Quick Birthday Card Using The New Release!

June 8, 2019

Hello everyone, it’s Joset here as your guest designer!

I’m very excited to be sharing one of the new dies in my latest collection for my project today. I’ll be using the Cat in combination with the Party Accessories from my previous collection, the Balloons and a few other dies. It’s a quick and easy card to create and specially fun for kids and cat lovers. Lets’ get started!

Instructions:

  1. Create a A2 size card from White Soft Finish Cardstock.
  2. Cut a rectangle from patterned paper measuring 4 x 5 1/4 and adhere to card front.
  3. Cut a stitched rectangle from White Soft Finish Cardstock using the 3rd largest die from the Stitched Rectangles die set.
  4. Stamp Happy Birthday with Black Ink.
  5. Die cut all the pieces for the cat and party accessories from White Soft Finish Cardstock and color with Distress Ink. For more information on how to assemble the cat, check out my YouTube video HERE.
  6. Die cut balloon and color. Ad string and adhere balloon to the cat’s tail.
  7. Adhere cat and balloon to card front as shown.

That’s the card! I hope you have fun with this cute new collection! Join the Elizabeth Craft Designs Family Page on Facebook to share what you’re making!

How To Create This Zebra Pop-Up Card

February 16, 2019

Hello everyone,

It’s Joset here today sharing this super cute Zebra Pop-Up card. I really love the General Pop-Up dies, they are so fun and versatile! You can really turn almost any die into a pop-up. Today I decided to use this cute little zebra and make a “Love you just the way you are” card. Make sure to check out this video HERE that I created a while ago showing the General Pop-Up die set.

Instructions:

  1. Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock 90LB measuring 8 1/2″ x 11″ and score at 5 1/2″. Make sure the textured side is on the inside of the card.
  2. From the Adventure Edges 1 or 2 die set, use the cloudy looking edge to die cut a stencil. I used a piece of leftover backing from the ECD Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheets.
  3. Create a cloudy background on the inside of the card (top part) using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and a round Mini Ink Blending tool. For more info on how to create the background, click on this VIDEO.

4. Cut another stencil using the grass edge die from the Tree die set (or use the grass edge die from the Adventure Edges 1). Using the same technique as above, create a grass background on the bottom part of the card using Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks. Start from the top with Twisted Citron and work your way down. I used Mowed Lawn at the bottom 3 rows of grass.

5. Using the bottom left pop up die from the picture below, die cut a pop up in the middle of your score line. For more info, check out the video HERE.

6. Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock 90LB measuring 9 1/4″ x 12″ and score at 6″. This card will be used to cover the whole of the pop up. Adhere your pop-up card on the inside. See picture below.

Unknown-11

Now it’s time to decorate your pop up!

7. Cut a grass boarder from White Soft Finish Cardstock. Color with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. Adhere the grass boarder to the bottom of your card.

8. Create your zebra and adhere to the pop-up. For more info on how to create the zebra, watch this video HERE.

9. Cut a heart from white cardstock using the second smallest heart die from the Fitted Hearts set. Stamp sentiment with black ink. Color heart with Festive Berries Distress Ink. Adhere to card as shown.

Optional:

  • Decorate the outside of the card.
  • Die cut a rectangle from white cardstock using one of the Fitted Rectangle dies. Adhere on the grass part of the card to write a note.

I hope you enjoyed creating this card as much as I did.

Happy crafting!
