To the Moon & Back

I always say my kids that I love them to the moon and back.  They love it and so do I, so when I needed to make a birthday card for a special little boy, I decided to use that as my theme and I think I'll use it later for a scrapbook theme too!

So I was totally inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest and got out my punches and started thinking.  Mainly thinking, that's a lot of punches!  Hmm.  Maybe there is an easier way!  Lets try the Cricut using my SCAL software.  Such a treat to have my Cricut working now!!  Firstly I started by making a large basic circle which I cut with the Cricut.  I then used a few of my small circle punches to cut out the 'craters' and sponged with a tiny bit of Crumb Cake ink.  I then adhered to the second circle which was left plain to make the moon!

I then started thinking about my little rocket flying to the moon.  I found a Rocket SVG file (which I can no longer find where I found it - was a freebie thanks to a google search).  Using my Cricut, I cut it from Pumpkin Pie CS and used scraps to make the features of the rockets.  Lots of little circles to adhere! My little rocket is propped up with Dimensionals.

 I've used my Daffodil Delight to make stars for the card and die cut the ric-rac edge from Pear Pizzazz CS.  A little birthday sentiment and the card was done.

This was a great card to make with the kids, they loved sticking all the stars and rocket bits together!

So here's what I used:
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Papers: Basic Black, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie & Pear Pizzazz
Inks: Basic Black
Punches: Circles, stars and hole punch
Big Shot: Ric Rac Die, Cricut & SCAL software
