We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing 

The winners will be announced on Friday, June 23 on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.


For my cards today I decided to use the Krista Schneider Bird-day Party clear stamps with coordinating dies.

For the sentiments on each card I used the "happy bird-day" sentiment from the stamp set and layered this using circles from the Stitched Circles and Dotted Circles die sets. I added some twine underneath the sentiment for some added interest.

Here is a close up of my third card is the card series.

I used the new ModaScrap Thinking About ... Polinesia and Rio De Janeiro 6 x 6 Paper Packs for my designer paper, using the straight die from the Fishtail Borders die set. I positioned the die a little off from the centre to get an interesting shape and die cut this and then used my trimmer to cut the remaining edge on the right hand side.

I did the same thing with Soft Finish Cardstock which matched the colors of designer paper I used and layered the solid panel under the designer paper before attaching to the card.

For the inside of my cards I used the negative off cut from when I die cut the designer paper for the front of the card. I trimmed it down slightly and then added it to the lower part of my card.

I added sentiments from the General Sentiments and Occasions clear stamp sets using black ink.

I hope you enjoyed my project today. Don't forget to check out the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog to see all the wonderful creations by our talented designers and for a change to win the giveaway.

These are so darn cute. My 9 yr old granddaughter scraps with me and I just recently started letting her use my cutting machines. She loves to color and create. What a wonderful gift could be for her.
