I Love You To The Moon And Back Space Card

Hi everyone, Taheerah here wishing you a happy Saturday!

Space has always been my one true love. Seriously, from the science books I read as a kid, through to watching Star Trek, to what I studied at university, it's always been something I've always been fascinated in!

I mentioned Star Trek and of course one of the most famous phrases and special effects is the reference to warp speed and the trailing star field that results. So naturally I love recreating that look in cards! Beforehand doing that was confined to a couple of stamp sets or perhaps creating the effect myself. The Altenew Warp Speed Stencil changed all that:

Not only does this card look out of this world, but it was a cinch to create too!

I laid my stencil over my black card base and spritzed it with an iridescent silver glimmer mist, splattered on some white mist and bam! Instant warped star field!

I heat embossed the sentiment from the WPlus9 Little Dreamers stamp set (a must-have set!) and then trimmed the sentiment in half. I felt that having the sentiment in two strips, one on either side and top and bottom, helped convey the sense of movement too!

I'd love to hear what you think of this card. Is there someone you know who'd love to receive it? Thanks for stopping by!
