Graduation Card, Gift Bag & More with Celebrate You Collection and Lisa Mensing
Hello, crafty friends. Lisa Mensing here from Confetti and Card with Lisa Mensing. Today I am sharing three projects using the Celebrate You Collection. This collection has everything you need to celebrate all your family members and friends! It’s not often that I create graduation projects and cards for newlyweds, but this collection made that so easy. Let’s check it out.
Mini Slimline Graduation Card
This mini slimline graduation card is my first project. Earlier, I mentioned that I found the graduation cap to be so easy to assemble, and the reason for that is that the dies do all the work. I simply die cut turquoise, black, and silver cardstock using the Hats Off to You Etched Dies, assembled with liquid adhesive, stamped the sentiment from the Sentiments for You Clear Stamp Set onto white cardstock, and layered onto turquoise cardstock both pieces were cut with dies from the Sentiment Labels Etched Die Set.
I layered all the elements onto a slimline card base and finished this off with gem stickers.
Graduation Gift Bag
Here’s a gift bag I made using the Gift Bag Etched Die Set. It’s easy to assemble the bag using the embossed fold lines, just be mindful of the folds and you’ll get it done in no time. For the gift bag, I ran two pieces of white cardstock through my Platinum machine with the Gift Bag Etched Die.
The bag was assembled with double-sided tape, and the handles were attached with liquid adhesive. Use binder clips to hold the pieces together. I die-cut all the pieces from the Hats Off to You Etched Die Set to create a bag that coordinates with my mini slimline graduation cards.
Faux stitching and a faux shaker make this card easy to create. With turquoise cardstock, I ran the Stitched Petal Frame through my Platinum machine. I added faux stitching with a silver gel pen and added foam adhesives to the backside to pop it off an A2 white card base.
I then adhered silver sequins to all the openings, added black gem stickers to the die-cut panel, and hot foiled the sentiment from the Celebrate You Sentiments Hot Foil Plates using Prism Foil on black cardstock to finish off the card. Using the Sentiment Labels Etched Die Set, I cut out the sentiment strip.
White, black, turquoise cardstock, foam squares, glossy accents, silver sequins. Black gem stickers, double-sided tape, glue.
