The winners will be announced on Friday, May 18th on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog and our Facebook page.

Here is how my card was created.

Step 1  Form tent fold card base 5″ X 6″ from white cardstock.

Step 2  Cover 6″ square piece of cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive.  Decide the order you want your colors to go in then start tearing  (no measuring ) 1 strip of protective adhesive off exposing adhesive sprinkle on Silk Microfine Glitter tap off excess burnish in using your finger.  Make sure to burnish each color before moving on.  Repeat process with each color until entire piece is covered.  Using largest Stitched Fishtail die to cut the piece,  My strips I did on diagonal but you could also do vertical or horizontal.  When exposing adhesive be very careful not to get your fingers in it.

Step 3  Adhere Fishtail to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step 4  From black cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back die cut 2 “hello” using die from Joset’s Words 2 – Thinking of You set.  Adhere to bottom of card front.

Step 5  From white Soft Finish Cardstock create Garden Notes “Love In The Mist”.  Susan has a video to help with this on her Facebook Susan’s Garden Club at this link.

Now it is your turn to try making some art with Silk Microfine Glitter.

Dahlias in Pink

2017-06-15 dahlias in pink

Hello thanks for stopping by my blog.  My post today is a card designed using one of Susan’s Garden new releases at Elizabeth Craft Designs.  I think you could call it “simple but elegant”.

Here is how it was made.

Card base is 4-1/4″ by 5-1/2″ made from white Soft Finish Cardstock.

From black shiny cardstock (also could use Shimmer Sheetz I was just trying to use up some of my scraps) die cut Joset Designs Diamond Background attach to card front using Kids Choice Glue.

Make 2 Garden Notes Dahlias from pink cardstock cutting each petal twice except the smallest and the center piece which you just cut once.  Using loop tool lay pieces face down on molding mat and pull tool down through petals then hold each petal with fine point tweezers (found in Susan’s Garden 4 pc. Tool Kit) pinch each petal down around tweezers.  Assemble flowers using Kids Choice Glue stacking from largest to smallest off setting each layer of petals slightly.  Cut stems and leaves from green cardstock shade and shape.  Attach Dahlias to card front using Kids Choice Glue.

Using ModaScrap Stitched Fishtail (3rd smallest) from black shinny cardstock then from white Soft Finish Cardstock cut 2nd smallest ModaScrap Stitched Fishtail.  Attach white to black using Clear Double Sided Adhesive cut length to fit card.  Stamp Happy Birthday from Joset Designs General Sentiments Stamp set using black ink.  Attach to card front using dimensional tape.
