Hello Friends and welcome the Elizabeth Crafts Blog. Today I have a floral card to share with you, designed using some of my favorite floral dies
I started by die cutting leaves, and florals coloring them using Smoky Gray Versa Ink and Victorian Velvet Distress ink. The Lacy Leaf was cut from gray cards tock as was the fern from the Berries and Branches.
i added a touch of Victorian Velvet ink to the center of the leaves just for a bit of detail
I added some prills from my stash and dabbed a bit of snow paste on top, tucking in the lacy leaf and the fern to add more layers a few detail shots above and below.
I would love to see some of your beautiful cards designed using Florals 7, I hope you have enjoyed my card today.

Step 5 – Die cut and assemble 5 flowers. I used coordinating papers and white cardstock with florals 7, Florals 9, Florals 8, and Florals 3. I used the watercolor palette on the white flowers after I had assembled them

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Thank You Gift Box.
To create my gift box, I’ve used dies from the Paper Flower Collection, Els van de Burgt Studio as well as stamps and dies from Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my gift box at home.
Step One. Choose a piece of patterned paper out of the Worn Wood Paper Pack. Die cut the Pizza Box from the Pizza Box die out of the patterned paper. Ink the edges of the pizza box using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Two. From the Pizza Box Die, die cut the scalloped square out of a piece of kraft cardstock. Ink the edges of the square using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Three. From the Pizza Box Die, die cut the stitched square out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Distress the edges of the square. Ink the edges of the square using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Four. Choose another piece of patterned paper from the Worn Wood Paper Pack. From the Pizza Box Die, die cut the 2 1/2″ circle out of the patterned paper. Die cut the stitched circle out of a piece of kraft cardstock. Distress the edges of both circles. Ink the edges of the circles using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Five. Die cut a 3/4″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtail out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the fishtail down to 3″. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the Thank You sentiment from the Build Your Own Sentiment 1 Stamp Set and stamp on the right hand side of the fishtail. Distress the edges of the fishtail. Ink the edges of the fishtail using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Six. From the Florals 7 die, die cut the extra large, large, medium and small flowers out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Milled Lavender Distress Ink over the entire surface of the flowers.
Step Seven. From the Florals 7 die, die cut the large leaf and medium leaf twice out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of all the leaves.
Step Eight. Assemble your box.
Step Nine. Adhere the stitched square to the scalloped square. Foam square the scalloped square to the top of the box.
Step Ten. Adhere the stitched circle to the patterned paper circle. Foam square the patterned paper circle to the middle of the stitched square.
Step Elven. Adhere the Thank You banner to the middle of the circles.
Step Twelve. Shape your leaves and flowers. Adhere the flowers together.

Hello friends and welcome! It is Karan here. Today I am sharing a layout with you. Hubby has been up north tending to our build and sent me a couple photos. I really wanted to scrapbook them so I came up with this.
I began by giving the main paper a trim down to 11.75 x 11.75 and I white washed it with paper paste mixed with a bit of gesso.
I die cut the fitted rectangles in the largest side and then cut three frames from this chipboard to give the frame extra strength. I then added gesso to the frame, added dabs of Allegro Indiano paint and dabbed that with Paper Texture paste. The result is amazing!
I die cut 8 large florals from florals 7, and 8 medium using the Soft Finish Cardstock and colored with Speckled Egg distress ink in the middle. I also colored the foam bud to match.
Sfter shaping and adding the stamens, I added snow paste to the flowers.
The leaves I got a great texture on them by adding a bit more shaping to the tips of the leaves. I colored these with Vintage Photo and Speckled Egg distress ink. I love how they turned out.
I really wanted to frame the photo of our driveway up north so I set the flowers in corners of the frame.
I hope you enjoyed my inspiration today. I would love to see your take on your winter photos.

It is Karan here to share a project with you and today I am sharing a card i designed using the new Volume II Floral die collection
The card measures 6.5 in. x 7 in. its final measurement, cut papers to fit that size
These dies are amazing to work with, cut like butter and using the Soft Petal cardstock to cut color and mold these flowers make it super easy to create any flower from the collection
To start off with we will need to cut three sets of each die from the soft petal cardstock and then being to color. For the flowers, color the outside side of the flowers using Red Geranium Archival Ink adding Leaf Green in the middle.
I cut some smaller flowers from Florals 7 and left them white adding a small pale yellow stamen to the center.
for the Leaves, i used Leaf Green Archival Ink and colored them leaving a bit of white for highlight
The square in the center of the card, i placed a square of adhesive ( 5×5 ) and covered it with cool Diamond Glitter making sure i burnished after shaking off the excess glitter. After matting this on white cardstock i colored some seam binding and wrapped it around the card.
I inserted some stamens in the smaller flowers coloring them with Leaf green
I created two roses from and two smaller flowers to add more dimension to my card. I cut out a stitched fishtail on white cardstock using the second to smallest die and then stamped a sentiment using black archival ink.. and here is my final project
