Welcome back to my blog crafty friends!
Today is my day on the Kat Scrappiness blog and
I have a fun Eclipse card to share with you and a video
to go along with it to show you exactly how I made it!
I have 2 guests in my video today.....
My cat Poppers who refused to get off of my desk for the video
so I let her stay, excuse the cat hair....
My second guest is my daughter Taylor who took over for my
voiceover about half way through the video.
I was frustrated and tired and she knows so much about
card making she agreed to help me out!
She has a great sense of humor, I love her take on card making!
Now on to the card.
This card measures 4" x 4" and features the eclipse technique.
I started out with a panel cut from the Square Zig Zag dies to stamp on.
I stamped those lovely pastel brush strokes from the
trio of crosses die to cut out a focal point.
I also cut that beautiful trio of crosses out 4 more times in
aqua card stock to layer under the stamped die cut.
Once I layered the "built up" trio of crosses back on to the panel,
they really stood in a very subtle way giving that classic
eclipse look to the card.
Sparkling Clear Jewels gave a nice finishing touch to this card!
It's much easier to understand in a video so you can check out
my video here or on YouTube.
I hope you have enjoyed today's card and I hope it inspires you
to make your own eclipse card! Also please consider joining the monthly
