Since spring is upon us here in Colorado and I can hear birds singing in the trees, a brightly colored bird card seemed like a great way to celebrate. In this project, the bird is adhered to clear fishing line that can be twisted before placing the card in an envelope to create a “spinning” surprise when pulled out. Colorful and fun!
Here’s how I made the card:
They say once we see robins, that it’s the first sign of spring. I have seen robins and a variety of others birds now that the snow has all melted. It was fun creating a scene with a variety of Elizabeth Craft Designs die sets. I have included sets from Joset Designs, Els van de Burgt Studio, and Susan’s Garden Club. Here is how this card was created:
Hi friends, it’s Sandy Diller here today. Have you ever had an idea that you just couldn’t let go of until you’ve made it? Well, that’s my project today. I issued a challenge to myself to make an Easter Bunny from Elizabeth Craft Designs dies in my collection that does not include a bunny. I’ve used lots of different shapes – hope you enjoy my “self-challenge.” If you decide to try it, I’d love to hear from you.
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.
Hello Crafty Friends,
DT Melanie here today to share a die-inspired project. I decided to have a little fun with the Tags & More 1 – Lace die set, along with several other sets. Let’s take a look…
Hey There! This is Elena. I am a brand new member of the Coloring Design Team, thrilled to bring you my very first post. My niece, Hannah, is turning 7 this month and she is quite an adorable character! I couldn’t wait to break out the brand new Bird-Day Party stamps and dies along with the Spiral Circle Pull Card Die, Silk Microfine Glitter and more to make a birthday card that is as fun and wacky as she can be.
Good morning Elizabeth Craft Designs fans~ Birgit here today and I’m happy to be sharing my very first post as a Die Cut Design Team member with you.

Hello everyone and Happy 2017!! It’s time for my first blog post this year and I wanted to create something monochromatic. It has been snowing where I live and the fresh falling snow inspired me to create this card.
Hello everyone, Sanna here today with one last Christmas project for this season. I created a blue-red-white colored gift tag that will hopefully make its recipient happy. This background is so much fun to make!
Mary here with another holiday card. When I first saw this cute little reindeer head, part of the Winter Sweater die set, I wanted to make a card featuring it as all of Santa’s reindeer. This clean and simple card shows those 8 reindeer and Rudolph in the center. Of course his nose had to be special so I added Silk Microfine Glitter to make it glow.
