Cards, Ribbons, and More from Graphic 45


Today, we are sharing gorgeous card ideas! Gloria Stengel and Ginny Nemchak have some incredible ideas for you today. Gloria even shows you how to custom dye seam binding! Absolutely amazing. Let's get into the fun!

First, Gloria has this stunning Time to Flourish share! Check out her great tutorial below.

"Time to Flourish paper is so beautiful that you cannot help but make pretty cards with it! Adding hand-dyed seam binding makes these papers pop! Custom-dyed seam binding may seem like a difficult thing to achieve, but it is really very simple! You need 5/8" RAYON seam binding and some inks! See the included Snapguide tutorial to create your own pretty ribbons!"  ~Gloria
