G45 Couture

This sheet of G45 paper is just perfect for card makers. You get to choose which 6 blocks you want to use from the 12 options – a double sided sheet (not two sheets). So many designs to create some interesting cards.

Femme Fatale Card Toppers – Card Ideas

Elegance!

Elegance!

I really do love these gorgeous card toppers. Just stunning and there are twelve toppers per pack so that is pretty amazing.

So…….I have been playing! The one above is a typical gate fold card and the topper goes really well with the Pavlova paper. I will list all the products I used at the bottom of the post. The gorgeous die I used behind gives the photo a real whispy look.

Short Front Card

Short Front Card

Not really sure if there is a correct name for this shaped card and so I have created my own. Short front card!! I trim a section off the right hand side of the card and the topper sits out over the edge. Gives a swing effect. Depending on what you want to have on the inside of the card that shows in the space, determines how much you cut off.

 

Centre Step Card

Centre Step Card

Love making Centre Step cards. So quick, so easy and very effective. Dress it up or use papers that speak for themselves.

Square Card

A very simple card to make – pre embossed square card, some ribbon and lace and a gorgeous topper.

Very easy card to make! I have used the same paper as in the card above. My first time making this style card and it was “such fun”!! The photo doesn’t really show how this works and so I have added another couple. I will also try and upload a video once I have completed one as this is such a cool and quick card to make. Video now on You Tube

This card will fit in a standard size envelope.

The measurements for this card are 12 inches x 5 half  inches

On the long side – score at 2,4,8,10 inches

On the short side – mark at 2 and three quarter inches and cut from this mark back up to the second score line on each side – ie the 4 inch and the 8 inch

Use the piece that you take from the top – reverse the piece and add to the bottom corners on the inside of the card. Not only does this add that extra dimension it also strengethen the card for standing.

Check out this video to see how: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/509610514056807975/  – Thanks to Donna for this demo!

I added a sentiment to this card which is listed above and then I had to laugh………………….she is looking at herself in the miror. Is she saying she cherishes her own friendship!! I can easily overlay another sentiment or remove this one if I choose to. No mistakes in card making, sometimes just some readjusting!!
