LWD Design Team Showcase: Graphic 45 Couture Paper, Chipboard, & Stickers

Good morning everyone!  Today I'm going to share a card I made using a Jumbo Tag and Graphic 45's Couture Paper, Chipboard, and Stickers.  Graphic 45 is one of my favorite paper companies and their paper and accessories are fun to use.





Take a Giant Craft Tag (#12 size) and fold it over until the bottom edge abuts the grommet hole.  Score with a bone folder.  



Now cut a piece of paper to fit the short fold and attach.  I used a tape runner I had laying around.  This is really too much “paper attaching” to use a wet glue.





Continue cutting and gluing until all sections of the folded tag (um, card) have been covered.



Cover the outside fold of your card with a complementary tape.  I like this one since it showed different styles of shoes and fit the Couture paper quite well.



Now for the fun part!  Grab your Couture paper, stickers, and chipboard and start combining elements.  I fussy-cut some of the images out from the paper pages.



Once your satisfied with your arrangement, glue or stick everything down.  I used foam squares on the woman at the bottom of the left page to make her stand out.



Don’t forget the front!  I attached some of the Graphic 45 stamp stickers to the front of my tag card to make it more dimensional and ran a boarder from the sticker sheet around the top and bottom. 

Now you have a card to give to someone “just because”!

Just came here to check and see the comments others had left and didn't see my own....I left a comment the first day but apparently it didn't publish. So sorry! I really like the card you made with the giant tag...such a neat way to make a card. And G45 is always the paper for the job! Thanks for another great project!
