Graphic 45 Typography Card Tutorial

Project number three of five today! All part of my holding-onto-my-current-design-team-status-for-as-long-as-possible stunt.

This is a simple little card I made using Graphic 45's Typography line, a stunning Spellbinders die and of course, pretty Petaloo flowers. I actually made this back in August 2013 but it got buried amongst so many other DT projects. It's a very quick and simple tutorial - scroll down to see my supply list, photos and step-by-step instructions!

Step 1. Take Dream paper and cut out all the pieces in the photo.

Step 2. Locate the following pieces from your Typography Tags & Pockets.

Step 3. Find the following chipboard pieces, fussy cut one flower from Celebrate paper, and set aside 2 black flowers. You are free to fussy cut more flowers and add more chipboard and flowers!

Step 4. Take Inspire paper and cut the following: (1) 2 3/8” x 4 3/8”, (1) 3” x 5”, (1) 4.25” x 4.25”. Use a fancy edge punch or die on the 4.25” square piece, such as the Captivating Squares die from Spellbinders.

Step 5. Take Imagine paper and cut off the bottom row, but do not cut the individual images. Score between each image (at 4” and 8”) and fold, so that the back of the crayon box image is face first.

Step 6. Cut the “Write Your Story” image from your remaining Imagine paper. Punch a half circle off the top, then fold paper so that .25” from the back is sticking up. Adhere sides to make a pocket.

Step 7. Open your card to the “Typography” image. Adhere 2 3/8” x 4 3/8” Inspire paper and pocket. Insert tag. Adhere (2) Dream numbers of your choice.

Step 8. Take Dream number border and cut in half. Take one piece, fussy cut flower, chipboard tag, 3” x 5” Inspire paper, and Dream paper. Arrange per photo and adhere.

Step 9. Adhere other Dream number border to far right of Imagine “joie de vivre” image.

Step 10. Flip Imagine “joie de vivre” over. Adhere “Write Your Story” piece to bottom of page. Insert Dream quotes.

Step 11. Flip crayon box image page over. Adhere 4.25” Inspire paper, Dream quote, flowers, and chipboard button per photo.

Step 12. Take Dream flower border and adhere to the back of your card per photo. Take piece from tags & pockets and insert through border. Place foam dots underneath. Adhere the end of the left border to front of card. Fold border on the right over and tuck inside tags & pockets piece. Apply pearls.
