Get Excited for Wedding Season with Graphic 45!
Are weddings coming up for you? They are for us, so what better way to get ready than with beautiful handmade ideas from our Design Team! Elena Olinevich and Aneta Matuszewska have two gorgeous ideas for cards and more to get ready for those upcoming special days!
"I love creating cards. When it comes to creating them, I have noticed recently, that I can not stop and narrow it to only one. So it seems that I’ve got used to create two or even 3 of them at once.
However I would like to share some tips how you can save your time and products, if you try to do it in a row.
- If you are using the die to cut out the shape , it’s a good chance to recycle the leftover and use it as a frame for your other card. The silhouette will frame it perfectly.
- Choose 3-4 patterned papers and mix the different ones for your background and for the embellishments. Try to combine different shapes. It will make them look different but matchable at teh same time.
- While doing fussy cutting, don’t skip the large elements if you are creating the cards. You can split one piece into several parts and use one for one card, the second for another one." ~Elena

"Description: Handmade romantic wedding album and card based on Gilded Lily and Precious Memories is a perfect gift for a newlyweds. Lot of embellishments and tags makes this piece a very elegant and delicate piece.
Tip 1: TO ADD AN EXTRA PAGE TO YOUR ALBUM USE A EPHERMA CARD AND GLUE IT TO YOUR BASE WITH A SMALL PIECE OF CARDSTOCK.
Tip 2: CUTTING YOUR TAGS IN 2 WILL GIVE YOU MORE OF PERFECT MATCHING EMBELLISHMENTS.
Tip 3: USE A POCKET AS A CONNECTION TO YOUR EXTRA PAGE." ~Aneta
