Teen Boy Birthday Card

April 14, 2017

Hi everyone,

It´s Sanna here, and it´s my turn to post a tutorial for the Die Cut Design Team. Today I decided to share with you a teen boy birthday card idea. My son recently celebrated his birthday and this is the card I made for him. It is fairly easy to make and by changing the colors you can easily create a card for a teen girl using the same idea.

Happy Bird-Day Card with Gingham Background

March 27, 2017

Hello friends,

Welcome to the ECD blog. I am Anita here today for the Colouring Design Team. Birthdays can be so much fun and creating cards for this occasion is a beautiful way to show affection for the birthday person. I love making sweet birthday cards and Elizabeth Craft Designs has some amazing stamps and dies to make your birthday projects look awesome.

For my card I tried a new technique for creating a gingham effect background with alcohol inks. It’s easy to do because the lines don’t have to be perfect. It provides a colourful base to the stamped images and dies.

Rose Pocket Trifold Card

February 2, 2017

Hi everyone,

It’s my turn to post a tutorial on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today. My card today is inspired by a Christmas card I received from my sister-in-law. As soon as I saw the card I knew that I had to make something similar using the new ModaScrap Rose Pocket die. I love it when you find there are ways to use a die other than for what it was intended.

“Summer” mini-album

June 25, 2016

Elizabeth Craft Designs Suzanne Cannon Summer Graphic 45 mini album summer Mother Goose Kathy Jo Wood

Happy first week of Summer to my Northern Hemisphere crafty friends! Summer is easily my favorite season and it always seems that the time flies by. This year I decided to create a little mini album to capture some of the happy summer memories.  The album is the first album I have created and it was so much fun…I know I will make more! Perhaps some of my family and friends will see a mini album in their future.  (big smile!)

The mini album was not designed by me (I found the instructions on Pinterest) so I will provide a link to the album instruction at the end of this post. However, I can share photos of my take on the album…and I have many to share…so let’s start!

The front of the album with Suzanne Cannon’s lovely Summer die and bright and cheerful Graphic 45 papers:

The back of the album has Celebrate (because I think every summer day is a celebration of season):

The mini album is accordion style…so neat!

The album contains panels for photos or journaling.

Following the cheerful theme I used the “happy” die on the front inside panel:

“Remember” definitely had to be used on this wee album…

…as did “Memories” (so pretty!!)

The heart is elegant and happy (had to be added!)…

…and “Dream” (one of my favorite dies!) will be used with a photo of my sweet puppy sleeping…

Hydrangea Birthday Card

June 13, 2016

Card Front

Mary here to share a card with a lot of dimension. The hydrangea flowers are on dome shaped platforms to pop them up; the shaped petals make them look more realistic. I coated the sentiment with puff paint, then mounted it on a popped up label. I added texture to the paper using clear embossing powder. I also added subtle designs to the label with glitter embossing powder through a Stage It Stencil. Note: the flowers on the card may not exactly match those found in nature.
