A set of Christmas cards – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone, it´s my last guest blog post time over at Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today and I´m sharing a set of clean and simple Xmas cards over there. I created quite a few Christmas cards this year, but I still ran out of them, so I needed a few simple, fast and easy ideas to create a few more. So for these cards I deciced to use mainly just the die cut dies and colored cardstock. So if you are looking for fast-to-make cards, this might be exactly what you are looking for.

Here is how I created the cards:

  1. Die cut Soft Finish Cardstock with die cut dies of your choice.
  2. Arrange onto card bases and adhere.
  3. Stamp the sentiment.
  4. Decorate with liquid or glitter pearls. Done!

For the above card I also used a small piece of patterned paper, because it reminded me of snowfall. But you could also use colored cardstock (blue) instead and adherd the die cut snowflakes on place.

I´ve also recorded a start-to-finish video of the steps for you to watch! I hope you enjoy watching it and give this idea a try!

This is my last guest blog post and it has been such a joy creating with and for Elizabeth Craft Designs the past year. I hope you have enjoyed my bi-montly projects and got inspired to create a card or two!

Wishing you all a lovely holiday season and
happy crafting,

Christmas greetings card

Hello everyone and happy weekend!!! How about a quick Christmas card share to start this weekend off? I again played with some Elizabeth Craft Designs products and combined those with Brushos. This is the result of the creative session:

I first die cut the trees from white cardstock and then added blue, green and purple (full product list at the end of this post) Brusho on top. After that I just sprayed some water mist onto the surface and watched how the color spread. I love to watch the reaction and how the color develops on paper.

Next I inked the background (a in size cut piece of white cardstock) with Iced Spruce Distress Oxide color and after that added some stamped snowflakes – same ink color – here and there onto the background.

Now I only needed to arrange the pieces onto the background and glue everything together. I finished the card off with a stamped sentiment (on a fussy cut banner) and some faux stitching.

Wishing you all a lovely (and creative) weekend!!!

Happy crafting,
Sanna
