Fun with Dies class with Els of Elizabeth Craft Designs

I was able to take two classes with Els from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  In both classes (Fun with Dies and Stand Up Helpers)we made Holiday cards.

In the Fun with Dies class here are the cards we made:

Flower Merry Christmas Stand Up Helper

Candle Die 919 (for the pine branches)
Crystal Flower Set 1 924 (Flower)
Holly Leaves & Berries 926  (Holly Leaves)
Stand Up Helpers Set 2 930
True Red Silk Microfine Glitter 614
A Mix of Green 632, Forest Green 633 and Spring Peridot 635 Silk Microfine Glitter
Red Glitter Dots 7018
Gold Assorted Borders 1176
Gold Merry Christmas Peel-off Sticker

Double sided tape was attached to red and green card stock, then the images were cut.  The glitter was added to these elements.  Red Glitter dots were used for the center of the flower.

Ring Accordion


Ring Accordion 904
Chilly the Penguin 908
Snowflakes 757
Silver Silk Microfine Glitter 603
Silver Snowflakes Peel-off 2551
Silver Christmas Wishes Peel-off 376
Black (406), White (405), Blue (407), Yellow (401) Velvet Adhesive

I decided I did not like the accordion card, and when I got home I changed the card.  The Christmas Greetings sentiment is on the inside.  The circles were cut with Spellbinders dies, and acetate used to make the image appear to float in the card.

Katie Label Snowman

Katie Label Accordion  903
Katie Stars Frame Edges 913
White Velvet Adhesive 405
Snowman in Frame Peel-off Black 2583
Merry Christmas Large Peel-off Black 2576
Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter 642

Double stick tape was added to white card stock.  The adhesive exposed, and the Snowman sticker and Candy Cane were added.  The glitter was then added.  The images were colored with a variety of Copic markers.

I did not like the accordion card, and when I got home, I  modified it to a stand up style card.  I used the Stand Up helpers set 2 to cut the snowflake stand up helper.  Seasons Greetings peel-off sticker was added (not clearly visible in the picture).
