For today I will be playing along with the Twofer card challenge. Here are my cards for today, enjoy!
|The two cards feature the moon in two completely ways. One is graphic and the other more traditional. The moon was part of the June's My Hero Monthly kit.|
|The two moon diecuts collectively create a graphic design element.|
The sentiment consists of two circle dies offset to look like.... well... a crescent moon.
|I added an adhesive gem between the two elements for separation. Without the gems, it didn't seem to make sense. This was a good way to distinguish the elements.|
|A small pictoral tutorial of how I worked this design. I played around with the design elements and when I found one I like I die-cut a template. This way I could insert the moons in the right place all the time without mess or inconsistency. |
|I found inspiration for this card on Pinterest (DUH! 😉). See here. The aurora intrigued me and thought I would try to CASE the pin I saw. Easy-peasy right? Wrong! This was probably one of the hardest cards I have ever created.|
|Trying to replicate the 'glow' of an aurora and Seeka's card was very challenging. After four tries I think I got it. A bit darker but the glow is there 😎. |
|I didn't want the aurora to be seen through these openings. So, I added some gray cardstock to cover the color behind it.|
This is a wonderful encouragement card and I am giving to a person who made my son a mask for school. His face didn't fit any mask I provided so I asked my neighbor and she agreed. So along with this card, I am giving her nine more as a thank you and I'm slipping some cash in there too.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. Lots of good crafting vibes headed your way. I hope you all have a fantastic day and please stay safe and healthy.
