eCraft~ Pink By Design Christmas!!!

I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!! Yuppers I sure do. And I LOVE my eCraft so pairing those two together for the holidays is going to be a total joy! I'm going to start Christmas early this year. Why you ask? Well because I never seem to be on time when it gets here so I'm giving myself advance notice! BE PREPARED lol.

This week I am so excited to share my projects with you all. I just love the ease and swiftness of this beautiful eCraft. I started making Christmas cards and realized it will be so quick this year to mass produce Christmas cards for family and friends. Yeah the eCraft is AMAZING!!! ;)
So with that said let me show you how I put this little cutie together so that you can reproduce something similar if you'd like.

Here it is...
What you will need for this project:
eCraft
Blue, Pink and white cardstock (I used Bashful Blue and Pretty in Pink from Stampin up as well as Wausau White Cardstock)
Vintage Stamps (I used Peace on Earth from Pink By Design)
eCraft Central Image (I used Frame 1)
Pattern Paper (I used Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses Paper Pad)
Ink (I used Cotton Candy and Peeled Paint Tim Holtz Distress ink, and Bashful Blue from Stampin' Up!)

The finished dimension of the card is 6.5 x 5
Cut your pretty in pink cardstock at 4 7/8" x 6 3/8". Layer on top of card.
Cut your pattern paper at 4 4/8" x 6". Layer on top of the pretty in pink cardstock.

Using your eCraft and White Cardstock place Frame 1 From eCraftcentral.com into eCraftShop Pro. Change the style to blackout This will remove anything drawn or framed in the inside. Cut frame at 4" x 4" . I had the tabs turned off and my pressure setting was at 4.5.

Next load Bahful Blue Stampin' Up! cardstock into your eCraft and repeat the previous steps. The only difference was that my pressure setting was set at 6 with the Stampin' Up! Paper because it is thicker. ;)

Using a paper trimmer cut around your Bashful blue frame leaving about a half an inch on each side.

Using your dye ink stamp three ornaments onto your white cardstock. Stamp another pink ornament onto a scrap piece of white and cut around it. Adhere your cut ornament to your main image using dimensionals.

Voila your are finished. This card didn't take long at all and it would be super simple to whip up in a flash. I hope you all enjoy it and that you are having a great day!
Card #2
What you will need for this project:
eCraft
Blue, Pink and white cardstock (I used Pretty in Pink from Stampin up as well as Wausau White Cardstock)
Vintage Stamps (I used Peace on Earth from Pink By Design)
eCraft Central Image (I used Mirror Frame 2)
Ink (I used Vintage Photo, Cotton Candy and Peeled Paint Tim Holtz Distress ink, and Bashful Blue from Stampin' Up!)

The finished dimension of the card is 6.5 x 5

Import the cut files into eCraft Shop pro and resize to 2" x 3" Repeat x3 or select copy on the upper left hand side and paste.
Next select the images and change the style to Shadow as opposed to normal. This will give you that layered affect.

Stamp your image onto the white cardstock using Cotton Candy and Peeled Paint Tim Holtz Distress ink, and Bashful Blue from Stampin' Up!

Next with a sponge applicator apply Vintage Photo ink to the edges

Adhere the blue and green stamped images to the right and left sides.

Using a dimensional adhere the pink stamped image in the center. I made it a little off center just because I like the messy look of it.

Finally stamp Deck the Halls onto the bottom center and voila another finished Christmas card.

Thanks again everyone for stopping by!!! Have a great day!
