It is time for the April Elizabeth Craft Designs, Design Team Color Challenge. This month our challenge is to design a card plus to complete the inside. You can see all the cards created by the Design Team on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog at this LINK.
For today's challenge, Elizabeth Craft Designs is giving away a "$20 gift card to use on the Elizabeth Craft Designs website” to 3 winners.
To enter simply leave a comment on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Challenge post (LINK above) and tell us "What is your favorite or most used sentiment when creating a card?”
Three lucky winners will be selected in a random drawing. The winners will be announced on Friday, April 21 on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.
For my card I chose the Krista Schneider Bird-day Party stamps for the theme. I also used Krista's Honey Bear stamp set.
This is a 6-inch square card. Use a 5 1/2 inch square piece of card stock for the front of the card. Use Susan's Earth & Sky Stencil to sponge on clouds and grass, as shown in the picture above.
I created a Slider Card using the Joset Designs Slider and Spinners die set. For instructions on how to create a Slider/Spinner card, you can watch the Els van de Burgt Technique Friday with Els Spinner Card Video at this LINK. For the Slider, use the Scalloped Heart Die set to die cut the heart. Use the sentiment from the Bird-day Party stamp set and stamp it inside the heart using black ink. Assemble the slider as shown on the video.
Use the Bird-day Party stamp set to stamp the birds, gifts and balloons. Color with either markers or watercolors. Die cut the pieces using the matching dies.
Use the Honey Bear stamp set to stamp three trees. Color and cut out with the matching dies. (Note: The tree i created is the branch that has the bee hive attached. Die cut the branches and carefully cut off the bee hive, to create trees.)
Attach all the Bird-day Party and Honey Bear tree die cut pieces to the card as shown.
Use Susan's CountryScapes Cloud & Sky die set to die cut grass for the bottom of the card.
Use the Els van de Burgt Corners 1 die set to die cut two blue corners and attach to the top of the card.
To complete the inside of the card, I used the A Way With Words Happy Birthday die set. It was die cut using blue card stock. One of the birds from the Bird-day Party was attached on the lower right corner.
