Tutorial Total eclipse of the card!

You may have seen the cards that have the eclipse technique, or maybe not.  I am not sure where it came from initially, but the time has come to give it a go.

First I stamped my image (beautiful you) and then coloured it in.  Next, using the alphabet dies, I die cut ‘birthday’ over the stamped image and trimmed this down to the size I wanted. (This is where I discovered I lost my dot for my “i”).

For the next step, for the card, I trimmed down a piece of coffee break dsp and stuck this to my card front.  Taking the die cut piece – being careful not to lose any of the die cuts – I put a piece of black cardstock behind the spaces. Then I stuck this onto the card front.

The next bit is a bit fiddly, but worth it.  Taking the die cut letters, I put some foam pads on and then replaced them in their respective spaces.

I gave the eclipse treatment to the following card.  This one I simply die cut the cake from the dsp and backed it with some black cardstock.

I hope you feel inspired to give it a go.  The effect is worth it.

Enjoy!
