Hi, it’s Elena today. Is it just me or are the days flying by this summer? Christmas card making time is creeping up on me, but I wanted to take a moment to celebrate summer before it’s over with a pop-up card featuring the Sand Castle die set from Joset van de Burgt. The set is so cute, and believe it or not this pop-up card is easy to put together and doesn’t take that long to make. Here’s how I created it:
Good Morning. This is Selma Stevenson today with an early start on holiday cards. Recently Susan Tierney-Cockburn had a video on her Susan’s Garden Club Facebook page showing how to assemble her Poinsettias using the Garden Notes Poinsettia die set. You can view this video for instructions on how to create this beautiful flower here.
I’m sure there are special people on your list who would love to receive a keepsake card such as this one. Because of the dimension, it can be protected when mailed in one of the Clear Acrylic Boxes available from Elizabeth Craft Designs. It can also be delivered in person, attached to the top of a box or the front of a gift bag, or placed inside the box or bag along with the gift.
Hello – Samantha back sharing a card I created using Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Butterfly Aperture die by Becky Seddon. This is one of those card making moments where the idea in your head seems fun and easy but the actual process is long and tedious. Many times I thought of changing the idea, simplifying it, but I persisted and well…you tell me, worth it?
I think so… 🙂
Creating cards with trees are always great to have on hand because they can be used for anyone but especially appropriate for masculine cards. Good Morning, this is Selma Stevenson today and I had fun creating a Christmas tree with a patina look. Patina is a thin layer that forms on the surface produced by oxidation or any change of a surface through age and exposure. I thought it would be fun to try and create the look of patina by using glitter on the new Christmas Tree die cut. Here is how the card was created.
