Graphic 45 Place in Time Garden Themed Birthday Card Tutorial
Hello, Friends! It’s a big birthday month in the Clement household, so I’m filling up any spare minutes I can find making birthday cards. I have a Graphic 45 Place in Time Garden Themed Birthday Card Tutorial to share with you today. Our older daughter loves to garden. It’s her therapy. So I pulled out the August Cut Apart pages from my Place in Time Deluxe Collector’s Edition, some gorgeous Little Birdie Fall Flowers and Really Reasonable Ribbon and got my craft on!
This 5″ x 7″ top fold card folio has a 1/2″ spine that leaves lots of room for goodies on the inside. Machine stitching, distressed edges, buttons and flowers lend it a sweet country feel.
This really is a very quick card to make. I prepared a process video for you so that you can see how it came together and make one yourself.
These fall flowers from Little Birdie Crafts are so incredibly gorgeous! I used blossoms and foliage from their Adelina, English Roses and Paulina Fall Colors assortment. The Moss Green and Cream Plaid Ribbons work perfectly with this card design, too.
You’ll notice in the video that I did not add metal corners. That was a last minute decision after the video had already been edited and uploaded. I needed something in the lower left hand corner of the focal image to kind of frame and balance it. The metal corners are tapped with Vintaj Patina ink (Moss and Verdigris).

This is a new way to make a pocket, and I am loving how quick and easy it is to make. You will learn how in the video tutorial below.
I’ll also show you how to create this cutie patootie gift card holder from scraps. It’s so easy, and looks adorable tucked into the pocket.
