Let’s Make an Eclipse Card!

Eclipse cards are so much fun to make… they’re like putting a jigsaw puzzle together where the pieces lock into place beautifully! Today, I will show you how to make an eclipse card and how easy it really is! To begin, you’ll need a few supplies.

Supply List:

(Click for links)

Patterned Cardstock          Solid Heavyweight Cardstock

Neenah Solar White Card Base     Cricut Machine (or metal letter dies)

Glue in a Fine Metal Tip Bottle     Acrylic Stamping Block     Cutter Bee Scissors

Scrapbook.com Stamp Set     Memento Tuxedo Black Ink

Instructions:

Step 1: Cut out six copies of each letter (in the word you are using) with your Cricut Machine or metal letter dies on solid heavyweight cardstock. Also cut the word onto your patterned cardstock card front, as well. Go ahead and adhere your card front to your card base.

Step 2: Stack and glue all of the layers of each letter together (as shown in the video below). Then, glue your stacked letters into the slots on your card front. They fit in just like a puzzle and will lock into place nicely.

Step 3: Embellish card with stamps, ephemera, bling, ribbon, glitter, or stickers as you choose. That’s all there is to it! So fun and so easy!

Check out my video tutorial below for an easy to follow visual guide! Thanks for stopping by today… Have a happy, crafty day! 🙂

Quick Tip: How to Heat Emboss

If you’ve been crafting for a while, you are likely familiar with how to both heat emboss and dry emboss. However, we are welcoming new crafters to the community all the time. This quick tip on heat embossing is for newbies and seasoned crafters, alike. Whether you’re learning heat embossing for the first time, or you are looking for a refresher course with tips along the way – you’ve arrived at the right place! So, let’s get started!

qt embossing

 

Supplies Needed:

(Click product name for link)

Heat Tool     Versamark Ink (or Pigment Ink)     Acrylic Block     Stamp Sentiment/Image

Anti-Static Powder Tool (Embossing Buddy)     Embossing Powder     Cardstock

Paintbrush     Alcohol-Free Baby Wipes     Tweezers (optional)


Instructions:

Step 1: Begin by patting your anti-static powder tool (Embossing Buddy) over your cardstock. For tips on how to make your own, please see Jen Evers video HERE.

Step 2: Using Versamark Ink (or Pigment Ink), stamp your sentiment or image onto your cardstock paper. Afterwards, sprinkle embossing powder liberally over the top and tap off excess powder. Clean up stray powder flakes with a paintbrush or your finger tip.

Step 3: Allow your heat tool to warm up for a few seconds then apply heat to your paper. If needed, you can hold the paper with tweezers. You will see the heat embossing take place before your eyes. Once the image or sentiment is embossed, allow paper to cool. That’s it! Easy as pie! 😉

Please let me know in the comments section if you have any questions. I have another post about another form of embossing (called “Dry Embossing”) HERE. I’ve also posted a video below to help you further. Have a happy, crafty day!
