Graphic 45’s Nature Sketchbook Trio – by Deb Saaranen

(LOTS of SALES right now – check links below)

Deb created a super lovely trio of cards for us today using the beautiful papers and embellishments from the Nature Sketchbook collection by Graphic 45 along with a fun “Thanks” sentiment and die set from Altenew. Each card takes on its own shape and size. Take a look:

What a beautiful nature inspired trio – and all quick makes.

We always love that!

DLSThanksGraphic45Botanical 460x556

This card uses one of the ephemera cards as the card front – easy peasy.

The addition of the stamped and die cut thanks sentiment goes perfectly here, especially when Deb cut her thanks from coordinating paper in the collection.

And I always love Deb’s signature seam binding bow – tutorial linked below with supplies.

This little square card serves as a gift tag – super fun!

The chipboard tag embellishment is from one of the chipboard die cut sheets.

The Bee Yourself strips are cut from the 8×8 paper pad.

This pretty card relies on chipboard from one of the chipboard die cut sheets as the focal image.

Again, so easy peasy!

You can find Deb’s post on her blog here.
