Hi, it's Kim from Katydid Cards and today I'm working with one of the new releases; Aliens. 

The set includes two sizes of just made me think of a Mr. & Mrs. Martian and from there the idea for my card came to me immediately.


I did a search for free outer space images and came upon this was the perfect background for my spaceship. I sprayed it liberally with Shimmer Spritz before adding it to my card base of Sweet Sugarplum.

The spaceship was cut using a file purchased in the Silhouette store.  I cut several planets in complementary colors and placed them strategically around the spaceship, being sure to leave space for the "conversation" taking place.  Does it sound familiar to you?

I thought the sentiment inside was just perfect and so true...and it makes me smile.   Here's a picture of it, matted on another panel of the outer space image.

That's it for this card.  I imagine this ET had better phone home to let the family know they're going to be late ;-)

Who provided the inspiration for these cards?  Katy did!


  1. Your background looks great with those colors. Fun brads.

  2. Love it!!! great job on using those awesome brads.
