I just want to say what an amazing design team we have here at Elizabeth Crafts Designs, I am constantly blown away by the talent of my fellow teamies. My post today has been inspired by the beautiful work from Tina Guigui Dornbaum and you can find the inspirational design here: Sending Hugs & Kisses Mini Slimline Card – Elizabeth Craft Designs.
Attach a small light blue piece of scrap card to the top half of a top folding A2 card blank. Die cut a stitched rectangle panel slightly smaller than die cut a small circle in the top centre using a small circular die.
Die cut the daffodil’s into a pale yellow and green cardstock then ink around the edges to add some definition.
Attach the stitched panel to the card front using 3d foam pads. Fix the daffodils on top starting with the stems.
Stamp out the sentiment on black card using embossing ink then sprinkle with white embossing powder and set with a heat tool. Fix across the stems using more 3d foam pads then add a few clear gems to finish.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope both Tina and myself have inspired you to give this these beautiful daffodils cards a go.
Karen here today with a few fun cards that I made recently using the Sealed Pocket die from the Art Journal line. How fun that these dies are so versatile that they can be used for journals, scrapbooks, cards and more! I added some florals to my cards as well!
I made three versions of this card. For this version, I colored the flowers with Wilted Violet Distress Ink and used the Florals 2 Dies with 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. The leaves in all my cards today are colored with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. The card base and the pocket are also 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock. I glued the pocket to the card front which is cut just shy of 4″ across and 5-1/4″ tall. Then it fit perfectly on a standard A2 vertical card base.
One can add a fun giftcard to the tag in the pocket. In my case, I also printed a sentiment and added some ribbon. So fun!
This version is cut with the Florals 5 Dies and is colored with Kitsch Flamingo Distress Ink.
And finally, this version is cut with the Florals 3 Dies and is colored with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink.
Hello everyone, this is Joyce Schmidt, design team member with Elizabeth Craft Designs. I am bringing you Autumn wishes today so that you may begin to brush off the hot summer and start looking forward to the Pumpkin Spice Latte, and holidays to come. Join me today to make this fun card for Autumn using the new Fantasy Floral line coming very soon!
I decided to do a slimline card today. The size of the card measures 81/2 X 31/2 inches. I used the Elizabeth Craft Design soft finish cardstock 110lb to create the card base because I am using it as the base layer for my stencil. I used the rocks stencil (S038) and just used a little distress ink ad a blending brush, it was perfect for this card.
I used the soft finish card stock to die cut Elegant Ornament die (1780). Using the ink to paper transfer technique, I colored the paper brown. I then roughly applied gold embossing powder to certain areas, and heat embossed the powder. It gives it an antique finish as if it was metal.
I die cut leaves from all 3 of the floral sets 1,2,3 and just inked them with browns, oranges, and a dash of green to give it a fall look.
Next, I used my Elizabeth Craft Designs tweezers to add a little shape to the leaves so they would easily take on a realistic look.
To wrap it all up I die cut the Word “Autumn” from the 4 Seasons Set (1199) and used gold foil paper with Double sided adhesive on the back and it finished the inspiration perfectly!
I hope you will try this easy fun autumn card using the leaves from the Fantasy Floral set from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I was fun and easy to make as well as inspiring for the Fall Season. Thank you for joining me today and Happy Crafting!
