Twofer Card Challenge #30 August, 2020 Sun/Moon - I Love You/Sweet Baby


I am playing at the Twofer Card Challenge today were the theme is Sun/Moon.  I made a Baby card and one that could be given as a Valentine, Wedding, Anniversary or just because. 

For the first card I Die cut the front panel and then mounted on Fun Foam.  I punch out the Moon from Glimmer card and sponged the background with Distress Inks and then added some splatters with water, watered down White Craft ink and Silver Delicata Ink.  The Sentiment is stamped and the word Moon is a Die cut.  I ran the Fun Foam through twice turning it over and put it through the Big Shot again and it came out very cleanly to my surprise. The inside is blank at the moment until I decide which occasion I want to use it for.

For the second card I embossed the Bashful Blue Mat with the Stars E/Folder and then punched out the pieces for the Baby Mobile.  I attached them with dimensionals and Silver Thread to the Moon.  The Sentiment was stamped, punched and then matted with two Navy punched out pieces to create a border.  I cut them in half and attached them to the Whisper White piece.

With thanks to the Design Team these two cards received an Honorable Mention.

Thanks for dropping by today, lovely to see you here.

  1. That's such a magical moon, Susan ... especially all shimmery and glimmery! It's adorable with those sparkly little baby icons against all that yummy texture on your new baby card! You created such depth with your window scene ... what a cool background sky to 'hang' your moon in ... so atmospheric! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer! Anita :)

  2. You've made the most charming cards, Susan! I just love the little moon mobile you made on your sweet baby card! The star e/f adds great interest and dimension. And, wow, your design with the kitties on the window sill looking out is incredible! I love the schparkly night sky and glittery moon. The white branches make me think it's a beautiful winter night! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #30! Keep well! Hugs, Darnell

  3. Awesome Twofers, Sue! Love that moon and how it glimmers! The kitties seem to like it too! The baby mobile is adorable! Two creative cards, my friend!

  4. Wonderful twofer, Susan! Your baby mobile is so clever and charming! I love the embossed star background with it too! Those cats looking at the moon really reflect the sentiment perfectly, and I love the contrast of the night sky with the white! Thanks for joining in the fun with us at the Twofer Card Challenge!

  5. What a fabulous idea to create a baby mobile, Susan - love it!! And I love the moon in the window for the kitties too!!
