Elizabeth Craft Designs' Shimmer Sheetz

Hello my friends,

I had an amazing time at the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo here in Atlanta Ga. Made lots of friends and consumed so many wonderful tips and techniques.

This months Challenge over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs' Challenge blog is to create a card using one of out "Friday Technique with Els"  your tube tutorials. I have chosen an older video that I watched that really inspired me to take a clean and simple card design and add a couple extra touched that really amped up the card. Watch this video for even more details:


For participating in this months challenge Elizabeth Craft Designs will be giving away a $20 Gift Card to use on our website to 3 winners.

To enter simply leave a comment on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Challenge post and tell us " "What your favorite technique learned from the Technique Friday With Els series". ”

We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing

The winners will be announced on Friday, July 21 on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.
Here is my take on a card using the sanding technique that Els shares in the above you tube video. This was super simple to do and I just love how a tiny bit of the peel off stickers really jazzed it up!


To recreate this card simply run a piece of Shimmer Sheetz through your die cut machine inside a embossing folder. Then taking a sanding block, simply sand the top of the Shimmer Sheetz until you desired look is achieved. This can be done on either side (Embossed or De bossed sides)



Next cut a red card base and a white mat and attach all together. Half a doily was used with a horizontal stripe of card stock. Added to the stripe is a simple glitter line sticker. Did you know Elizabeth Craft Designs carried a large array of stickers? These stickers really can add that little extra touch which makes your card sparkle!

Lastly, I used the Labels and Circle die set which has been reduced to $4.95!!!! Grab it while it is available! The sentiment was used from the Dreams Sentiment Set.


Here is a close up to show you the added texture using the Shimmer Sheetz along with the Peel Off Stickers. Very simple to add a little something extra special to your cards.

I hope you have enjoyed todays challenge. Make sure to head on over to the ECD Challenge blog for your chance to WIN!
