So Beautiful Eclipse Card

Hey card making friends, Happy Tuesday.  Today I’m sharing the So Beautiful Eclipse Card.  I recently ordered this lovely “So Beautiful” stamp from the Simon Says Stamp Crafty Hugs release and once I had it all colored up I decided it would make an awesome Eclipse Card.

Simon Says Stamp So Beautiful Eclipse Card


First, I colored the image with my Altenew Artist watercolor 24 pan set.  I used the wet and wet technique so that the colors really moved and blended for me (wet the paper first then add the watercolor to it).

Then I added Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide around the edges to add a bit of a frame plus some background color.

The smaller sentiment is white heat embossed it on a scrap of black card stock before fussy cutting around it.

This is a large Red Rubber stamp  so my finished card is 5 x 7 and there is a PDF download below with full instructions for you

I’ve tilted the card in this image so you can see the black layers below the raised cut out letters – this is the ECLIPSE.

How to Create the ECLIPSE CARD

**** Supply list is at the end of this post for you.

  • Use the MISTI to stamp the image in waterproof black ink onto watercolor paper and watercolor
  • Lay the art piece flat on some SSS grid paper, and  use a ruler to line up the Ornate Alphabet Dies across the piece.
  • Use the J for spacing for the second L and once everything is spaced out tape the first three letters down with Purple Tape.
  • Die cut the first three letters, then move the L and O back in place for the second cut.
  • TIP – Don’t forget to save the white center cut out from the O you need to place it back in at the end.
  • Use black scrap to cut each letter three more times.
  • Stack the four pieces for each letter and glue them together with white glue.
  • Mount the art piece to a piece of foam board, cut just a bit smaller than your art piece (4 x 6)
  • Use White glue to place the stacked letters back into the holes on the art piece.
  • With the black underneath, this creates the “Eclipse”.
  • Attach the art piece to a top folding 5 x 7 card base
  • Finally, Add the black sentiment under the cut out letters with foam tape pieces to pop it up just a bit.

I’ve added this card to the following challenges for this week/month.
