How to make a diamond ring using Eclectic Layers Thinlits

I had so much fun making this card for a VERY SPECIAL PERSON!!!  Last week my daughter Jesi was proposed to and it was a total surprise to her!  Little did she know that we were all in on the surprise!  They were coming back to Michigan for a few days and he “popped the question” while at the beach!  So I had this card all ready to give to her!

Card Tips for Project

  • It may look like a lot of pieces–but this was really simple once I figured it out.
  • PAPER SAVING TIP:  Using the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch, punch out of the center of the Gold Foil Layer (you won’t see this once layered!)
  • Punch again, using the 2″ Circle Punch centering the first punched circle, to create the ring
  • I typed the words on my computer, figured out the size and then printed on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Then used the 2″ Circle Punch
  • For the diamond I used 2 dies from the ECLECTIC LAYERS THINLITS.  Begin with the “detailed” thinlit on a piece of Silver Foil.  It will NOT cut it out–just cuts out the center
  • Center the “open” die over what you just cut and cut again–now you have the detail of a diamond
  • Cut another “open” die from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper
  • Now you just have a lot of “parts & pieces” to assemble!
