The Latte Girls have pleasure in bringing you the Eclipse Technique this week for our weekly Blog Hop.
Before I begin, let me share some basic tips with you.
- There is a limit to the number of letters you can put on a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” or 10.5 cm x 14.9 cm card. Four letters is about the most you can use.
- The technique is not limited to letters. Use the numbers, punches, or any of your favourite Framelit dies.
- Stamp on the cardstock or use Designer Series Paper, it’s up to you. Try embossing the cardstock as an alternative. Get creative!
- Save ALL the die cut pieces because some letters will need to be filled in with what you might think is scrap (the center of the O or the inside of the B, for example).
- Have straight before running through the Big Shot. Tip for this: place a tiny pencil mark on each side of your card/DSP where you want your letters etc to line up. I used a metal ruler to place across to give me that straight line once the card was on the Big Shot. Line your letters etc up on using the metal ruler
Here are the supplies you need:
- Card Base
- Designer Series Paper or stamped cardstock
- Large Letter Framelits/Number Dies/Punches
- Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals or Foam Adhesive Strip
- Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Snail
- Big Shot with Magnetic Platform

- Basic Black card layer is 12.9 cm x 8 cm or 4 1/4″ x 3″
