Let’s get wild and have some fun creating handmade cards! Today on the blog Anna Sigga has taken on our #G45LeveledUp challenge. This is where we ask our Graphic 45 Brand Ambassadors to take one of our project sheets/kit video tutorials follow along using a different paper collection and add a few fun techniques, taking the project to the next level! We hope this opens the possibilities of reusing tutorials to suit your needs or make do with your supplies on hand. So grab some decorative papers and join us for Anna’s Wild & Free Trifold Card Set and video tutorial.
Wild & Free Trifold Cards
By Anna Sigga
“Hello fellow crafters.
I love the G45 Card Kit clubs, and I wanted to create tri-fold cards similar to those in the G45 Card Kit Vol 1 2022. The focus is on the Time To Flourish collection in that kit, and I wanted to focus on the Wild & Free collection.
I followed the instructions from the video tutorial and created my version of the kit using another beautiful collection.
I used cream cardstock for the card base, and here are the measurements:
Cut – 11 x 5 ½ inches
Score at 2 ¾ and 5 ½ inches
Fold the smaller flaps so that they form a Z.
Then I cut the patterned paper in the following measurements:
5 ¼ x 5 ¼ inches (1 piece)
5 ¼ x 2 ½ inches ( 4 pieces)
I inked the edges of my patterned papers with a coordinating colour and adhered them to the card base.
I wanted to use the beautiful images in the ephemera pack, and I decided to use a mixture of images to create a unique one. And, of course, I inked every single image.
Then I added a touch of shine using the beautiful Matte Pearls n silver – I just love that touch of sparkliness to any project.
Thank you so much for stopping by, and make sure to tag your Graphic 45 creations so we can find them on social media.” ~Anna

I love this format and I love how you used this paper! I have many packs of beautiful G45 paper that I stare at and am loath to cut but I can definitely see myself doing lots of these. Thanks for the idea and tutorial! Love how G45 shares how to’s with their fans. 😀
