I have been playing with the Eclipse technique recently. You can see one of them a couple of posts back I made for a colour challenge. This one is a Christmas one using the Christmas Pines stamp set.
The base card is Cherry Cobbler and the card mat is Crumb Cake. The pine leaves are stamped in Garden Green. The Gold Foil bow is cut from the Pretty Pines Thinlits.
Have you tried the Eclipse Technique yet. SO easy but so effective.
Create the Eclipse Technique.
The Eclipse Technique is cutting the words or shapes directly from a stamped card piece and raising them off the card
1. Stamp your card with your chosen images. You can use a piece of Designer Series paper (patterned paper) too as an alternative.
2. For this card I used the Large Letters Framelits to cut the word out of the white card. You can use any dies though to cut other shapes from the stamped white card or paper mat.
3. Adhere the stamped white card mat or patterned paper piece directly on to your Crumb Cake card mat and then adhere both to the Cherry Cobbler card base.
4. Raise each letter up off the card in its place with Dimensionals.
NB: I have seen on some tutorials that the letters were cut several times from white card. Then the cut letter was stacked up and adhered together and then the stamped letter was adhered on top of that stack. I don’t think that is necessary. Raising up the letter with Dimensionals is quite adequate.
Now you can go and create your own Eclipse card.
Thanks for looking today. I hope your day is going OK??
