Eclipse Mother's Day Tutorial
1- Cut cardstock thick whisper white base at 5 1/2 X 4 1/4
Cut Berry Burst layer 5 1/4 X 4
Cut Whisper White Layer 5 X 3 3/4
2- Lay the letters out on the cardstock and draw a very light line using pencil where the bottom of the letters will be and then remove the letters and set aside.
3- Starting with Crushed Curry stamp the small floral image and stem randomly to cover the lower half of the whisper white panel. Then randomly stamp the same stamps in Tempting Turquoise and lastly Berry Burst
4- Place the letters on the whisper white panel where you want them and cut them out with the Big Shot.
5- Cut 4 of each letter out of another piece of whisper white (I used the thinner whisper white) and glue those layers together.
6-Adhere the whisper white panel to the Berry Burst panel. Then, lay the letter 'O' in the space and place the middle of the "o" and adhere that down so that it fits in the right spot.
7- Stamp the "Enjoy your special day" sentiment from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set in Berry Burst ink at the top and center of the card panel.
8- Next, take all 3 letters and place mini dimensionals on the back. Peel the backing off and carefully place each letter in the spot it belongs but move slightly to the right so that you see a peek of the berry burst cardstock below (this is what gives it that shadowed, 'eclipse' look)
Wasn't that fun?! You could use this same technique to make a Father's day card...just change the cardstock color, inks, and a more masculine stamp or geometric stamp pattern. You could even make it with cutting the letters out of designer paper and skip the stamping. Share your image in the comments. You never know when a random prize drawing will take place for the best card :)
Until next time....have an Inkredible Day!
