A Backwards Eclipse Card

Every knows how Eclipse Cards are the biggest rage right now.  I even posted two of them in the last couple of weeks.  I decided that a backwards Eclipse Card might be just as nice.  Normally, you stamp the entire background of a piece of cardstock and then cut out the letters and layer them back using Dimensionals.  This time I cut the letters from Large Letters in a plain piece of Whisper White cardstock and then stamped the letters using the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp set.  The colors I used were Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, Lemon Lime Twist and Daffodil Delight.  Then I pieced the letters back into the piece of Whisper White cardstock that I originally cut the letters out of using Stampin’ Dimentionals.  I love the Eclipse Cards but I love this backwards card too.

The “Happy” sentiment is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous.  I used the stamp that says Happy Birthday but I covered the “Birthday” with tape, inked the stamp and them removed the tape so only the “Happy” was stamped.

Another Eclipse Card

This is the second project we made at our monthly stamp club meeting.  It is called an Eclipse Card and is extremely popular right now.  I had a couple of members request to make this because they have seen them everywhere.  They are super easy to make.  You either use Designer Series Paper for the background or stamp a background.  Then you cut out a word and pop up the letters using Mini Dimensionals.

For the background we used the Designer Series Paper from the 2017 Holiday Catalog called Year Of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper.  It is hard to see in the photo but it beautiful paper that has gold, silver and copper accents.  We cut out the word “NOEL” using the Large Letters Framelits.  I made it a little easier for my Club members by lining up the letters ahead of time and them attached them using retired Washi Tape.

Then we cut out the snowflakes from Silver Foil Paper using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Des.

Eclipse Card

If you are on the internet at all you will know that Eclipse Cards are the biggest thing going on right now.  I have no idea who “invented” it but it is all the rage.  I like the way they look so I decided to try one out myself.

Eclipse cards are super easy to make.  Basically  you just stamp a background or use Designer Series Paper.  Then you cut out the letters using the Large Letters Framelits Dies and then put them back in using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to make them pop up.  Easy!

I do have to say that I know the Large Letters Framelits are a higher price than most Framelits but they are so worth it.  You can use them forever to make any word you want for cards, banners, posters, etc.  They are well worth the price!

I decided to use Colorful Seasons for my Eclipse Card and then cut out the word “Fall”.  My card is a little busier than most so the letters don’t stick out as much.  If I did it again, I would use less stamping.  The sentiment is from Banners For You.
