Birthday Card Celebration

Hello, G45ers!

  Join us for the celebration of Diane Schultz, CEO and Head Designer for Graphic 45’s Birthday!  Today on the blog we are thrilled to share a set of gorgeous Bird Watcher Cards by Lena Astafeva.  These cards would be perfect for a birthday, thinking of you or just a note to say hello.  Lena created these cards as a part of our #ClubG45LeveledUp series.



Happy birthday to our fearless leader, head designer, CEO, and mother of Graphic 45!  We are so thankful for Diane’s passion for all things vintage, her eye for style and design, and her willingness to take a risk in business by daring to be different.  Please join us in wishing Diane a happy, happy birthday!


The Story of Graphic 45 told in Q&A Style with the Founders, Diane Schultz & Aimee Filimoehala



Bird Watcher Gatefold Cards


By Lena Astafeva


“I was inspired by cards by Ginger Ropp. I used G45 Card & Env 4.25×5.5-Ivory

Also all of the card bases are created the same. Open up the card base and use your bone folder to flatten out the crease. Place this in your scoreboard with the 8½” across the top and score at 21⁄8” on both ends. Fold along the score-lines creating the gatefold front.
