Let’s take a look at the card I made for today.

Then a bit further down we’ll check out the give-away at this stop.

True confessions – I don’t have a lot of time to stamp.

So, with that in mind, I simply LOVE to pull out a beautiful pad of paper and let it do the magic for me!

In this case I used the Elegance pad by Graphic 45.

I selected which portion of my favorite sheet I wanted to make the focal point of my card, then cut it with the Hemstitch Rectangle die.

I added a few mat layers and a 1/4″ Silk bow, made on the original Bow Easy.

The tiny flowers are Kaisercraft Mini Paper Blooms in Fairy Floss.

The Happy Birthday sentiment is from our All Occasion Sentiments SET 1.

This card is a bit larger at 5 x 7″.

It fits into the 5 x 7″ Clear Box (A7) for protection and a wonderful presentation.


I hope my card inspired you, because the give-away on this blog is:

Both Sets 1 and 2 of our All Occasion Sentiments

PLUS the Elegance 8×8 pad by Graphic 45


PLUS 5 yards of May Arts 1/4″ Silk Ribbon in Pink

PLUS 1 package of Kaisercraft Mini Paper Blooms in Fairy Floss

And all you have to do to be in the running to WIN, is comment below!

    What a beautiful card. I tend to hoard my Graphic 45 paper instead of letting it do the work in creating a card as you have. I seldom use ribbon because I’m bow-challenged but your bow is so pretty with the sweet little flowers.

    Such a stunning, gorgeous card! I have always loved Graphic 45 paper and this pad promises to be one that I could really use because it is heavy on the floral and it is so feminine.
