Go Crazy with Cardmaking from Graphic 45!


Good morning,

Which of our G45ers are cardmakers? We know many of you are! Well, we have a day full of great ideas here on the blog! We have a set of "10 Supply Cards" from Denise Hahn with a tutorial. Then, we will share Miranda Edney's beautiful Couture Spool card.

Don't forget! You have until tomorrow to comment here or on Facebook to win this great Couture prize pack! So many goodies, so many projects waiting to be made - maybe even projects inspired by today's blog. Hooray!


Denise Hahn shares a fantastic idea below - a set of "10 supply cards." All you need is 10 supplies and you have a card for any occasion! This genius idea even has a Snapguide tutorial. How brilliant!

"One thing I can say is that I am extremely fortunate to design for Graphic 45. I have a basically endless supply of materials to create with and have totally gotten over that 'fear' of cutting into my favorite paper without analyzing the back first! But not everyone has that endless supply and 'covets' their favorite Graphic 45. So for this project I created a simple and easy 10 Supply card. And by 10 supplies, that includes everything! What I really loved about this project when I was done, it is would be a great craft to do at a shower or birthday party or take to a crop when you don’t want to drag your entire craft room. " - Denise Hahn

This is all you need and the supplies are interchangeable.

For my Couture Card I used fabric, lace trim, and a stamp for the supplies.

For Typography I kept it masculine and very clean using washi, stickers and a vintage ticket for the embellishment.

This card I had some fun on mixing multiple Graphic 45 collections using washi, stickers,and a Petaloo flower.

Miranda's style is so gorgeous and distinct, and this Couture spool card is another beautiful example of that!

"Couture brings out the prettier side of me, and makes me want to create clothes! Even makes me think I can sew some together lol! I wanted to do a nontraditional card! So I just traced out a sketch of a sewing spool and used that as my template. Very easy to do, and besides some lace for the spool , I used all Graphic 45 on this card! I always find I use such minimal other embellies when working with my G45! They provide you with everything you need!" -Miranda

I just can't get enough Graphic 45!

I have to agree with the statement that embellishments can be kept to a minimum when using G45 products. They are artwork all on their own. The spool card is wonderful.

Love cards, I do make quite a few, and it's nice to get new ideas. Thanks for sharing.
