Yesterday I shared with you my first eclipse card using the Night in Bethlehem stamp set. Today I have my second eclipse Card except this time I used the lovely Share What You Love DSP instead of stamping. It was a super quick card to make and very effective with the paper.
This card was for a friend’s six-year-old daughter so it also required a small 3D box to hold some chocolates. I used the retired Bakers Box die for this and continued the theme using the Share What You Love DSP. This DSP is great for boxes as it is a heavier weight paper than our normal DSP.
Even though the paper is heavier than our normal DSP I still adhered it to a piece of Whisper White (10cm x 14.3cm) as I wanted the letters to be strong enough when raised from the card base. I spaced my letters out across the front then die cut them out. I ran the plate through the Big Shot a couple of times to make sure I’d really cut through both layers of the front. I then adhered the main card front to my Blackberry Bliss card base and put the card together as per my instructions from yesterday’s post.
Here are some close ups and side views of the card.
If you look closely to the inside of the card you will see that I added a strip of the DSP along the bottom of the insert – a ‘no stamping’ card completed.
The recipient loved that her card had her name on it – I think this one may even get put in a frame to keep on display 🙂
Well that’s it from me for today – until next time …
