Are you guys getting tired of me posting valentine cards yet? Yes? No? Well, I've got one more card to show you. I decided to make something a little less traditional, a space themed card. The inspiration came from my son's super ball which reminded me of the planet Jupiter. It's hard to see but the super ball is actually embedded in the paper. Scroll down below to see the how-to.
Black Card Stock
Gel Pens - I used Elmer's metallic gel pens
Cut out any size heart. Now you will need to cut a hole for the super ball. I made the hole slightly smaller than the circumference of the ball. I recommend cutting a hole out on a different piece of card stock. Once you get the right size, use that as a template to trace onto your heart. Cut out hole with x-acto knife.
Decorate your heart anyway you like with gel pens. This part of the craft is easy for children to do.
Last, place the super ball into the hole you cut out. It holds well on its own so there's no need for tape.
