"I love step cards, I just think they look so pretty standing up the way they do!  This one is pretty simple, I just used a cut-apart from Midnight Masquerade in the center and then added some strips from design paper.  Inside the card, I added a journaling cut-apart and again, used strips from design paper on either side of the cut-apart." ~Maggi

Tip:  Sometimes, simple is good and it can be a bold statement.  Don't be afraid to use a simple image as the focal point embellished with a flower or trim.  I am guilty of over thinking my projects, and I have a tendency to keep piling on the "stuff", then I say to myself, "Maggi, simple is good, leave it alone!"

Elena shares the beauty of Spring with these gorgeous Secret Garden cards!

Spring Cards  Secret Garden  by Elena Olinevich  product by Graphic45  photo7

"The most longing time for me is an awaiting for the Spring Season. After a long winter time, with no sun, dull and frosty weather I feel such a hunger for the warmth and the sunshine.

That’s why each late January - early February I start creating tons of Spring and Floral cards. I guess it helps me to feel it more close to me.

This time I created 3 cards from the same collection - Secret Garden. It is really so so beautiful, that it makes your creating process smooth and pleasant.

It has so many flowers that you don’t really need to add any embellishments at all.

I enjoy fussy cutting therapy each and every time I take Graphic45 papers.


What I would suggest is to try absolutely different color combinations even if you are making a set of cards. It will help you to try different paper variations. and what is more important is to - enjoy the process and to feel the sunshine coming from the papers." ~Elena
