Good Tuesday morning! Sometimes it’s fun to make a no stamp card, or some would call them scrappy cards. Just playing with pretty paper. And when it comes to pretty paper for scrappy projects, no one can outdo Graphic 45. Their pads are AMAZING! Take a look at Esther’s card:

Isn’t this lovely for a quick card – who would know!

This card is made with the Fruit & Flora paper collection by Graphic 45.

The sentiment panel is cut from the paper pad. There are so many opportunities in the Graphic 45 pads to cut out sentiments, images and borders for your projects. Don’t be afraid to cut – USE that gorgeous paper!

Esther used the lovely Crochet Die by Tim Holtz for the lacy borders.

I am so {{{loving}}} this die!!!

And a seam binding bow finishes it off beautifully!

Truly, a no hassle card using limited supplies that will WOW! the recipient!
