Cover Die-Eclipse

 Hello friends.  I have a new card and a new technique to share today.  I saw the Group of Seven Cardmakers technique of Cover Die Eclipse. After seeing the teams lovely cards and watching Gina K's video I had to give it a try.

After looking through several dies and cover plates I finally decided on Pinkfresh Studios Choose Hope stamp set and Simple Diamonds Cover Plate, and this is the card I came up with.

I cut 2 panels of 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 white panels and stamped the image on both panels using my SU Stamparatus.  I colored the images with SU Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Blends and then cut one panel with the Simple Diamonds die.  I also cut 2 more plain white layers and glued them together and then glued the cut stamped panel on top for dimension (I saw Gina also did this in her video).  I like the dimension it gives.  I glued these layers over the stamped image, aligning it up, and then glued to my white card base.  I stamped the sentiment from SU Go To Greetings and flagged the ends.  I mounted the sentiment with foam tape in the middle and glued the ends over the die cut.

You need to check out this fun technique over at Group of Seven Cardmakers and give it a try.
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
