A Male Eclipse Card

Today is my friend's husband's 65th birthday. As he loves playing golf, I thought I'd
make him a golf themed eclipse card. I'm really enjoying making this style of card,
and love the effect the raised letters or numbers give.
The products I have used are:-
Number dies - Purchased from eBay
All Occasion Dies - Happy Birthday
Home made card candi
Challenges entered:-

  20. What a beautiful card!! I keep hearing so much about this eclipse technique. Did you just pop the numbers up on foam adhesive? Thanks for joining us at Always Fun Challenges.

    1. Yes, I die cut the numbers three times (once with the patterned paper thentwice with scrap card) and glued them together. Next I die cut the numbers from foam sheets and glued them onto the number then directly onto the base card. Hope this helps.

  21. Super cute!!! Thank you for joining us at PINspirational, good luck!!! Amy DT
