LAST DAY TO SAVE!!
Have you got a graduation celebration coming up in the next few months? Today I wanted to share a fun card ensemble I made for a graduate gift!
Let's start with the card. I used the Label Card Thinlits die to create the card base from Island Indigo and cut the inside of the card with Whisper White. Then, I had a little fun with the Bravo photopolymer stamp set and stamped on the Whisper White with Tuxedo Black, then coloured in some of the letters with Stampin Write markers. I tied some Silver Baker's Twine to the inside piece and adhered all the layers on the card base.
Then I took the Tiny Treat Box and created a grad cap out of it. 🙂 I cut 2 strips about 1" long out of the Island Indigo cardstock, then used the Labels Collection Framelits die to create the peak along the edge of the strips and adhered them to the box along the top edge (notice the box is upside down to allow opening the box). I cut a square about 3" for the top of the cap. Then, I created a tassle out of the Silver Bakers Twine, punched a hole in the top of the square, threaded the tassle through the hole and adhered the tassle to the underside of the cap top. Then I added a circle epoxy sticker from the Itty Bitty Accents Epoxy Stickers to the top.
To finish off the box, I stamped the WooHoo! stamp from Big News and the stars are from the candle in the same set. I used the Stampin' Write markers to ink up on the parts of the stamps I wanted to use. I then used the little banner die from the Label Card Thinlits to die cut the sentiment and adhered it to the front of the box.
Now I think this ensemble would be great for gift giving- you could fit a small gift in this box- like some jewelry, money or chocolates.
Here are the supplies I used to create this ensemble:
