A Great Wednesday for Graphic 45 Cards!


We love cards here at Graphic 45. We love going through old boxes and reading sweet, thoughtful cards that our friends and family have written us. Today, we give you some great handmade ideas from Gloria Stengel and Arlene Cuevas. Enjoy their beautiful cards!

First, Gloria, a brilliant cardmaker, shares her A Ladies' Diary card. This collection will be in stores soon as a Deluxe Collector's Edition. So fun!

"A Ladies' Diary is another Deluxe Collection, re-released by Graphic 45. I created many projects and taught a few classes using this collection when it was originally released. It is a lovely set of papers, perfect for wedding, bridal shower, anniversary, and even Valentine's Day projects. I created a 6" x 6" card, with lots of layers and flowers. I love how feminine and dainty this collection is! It also goes to show that Graphic 45 papers are TIMELESS!" ~Gloria
