Hi everyone, I am so excited to announced that I am a Guest Designer for Scraptown Lady today. She sent me these awesome Graphic 45 papers, they are so rich in color and so scrumptious to play with! They are certain to bring out the French in you, non?
Click HERE to take you to my post.
My first project is a card set banded together with a little ribbon and a Prima sun flower.
A gorgeous gift set for any chateaux. I just love the golds, reds and china blues in this line. and voila, easy to make cards!
It's held together with a little velcro.
The cards were so easy to create using the A La Carte paper, just cut out the picture and matt the motif with a little black paper to punctuate their warm rich tones and you have a beautiful rustic-take-me-to-the-vineyard every day card.
I just couldn't stop at one project, the papers are so rich and colorful and meld so well together that it's all you can do to take your hands off of them! My second card set using the French Country Collection was created with a re-cycled box with an added bit of distress inking and sanding to truly give it that old world feeling. They say life is all in the details, and this olive green ribbon is just perfect with the French Country collection.
I took an old box ( yes, never throw out any boxes, become a box hoarder! ) and covered it with the beautiful double sided pattern papers. I loved all the Provencal prints on the papers like the Bon Apetit which provides you with easy way to block out your design.
A little velcro to create a closure.
6 stunning everyday cards to go inside! All so easy to make using the paper motif inserts.
When making a set, I like to have a repeating pattern so that they all match.
Here, I used one of the paneled motifs to create a pocket for stamps. C'est bon!
