A Ladies Diary from Graphic 45

I was browsing through my basket holding a stack of paper packs and found this Graphic 45 A Ladies Diary Collection and decided I needed to bring it to my desk and play a bit.  This is another instance of my hoarding so I actually cut into it and made a simple card for a friend.

It is a fancy fold card and I just covered it with these glorious papers and did some fussy cutting from the paper then added some sweet flowers out of my bin and a little seam binding bow.  I also did a belly band but left it scooted down to show you the most of the front as I could.  In real life it would be scooted up to just below the sweet little bow.

Folded out, the card reveals a sentiment piece with another fussy cut piece from the papers.  I layered the lady with an old Spellbinders tag stamped with my sentiment and it is ready to go.

How's that for easy peasy?  No handmade flowers or ribbon or lace just cardstock and pretty papers.  Looking back at my photographs this morning, I remember why I didn't want to use this's lovely!

Sweet, Love Graphic 45 papers, but I too hoard. Thanks for the inspiration to get busy and delight myself!~ Would be a great card to mail also as it is flat. I'd love to go back to the day of wearing hats ! Have a great week.

What a fun card, Glenda, no use hoarding the paper as it is too pretty to not use! Happy Monday!

Fabulous papers! I love the fold and the whole idea of the belly band to hold it closed. Such great use of these papers, and good for you to bring them out of hoarding status!
