The May Designers Challenge at Elizabeth Craft Designs is to create a standard-size “flat” card — one that does not use the fabulous accordion or pop-up dies Elizabeth Craft Designs is known for.
Frankly, I love to make flat cards because I mail them and I get tired of having to pay extra to mail thick cards.
Here’s the card I created ….
This one uses the the new Flower Cuties Peel-Off stickers, the Thank You die, Glitter Dots and Silk Microfine Glitter from Elizabeth Craft Designs; cardstock from American Crafts; vellum paper from Stampin’ Up and Copic markers.
I started by covering the Peel-Offs in Silk Microfine Glitter and then coloring them with Copic markers.
I created the card base and attached the vellum (I hid the adhesive behind the images.) I added a torn piece of cardstock for grass.
Then I cut out each piece and applied them to the card.
I took one of the extra ladybugs and used dimensional foam adhesive to attach it on top of the one the little girl is holding. The second one I placed on the inside of the card.
Then I added Glitter Dots to the antennae, floral ankles and flower pot. I think they add a cute touch.
Finally, I cut the sentiment out of cardstock with a die. I think she turned out pretty cute … what do you think?
