The Susan’s Garden Design Team are back today with our final Designer Challenge for the year.
Christmas is now only a couple of weeks away. When people think of Christmas and colors, the most traditional colors that come to mind are the colors red and green. For our challenge this month, our design team are to include the colors red, green and white with either gold or silver on their projects. It doesn’t have to be a Christmas card as these colors can be used throughout the year.
For our Challenge today we are giving away a $20 Gift Card to use on the Elizabeth Craft Designs website to 3 winners.
To enter, simply leave a comment on this blog post below and answer this question: “What Susan’s Garden products would you like to find under your Christmas tree this year?”
We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing.
The winners will be announced on Friday, December 15th, 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.
Today I present to you a card that I just loved creating. The Black-Eyed Susan is such a special part of the Susan’s Garden collection, and like other flowers in the sunflower family it symbolizes radiant warmth and faith.
I thought that the sentiment, “Be the sunshine in someone’s rainy day,” was the perfect way to express my idea: Every person can be just like the sun shining on a sunflower, providing reassurance and emanating positive energy and strength, elevating a loved one’s mood.
Writer and blogger Melanie Koulouris says :
“Happiness blossoms when one plants seeds of love and kindness in the hearts of others.”
Inspired by such thoughts, I present to you today my latest creation using the Dahlia flower, a flower that symbolizes everlasting bonds and commitment. With its multitude of petals, the Dahlia is much like life with all its varied experiences.
I have made this creation using Susan’s Garden Notes Dahlia 2, Garden Notes Ladder Fern, Garden Notes Ostrich Fern, and Garden Notes Maidenhair Fern dies.
Hello Friends, Piyanki here with some Black Eyed Susans from Susan’s Garden. Black Eyed Susans are from the sunflower family and at a glance they look similar. But the proportions are not the same; the layering and shaping of the petals are different, too. This was a fun card to make and I had a particularly good time creating the background. Here’s how I created and assembled this card:
Hello to all
It’s Anita here to take you on a stroll in Susan’s Garden. It’s blooming flowers everywhere and it’s all the more amazing because now you can make them using the dies available at the Elizabeth Craft Designs.
Today, I am showing you a trio of vibrant Black Eyed Susans in a wooden fruit crate.
All the dies are now available at the ECD web store. Susan has posted many videos showing how to create the flowers in her collection on her Facebook page. (She’s been doing a Facebook Live tutorial each week and will be taking a break during the holidays, but they all remain in the archive.) Don’t miss them!
Good Morning. This is Selma Stevenson today and I have a pretty card designed using Susan’s Garden Notes Black-Eyed Susan die set. Also, I want to show you how to mail the dimensional cards you create.
