I Love You To The Moon and Back Card

Dad – Love you…

by Roni Johnson


I’ve got a fun – out of this world – card for Dad this Father’s Day. You too can create this celestial card for dad using Imagine Crafts Delicata Inks paired with Seth Apter dies and embossing folders.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 30 minutes + dry time



Step 1

Rub Black Shimmer Delicata ink inside the Seth Apter Laser Beams embossing folder.


Step 2

Insert a 4 x 5.25” piece of grey cardstock into the embossing folder and run it through your die machine. The cardstock will now shimmer like the night sky.


Step 3

Carefully rub the Silvery Shimmer over the tops of the embossed “laser beams”. This will add even more sparkle. Set aside to dry. Also coat a scrap of white cardstock with the Silvery Shimmer Delicata ink and let dry.


Step 4

Die cut a moon from the silver paper using the circle from the Seth Apter “Splatter Proof” die set.


Step 5

Die-cut two splatters from the same die set from white or grey cardstock. Ink one splatter with Celestial Copper and the other using Golden Glitz Delicata ink using a sponge dauber.


Step 6

Once the black panel has dried, spritz Wedding Dress irRESISTible Texture Spray over the panel. This will create the illusion of stars in the sky. Let dry.


Step 7

Sponge White Shimmer Delicata ink around the edge of a grey card base. Stamp sentiment on vellum using Black Shimmer ink. Ink “DAD” chipboard letters using Silvery Shimmer ink.

Step 8

Mount black panel on the inked card base; mount the splatters, chipboard letters and sentiment to the card base. Adhere the moon to the card using double stick foam tape.
