Hello and happy Sunday!!! Today I´m again up over at Elizabeth Craft Designs blog with a clean and simple card that can actually be made in less than ten minutes. Here is what I did:
The idea to this card is actually kind of funny. I´ve had issues with my legs during the past year – more than I would have wanted to have.. The minute I saw the frog legs the sentence „break a leg“ (very ironic to me, as I managed to wrip my cruciate twice in a year) started „haunting“ me in my thoughts :). So I figured I should make a „break a leg“ card with the flog leg die. Said and done!
And it actually turned out exactly the way I had imagined in my mind. Often times there is a general idea and in the end it develops to something different. Not this time! And the Dymo typed sentence on top is the missing focal point that does the trick to this card. I think it´s quite funny the way it looks. I hope other people will also „get the joke“?
There is again a video to go with the card – hope you like it!!
This is my guest design team project for Elizabeth Craft Designs in September. I´ll be sharing another project in October again, so if you are interested in seeing what I made, do stop by again!
Hello and happy Thursday! Today I´m again sharing another card project over at Elizabeth Craft Designs blog. I wanted to create a masculine card for a change and the Lighthouse die cut die seemed perfect for this purpose.
There is again a full written step-by-step tutorial over at Elizabeth Craft Designs blog, so hop over there for more information. Also, they always love to get feedback, so while there, do leave a comment or two.
Like on my previous posts, there is a start-to-finish video also for this card. Hope you enjoy it!
See you next month with another Elizabeth Craft Designs project. Until then, happy crafting and take card and stay healthy!
Hello everyone and happy July!! Today I´m again up over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog with another guest design team card project and tutorial. Here is what I created for this months post:
For this card I used the Planner Essentials die cut dies – I´ve always wanted to use them for cardmaking the moment I saw them. I also added some die cut dies from the Art Journal series as well as some of the ModaScrap ones (still adore them!).
The basic idea of this card was to create a folded card base that withholds a pocket, where one can tuck a gift-card. This particular gift-card was created using the planner dies. The papers are from my older stash (goes all the way back to 2005). But the dies, the stamps and the glitter and adhesives are all by Elizabeth Craft Desings. For steps and more details, do also hop over to the ECD blog to read my full post!
Here is the step-by-step video for you to watch – hope you enjoy it!
This card is very simple to make, once you have all the pieces prepared and it looks very presentative also. A perfect way to send a loved one greetings and a gift-card to say you are thinking about them!
I hope you enjoyed this months tutorial. I´ll be sharing more project here on my blog throughout July and be back at the ECD blog in August again.
By the way, since the papers I used for this card are partly very old and not available anymore, I tried to find you nice alternatives, just see the product links for that.
Hello everyone, I am up over at Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today with a wedding card idea. I wanted to play with red, green and white and create a fun mixed media card and this is what I ended up making.
I´ve recorded a start-to-finish video for you to watch, to give you a better idea of each and every step. Hope you like it!!!
Have fun watching!!!
..annnddd..while you are at it, make MORE CARDS :). These ones are slightly smaller in size, but feature the same elements and techniques.
Now, I´ve used a leaf die on the cards, that is sadly not available at Elizabeth Craft Designs store anymore, but don´t worry, there is another leaf set (Trio of Leaves) that will also do the trick. Just check out the supply list at the end for that.
Also I use a pearlescent watercolour palette on the leaves and flowers, but Elizabeth Craft Desings has a really nice watercolour palette out, that has gorgeous colours in it. So you could use that one for coloring as well.
For more , do read my original post over at Elizabeth Craft Designs blog too :). See you next month with another card idea again!!!
