I dusted off the Sizzix Eclips and played around a little bit. I have a lot to learn with this machine. The sun and the dragonfly are from two of the cartridges, Starter & Rockin' Janie (comes with the machine) and All Occasions. Couldn't you just pinch that itsy-bitsy face on the dragonfly? I did some heat embossing on the middle layer of the sun. I totally messed up while gluing these layers together and the layer with the heat embossing is actually an outline cut, which should have gone on top of my top layer. I was in a bit of a rush while making this card. I wanted to make the Peachy Keen challenge deadline and I only had an hour or two for crafting this morning. The white background is embossed using an old school Sizzix embossing plate, in my Big Kick. These plates produce a more subtle embossing than the more popular embossing folders, but sometimes subtle is okay. The houses border is a Tim Holtz die, which I cut from glitter foam in the Big Kick. LOVE IT! I used an EK Success border punch on the bottom along with American Crafts ribbon and a ruler border from one of my bazillion scrapbook kits. I've had the miscellaneous embellishments for some time...I will be back later this evening with details one those. I love the colors of this challenge and I'm quite pleased with how my card turned out!
