Designer Yana Smakula is here today to show off some fabulous Graphic45 from their Secret Garden collection!
The beautiful intricate pattern of the lavender paper makes the large expanse of pattern appear lush and full, instead of feeling like white space since the paper is the only element. The curving arc across the top of the patterned paper – cut with a Spellbinders A2 Curved Borders One die – is the perfect soft way to top the block of pattern off. A straight line would have been too harsh and graphic to match well with the other design elements.
This card also has a design element that could serve double duty. The seed packet cards are tucked into a pocket created behind the patterned paper element – that pocket could also serve to hold a gift like a gift card or tickets.
