I've been wanting to try the 'eclipse technique' for ages after seeing lots of different designs from fellow crafters. I don't currently have the big letter dies so i decided i would give it a go with the large numbers instead.
I've chosen the 'Cheers to the Year' stamp set and taken both of the snowflake stamps.
The larger i stamped randomly in 'Night of Navy' and the smaller snowflake in 'Smoky Slate'
The sentiment i placed in the top corner also stamped in 'Night of Navy'
Next i took the numbers and lined them up carefully before running through the big shot.
Using a whisper white card blank, layer 'Night of Navy' cardstock that has a length of silver ribbon wrapped around it. Make sure you tie the ribbon before gluing so that it holds everything into place. The beautiful silver embellishment is also from the 'Year of Cheer' suite.
Lastly i popped the numbers up on some dimensionals before placing them back into their correct space on the card from where they were originally cut. Check you have them the right way round so that your stamped images line up.
I really like the way this card looks with the numbers subtle but still showing enough to catch the eye.
Of course you could use any stamp set and colours you have to create your own design.

I am the first to admit i have an issue hoarding crafting products, especially papers! When they come packaged and look so pretty it's hard to chop them up to use. I always end up with retired papers left over each time a new catalogue is released and they end up sitting in my paper store unused. So with this in mind i decided to start using some of them up and made a start on some Christmas cards. Santa's workshop was such a fun set of papers, especially if making cards for younger members of the family. I used a larger piece of dsp for the background but then also cut another strip with elves on to use as the main focus of the card. Mounted onto real red card and then some glimmer paper to cut the word 'Christmas' from adds a little bit of festive bling and sparkle. At least if i use up my old stash i have the perfect excuse to buy more of the new products :) If you would like to buy any current products please pop over to my online shop HERE
