ECD bagde

Hey friends I am back today to share another first look at some of the new products available at Elizabeth Crafts Designs.  Today I am showing off a few cards featuring a couple of the new products from the Becky Seddon Collection.

Up first is a card featuring the new Free as a Bird die set.

To create this card I applied some 5×12 Clear Double Sided Adhesive to a piece of white cardstock.  I ran the prepared cardstock through my big shot using the new dies set, running it through the a couple extra times to get extra birds.

The Free as a Bird is such a beautiful die set, and really can be used year round in so many different ways.

My final card today features the new Take Time for You die set.  I create the clock, I pulled out two sheets of scrap cardstock and covered one with Black Soot Distress Oxide and the other with Tarnished Brass Distress Paint.  I then die cut out the pocket watch dies and assembled it using a brass brad to put the clock hands on.
