Designer Challenge Elizabeth Craft Designs! Christmas Fun with Character Dies

Good morning!
This month Joset released some adorable Christmas Character Dies
that are perfect for just about any craft for the holidays!



This is my first time creating a 'card in a box' and I will say that I see many more in my future - especially with those cute dies!

I started by used kraft cardstock as my base then used the 6x6 'It's Christmas Time' paper pack for the accent papers!


 I dies cut the Santa using red and pink and black cardstock and used the 5 x 12 double sided adhesive with the Cool Diamond silk microfine glitter for the white parts.  I also used black gems for his eyes and buttons.  
I die cut the candy canes from the Hot Chocolate die and also used the double sided adhesive and glitter!


I added some Snowflakes (also using double sided adhesive and glitter) and the Merry Christmas from the Words 5 - Winter Wishes with double sided adhesive and True Red silk microfine glitter


This adorable polar bear was die cut from the soft finish 85lb white cardstock and I used gems for his eyes!



The charming little penguins were cut from scraps of paper I had and gems for eyes - they are so cute!
On each panel I created icicles by using the overspill from the hot chocolate die, glitter and double sided adhesive!


The back I covered in cardstock and left a place for us to sign and used the snowflakes and candy canes from the hot chocolate die  


 
 I took a photo in the sunlight just to show off the glitter!


What is really cool about these cards is they fold down and fit in a regular card envelope - so cool!

Good morning!
Christmas is coming - 134 days to be exact!
 Joset has created some fabulously adorable and festive dies and stamps that you can check out here

Here is the layout I created


 From the new releases I used Snowflakes, Winter Ornaments and the Words 5 - Winter Wishes.  I also used the clear double sided adhesive and the cool diamond and true red silk microfine glitter from Elizabeth Craft, chipboard from Creative Embellishments and paper from Kaisercraft


I LOVE the double sided adhesive sheets - makes adding the glitter so easy! and the glitter added the perfect touch to the wonderful CE chipboard


Whats Christmas without a little glitter?

Summer fun with Elizabeth Craft Designs

Good morning! 
I, like many others, buy the entire release of a paper line! Often I am left with one or two full sheets and a bunch of pieces after I have created a few projects. So what do I do? I die cut lots of shapes using Elizabeth Craft Designs dies!!!! The following project was created using a couple of sheets and scrap pieces and lots of dies and a sketch I found online at Lets Get Sketchy.
