Poppies and Lace

June 15, 2017

Hello to all !!!

Welcome to the ECD blog!!! This is Anita here.

Card making can be such a relaxing hobby and especially if you have beautiful dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs to beautify your projects. A huge range of craft dies has been released this month and I must say all of them are awesome !!!! You can check them out here.

For my card today, I have created a vibrant background using the ever popular Distress Oxide inks and have combined the poppies with a lace die. The vibrant and the bold poppies against the lacy die looks very beautiful.

To make this card,

  1. Cut a card panel from White Soft Finish Card stock 4.5″ x 6.5″.  Swipe onto a craft mat that has fossilized amber distress oxide ink applied to the mat. Add some fired brick distress oxide ink to the background.
  2. Score the panel on a score board at 1/2 inch intervals, so that the score lines run down the length of the card.
  3. Add splatter of black ink to the background.
  4. Cut three Lacy poppy die cuts and the flower lace die cut.
  5. Colour the Lacy poppy die cuts with candied apple distress ink. Add some black prills to the centre of the poppies.
  6. Colour the flower lace die with twisted citron distress ink. Adhere on brown card stock and cut level with the outline of the flower lace die.
  7. Arrange the die cuts on the card panel .
  8. Adhere on a mat layer of black card stock with double sided adhesive tape. Add twine.
  9. Adhere on a white card base 5″ x 7″ .
  10. Add sentiment .

Thanks for stopping by.

    Love the card. I do have a problem. I went to the the site to purchase the die and It was sold out–one hour after I got the email.
    This happens often and is very frustrating. Is this appearing before the items are in the store?
