We have gorgeous card ideas on the blog today! We love cards and we know our G45ers do as well. Arlene Cuevas shares a stunning Gilded Lily card and then Lori wows with a great card using Sizzix dies. It's a cardmaking party!
"The soft color palette and vintage imagery of the Gilded Lily collection is breathtaking! I had so much fun cutting into these papers to create this special card. I hope you like it!
Tip: Use a corner punch on your card to add a different touch to a standard card. Multiple layers on the card make it even more fun!" ~Arlene

“This card encompasses everything I love, stand up/fancy fold cards, handmade flowers and then some fussy cutting from detailed Graphic 45 paper. All those things go together to create such a 'WOW' factor. I love it. I really love to have lots of layers on my projects and one easy way to do that is with foam tape. I go through the stuff like crazy. You can get varying heights on your projects but stacking the foam tape at multiple levels. It’s just a simple way to give interest to your project and your clustered areas ." ~Lori
