Making a special guest appearance, here is an Olde Curiosity Shoppe card created by Graphic 45 blog writer Kelly Woessner. This card was created by layering Olde Curiosity Shoppe and Kraft Reflections to combine rich symmetry and color. The card base is a piece of recycled cardboard which is both durable and Earth-friendly! The Graphic 45 Metal Button Staples also make a nice 3-D focal point for this fun card. With all of the fabulous patterns and colors of Graphic 45 papers you can have a lot of fun mixing and matching!
