Good morning ECD fans! Do you struggle with creating masculine cards like I do? Why not create several cards to have on hand that can be used for both men and women.
Joset’s Feathers are perfect for creating these types of cards!
It’s the first Tuesday in April, time for the Die Cut Design Team Designer Challenge.
Our challenge this month is “Glittery Backgrounds” – add Silk Microfine Glitter in some way when creating the background for your card.
Our Design Team have some wonderful ideas on how to create Glittery Backgrounds for you today. Make sure you check their individual blog posts for information on the technique they used. Elizabeth Craft Designs also has many videos on their YouTube channel using Silk Microfine Glitter, including more backgrounds and plenty of other ideas.
For our challenge today we are giving away three 1/2 oz containers of Silk Microfine Glitter in the colors of your choice to three lucky winners.
To enter, simply leave a comment on this blog post below and answer this question: What is your favorite technique to use with Silk Microfine Glitter?
Winners will be selected in a random drawing.
The winners’ names will be announced on Friday, April 7 here on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.

It’s been a long while since I’ve been the guest designer on our blog. It’s fun to be in my studio for two whole weeks instead of on the road. Today’s project is my way of celebrating the new Feathers die set as well as Tim Holtz’s brand new Distress Oxide inks – a great combo!
The Distress Oxide inks are just amazing. I love how they respond with water, how you can combine colors without messing up, and how easy it is to get terrific results. I used them for a spattered looking background on my card as well as for the banner and feathers.
Welcome to the ECD blog. This is Anita here. I have to think long and hard when it comes to making masculine cards and most of the time I struggle to decide which elements create a proper one. Elizabeth Craft Designs has some beautiful die sets that can be transformed with simple colouring to make cards for the men in our lives.
I have a very elegant masculine card today. I used several layers to build my card and chose the new Distress Oxide inks to colour the feathers.
It’s time for our March Die Cut Design Team Designer Challenge. Our challenge this month is ‘It’s in the Box!’ We are going 3D this month, creating and decorating boxes using any of the 5 new box dies Elizabeth Craft Designs released in January.
For our challenge today we are giving away “a box die of choice” to 3 winners. The winners will get to select which box die they would like to receive from the following: Star Pillow Box, Triangle Treat Box, Lantern Box, Bonbon Box or Pillow Box with Handle.
