Hi Everyone,

Welcome back to another Elizabeth Craft Designs Die Cut/Coloring Team Challenge. Starting this month the Die Cut & Coloring Team Challenge are combined. This month the team was challenged to do a technique from Technique Friday with Els. My card was inspired by the Sparkly Flower Lace Cards Technique. This is a super easy technique but with stunning results.

Club Scrap Vintage Botany Kit and Fusion Card Challenge

Hi Everyone,
Today I am showing you a card I made using the new Vintage Botany Hybrid Kit from Club Scrap and a sketch from the Fusion Card Challenge.

Here is the challenge (4th of July Jars). I chose the sketch.
Finished measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded.

All designs were printed on white cardstock and then assembled as a paper kit. I used the Stitched Rectangles and Dotted Scallop Rectangles die to create a window. I diecut the flowers from the cut-a-parts (3 circles). I love how they turned out. For close up see photo below. I diecut the sentiment with the Fishtail Banners Die. (All dies are from Elizabeth Craft Designs). If you are interested in the Vintage Botany Hybrid kit go here. If you want the Vintage Botany paper kit go here.
