REVERSE ECLIPSE TECHNIQUE + MODERN CARD DESIGN - Global Stampin' Video Hop February 2022

Today is another tutorial for the Global Stampin’ Video Hop on YouTube. Each month on the fourth Friday Stampin’ Up Demonstrators from around the world come together and share their projects based on a monthly theme. March’s Theme is STYLISH CARDMAKING IDEAS. Today I am sharing this modern card using the Hello Beautiful Stamp Set. The simple background created with the Hello Beautiful Stamp Set is the perfect background for this fun reverse eclipse card. I used one of the fern dies from the Tropical Layers Dies and I love how the shapes work together. I hope these cards inspire you to create something simple and beautiful today.

Make sure to check out what everyone makes for this monthly Video Hop. You can start with my video, I have linked it below. You can find the next video at the top of the video’s description on YouTube. Have fun!

1- Begin by stamping the larger oval images across the Basic White piece. I used a reverse rainbow pattern, but you could do this in any color combination you want. Stamp inside the shapes with your choice of small pattern stamps and the matching ink color.

If you have adhesive sheets add them to the back before cutting.

2- Cut out shapes with your choice of dies. Keep them to the center of the cardstock. You don’t want them to cut any of the edges. Make sure to keep all the little pieces.

3- Use washi tape and create a hinge to hold the “background” piece in place as you adhere the main die cut pieces to the black cardstock. If you don’t have adhesive sheets use a sponge to add liquid glue to the back of the die cuts.

Carefully lift up the “background” piece. You could use your Take A Pick Tool to help the delicate parts.

4- Cut the clear envelope down to fit behind the open areas. Adhere the clear sheet over the holes. Make sure that any small or delicate pieces get adhesive.

5- Fold the “background” piece over the black cardstock again and make sure everything is lining up. Add any of the smaller pieces inside any “black” areas on the clear sheet. Use liquid adhesive to glue down if not using adhesive sheets.

6- Lift the “background” piece up again and add mini dimensionals all around the opening to provide as much support as you can. Remove the paper backing and slowing adhere to the black cardstock. Everything should line up. Remove the washi tape hinge.

7- Wrap 20” of Black Twine around the bottom and tie a bow on the right side. Then adhere everything to the cardbase.

8- Stamp a greeting and cut it out with a coordinating die. I used the small oval die from the Beautiful Shapes Dies.  Add over the bow with dimensionals.

All Done!
