Hello Crafty Friends,

Today is the last day of November and that means it is our Designers’ Challenge at Elizabeth Craft Designs. Our design team was asked to create projects using the wonderful Elizabeth Craft Designs projects that are other than a card.

As Christmas is approaching, I thought that a double-purpose tag would be fun to create. This is a gift tag that can be used as a tree ornament as well.

Let it snow!

Hello crafty friends,

For as long as I can remember my sister has been supporting nonprofit organizations. This year she asked if I would create two cards for her Secret Santa outreach. Knowing about the person who will receive them is always a great way to start card projects. When I found out that my cards would go to children who are blind the challenge became a bit different: To create cards that can be experienced with the sense of touch. I started with my favorite colors, but made the final selections with my eyes closed, picking papers that felt soft, smooth, and interesting to my fingers (Velvet Adhesive Sheets in the mix, of course!). The spiral and all the snowflakes make this a perfect card for anyone who is vision impaired, as well as everyone who can see it.

As always, I hope you have a nice cup of coffee or tea in your hand so you can sit back and enjoy my tutorial.
