Created: July 17, 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 card uses "Hello"

The other dies, embossing folders, Peel offs, glitter & sticky tape, etc if used are all products from ECD. The rubber stamp quotes & sentiments are by Quietfire Design  

("Always Be My Friend" 3pce set); ("The Woods Would Be Very Silent" 5pce set); ("Butterfly Circles - May the Wings" 5 pce set); ("Happy Birthday Plain and Simple" 7 pce set); ("We Cannot Tell..." 2pce set)



I die cut 3 tags using the set "Tags and More 3 - Leaves" from white cardstock. Sponged Distress "Shabby Shutters around the edges and the "Scattered Straw" in the central area. Embossed the first tag using "Curly Leaves" embossing folder. Hit the high points with the Shabby Shutters pad.

Die cut the daisy type flower "Big Flower Set 1" from white cardstock and hit with "Mustard Seed", then some "Dried Marigold". Embossed the flower using "Swirly Curves" embossing folder and hit the high points with "Spiced Marmalade". Adhered the center circle and added dots using a Brown Viva pen. The stem and leaves are from the "Daisy" set.

Die cut the butterfly - the filigree piece from a gelli plate print I had made eons ago using a hand made stencil of my calligraphy. (this one was a reject...). The solid part of the butterfly had a piece of adhesive attached to the cardstock prior die cutting, then the filigree adhered to that and "Warm Diamonds" silk micro fine glitter sprinkled and burnished.

Die cut the "Hello" from white cardstock and heavily colored with the yellow/orange pads and clear embossed.

Stamped the word "Sunshine" onto white cardstock, masking off the rest of the sentiment, clear embossed. Trimmed down and punched the ends using a 6 scalloped flower shape. Sponged some yellow around the edges. Added the 4 pale green rhinestones and adhered part of the Hello to the white tag.

Used the "Oval Dots Frame Edges" die set to cut my hinges. First side folding my white cardstock, then placing my die about a 1/4 inch away from the folded edge and running through my machine cutting both pieces at the same time. The hinge is the negative piece of the die cut... hit with Distress "Vintage Photo". Adhered my panels together - reversing the fold for the third panel.

Adhered my die cut and stamped elements on the front.

Page 2: Stamped the quote with the black. Stamped the leaf springs (Stampendous "Leaf Sprig") using the Distress mini pads in various greens, misting with water and stamping. I then doodled around the leaves using a black fine tipped pen. Added copper Viva pen dots.

Die cut the bird and hit with the stamp pads adding the beak and eye using a black marker. Adhered to 2nd page.

Page 3: Stamped the quote and sentiments using the black and clear embossed. Adhered some of the drop out leaves from the border along the side.

as a final touch added a large white half pearl to the front and tied some green narrow satin ribbon bows for the 2nd and 3rd pages.
