Cricut to the moon and back card

Hello, friends!

Today, I have a card that I made using the Just Because Cards and Trick or Treat cartridges. Do those cartridges even sound like they go together? Sometimes I end up with weird combinations! 

This particular card was made for my son. He just loves anything space related, so I think he will like this one. Typically masculine valentine cards really challenge me, but this one came together pretty quickly.

I was inspired by a stamp set called To the Moon when making this card. One of the sentiments from the set put a picture in my head. That picture looks a lot like this card. Inspiration, hits me from all over the place sometimes!
The star background is stamped using the Patch of Sky stamp set. I heat embossed it, so the white would really pop. 

If you have a Cricut Explore, here is the file: Cricut to the moon and back card

If you do not have an Explore, here are the sizes:
moon (Trick or Treat) - 2 1/4"
rocket ship (Just Because Cards) - 2 1/4"

Masculine Valentine cards are difficult to make and this one is perfect for your son. Such a cute idea and also love the embossed star background.
