Elizabeth Craft Designs November Designer Challenge

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's time for our July Elizabeth Craft Designs Design Team Designer challenge. Check out the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today to see what our talented designers created for the challenge. 

Our challenge this month is ..... 
A Floral Christmas- Flowers and foliage can play a big part in our Christmas decorating. For our challenge this month create a card or project that features either flowers, foliage etc. It can be using traditional flowers and foliage that are used at Christmas time (e.g. poinsettia's, holly, pine boughs etc.) or use something non traditional and make it Christmassy by using Christmas colors or something Christmas related on your card project.

For today's challenge Elizabeth Craft Designs are giving away a $20 Gift Card to use on our website to 3 winners

To enter simply leave a comment on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Facebook Giveaway Blog Post or the Elizabeth Craft Designs Challenge post and tell us Which flower or foliage die or stamp set would you chose to create a Christmas card or decoration.

We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing 

The winners will be announced on Friday, November 23rd on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog and our Facebook page.

For my card today I used the new Krista Schneider Poinsettia Clear Stamp set. I die cut a piece of white cardstock using the second largest rectangle from the Dashing Rectangles die set. I then placed the rectangle in my MISTI stamp platform and positioned the poinsettia to the top right hand corner of the card using black ink.  I then turned the card around so that the bottom left corner was at the top right and stamped again.

Next I stamped the other two poinsettias onto the card using the same method as above but in a different position.

I masked the poinsettia's and stamped the green pine leaves around the card.

The card was layered onto a green panel die cut using the Dotted Scallop Rectangles and then mounted onto a folded pink card using fun foam.

I added the 'Tis the Season sentiment to the centre of the card using black ink.

To finish off the front of the card I added some pink Nuvo Drops.

For the inside of the card I stamped another poinsettia to the bottom left hand corner of the card and then used the A Way With Words - Merry Christmas sentiment to the top right corner, this was die cut using pink and green cardstock and then offset slightly when layered.

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.
