Hi there! It’s Suzanne here today with some fun and easy projects for the next time you have a dinner party or special dinner event – perhaps even a wedding!
It’s a wonderful touch to leave a copy of the menu at each place setting or to display a single copy in the middle of the table. Create a tent-fold card with the word Menu die cut for the front and the list of food on the back or inside. So many possibilities!
The look can be rustic or elegant. I love the contrast between the kraft paper and the elegant white lettering, and with a single rose and pastel colors the look is totally different. The color combo is up to you!
Welcome to our May Die Cut Design Team Designer Challenge. This time round we have a technique to share with you that uses dies in a different way.
Our Challenge this month is ….. “Being Negative” – Normally when we use dies to cut we get a positive piece (the actual die cut) and a negative piece (the leftover piece or pieces that we often throw away). In many cases the negative pieces can also make interesting card components, and it is these pieces that are the focus of the Challenge cards. The Design Team can also incorporate the positive die cut piece if they wish.
For our Challenge today we are giving away a Background Die Prize Pack that includes the Heart Background, Circles, Background, Chevron Background and Diamond Background to 3 winners.
To enter, simply leave a comment on this blog post below and answer this question: What are some project ideas where you could use die cut scrap pieces when crafting?
We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing.
The winners will be announced on Friday, May 5, here on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.
Now let’s take a look at the wonderful creations our talented Design Team have created for the Challenge this month. For more information about the cards, click on the designer’s name under each card to be taken to the designer’s blog post and will open up in a new window.
