Gorgeous Graphic 45 Cards


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!

First, Arlene shares this beautiful Gilded Lily card. It's so much fun to see you all starting to create with these new collections! Amazing work!

"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

Next, we adore how this card unfolds and stands by Lori. What a great use of An ABC Primer and Sizzix dies!

“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
