Still Learning

Yes, I'm still playing with and learning from my Eclips machine. So far, I've only completed this wedding card, but I have a Ziploc full of cut out pieces ready to be assembled. I have learned how to use the laser light on the Eclips to cut exactly where and what I want. This is such a paper-saving feature of the machine. Also the machine can tell me if I can cut multiple pieces in the size of paper I inserted. The Eclips machine is smarter than me! For this card, I simply ran the cut pieces into a Xyron machine to add adhesive. I used a Martha Stewart glue pen and Beacon 3 in 1 glue to attach the embellishments. Probably the hardest part of making this card was gluing the little pearls along the curve of the cake. The papers used were from a S.E.I. pack and the card base is an American Crafts product. Okay, that's it for today. No time to craft tomorrow, but I'll work on finishing some projects this weekend...... so come back for a visit.
