Back in 2013 when Kristen C and I came up with the idea of the Eclipse technique, we never could have imagined how popular it would become! Now the technique is used far and wide. Of course the introduction of framelits and thinlits has made it much easier! (read the original post HERE) and now there is no real need for the tutorial I created way back then using the stamp-a-majig (But you can still click here for the free download)
I spent so much time on my 3D for this post I needed to make a very quick New Year Card - and the Eclipse technique is an easy and quick one. I used the Large Number Framelits and the Year Of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper, along with my Go-to Basic Sentiment Stamp Set - Teeny Tiny Wishes, finishing it of with a Silver Bow from the Mini Gift Bows.
(Sorry about the photo quality. We are still in an apartment after loosing the ground floor of our house and my studio during the Hurricane Harvey flood here in Houston, and there's not really any good light in the apartment...)
Little did I realize it was going to be a mathematical challenge! lol
But, I decided to give it a try and here is the finished project....the lid is attached and flips over and tucks behind the 2018 panel.
