cardstock and folded it in half. I trimmed about 1/2" on one long and one short side. This way it fit inside the first piece without  the edges peeking out. I used my long armed stapler to staple the 2 pieces together.

I used lots of  BoBunny and other rocket stickers. I used a couple of the Graphic 45 double-sided papers from Tuesday Morning. I punched blue bling paper (Archiver's) stars, using a small Marvy punch and randomly added them on the card's front. I pop-dotted some of them and some are glued to the card. I added 4 navy mosaic squares to the front too.

I added a thin strip to the top of the middle card. I cut a second thin strip and folded it to make a square when the card is open. I'm not explaining it very well. I pierced holes in the hanging strip and in the little decorations. I used fishing line to string the decorations so they could hang on the strip.

The blue rectangle of  bling paper from Archiver's on the last page now has a little saying on it.

Our report from the Captain is;
The Crew misses You!

Your Mission is:
To feel better.

Please Report to:
as soon as possible.

The Captain and Crew will
keep you in their thoughts
Till your return.

Captain and the Crew 
of elementary school.

With 4 pages for signatures, the card filled up quickly. Unfortunately, I didn't have an envelope for the card so I slid the card in the clear packaging from the sticker set. The teacher showed the card to the class before they sent it to the kiddo.

Thanks for stopping by.
