Hello again, Jackie here with todays post. I have combined both Joset’s and Annette’s dies today into one very clean and simple card design which is quite quick to make and would be suitable for a number of occasions.
Attach a panel of grey card trimmed at a slight angle to the very bottom of an A2 card blank.
Build the mug of tea as normal with the addition of a tea top. Die cut the very top of the mug into a piece of tea coloured card, fix this to the back of the mug slightly lower than the top then add a piece of white card behind to create the mug of tea effect.
Fix the mug to the card front. Build the bird in whatever colour combo you wish then fix to the top of the mug rim.
Finish off by adding a sentiment to suit your occasion.
I have chosen to create a blue tit of sorts from coloured cardstock but there are so many other possibilities to create different bird types both real and imaginary. I hope you have been inspired today with my very clean and simple design. Happy crafting – Jackie xx
Hello – Samantha here, posting my first blog post for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I was extremely excited when I got an email from Frances telling me that I made this design team. It’s quite a big deal putting yourself out there, so I thought I’d create a Thank You card to show my appreciation.
Hello everyone, Christine here with my first post for Elizabeth Craft Designs in 2018.

It’s Karen here! I’m getting ready to move. I’m not terribly excited about it, so much work, but I am excited about having a reason to create special cards to express gratitude for those who help me. Today’s card project is created for my son who LoVeS Starbucks. He has been with me every step of the way and SO helpful. Using the Sliders and Spinners die set, I designed a card with a special surprise that slides up. Continue Reading

Happy Friday! It’s Karen here with a couple of thank you cards. One of my goals for 2017 is to be more grateful. To show that gratitude, I need more thank you cards! I’m a tad-bit circle-obsessed.
