Elizabeth Craft Designs May Designer Challenge – Flat A2 size cards

May 31, 2014

Hello everyone,

We’re back to show you some wonderful creations of our Design Team for the monthly Elizabeth Craft Designs Challenge. This month we challenged our designers to create a flat A2 size card.
Of course they had to use some fun ECD products! Let’s see what they came up with.

The first card we like to show you is from Kelly Booth who made this stunning card using the Butterfly Label Peel-Offs in gold, Shimmer Sheetz, Silk Microfine Glitter and some decorative glitter borders. The Shimmer Sheetz background is embossed with our Berry Branch Embossing Folder and looks beautiful. For instructions visit Kelly’s blog.

Frances Byrne used the Amethyst Gemstone Shimmer Sheetz to create a gorgeous embossed background for her card. Frances used the Flower in Frame Peel-Off stickers colored on top of the Silk Microfine Glitter Cool Diamond. The Hello is a die cut out of Black Velvet Adhesive. Frances always likes to finish of the inside of her cards so make sure to visit her blog for more pictures!

Helen Cryer made this beautiful rose card using the Roses in Oval Peel-Offs in black, the Small Butterfly die and the Karen Burniston Oval Flourish Frame Edges. A great sample to show us that the Frame Edges not only look beautiful on the Accordion Card but also on a flat card.
Very elegant! Make sure to visit Helen’s blog for more info.

Next card is from Rita Edwards who made this stunning card using different colors of the Silk Microfine Glitter and the Koy Fish and Flowers Peel-Offs in black. I love how Rita created the ocean background using the release sheet of the Double Sided Adhesive. She positioned her
Peel-Offs just perfect. Visit Rita’s blog for more info.

Raquel Mason chose one of the Jackie’s Dolls in Circle Peel-Offs to create her flat A2 size card.
The colors of the Peel-Off look beautiful and they match perfect with the rest of the card. Raquel added the Circle Frame Edges and some glitter borders around the Peel-Off. The blue cardstock is embossed with our Swirly Curves Embossing Folder. Visit Raquel’s blog for instructions.

Karen Aicken made three beautiful Christmas cards all featuring the Snowflake die and Peel-Offs. She started with a very simple clean card (top left) and added more details to the other two. I love the layers of snowflakes on the last card (front) and the embossed Shimmer Sheetz background. Karen explains each of them on her blog so make sure to check it out.

Debra Hensley hasn’t been feeling very well this past week but still managed to create this stunning glittery positive/negative card. Debra used the Flower Label 1 Peel-Offs, the Basic Black and the Antique Silver Silk Microfine Glitter. A really fun technique you definitely want to try yourself!

Jackie Smith made a beautiful card using the Coffee and Tea Peel-Offs in Silver. Jackie created the base of her card first and then colored the Peel-Offs. Or was it the other way around? It sure does match perfect! I love the use of the Tag die and the Damask Embossing Folder for the sentiment. For more info and supply list, visit Jackie’s blog.

Candy Spiegel loves to make flat cards so for her this was an “easy” challenge. Candy made a gorgeous card using the Flower Cuties 2 Peel-Offs in gold. I love the colors Candy picked to color the Peel-Offs. More info and wonderful projects on Candy’s blog.

Last card we like to share today is from Mary Prasad. Mary used the other Cutie from the Flower Cuties 2 Peel-Off sheet and the Ruby Gemstone Shimmer Sheetz for decoration. I love the little added pearls on the flower “bells”. A very colorful card! For more info visit Mary’s blog.
