Seasons Spring Center Step

     Here is a spring mantle card made with Graphic 45's Seasons Collection. The base of this card is a center step with kraft card stock.

Front of Card
     The card features a handmade window embossed with a wood grain folder. The window pane is die cut from a Stampin Up die on an antique gold paper. It is pop dotted to the card using double thick dots.

Trellis Window

     The card is embellished with die cut flowers, organza ribbon, champagne pearls, and Graphic 45 ephemara as well. The butterflies were fussy cut from the patterned paper.

Inside of Card

I will be making 16 cards and 4 calendars with this Graphic 45 Seasons Paper. All of these SPRING cards can be made using:
  • one sheet of each of the spring patterned paper 
  • one sheet of each of green stripe and green floral from Prints and Solids
In order to make All Seasons cards and calendars, you only need purchase the following items once:
