Portrait of a Lady Cards: Pam's Tri-Fold & Magda's Save the Date

Hello, G45ers!

We are doubling down on double features with two gorgeous Portrait of a Lady cards, created by the talented design team members, Pam Bray and Magda Cortez. Pam gets things going with a tremendous tri-fold card that unfolds into a beautiful landscape view and features a lovely assortment of Portrait of a Lady items, along with ribbons, lace, flowers, and gemstones. Magda follows up with a creative and non-traditional take on a Save the Date or Party Favor. This elegant cone features so many lovely details and will certainly make a great keepsake in honor of a special day. These projects are just the picture of perfection, so read on for more.

A Portrait of a Lady Tri Fold Card

by Pam Bray

“Spring is the perfect time of the year to create special and unique cards or projects for the ladies in our lives…grandmas, moms, sisters, friends, etc. Graphic 45's Portrait of a Lady is the perfect collection, bright, elegant, and so charming! I created a tri-fold card by adhering two square card bases together to create a unique and interesting card to give to a special friend. I hope it will remind her how beautiful she is!” ~Pam Bray

Tips:

  1. Adhering card bases together makes quick and easy dimensional cards plus it gives you extra space to create on.
  2. Add hidden tags inside of pocket journal pieces for an interactive card.
  3. Vintage lace will create dimension to your projects.
