Moon Cards

This set of cards will be a holiday gift for my nurse, who likes blue and moons.

The image for this first card is embossed in detail silver and then layered on brushed silver cardstock, which is then layered on printed paper on a card base of Night of Navy.

I used the same image on this next one, only this time embossed in Silver Fire Opal. Layers are Whisper White, Night of Navy, and printed paper.

Soft Sky is the card base for the following card, with an image embossed in Gold Fire Opal layered on Night of Navy. I pulled out my southwest corner punch and created a frame for the image with gold string.

This next card turned out really cool-looking in real life, but as usual the photo doesn't do it justice. Images are stamped in Brilliant Blue and layered on Ballet Blue on top of a Brilliant Blue base. I used a spiral border stamp to create a background, and used Stickles to fill in the gaps between the rows.

This photo turned out rather dark, so you can't see how the image stamped in Craft Whisper White pops out against the background. Cardstock includes Night of Navy, Ballet Blue, and Brilliant Blue all layered on Whisper White cardstock. (I don't often think to use white as a card base!) Gold string provides a little interest.

I like the next card for its simplicity. I used the Aida Cloth background stamp with VersaMark on Ballet Blue, and layered the images in Brilliant Blue and Night of Navy. There's gold string on the spine for accent.

The card base for this next one is Brushed Silver. Even though the image is embossed in Detail Silver and looks quite stunning in person, the picture blurs it a bit. Layers of printed paper, Night of Navy, and Brushed Silver are quite striking, and the paper pierced corner adds a nice touch.

Here's a simple moon image embossed in Silver Fire Opal and layered on Night of Navy with printed paper. I added a silver star brad for accent.

I used Blue Bayou and Soft Sky for the following card, and accented with paper piercing and silver brads.

Here's another super simple Night of Navy card with layers of Soft Sky. The image is embossed in Gold Fire Opal, and I made use of my corner rounder punch.
