Congratulations With Oh So Eclectic

A high school friend of mine recently receive an impressive promotion. Yes, some of my classmates are still working! I wanted to send her a congratulations card and also wanted to try out a new technique I saw called Middle. You’ll figure out the reason for that name pretty quickly! Since I love the Oh So Eclectic stamp set, I decided to use that.

So, do you see why the technique is called “Middle”?

Design Notes for Oh So Eclectic Card:

This was definitely a fun card to create.

  • Stamp sentiment in the middle of layer.
  • Place some Post-It notes over the sentiment, leaving room above the sentiment.
  • Stamp images, in this case flowers from Oh So Eclectic.
  • Replace Post-It Notes, covering the sentiment, but exposing the space beneath the sentiment.
  • Stamp more flowers.
  • Add lines above and below the sentiment using a Stampin’ Write marker. I used Dapper Denim.

Didn’t I say it was fun? It’s pretty easy also.

Please email me if you’d like a more detailed tutorial. ([email protected])

For the final touch I added some Wink of Stella to the flowers. I do love my Wink of Stella!
