April Elizabeth Craft Designs Challenge Elegant and White!


It's time for the Elizabeth Craft Designs Challenge this month and the team is showing Elegant and White Designs. I always love the look of White on White but don't do it very often for some reason!
I decided to do a Pop It Up designed by Karen Burniston with a little Gold using some of the Great Flower Dies by Elizabeth Craft Designs!

Here is the Front:

I cut a piece of White Cardstock to 11 x 4.25 and scored in in the center at 5.5.
I then ran the front part through my big shot embossing it with the damask embossing folder by Elizabeth Craft Designs.
I cut an Stitched Oval using one of the Dies included in the Oval AC Card set by Karen Burniston for ECD.  The Sentiment by Fresh Squeezed Stamps was stamped using Delicata Gold before adhering my oval to the card front using foam tape to pop it up slightly.
The Flowers and leaves were cut from White card stock using the Smallest Flower from the Big Flower set 795 and a little daisy like flower from the Flower set 2 702.  I also cut some leaves using the Big Triple Leaf 796 and the smaller leaves from the curvy Leaves set 730.
I cut the centers from card stock that I had adhered Cool diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to before cutting out using the smallest center from the Big Flowers Set.
Then added a Clear Smooth Gem to the Center of each flower after arranging them on my card with foam tape.

Here is the Inside:

 And a Close Up!

I cut another I  piece of white card stock the same size as my card front and scored it in the center.
I then laid the Lots of Pops die in the center and ran it through my big shot creating my Platform.
I stamped my Sentiment at the bottom using a stamp by Stampabilities using the Delacata Gold Ink.
At this point I adhered my Front to the Platform using a strong adhesive as these get a lot of Play :)
I Love the Poles included in the Lots Of Pops set, I cut them six times 4 in white card stock and two in gold as I like my poles to be really sturdy.  I adhere two whites together and the gold pole on top before attaching them to the pop out platforms using double sided adhesive.
I cut a Bunch of Flowers and leaves from the sets mentioned above out of white card stock. I also cut a Butterfly from the 713 Small Butterfly by ECD in white.
Putting it together was easy I started with the flowers connecting the poles gluing one to the pole on the right and then another and adding the Butterfly them another flower to make an Arch.
Then I placed a flower with leaves on each platform behind the arch and in front completing my arrangement.
The center of the flowers and the butterfly center were created by putting the ECD double sided adhesive onto white card stock and then burnishing with the Silk Microfine Glitter before cutting them out.  I also added a smooth clear gem to the center of each flower.
After I was finished I decided to round the corners with my corner chomper giving it a little more finished look.

I hope you like this card, although there are lots of steps it is really worth it in the end!
All the Links for my supplies are found below other than the Stampabilities  stamp which I grabbed from Hobby Lobby!  The Fresh Squeezed Sentiment is no longer available as they are out of business.
Have a Great Day and Go HERE  on April 30th to see all the Beautiful Creations by my Teammates :)
