…you’ll be up to your armpits in Martians

I’ve got a cute card to share featuring a number of stamps from the Alien Invasion set by Gerda Steiner Designs.

This card is for a male friend and I was struggling a bit for idea until I saw the current theme at C.R.A.F.T. is aliens or fantasy.  This Gerda Steiner set is fairly new in my stash so I actually remembered I had them and could even find them!  The sentiment and banner are from the set too, I used it as this card will be signed by a few of us and we are always using any excuse for getting together and eating cake.

My card follows the sketch over at CAS-ual Fridays, I just shifted the sentiment element down so it didn’t obscure the images I used.  I cut the middle rectangle element but only embossed the other two so I could play along at Less is More for their dry embossing challenge.
