My spin on the Eclipse Card

I created this card for a swap.  I did so many cards I, gasp, got tired of Autumn and Christmas cards.
I thought this would be a lovely birthday or even sympathy card.
I'm also making them for my customers this month, as their thank you card in their order. 
Now don't you wish you had ordered this month?

So many videos say to punch or die cut your raised image then put it back with post its. 
Nope, not my customers, they'll pass on that card. Cards need to be easy, they come to class after
a long work day and just want to have fun.   This card was inspired by Susan Campbell's card.

Very Vanilla CS 4x5.5” and 5.5 x 8.5” folded card base + scrap for greeting
Black CS – scraps that fit in the Cat punch.
Ribbon 6” + some – I only attached this to the edges on the backside of the card layer, then tied a short piece onto this. 
I tie from the roll and just the ribbon so I am not clipping off each end.

Spooky Cat stamp Set - Face
Cat Punch
Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set
Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set
Calypso Coral, Basic Black ink
Very Vanilla, Basic Black CS
Calypso Coral 1/4” Ombre Ribbon or Washi Tape
Soft Subltles Enamel Shapes
Classic Label Punch

1. Stamp your image on a 4 x 5.25” Very Vanilla cardstock layer. I used the flowers from the Awesomely Artistic Set. 
Many images will work. The set that goes with the crate die cut is what Susan used.

2. Punch out your cat, have some of the floral image in the cat opening.
Stamp the face on the cat with Basic Black. Set aside.

3. Attach ribbon or Washi Tape to top of 4 x 5.25” layer.

4. Attach 4 x 5.25” layer to Very Vanilla folded card base.

5. Punch 2 cat shapes out of Black cardstock. Glue together.
Glue into cat opening on 4 x 5.25”layer.

6. Attach Dimemsionals to back of punched cat image.
I used 4 mini Dimensionals, and cut one in half for the tail.

7. Remove papers on Dimensionals. lol Don't ask why I say this, but my cat would not stick to first card!
Set directly over black cat punched shape in 4 x 5.25” layer, press in place.

8. Tie short piece of ribbon onto ribbon strip on card.  I tie directly from the roll, it saves on ribbon.  You only trim one end a bit rather than 1/2" off 2.  In a class of 20, that is over half a yard of ribbon wasted.

9. You can stamp the greeting directly onto the card,
or stamp Thinking of You from Teeny Tiny Wishes. Punch out with Classic Label Punch, trim and glue onto card. 

10. Embellish with a Soft Subtle Enamel Shape. I used a Blushing Bride shape. 

Happy stamping!
