Celebrating the Great Eclipse - Stamping Style!

What a fun week at the monthly card class!  The class date coincided with the "Great Eclipse" across the United States and since our area was going to experience approximately 97% totality, I decided the class had to celebrate the event.  The four card designs featured various shadow layering techniques and to add to the celebration, everyone received viewing treats at their work stations. 


It was definitely worth taking a few minutes away from stamping to watch the historical event.  Best of all, I was able to snap a photo of attendees before the class ended!

Today, I will detail one of the shadow cards and follow with the remaining cards in the next post.  In the card featured, the Happy Birthday Thinlit was used to cut Night of Navy and So Saffron cardstock pieces which became the feature sentiment.  By offsetting the Night of Navy layer when adhering it to the So Saffron layer, the shadow effect was created.  To highlight it even more, Whisper White cardstock was cut using the largest circle die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  The card base uses So Saffron cardstock and the Designer Series Paper (DSP) is found in the Delightful Daisy DSP package.  Night of Navy 5/8" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon completes the card.

FYI:  My next post will be up much sooner...since my husband retired, my schedule has been somewhat disrupted but now we seem to have settled into a routine so I can get back to my activities on a regular basis!

Thanks for stopping by and check back soon for more project ideas!
