Eclipse Cards for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I'm up on the Scrapbook Adhesives Blog today, sharing a tutorial on these two Eclipse Cards, made from black and white cardstock from the Crate Paper Flourish collection.  The full product list with convenient affiliate links is below, along with some additional technical detail.  For all the additional photos and instruction however, be sure and hop on over to the SBAby3L blog!   I do have some technical details below that you won't find on the SBAby 3L blog, so feel free to scroll down first.





Tech details:

To cut my words, I used a free font that I found online which was an asap condensed bold font.  I always make sure the fonts I use are free for commercial use.  The condensed fonts have smooth, round corners and are more visually appealing for use with Eclipse cards.

I saved the word Blessed for a future project.  If you've never downloaded free fonts before, there are various online tutorials that can walk you through the process.






Next, this hummingbird die cut came with my paper collection and I wanted to incorporate it behind my word.  Here's a few quick steps to achieve this, for any die cut, as pictured below:
  1.  Tack a small amount of adhesive to the back of your die cut (hummingbird) and determine where you wish to place it.
  2.  Using the leftover cardstock from your alpha die cuts as a template, move your bird die cut and tack to the template.  Flip it over and trace the outline from the back of the bird die cut.



3.    Remove your tacked bird and use scissors to cut the traced outline.




4.    Assemble the bird around the letters, discarding the sections that would cover the letters.  Once you've assembled your "puzzle pieces", apply a small amount of glue from the Dual Tip Glue Pen.  Additional trimming may be required for a good fit.





Pretty cool, huh?  It appears to be part of the actual cardstock design.  I debated whether or not to pop it up on foam squares along side my letters.  Maybe next time.




Thanks for popping in!  Head over to see more features and tips on this project, at Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.  Hey, leave a little love, if you like, while you're there!  Terri
