Christmas Florals

September 12, 2021

Good Morning Friends and welcome. It is Karan here on the blog with and today I am sharing a Christmas Card with you, it’s never to early to get a jump start on our holiday cads for those we love. I love creating my own florals and Florals 12 are fabulous to create poinsettias with.

I was excited to receive some new papers that I ordered and got started on some Christmas Cards. I used the Stitched Circles to create some different sized layers and adhered those together. 

I cut two sets of the Lacey Leaves (1878) as I love using them to tuck in my floral clusters to add detail. The Florals 12, I cut four large, two medium and two small along with 8 of the leaves from the same set. 


I colored the florals with aged mahogany distress ink and the leaves with peeled paint distress ink. After molding and shaping I used pollen from Dress my craft to add to my centers. 


I love to add even more detail to my florals so I dabbed snow paste from Deco Art and topped off with Glitter to add that snowy look.

Thank you for dropping by, I hope you enjoy creating your Christmas cards this season with gorgeous florals from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

You Are Loved – Floral Card

August 30, 2021

 Hello Friends and welcome to the Elizabeth Crafts Blog. It is Karan here sharing a card with you today. I wanted to share with you the versatility of the Art Journal Dies and showcase a couple of them on a card.  

This is designed with Florals 11; Sealed Pocket, and Puzzle Page Die. I know, you know, how much i love that Stitched Fishtail for my sentiments and the Stitched Rectangle just to add an extra layer to my cards. The Hope Floral Stamps are fabulous to add some added detail and tuck in to match the florals i create, I loved coloring them with ink, or water color they add that perfect touch. 

Above is my card it measures 5.5 x 7.5, a big over sized for envelopes, but you can always attach this to a gift bag, or create a hand made envelope using an envelope maker.

you can see the detail of the fishtail die, the Sealed Pocket and the gorgeous florals here. I colored the florals using Tea Rose Archival Ink, and Peeled Paint Distress Ink on the leaves. 

here are a few detail shots for you. 

and finally a side view. I hope you have enjoyed my card that i have shared with you today. Please share your creations with us over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Family Facebook Group.

Remembered – Mini Album

August 11, 2021

 Hello Friends and Welcome to the EC Designs Blog. It is Karan here to share a project with you.

I know it has been awhile since i have posted crafty projects with our big move almost behind us, i am slowly getting back to creating. My first project is using their floral stamps and beautiful floral dies creating a gorgeous mini album.

My first project back is Designed using Florals 13. Which i have shaped into Wild Roses. I matched the color of them with the paper i used in my project. Using a foam bud as my center.


Stamping the Blossom set out on Soft Petal Cardstock from Elizabeth Crafts with black archival ink, i decided to use my water brush and dab color from the same pad i used to create my florals. Salvaged Patina Distress Ink. 

This project is designed as a mini folio on 49 and Market Accordion Flip Fold which comes with their new album as an insert. I thought it would make a perfect mini. 

The inside i still want to decorate but my new scrap space is very much in boxes, but i promise i will add more photos when i get to my Planner dies. 

I hope you have enjoyed my share with you today and I have  inspired you to create your own beautiful mini albums.

In Sympathy

April 21, 2021

Hi There! Karen here today posting a sympathy card I’ve had to make for a boss of mine who lost her father. What a sad time for her, and I wanted to be able to send a card to let her know I care. Elizabeth Craft Designs has gorgeous products to help make all kinds of card, like the florals I used today.

To create this card, I started by cutting a sheet of light teal card stock to 4-1/4″x8-1/2″ and folded it in half to make the cardbase. I used a piece of 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock for the card front. I smushed some Broken China and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink on my craft mat and swirled around the cardstock to create the background effect. I then cut it with the Stitched Rounded Rectangle Dies.

I added some ribbon and lace. I also cut a Dotted Stitched Circle die out of the light teal and stamped a sentiment from the General Sentiments set and cut it with a Fitted Circles die. I adhered the circles offset just because I think it adds some interest.

Next, I die cut flowers, branches and leaves using the Florals 5 dies and the Branches & Leaves dies. I colored them with Distress Inks in Broken China, Picked Raspberry, Bundled Sage and Mowed Lawn.

I turned them over, spritzed the back very lightly with water, and shaped them. This particular set is pretty easy to shape since you can just run the stylus down the petals.

The flowers are so pretty even if you aren’t an expert at coloring (like me!). I then adhered the flowers to the card and added some stamens that I’d found on Amazon. The card was finished with a few accent half-pearls.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today.

Craftily yours, Karen
