Merry Christmas Card

December 5, 2021

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Merry Christmas Card.

To create my Merry Christmas Card, I’ve used a variety of dies from the Paper Flowers Collection as well as Joset Designs and stamps from the Planner Essentials Collection. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my card at home.

Step One. Choose two pieces of Christmas patterned paper. Die cut a 4″ Stitched Rounded Rectangle out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut a 3 3/4″ Fitted Rounded Rectangle out of the other patterned paper. Distress the edges of each rectangle.

Step Two. Die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Rounded Rectangle out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Distress the edges of the rectangle.

Step Three. From a third piece of Christmas patterned paper, die cut a 2 1/4″ Stitched Circle from the Pizza Box Die. Distress the edges of the circle.

Step Four. From the Winter Words Stamp Set, you’ll need the Merry and Christmas words. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the words and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the two words into two strips.

Step Five. From the Winter Greens die, die cut the holly twice out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of each holly piece. Shape the leaves as desired.

Step Six. From the Winter Greens die, die cut the berry branch twice out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Candied Apple Distress Ink over the entire surface of each berry branch.

Step Seven. From the Florals 11 die, you’ll need the large, medium, small and ruffled centres. Die cut the large flower once, the medium flower three times, the small flower three times and the centres twice out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Festive Berries Distress Ink over the entire surface of each flower. From the centres, you’ll need two small and one medium centre. Adhere the flowers together. Two of the flowers will have a medium and small flower as well as a small centre adhered together. The remaining flowers and centre will be adhered together. Shape the flowers as desired.

Step Eight. Adhere the 3 3/4″ rectangle to the 4″ rectangle. Adhere the 3 1/2″ rectangle to the 3 3/4″ rectangle.

Step Nine. Foam square the circle 3/8″ from the left and 1 1/4″ from the top of the 3 1/2″ rectangle.

Step Ten. Adhere the holly branch and berry branch to the bottom right side of the circle. Adhere the other holly branch and berry branch to the left of the perviously adhered holly branch and berry branch as desired.

Step Eleven. Use foam squares to adhere the large flower to the bottom middle of the circle. Foam square the remaining flowers to the right and left of the large flower.

Step Twelve. Adhere the Merry Christmas words to the circle as desired.

Step Thirteen. Cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 4″ x 10 1/2″, score at 5 1/4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Merry Christmas Card at home.

Tis the Season

November 24, 2021

Hello Friends and welcome to the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog. It is Karan here sharing a Christmas card with you, designed with the new Blooms Collection and Florals 12 from Elizabeth Crafts. Along with a easy background tutorial you can easily do on your own.

I am in the mood for Christmas and wanted to create a few more Christmas Cards so I hope you enjoy this one. 


I went into my EC stash and pulled out everything related to Christmas, to create this. I have a few steps here i can share with you on how i created this gorgeous card. 

To begin with i used canson water color paper for my main background, smooshed some antique linen on my mat and pulled my background paper through that. (this measures 4 x 6 by the way) Stamping with CS146 as i felt it reminded me of the days of Christmas. I used Gold embossing powder form Nuvo and heat set that. 

I inked around the edges with antique linen distress ink again just to add a bit of dimension. I added some splatters to the background using aged mahogony and the water brush woth the water color set. 

I then set that aside to dry and got started on my blooms.

I stamped 6 of the poinsettia flowers from the Peace Bloom set. I wasn’t sure at this point how many I was going to use, I just knew I wanted to use them. I stamped with versa mark and then heat setting them with gold embossing powder. I then colored them with the water colors. As it turned out I only used two of these on my final project. I stamped the sentiment from CS101 – Classic Christmas Sentiments onto canson water color paper using black Archival Ink. I did the same smooshing technique to the sentiment as i did to my background. 

Layering the main background with black, then gold mirri, red and craft to coordinate with the colors in the background. I added some florals using the florals 12 coloring with aged mahogany and adding stamens to the centers.

I wanted to use the blooms from the Peace set as the background layer and added my florals 12 on top of that both on the top and bottom of the sentiment block

I grabbed my favorite snow paste and just dabbed some of that around my card to give it that snowy look you see. 

I added some colored seam binding and gold thread to tie this all together. I hope you have enjoyed my little step out tutorial today.

Merry & Bright Mini Album

November 10, 2021

Hello Friends and welcome to the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog. It is Karan Gerber here sharing a project with you. Today I have a mini album to share with you. I designed this using the Florals 12 on the cover along with the Indented Stitched Rectangles and Stitched Fishtails. The inside boosts a few more of my favorites and I hope you enjoy. 

The papers are from Stamperia – Classic Christmas. I love the vintage feel to the images in this collection and they were perfect for photo flips throughout the album. 

Inside cover and first page. I free hand drew the curves pockets on the inside front cover and used the Indented Rectangles as photo mats throughout the album.

Page 2 and 3 – Indented Rectangles used again for photo flips. 

Above I used Planner Essentials 16 and created a pocket from that large tree. Photo mats will fit in there. Same with the Small Villages on page 5. Photo mats will slip in under the houses and trees on that page. 

For pages 6 and 7 I used the Stitched Indented Rectangles for the front of a side pocket. 

For he last page and inside back cover I used the Stitched Circles and Indented Rectangles. Lots of gold mirri paper was used throughout. 

I am attaching some detail photos of the cover for you. I hope you have enjoyed my project share for you today.

Hello Fall Photo Folio

October 30, 2021

Hello friends and welcome back! It’s Karan and I am here today to share with you a project designed using florals 5, on the cover on this Fall Photo Folio.

I love how this fall project turned out. Here in Ontario, Canada the fall colors have been very vibrant and I wanted to capture the colors in this folio.

The inside of Folio, is a tri fold. I created a photo flip in the center using the Indented Stitched Rectangles, I used Hay Ride( 1909) on the right page inside as and love those pumpkins. 

This is what the folio looks like when you open the cover. The paper is from Simple Stories and I didn’t want to cover up those gorgeous pumpkins just yet, so I might just leave this page empty.

The Stitched Indented rectangles are perfect for this photo flip, i cut four of them and scored the top over 1/2″ to score and fold over to create the flip. 

its a gorgeous little mini and I love how it turned out. 

The detail on those pumpkins is fabulous and this little Hay Ride was a great addition to this project. 

The flowers turned out beautiful. Die cut on Soft Finish Cardstock, colored with distress inks and seed beads in the center. 

Thank you for dropping by today, I hope i have inspired you to create a folio on your own.

What One Loves

October 10, 2021

 Good Morning Friends and welcome. It is Karan here sharing a card with you and it is designed using Florals 13.

Here is how I began creating my card. 

I started by selecting some papers and using dies from the Stitched Indented Rectangles, I love adding layers to my cards and this is a great and easy way to do that.

I then used the stitched circles and cut a sentiment, matting it in a coordinating paper and matting it on the color I used for my base

Using Soft Finish Cardstock die cutting three sets of each size as I wasn’t sure how many I would need.

Coloring the florals with Victorian Velvet and the leaves with Peeled Paint Distress Ink, I set about assembling my florals.

Assembling the card and tucking in the leaves in and around the flowers.

Here is a side view of the card and once completed I decided to add some snow paste to detail the florals and leaves, I find it gives it nice texture too. I used stamens to my centers.

I love how this turned out and I would love to see your take on Florals 13.

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.
