I am enjoying creating with the huge hello die and Sunday Adventure prints. There are over 20 colors that coordinate with the Sunday Adventure prints that is full of a variety of patterns. I just love that the Sweet Candy Drops and Spring Accent Dots coordinate so wonderfully with the Sunday Adventure Prints! Fun Stampers Journey has a variety of embellishments that work beautifully with this printed paper pack! It is a very versatile paper pack available in the Spring Into Summer mini through June 30, 2018. The Sunday Adventure Prints are a great addition to your crafting supplies.
I created this colorful and cheerful eclipse card. Can you spot the Hello?
Eclipse cards are so fun – the main image, in this case, Hello, is hidden and only noticeable because it is raised up off the card. I love the huge hello die – it is so easy to create with!
Here is an angled side view. When looking at the eclipse card from this angle, the foam squares become visible. It was a lot of work to trim the foam squares thin enough to fit in the middle of the hello.
I decided to create this same card layout using a different pattern from Sunday Adventure prints and different coordinating colors but instead of using foam squares, I decided to build up the hello with card stock. I used 6 hellos cut out of Tangerine Fusion then adhered the printed paper on top. It is a little higher than using foam squares, so I think I will try using 4 card stock hellos with printed paper on top the next time I create a similar card. I suppose it all depends on the look you are going for. Have fun with creating and experiment to find out how many layers work for the look you want.
I love how using the same color card stock that the printed paper is centered on gives the hello the effect of rising up out of that card stock. This technique was easier for me than using a lot of little pieces of foam squares, and I like the effect better, too, when I turn the card to look at the side. Am I the only one that moves my cards around to look at it from different angles?
Here is a collage photo so you can compare the two different cards and how the Hello was raised. Eclipse cards remind me of the images that were trendy a long time ago that had a lot of images on the page and you had to relax your vision to see the hidden images.
Here is the video sharing how I created this Hello Eclipse card.
Here are the dimensions used for this card:
Card Base – 4 1/4 by 11 (folded in half to create a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 card)
Card stock that coordinates with printed paper – 4 1/16 by 5 5/16
printed paper – 4 by 5 1/4
card stock to cut huge hello to build up hello – 2 1/2 by 5 3/4
