ECD April Coloring Designer Challenge


Hi everyone,

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

Our challenge this month is .... Inside and Out - We often decorate the front of our card and do nothing on the inside of the card. For our challenge this month let's decorate the inside of our card to coordinate in some way with the front of the card.

For my card today I decided to make a card to congratulate someone on their new home using the Krista Schneider Row Houses and coordinating dies.

Here is how I created my card:

Step 1 -
Create a square base card using the Buttercream Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 5 5/8 inches square when folded.
  • Using designer paper of your choice to die cut a square using the largest square from the Fitted Squares die set.
  • Using the Brick Red Soft Finish Cardstock, die cut a square using the largest square from the Stitched Square die set.
  • Layer the two together and adhere to the front of the folded card.
Step 2 -
Die cut the third largest fishtail from the Stitched Fishtail die set from Soft Sky Soft Finish Cardstock. 
  • Sponge clouds to the top portion of the fishtail using the Behind the Scenes - Clouds & Grass Stencil and Picket Fence Distress Paint.
  • Die Cut the bottom half of the same fishtail from the green designer paper.  Then use the Pop It Ups Outdoor Edges to create an curved edge along the top of this layer. Adhere paper to the bottom of the fishtail.
  • Die cut the second largest fishtail from Brick Red Soft Finish Cardstock and layer this behind the stitched fishtail.
  • Die cut two designer paper fishtails and one Buttercream fishtail using the second smallest fishtail from the Stitched Fishtails die set. Adhere to bottom of the larger fishtail referring to photo above as a guide.
  • Using the Krista Schneider Row Houses Clear Stamps stamp the smaller house, both sets of trees, bush and chairs/table to White Soft  Finish Cardstock using black ink. Die cut using coordinating dies. Color and adhere to the fishtail banner using foam tape.
  • Using the Pop It Ups Baby Clear Stamp set, stamp the "Congrats on your new" sentiment to top right hand side of fishtail banner using black ink.
  • Adhere the large fishtail banner to front of card using foam tape.

Step 3 - Inside of Card:
Using designer paper, die cut a square using the largest square from the Fitted Squares die set.

  • Using the Brick Red Soft Finish Cardstock, die cut a square using the largest square from the Stitched Square die set.
  • Layer the two together and adhere to the inside of the card.
Step 4 -
Using the Stitched Fishtail Banners die set, die cut the second smallest fishtail banner from White Soft Finish Cardstock
  • Die cut the middle sized Stitched Fishtail Banners from Brick Red Soft Finish Cardstock. Layer the two together.
  • Trim the end of the banner so it measures approximately 3 5/8 inches and adhere to the lower right hand side of the card.
Step 5 -
Using the Alphabet 2 - Lower Case die set, die cut the letters "H" "O" "M" "E" using Rich Black Soft Finish Cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the back.
  • Adhere the letters to the fishtail end of the panel to form the word "Home"
Step 6 -
