Eclipse Birthday Card.....

Morning all, hope you are all well and happy. Halfway through another week....I hope the sun is shining where you are? 

Have you seen these eclipse cards before?? I've seen a few on facebook recently, so I thought I would have a go at one.

It's my friends birthday at the end of the week.
 These are quite simple to do, if you have large letter dies, but I used my silhouette to cut the words out, that way I could have any font and any size.
The letters are just mounted onto foam pads to lift them away from the background sheet. You need to add a darker layer underneath, to show the shadow.
Going to excel London tomorrow.....will let you know what I come back with. xx


  1. This is so pretty Jan, beautiful colours, xxx

  2. Hi Janice this is a stunning card I love it. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  3. Hi Jan,
    such a wonderful card and the lettering is great.
    Love the paper used also.
    Hope you enjoyed Excel.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  4. Hi Jan large letters can make such a good focal point for a card. Hope you enjoyed Excel and it was better than last year which I think,if I recall, you found a little disappointing. It was very hot here yesterday and looks as though it will be today. Best wishes Jackie x

  5. Love the use of the letters Jan. Such a pretty card. Enjoy Excel.
    Love Valx

  6. Hi Janice
    I'm catching up again.
    I've seen these around and about and they look really effective. Must give them a bash.
