Graphic 45 | Congratulations On Your Special Day


#main shot large

What a beautiful way to say congratulations! With the help of the vintage beauty of Graphic45, designer Sharon Callis is showing us today an elegant and sophisticated way to extend congratulations to someone special. This card could be appropriate for a wedding, birthday, or other special honor such as a retirement or winning an award – the sort of out of ordinary occasion that we don’t tend to have cards in our stashes pre-made for to grab when they arise.

No matter the setting – home decor, party planning, or crafting – a profusion of flowers is a great way to create a feeling of luxury. This card’s elegance is enhanced by the explosion of flowers, some of them extra fancy with glitter highlights.
