Hello my crafty friends welcome to my blog.
Once again it is challenge time for Elizabeth Craft Designs Design Team. This month our challenge is to create a Christmas card using flowers and or foliage. My card today uses Susan’s Garden Notes Small Poinsettia, newly released Hawthorne Berries and Pine Boughs along with new Garden Notes Cornucopia.
Be sure to visit Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog to see what all the other design team members have created and enter for a chance to win $20.00 gift card. The question for this month is – Which Elizabeth Craft Designs flower or foliage die or stamp set would you chose to create a Christmas card or decoration.
Here is how my card was created.
Step 1 Cut 2-3 Garden Notes Hawthorne Berries from either green cardstock or white Soft Finish Cardstock. If cut in green cardstock shade using Distress Ink if cut in white color with alcohol markers (green cardstock used here). Susan has a tutorial found here Using red Nuvo Crystal Drops (Autumn Red used here) add berries to branch set aside to dry then add berries to back side and let dry.
Step 2 Cut 2 Garden Notes Cornucopia from light brown cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back. Adhere one on top of the other then shade with Distress Ink. Lay right side down on molding mat using large ball tool rub all over back giving shape.
Step 3 Form 5″ X 7″ card base. Cut patterned paper 4-3/4″ X 6-3/4″ adhere to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
Step 4 Add pop dots down center of Cornucopia adhere to card front.
Step 5 Arrange Garden Notes Hawthorne Berries in Cornucopia adhere using Kids Choice Glue.
Step 6 Create 3 white Garden Notes Poinsettia – Small. Using Kids Choice Glue to attach to arrangement.
Step 7 Cut a few Garden Notes Pine Boughs from green cardstock shade, pinch up needles add to arrangement.
Step 8 Cut Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words – Season’s Greetings twice – 1 from black cardstock and 1 from gold both with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back. Add black to top of card front then adhere gold on top offsetting just a little to give it a shadow.
