Our designer’s also found the images and patterns extremely easy to use for any occasion. While some felt inspired to create special occasion cards like anniversary cards other found it just as simple to create an everyday card like a simple thank you. I think this shows just how versatile these lines truly are.
Thank You Card by Celeste Smith
Supplies: Paper: Graphic 45, Making Memories, Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper, Stickers: SRM Stickers. Tools: Punch: EK Success.
Design Notes: I used a punch to create a spot to put my sentiment on the card, then I gave it a little dimension with pop dots. The flower paper from Graphic 45 really makes this thank you card cheery, bright and lovely.
Happy Anniversary by Janice Badger
Supplies: Paper, Border Strip: Graphic 45, Kraft paper: Stampin' up!, Ink: Fluid Chalk (Clearsnap), Vivid (Clearsnap), Pen: American Crafts, Adhesive: Scotch, Other: thread. Tools: Die Cut Machine: Cuttlebug (Provo Craft), sewing machine, Stamp: Papertrey Ink, Dies: Spellbinders, Papertrey Ink.
Design Notes: Although this line was very masculine, one of the pre-printed tags had a man and a woman under a tree, getting ready to play golf, with their caddy nearby. After cutting with a die, I used a black pen to color in the caddy's face so it wouldn't be distracting. It was a great image for an anniversary card.
Hi Card by Michelle McClung
Supplies: Paper, Alphabet: Graphic 45, Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper, Ribbon: 7Gypsies, Flower: Michael's. Tools: Die Cut Machine: Cuttlebug (Provocraft), Dies: Spellbinders.
Design Notes: I made my card based on Graphic 45's Sunflower cut out ad. I loved the colors, and the sunflower, so that became the theme for my card. I used my Cuttlebug to make the cardstock base and then the cardstock and patterned paper mats.
