Celebrating the Eclipse with an Eclipse Card!

SLIMLINE ECLIPSE CARD

In anticipation of today’s astronomical spectacle, an eclipse, I found my creativity steering towards the cosmos. The event isn’t just a marvel of the skies but a muse for my latest project—an “Eclipse” technique slimline card. 

For this project, I dove into the soon-to-be-retired Stargazing Designer Series Paper, which proved to be the perfect backdrop for our celestial theme. The starry sky and space-themed patterns brought the vastness of the universe to the palm of my hands. The choice to use the Alphabet A La Mode Die set for cutting out “Happy Birthday” directly from this cosmic backdrop was deliberate, aiming to blend the celebration with the infinity of space. And of course, no starry night is complete without a sprinkle of sparkle, hence the addition of Rhinestone stars to mimic the gleaming cosmos.

Crafting the Envelope: The First Impression
There are 2 paths you can take for the slimline card envelope. The traditional route with a business-sized envelope offers simplicity and convenience, but I can’t resist the charm of creating a custom envelope. Matching the envelope with the card’s Designer Paper, it sets the stage for what lies within, promising a journey through the stars before the card is even seen.

Instructions & Video Tutorial: Guiding Through the Galaxy
If you’re eager to recreate this stellar journey, detailed instructions, measurements, and a complete supply list are readily available in a free PDF in the INSTRUCTIONS section. 

The Stargazing Suite: A Farewell to a Galactic Companion
The core of this project, the Stargazing Suite Collection, deserves its ode. As it prepares for retirement, I can’t help but reflect on the cosmic journeys it has enabled. From crafting astronauts to rocket ships and creating paper planets, this collection has been a gateway to the galaxy. Its galactic stamps, cosmic dies, and holographic paper have not just been tools but portals to crafting our very own universes.

NOTE: THE STARGAZING PAPER IS GOING ON SALE TOMORROW 40% OFF WHILE IT LASTS

Don’t let the adventure end here. Dive into my Stargazing SERIES section below to discover more tutorials inspired by the Stargazing Suite. As we bid farewell to this celestial collection, let’s make the most of its remaining time, crafting our tributes to the night sky.

Conclusion: A Cosmic Connection
As we look up at the eclipse today, let’s remember the beauty and mystery of the cosmos that we can capture, even in something as simple as a handmade card. Join me in this crafting journey and let’s make connections that span galaxies.

Happy crafting!
