Today’s project is a combination of two things that I am drawn to: the eclipse technique and Pressed Petals Designer Paper.

“big” thanks


I began by placing the letters “b-i-g”  and the label die on the Pressed Petals DSP, and rolling it through the die cutting machine. The letters are from the Hand-Lettered Prose Die Set, and the label die is from the Merry Christmas Die Set.


For some reason, I enjoy layering die cuts. I have no patience for bows, but I love gluing pieces of paper together. I gave these die cuts five layers of Blueberry Bushel Cardstock for nice dimension.


Next, I backed the DSP with Crumb Cake Cardstock to give it body, and trimmed the edges with a scalloped die from the Be Mine Stitched Die Set. Then, I wrapped one side with Linen Thread, and glued it to a Crumb Cake Card base.


Once the DSP was attached to the card base, I glued the letters back in their holes, creating the “eclipse.”

The label die was stamped with “thanks”  (Well Said Stamp Set) prior to layering.


My design was inspired by this week’s CAS(E) this sketch.


Thank you for visiting. You can see my supplies in the Product List below. I hope you enjoy layering as much as I do!
