My card for the Elizabeth Craft Designs May Designers Challenge!


It's time for the Elizabeth Crafts Designer Challenge this months theme is to make an A2 card!
 My cards are usually Pop It Ups so this was a fun challenge for me!   I'm LOVING the New Peel-Offs by Elizabeth Craft Designs and decided to use the butterfly that fits on the Fancy Label Accordion Card but also looks great on an A2 card!

Here is my card:

1. Cut a Piece of  Audery Blue Simon Says Stamp cardstock for the top fold A2 card 4.25 x 11 and score in the middle.

2. Cut a piece of ECD double sided adhesive about 3.5 by 3.5 and a piece of cardstock the same size large enough for the Butterfly Peel Off. Take one side of the backing off and place the adhesive piece onto the card stock.

3. Peel the top layer from the adhesive off and  Peel up the Peel Off and place it sticky side up onto the backing you just removed from the adhesive sheet.  Then put the adhesive piece onto the backing with the peel off sticky side up.

4. Now you have the peel off on the sticky piece of adhesive, be careful not to touch the adhesive and cover it with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter .  Shake off the excess and rub the glitter into the piece with your fingers. Tap off excess again.

5. Cut a piece of White Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 and emboss it with the Spring Leaves embossing folder.  Lightly sand the raised area on the piece with a sanding block.  Color leaves with a copic or alcohol marker. I used Peel-Off Glitter Borders and put around the edge of the piece to make it look finished.
6. I cut a label from white card stock using a decorator die from the Lucy Label Pop it up set and Stamped the Thinking of you with Gold Delacata Ink.I  cut two little slits in the label using dies from the same set (Lucy Label Pop It Up)  for my ribbon to go through.

7. Finishing the card is easy just adhere the peel off to the embossed piece and place it on the card towards the top.
Run your ribbon through the label piece and tie it around the card.

You can see all the cards by the Design Team on Saturday the 31st at  8:00 Am  on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog. I know there will be some Amazing cards.....

Coloring on the Glittered Peel-Offs is so easy and fun!  Elizabeth Craft Designs has so many to choose from and I Love that you can color, watercolor, or glitter them!
