I want to wish all my Blogging Friends a very Merry Christmas. This is the card I designed for my Design Team Post For Susan's Garden
on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog
. I have loved creating most of my Christmas cards with Susan's Garden Notes Poinsettia and Whitpine Bough & Pine Cone dies.
For the background, I used Oval dies from the new Elizabeth Craft Designs release.
Here are instructions for creating this card:
Use a 6"x6" card base. Add a slightly smaller piece of design paper of your choice to the front.
Die cut Susan's Garden Notes Poinsettia
three times to create a full poinsettia. Glue the three large die cuts
together, alternating petals. Add as many of the smaller petals as you
want to create fullness. Add Bracts to the center of the flower.
There is a die for the Bracts, but I used Prills.
Die cut Stitched Ovals
in both white and green card stock.
Use Susan's "Let Us Be Grateful" rubber stamp
for the sentiment. Use a black marker to color only the first sentence
on this stamp. Use black ink to stamp it on the smallest white oval
Die cut Fitted Frames 4 Curvy Ovals
using green card stock.
Layer ovals as shown, using dimensional tape on back of second largest white oval.
Layer Susan's Garden Notes Whitepine Boughs
on lower left corner of oval frame.
Add die cuts of the Elizabeth Craft Designs Berry Branches,
using brown card stock. Use Viva Red Pearl Pen to create the red berries.
Add the poinsettia
you created with a dimensional glue dot.
Create two pine cones
created with Susan's Garden Notes
Whitepine Bough & Pine Cone dies.
Add them to the right of the poinsettia.
Use the Fitted Frames 1, Lace Rectangles
dies to die cut the four white corners, to frame the card.
It has been a lot of fun creating Christmas cards with Susan's dies.
