Created: August 1, 2015

Elizabeth Craft Designs  (ECD) has been licensed to make dies of Suzanne Cannon's (Quietfire Design ) calligraphy. I received my sample dies yesterday and couldn't wait to use them BIG GRIN. These dies will start being available around the end of July 2015. Today's cards use "Best Wishes" & "Season's Greetings"

The other dies, embossing folders, Peel offs, glitter & sticky tape, are all products from ECD. The rubber stamp quote & design element rubber are by Quietfire Design  

 ("Christmas is a Piece..."); ("Tiny Christmas Wishes" 3pce set)


Top folded my white card and ran through my machine with Spellbinders Grand scalloped die

Die cut the smaller scalloped rectangle from white Ruche cardstock, adhered to front.

Adhered the green gauze ribbon.

Stamped the poinsettia (Stubby Stampers) using Versamark on Terra Skin "Paper" (not actually paper but made from stone) and embossed with "Queen's Gold" embossing powder carefully. But even so, it warpped a bit which I liked.... Spritzed with water and sprinkled with Brushos. Dried naturally. Fussy cut around the outside edge. Adhered to ribbon adding some picot ribbon ends.

Die cut the "Season's Greetings" from white cardstock, inked with Distress "Festive Berry" and embossed with "Red Dragon" embossing powder.

Stamped the poinsettia on white cardstock using Versamark and embossed with the Queen's Gold. Painted with Acrylic tole art paints. Fussy cut around the edges and adhered to front.

Die cut my words from red fun foam and heated up to shrink... Adhered on to picot edged ribbon ends and adhered under Poinsettia.

On the inside: Stamped the quote on white cardstock using Distress pads "Festive Berry" and hitting here and there with "Pine Needles". Clear embossed.

Stamped the poinsettia with the same pads and moved some of the inks around with a damp brush.

Added green gel dots around the edge (mimicking "French Knot" embroidery...
