It’s challenge time again! Our Design Team is back this month with lots of inspiration for this month’s challenge … Are you ready?
Our challenge is …………
A Floral Christmas – Flowers and foliage can play a big part in our Christmas decorating. For our challenge this month create a card or project that features either flowers, foliage etc. It can be using traditional flowers and foliage that is used at Christmas time (eg poinsettia’s, holly, pine boughs etc) or use something non traditional and make it Christmassy by using Christmas colors or something Christmas related on your card project.
For our Challenge today we are giving away a $20 Gift Card to use on the Elizabeth Craft Designs website to 3 lucky winners.
To enter, simply leave a comment on this blog post below or on the Designer Challenge post on our Facebook page and answer this question: Which Elizabeth Craft Designs flower or foliage die or stamp set would you chose to create a Christmas card or decoration.
We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing.
The winners will be announced on Friday, November 23rd, here on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.

This project starts with a Merry Christmas or Season’s Greetings die from Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words collection, a purchased Christmas stocking and pre-made wire-beaded leaves. All of the elements are secured to the velvet cuff with gem glue, ideal for adhering die cut Shimmer Sheetz to fabric.
Hello everyone, it´s Sanna here. I really like using Silk Microfine Glitter on Christmas cards and I’d like to share a set with you today.

Need some easy, fast gift ideas? Feel like getting ahead with stocking stuffers, presents for friends and family? My recommendation: Enjoy a lazy browse through the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog archive and you’ll find MANY Shimmer Sheetz embellished boxes, tissue boxes, journals, notepads, and trays, plus cards, ornaments, jewelry, and more. Each tutorial includes a supply list and instructions!
Hello! Samantha back sharing a sweet and simple card that can easily be created to help you get organized this Christmas! That’s right, Christmas is around the corner and I know many of you may not even have it on your mind yet. So for today’s tutorial I wanted to share a card using the new Snowflake die that has a ‘WOW’ factor but was made in only ten minutes.
Hi, It’s Kelly Booth here today with a fun project for treats at Christmas for friends and family. I need to start early on projects as Christmas seems to creep up really fast…
Hello – Welcome! Samantha here, sharing some Christmas-themed inspiration today. I’m loving all things Christmas at the moment. Even my local shopping center has starting displaying Christmas baubles and trees for sale…it’s hard not to get excited about how quickly Christmas Day is approaching. With that being said, I really wanted to create a few more simple cards to add to my Christmas card stash. I went with non-traditional colours to break up how much red, green and Kraft brown I’ve been using lately!
The best thing about winter for me is layering up! I love sweaters and cozy flannels…
Though I am too old for mittens, I’d take them if they were offered to me by someone as adorable as this penguin. I keep using this die set because it is just so cute and so easy to use. Today the penguin is holding a pair of mittens made with a die set from the new A Way With Words release. Did you know that Elizabeth Craft Designs also sells self-adhesive velvet sheets?! It’s a perfect match! This card came together very quickly. In addition to being a fun card to mail, it would be an extra special way to hint at the contents of a gift box containing gloves or mittens!
Hello Crafty Friends, I hope you are well. Marilyn here and the project I want to show you today is a versatile one that can be used as Christmas gift tags, as place cards for Christmas dinner, and when finished as a tag/place card you can remove the sentiment and use the glittery poinsettias as tree ornaments. It’s quite simple to create!
Hi there Artlets! It’s Suzanne here today with an exciting new addition to your creative tool chest! I’ve created four new designs to inspire you during Christmas creating. Each of these is perfect on its own or may be combined with any number of the A Way With Words dies, clear stamps and/or stencils.
