Superb Card Ideas For Any Occasion With New G45 Collections

CHA 2013 French Country Card 2 Clare Charvill

Hello G45ers, 

Happy Tuesday and welcome to another super day here at the Graphic 45 blog! We are having so much fun getting to share these incredible new crafts from our design team that feature our latest collections! Today we are celebrating the wonderful art of cards! We've got three fantastic cards to share with you. There's a Secret Garden card by Tara Orr, a French Country card by Clare Charvill and a Little Darlings card and video tutorial by Maiko Miwa! Cards are such a joy to create and today you will see a wonderful variety of styles and techniques. Get inspired to create some amazing handmade cards of your own with Graphic 45! We also have some more photo highlights to share with you from our adventures at CHA! This is going to be such a great day! So lets begin with some fun photos from CHA!

Here is Jeff and Dustin getting crafty for our Make N' Takes yesterday!


Here are the Place in Time altered items from the CHA booth! So pretty!


Here is another peek into our Place in Time part of our booth! So much inspiration!


We have a photo booth at CHA! Our photo booth was fun for everyone but this cute little guy! He doesn't love hats as much as the Graphic 45 staff!


And now it's time for some crafts! First up is this breathtaking Secret Garden card by Tara Orr. This card combines some beautiful paper layering, paper distressing and fussy cutting techniques that give it a dazzlingly unique look. Tara also used the Graphic 45 Ornate Metal Key Hole Staples to add even more elegance to this card. What a fun and joyful creation that's perfect for any occasion! 




Next up is another magnificent all-occasions card. This one was created by Clare Charvill and it features our new collection French Country. There are so many superb designs and richly saturated colors in French Country. There are so many options for creating one-of-a-kind crafts. You can see how Clare inked and layered French Country papers while adding a little bit of sparkle to the sunflowers. How delightful! A card like this is sure to brighten the day of a friend or loved one! Here is what Clare had to say about it.

"When I saw this collection for the first time it was the sun flowers that jumped out at me.  Their gorgeous faces remind me of my sister who through the most terrible illness has somehow still managed to keep smiling and bright just like the sunflowers, so I made this card with her in mind." -Clare Charvill
