Hello, everyone! Anna is here.

Today I am sharing an Eclipse technique - Happy birthday Card. I made this card in a snap, using my Big Shot and one die set. Below you find a list of all the used materials! To see how all of this is done, you can follow my step by step tutorial.

The technique of this week is the Eclipse Technique. The name of this technique comes from something we rarely see: a solar eclipse!

I didn't make may cards of this type but they are fun to make and I love how easy it is to spell all sorts of messages with Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 37PK - Pop Art Uppercase.

As cardmakers we get this effect by taking a piece of paper or cardstock, diecutting a shape from it and placing this back to its place but with added height. This raised part gives it a special effect.

My card base is ligth pink. Above I mounted a rectangle of floral patterned paper. The "HAPPY" has been eclipsed and I stamped the sentiment "birthday" directly onto the paper.
