December 25


Hi everyone,

It's my turn to post a tutorial on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today. Did you know there is only 17 days until Christmas!!!!! Do you still need to make a Christmas card or two??? Today I am sharing  how to create the Christmas above in case you are in need of some inspiration.

Here's how I created my card:


1. Die cut the following:
  • (1) Large Dotted Scallop Rectangle from True Green Soft Finish Cardstock.
  • (1) Circle Background from White Soft Finish Cardstock
  • (2) Sprig from the Sprig with Berries die set from True Green Soft Finish Cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the back.
  • (2) Solid Ornaments from the Ornaments 4 die set using Ladybug Red Soft Finish Cardstock
  • (1) Each of the Decorative Ornament from the Ornaments 4 die set from Gold Metallic Shimmer Sheetz that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the back.
  • (1) A Way with Words Dec 25 sentiment from Ladybug Red Soft Finish Cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the back.



2. Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock that is slightly larger than the Circle Background. 
  • Adhere Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape to the front of the cardstock.
  • Remove the protective backing from the adhesive piece, lay the Circle Background on top of the adhesive being careful not to touch the adhesive anyway inside the background.
  • Cover the adhesive using Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. Return the excess glitter to the jar and polish the glitter into the adhesive using your fingers.
  • Trim any excess cardstock so it is flush with the frame of the background.

3. Layer the background onto the True Green Dotted Scallop Rectangle Panel.
  • Cut a piece of Ladybird Red Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 4 1/2 inches x 11 1/2 inches. Score along the 11 1/2 inch side at 5 3/4 inches and fold to create a 4 1/2 inch x 5 3/4 inch top folding card.
  • Layer the background panel to the front of the folded red card.


4. Remove the adhesive from the green sprigs and adhere them to the top part of the circle background so that they overlap slightly.
  • Cut off the top section of the red ornaments and then layer the Gold Metallic Shimmer Sheetz overlay pieces over the top of the red ornaments.
  • Adhere ornaments to card using foam tape. Refer to photo above for placement.
  • Place a piece of gold border from the Gold Border Assorted Peel Off Stickers from each ornament to one of the branches on the sprigs.
5. Adhere the A Way with Words Dec 25 sentiment to the lower right hand corner of the card.




   6. The Inside of the Card: 



Die cut the following: 
  • (1) Large Dotted Scallop Rectangle from True Green Soft Finish Cardstock.
  • (1) 2nd largest Rectangle from the Stitched Rectangles die set using White Soft Finish Cardstock
  • (1) Solid Ornaments from the Ornaments 4 die set using Ladybug Red Soft Finish Cardstock
  • (1) Circle Decorative Ornament from the Ornaments 4 die set from Gold Metallic Shimmer Sheetz that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the back.
7. Layer the white Stitched Rectangle panel to the green Dotted Scallop Rectangle. Adhere into inside of card.

  • Using the "Christmas Greetings" sentiment from the Winter Sentiments Clear Stamp set stamp onto the top right hand side of the white panel using black ink. (Refer to photo above for placement)
  • Assemble ornament as per instructions in step 4 and adhere to the left hand side of the card.
  • Add gold border from the Gold Border Assorted Peel Off Stickers from the top of the ornament to the top of the white rectangle.
