Let Us Be Grateful


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.

Garden Notes - Poinsettia (1090) 6 piece set 

 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.
Seeds of Thought Red Rubber Stamp - Let Us Be Grateful (RS005)
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 circle.

 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.
