The card I have for you today is one I made for my sister in law last year. The "Eclipse" style was all the rage at the time and I made a couple of cards in this style, this was the first - and I learned a few things from it, not enough to make no mistakes on the next ones, but at least different mistakes :-)
The paper I used for this card is absolutely lush in real life, with a soft textured finish, really good quality printing and gold foil details... of course none of that shows up in the pics, lol
I made an easel card, I love them and my sister in law does too... and it's a good chance to show the "eclipse" effect off with it's different angles. I cut the edge with a Sue Wilson border die, the pink card was a bit light to support the weight of the card front (with all the added layers under the letters) so I backed it up with some acetate, I cut the corners with a curved corner cutter - so it doesn't spike you!
The letters were from a die set I bought from AliExpress, they are 3" tall. Here's a link to a tutorial showing the Eclipse technique, it's one of the (many, lol) videos I used to learn. I used three layers of black card to raise the letters up.
I used sticky back pearls from my stash on the centres of each "medallion" on the border die too. The inside of the card was finished very simply, with just a strip of the pearl "ribbon" as a prop for the front of the card. The sentiment is a stamp from Kaisercraft

That's it for today. I have to make a Father's Day card (or two!) for next Sunday... my Dad is deep in the throes of Dementia now, and doesn't know me from a bar of soap, but we still celebrate all the events and I still like to make his cards.... and he still likes the chocolates I always give him, especially so now; the only things he'll eat are sweet - sweeter the better!
Until next time (which may be after the next stage of my dental surgery, which is bringing it's own set of issues, tba) Happy Crafting, Donna
