Princess Keepsake Card

By Joanne Bain


“Hi G45ers!! Joanne here with you today to share a keepsake card I created using the gorgeous Princess Collection and some G45 Staples.


Last month I created a baby shower invitation with this collection so I thought why not continue on with the theme and create a baby girl keepsake card of it could also be used just as a fancy birthday card for a special little girl.



The front of the card was created with lots of fussy cut images from the paper which were layered to give lots of dimension. The base of the card was created using G45 tag staples which I have a how-to tutorial for you below.

As you can see there are lots of layers.



To the top of the front and inside front of the card I added G45 Door Pulls, I think they added that little extra bit of bling to make the card a bit more special.


G45 Tip: Add G45 Door Pulls to the top of larger tags to give them that extra bit of bling!


The inside of the card features on the left side a small ATC envelope covered with Princess papers. The top was cut off of the envelope to allow for a gift card to be placed inside.



While on the right side of the card it features a smaller tag that can be pulled out and gives a place to write your sweet message. Because it has a front and back it allows space for maybe a photo.
