Lace Box with Cards

Hello friends,

A warm welcome to the ECD blog. I am Anita here with my first post and before I begin, I would love to thank Elizabeth Craft Designs for including me in the team. It’s just been a few days and I am already loving it around here.

The new year has brought in many new and amazing dies and stamps and you will surely love them. I especially like the Valentine’s Day collection. It has all the beautiful designs to pep up your projects for the season of love.

Today, I am showing you my most favourite Lace Pocket die.  I have used this to create a Notecard Box that will hold cards and I loved the idea of creating a lacy box to give it a very feminine look. I have made it in purse style.

Do have a look at my creation, followed by more pictures to show how I made it.

Play

Have you seen the new stamps and matching die sets available soon from Elizabeth Craft Designs? Good Morning, this is Selma Stevenson. Today I have designed a card using the Jungle Cuties stamp set, and as you can tell in the picture the stamped and colored animals, bird, and branch have been die cut for easy placement on the card.  I have also used one of the new A Way With Words die sets for the word ‘Play’.  Here is how I created this card.

Sending Kisses by Judi Kauffman

Sending Kisses
By Judi Kauffman

Who says that Valentines have to be red, pink, and white and filled with hearts and cupids? I know that’s the norm, but I thought it would be fun to go in a different direction. Besides, who says that ‘Sending Kisses’ is only for Valentine’s Day in the first place? I think this project would serve well all year. You can send kisses for birthdays and anniversaries, with get well wishes, and when there’s no occasion whatsoever.

Because

 

Hello Artlets! It’s Suzanne here today and I’m so excited to share a card using one of the brand new dies!  We have 20 new words that can be used alone or combined with lots of other dies in the A Way With Words Collection. In addition to the new dies, we’re introducing a series of stencils that can be used as feature elements and as backgrounds. Stay tuned to see lots more examples in the coming weeks!

For my first card, I chose this simple format that makes a bold statement. There are so many reasons you might send this card.  Because…. I love you, you’re my friend, I can’t stop thinking about you, you’ve been so helpful…. the list is endless!

This card can be easily changed to any colours your heart desires. I fussed with this card for hours, adding ribbon, removing ribbon, adding the heart element from the Calligraphic Elements 2, removing the heart element and on and on it went.  My workspace looked like a bomb had gone off in a craft store.  Yes, glitter was involved, too!  But the more you add, the more you overpower the elegant beauty of the classical broad-edged letterforms and flourishes so I went back to ‘simple’ and here is the final result!

Below are the steps to create this card.
