Good morning! Today I'm back with some more eclipse cards. This pair was made for teen sisters who will be moving away from our church over the summer. I wanted to make them 'same but different' cards and I used our church colours and some sparkle.
I started by stamping a stripe on each card - one in portrait position, the other in landscape.
I used Samba, Limoncello and Fiesta Blue, letting the inks blend to create other shades. And then I stamped again, this time with WOW! Embossing ink before pouring Wanderlust embossing powder over and melting it with my heat gun.
I cut the words out from the colourful areas. I kept all the letter centres. Then I cut 3 more of each word from white cardstock.
I put tape behind the colourful panels, and I inlaid the first white die cuts directly into them, before I stacked anything. I found that this made it easier to put the letter centres in place. At this point I had a flat panel, with an inlaid white die cut in each.
Rather than stacking this time, I built up my stack on the panel. These word dies can easily shift and move and I wanted them to exactly line up.
I created my sentiments from various Catherine Pooler stamp sets, which are all linked below.
I added some jewels from Pretty Pink Posh for even more sparkle.
