Graphic 45's Mon Amour collection is in the stores now!

This is the collection for all of us romantics out there!  I particularly love this collection because it really invokes a feeling of romanticism without being all pink and soft.  I am a big fan of bright and bold color rather than soft and subtle.  This collection has the most beautiful pinks and creams brought to life with blacks and greens.  Mmmm I seriously love this!

I'm up on the Graphic 45 blog today sharing this card I made for my sweetheart on the occasion of our 23rd wedding anniversary.  It's really a simple card to make.  First, I cut a card for the base, 6” wide and 5” tall.  Then I used Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Borders to cut the layered borders.  Each border cut is around an 1” and they layer so nicely over each other.  I love dies and use them all the time.  I have a Cameo but find myself reaching for my dies most of the time.   After cutting 3 border pieces to layer, I cut the final piece which is 4” from the center point to the top of the card and layered on top of the other scalloped border pieces.  Then I diecut another little frame piece from ivory cardstock, topped that with a cut apart that I popped up with foam tape, added some pretty flowers and some diecut leaves and that’s it, all done.  ½ hour tops and you have a simple, but elegant card.  That’s 20 minutes to decide on the papers to use and 10 minutes for the actual assembly!  J

If you like to make cards and tags, you might want to invest in a few basic dies.  Diecuts give your projects such a nice finished look and you can use the dies over and over again.
