Framed Poinsettias

Hello Everyone my post today is a Birthday Card I did for a dear friend of many many years. Since it is a December birthday I decided to go with Susan's Garden Notes Poinsettia die and ECD Fitted Frames 1  Lacy Rectangles  die.  For those of you that follow Elizabeth Craft Designs or the Susan's Garden Club on Facebook the card will look familiar to you as Susan posted a similar one last week, what a coincidence.  I do apologize for the quality of the pictures as it is very hard to photograph Shimmer Sheetz and glitter, Here we go  Using Red Metallic Shimmer Sheetz cut 1 set of Fitted Frames 1- Lacy Rectangles.   Using 100 lb Soft Finish Cardstock with Double Sided Clear Adhesive  on both sides cut 1 set of Fitted Frames 1 - Lacy Rectangles.

Poinsettia Ornament

Hello Everyone, Just a quick post today.  This is another open front ornament and I used Susan's Garden Notes Poinsettia for the feature inside today.  Just like my "Snowman" ornament that posted last week on Elizabeth Craft Designs blog I coated the inside of the ornament with Kids Choice Glue then sprinkled diamond dust coating the inside and dumping out the extra diamond dust.  Place a small mound of Yes glue in the bottom center of ornament.   wrap  2" piece of wooden skewer with green floral tape (if you do not have the tape you could paint it green) insert into the center of the mound of glue.  Let dry completely.  Cut a poinsettia from cardstock shade and shape all leaves and then build the flower.

Frosty the Snowman Ornament

  Designed for ECD Susan Tierney-Cockburn Design Team. Hello everyone this is my December post for Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog   This idea came to me when I came across these clear open face balls which brought back a childhood memory of our Dad bringing home a box of 6 ornaments that were half balls with a scene in each one. Those became my favorite ornaments and today I have the only 2 remaining ornaments from that set. I knew Susan’s CountryScapes Build a Snowman die set would be perfect for this project. For the complete tutorial on how to make this ornament please visit Elizabeth Craft Designs blog here What a fun project  this was and I hope that you will try some of the ornaments.  I am looking forward to making more as there are many more Susan's Country1Scapes dies that can be used.
