Happy 68 Eclipse Card

Hi Everyone,
A few days ago on the Kat Scrappiness Blog I posted a video tutorial for an Eclipse card using the new Condensed Uppercase Alpha Dies from Kat Scrappiness. After the video went live the dies were sold out and many people reached out to me to find out if there will be more coming.  I am happy to say that more are coming and you can now place an order to reserve them. On the blog post I mentioned the Condensed Number Dies would be great to make for a birthday or Anniversary. Today I am showing an Eclipse card I made for my Mother’s 68 birthday using the Condensed Number Dies. Below you will find the steps to replicate this card. Before we get started I have a Blog Giveaway going on.

Here is the prize

  • Step 1 - Cut White Cardstock to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2". Score and fold in half to form a vertical side-fold card base. Finished size: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (A2)
  • Step 2 - Trim White Cardstock to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Apply Distress Oxide onto a craft mat and spray water to activate the Distress Oxide. Dip the cardstock into the Distress Oxide. Dry with a heat tool before adding more layers of color. Once you reach the desired effect using a paintbrush gather the remaining ink and splatter. Let completely dry before moving onto the next step.
  • Step 3 - Optional - Place a stencil over the Distress Oxide panel and secure it using painters tape. Apply Texture Paste. Let dry.
  • Step 4 - Diecut Double Stitched Rectangles Die using the Distress Oxide panel.
  • Step 5 - Diecut Condensed Numbers Die using the Distress Oxide Panel. Adhere the panel to the card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. The inside pieces of the Numbers must also be adhered to the card front. Apply Pop Ups or foam tape to the Numbers and adhere it to the card.
  • Step 6 - Stamp Everyday Brush Strokes sentiment using Distress Oxide. Once dry use the anti static magic pad then restamp using an Embossing Ink Pad. Sprinkle Clear Embossing Powder and heat it with a heat gun. Trim and adhere to the bottom area between the Numbers using Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
  • Step 7 - Randomly place sequins for added interest using Multi Medium Glue.
