ID: ECD - Believe - If You Don't - HB card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: August 8, 2015

Elizabeth Craft Designs  (ECD) has been licensed to make dies of Suzanne Cannon's (Quietfire Design ) calligraphy. I received my sample dies and couldn't wait to use them BIG GRIN. Today's card uses "Believe"

Another productive day at quilling this week... 

The rubber stamp quote, sentiment and design stamps are by Quietfire Design  

 ("If You Don't" 3pce set); ("Happy Birthday Plain and Simple" 7pce set); (Butterflies


I had this edge die cut (Sue Wilson "Gemini - Lyra" set) on my desk... inked it up with Distress browns and embossed with Hot Stuff Burnt Copper Leaves embossing powder. Put it on the edge of my cream toned card and traced the contour, then fussy cut around it. 

Embossed the front using Cuttlebug "Script" embossing folder. The folder is smaller than my card, so cut it apart at the fold and used tape on the open end to create a new hinge and continued embossing BIG GRIN. 

Adhered the die cut to edge of card.

Die cut the "Believe" from a heavy textured leatherette paper (see detail pic below). Adhered a piece of yellow satin ribbon, then my word die cut.

Adhered my quilled elements. PS: The leaves are made from hand decorated and cut paper from a couple years ago....

The Butterfly: I created a silhouette image and then eCut with my electronic cutter. Inked up the stamp using Distress minis ("Mustard Seed") all over,  Here and there with "Ripe Persimmon" and then the body with black soot. Added a thin layer of Stickles "Crystal Ice" and adhered by the body only.

On the inside: stamped the daisy sprig (Stampendous "Daisy Trio" stamp set) using Distress minis and masking off the left side of the card. Stamped the quote using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

Stamped the "Happy Birthday" with various Distress minis and clear embossed.
