Surprise and delight your friends and family with Spooky Halloween Cards this year! Today on the blog Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador, Anna Sigga teaches us how to create fun interactive cards using our Charmed paper collection and Tags. This tutorial is a part of our #G45LeveledUp series, where we ask our Brand Ambassadors to take one of printable project sheets and add their own twist.
Spooky Cute Cards
By Anna Sigga
“The Graphic 45 card kits are a great source of inspiration, and I was inspired by the use of the G45 tags and card bases in the Card Kit Volume 7 2022.
I used the adorable Charmed collection to create my version of these fun cards.
-Step by Step Tutorial-
I used the cream card bases from Graphic 45 as my base and the regular ivory tags.
I scored the tags from ½ “ from the bottom and placed a strong double-sided adhesive on the inside of the flap. I put the tag centred-ish on the front and adhered it in place. Now I have a flap on the front of my card base.
I cut one of the patterned papers down to 4 & 5 ¼ “ and adhered it to the front of the card base (and behind the attached tag).
I die-cut the patterned paper I wanted on the front to the tag using the regular tags die and cut the die-cut piece so that it measured about 5” length-wise.
For an even more vintage look, I inked the edges of every piece of paper using the Graphic 45 Classic Black ink pad.
To keep the tags folded (or closed), I adhered a ribbon to the back of the card using double-sided adhesive. I cut the ribbon to 11-10”, which was more than I needed. I then pull the ribbon through the grommet once and again to create a closure. You could, of course, also tie a ribbon if you prefer.
I hope you like my version of this card kit, and hopefully, you can find your twist in any of the fabulous kits Graphic 45 has on the website.
Happy crafting!” ~Anna
