Hugs – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello lovelies! I am just popping in today to share a quick card with you. This one is made with one of my fave background die cut dies by Elizabeth Craft Designs. I love this heart pattern!

Basically the card consists of the die cut paper piece, matted onto a piece of patterned paper. Then a stamped sentiment from a Joset Designs clear stamp set and some paper flowers and liquid pearls for decoration. Fast, fun and easy!

Hope your day runs as smoothly as this card was easy to create!!!
Have a lovely day,

Spring Flower Cards – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone, time to share my first April step-by-step card project with Elizabeth Craft Designs products. They say that April showers bring May flowers. Well, I took an early start with a bright and flowery card set. I again used both the positive and negative pieces from the die cut images for creating my cards. I´ve used the Crystal Flower Set 1 and the Crystal Flower Overlay Set 2 on my cards and there is even a little bit of the Through the Lens – Wood Series patterned cardstock on my second card (links to all used products at the end of this post).

Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertHere is how I created my cards:
Sanna LippertCut a 4×8.5 inch sized piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock and adhered it onto a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Ink the white paper with Distress Ink in Wild Honey, Worn Lipstick and Victorian Velvet. Sanna LippertUsing the smaller flower die from the Crystal Flower Set 1, cut as many pieces as possible. Use all areas of the inked paper.
Sanna LippertNow cut a second piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock to the same size, attach to Clear Double Sided Adhesive sheet and use the Crystal Flower Overlay Set 2 for cutting as many white overlay pieces as possible. Take the „leftover inner pieces of the overlay flower“ using tweezers and adhere them onto the inked flower pieces. This takes a while, but the effect if definitely worth the effort.

Sanna LippertCut another piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock into a size of 4×5.5 inch, adhere onto a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive sheet and ink green with peeled paint Distress Ink.
Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertAttach all the prepared flowers onto the green inked cardstock piece. Fill all free areas and trim excess at the edges.
Sanna LippertUsing another piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock, again adhered on Clear Double Sided Adhesive, die cut two pieces of Sea Glass with the Jewelry Set 1 and a Hello sentiment.
Sanna LippertInk the pieces with Peeled Paint, Wild Honey and Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. Before adhering the flower piece onto the card base, wrap pink seam binding around the piece and tie into a bow.
Sanna LippertSanna LippertPunch holes into both Sea Glass pieces and adhere the Hello sentiment on the longer piece. Then use golden jump rings (and a pair of pliers) to attach the Sea Glass die cut pieces onto the card. Add a few paper flowers for additional decoration next to the seam binding bow and now the card is done.

Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertFor the second card, created with the Crystal Flower Overlay Set 2 positive images, you will need a 6×6 piece of Through the Lens – Wood Series patterned cardstock (yellow).
Sanna LippertAdhere the flower die cut images onto the cardstock, grouping them toward one side as shown above. Trim away excess at the edges.
Sanna LippertUsing a Stitched Rectangles die (second largest one from the set) run the flowered piece through your die cutting machine.
Sanna LippertTake a piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock and adhere it onto a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive sheet. Use the Alphabet 2 Lower Case die for cutting. Adhere the word ‚hi‘ onto the yellow background and the word ‚there!‘ (with exclamation point) onto the bottom right corner. Use a yellow marker to color in same tone as the patterned background cardstock BEFORE adding the word ‚there!‘). Cut small circles from Clear Double Sided Adhesive and attach them into the middle of each flower. Apply Saffron Silk Microfine Glitter onto those pieces, brush off excess glitter and polish with your fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. The second card is finished.
Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertBy using all the die cut flower pieces we end up with not only one, but two spring flower cards.

I hope you enjoyed reading through this step-by-step photo tutorial and get inspired to try some of these ideas on your own future projects!!

Have fun creating,
Sanna
