Apollo Rocket of Love

I-Team member Sonja here with an extra special take on the 3D rocket from the 'Outta this World' file. 

Originally I started out making this for my husband for Valentine's day. However, since I told him I didn't want anything, he told me if I made him anything he would throw it away. Mainly I think he was at a loss. If I surprised him with something, he thought he would be in trouble. He did not, however, say anything about our anniversary!

 The 'Apollo Rocket of Love' sentiment comes from one of his favorite TV shows and was the inspiration for the entire project. 

For the card:

For the card, I embossed the wings with a heart sleeve and the bottom with a swirly sleeve. The center of both rockets (star foil) is from Rinea Foil.

I decided to add brads and a frame around the two windows just for added texture, as well as pop up tabs for the hearts. 


And here is the main event....

 This rocket is spectacular in any color, but for some reason gold came to mind. I am happy that I decided to do the Rinea Foil in the middle of each rocket to help break up and add texture to the gold. The brads just make it look even better!

The entire rocket is gold with accents of gold brads. I wanted to put gold candies inside, but I ran out of time. 

When he finally remembered it was our anniversary, I gave it to him. He gently placed it in the garbage can as a joke (twice), but he loves it I think. Stubborn man is worse than a mule!

  1. WOW! Look at all that gold! And the details are awesome. Great job!

    1. Yeah I wasn't sure if all the gold together would work, but I liked the outcome!

  2. Wow!! That is one shiney rocket ship, love the gold!! Brads are a nice touch!!! Awesome work Sonja!

    1. $15 for 6 sheets of paper. Ridiculous price, but loved the end results. I wasn't so sure about doing it all one color, but I am glad I stuck with it.

  3. Really remarkable presentation and transformation with your wonderful vision and special touches. I would expect to hear a metallic ping if it were knocked! Love it, just amazing!

    1. Thank you Jodi! I am glad it worked out all being one color!

  4. WOW!! Seriuosly this is WAY WAY awesome. Love the gold!!
