Now it's time to share some glorious card inspiration from our Design Team! We begin with this whimsical Steampunk Spells card by Susan Lui! This fun and easy card is just perfect for Halloween! Follow along with Susan's simple tutorial to create this spooktacular card for someone you love! Take it away, Susan!

Here’s a quick card I made using Graphic 45’s new Steampunk Spells collection. This collection is perfect for Halloween cards but I wanted to make one for a fun all-purpose greeting. So here it is, playing on the phrase ‘Time Flies when you’re having fun.”

Steampunk Spells Vintage Voyage, Tick-Tock, Beware


1. What you’ll need:

This card makes use of just 3 sheets of Steampunk Spells patterned papers – Vintage Voyage, Tick-Tock and Beware.

a)    Trim a 9 x 6.5 inch sheet from Beware

b)   Cut three clocks from Tick-Tock, one in each size; and the words ‘Time Flies’.

c)    Select a rectangular panel from Vintage Voyage


2. Fold the Beware patterned paper in half to form the base of your card. Attach the rectangular panel from Vintage Voyage on to the card base.


3. Stick on the words ‘Time Flies’ as shown and write ‘when you’re having fun’ below it.


4. Attach the clocks using dimensional dots as shown and you’re done.


Wasn't that fun?! Here we have another marvelous card that's perfect for any occasion! Behold this gorgeous Secret Garden card by Alberto Juarez! This sweet and simple card displays some amazing uses of the Secret Garden cardstock Flowers! This colorful creation would be the perfect way to brighten someone's day! Follow along with Alberto's fun and easy tutorial to recreate this splendid work of art!
