Hibiscus Eclipse Card

Eye-Popping Hibiscus Colors & Disappearing Letters!

I have been “oohing and aahing” over the Eclipses cards that so many stampers are creating lately, but after seeing the video demo by Karen Hasheck, I knew I had to give it a try!  

Stamps to create this card: Hibiscus (Multi-Step) Clear Stamps and Forever & Always Clear Stamps (for the “Happy”).


After stamping the bright and colorful hibiscus flowers and leaves, I cut out the “BIRTHDAY” letters using my Silhouette Portrait. Century Gothic – Bold was the typeface and which I then stretched to look more condensed.Hibiscus-eclips-card-side-view

I really enjoyed this card technique and LOVE the look of  “now you see it, now you don’t” effect for the sentiment. I will definitely this technique again!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous, inky weekend!
