Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Easy Gift Card Holder

Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Easy Gift Card Holder

Hello everyone! Today I have a really quick little project to share using the Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Deluxe Collectors Edition. I created some fun gift card holders using the Graphic 45 Large Ivory Tags.

Botanical Tea Gift Card Holders

This project is really easy and uses minimal supplies. I have a quick little video showing you how to put this little project together. Each gift card holder requires one large ivory tag that you will score at 2 inches and at 5 inches. Score a 1 x 3-1/2 piece of ivory cardstock at 1/2 inch to create a hinge. Using the large tag die from Graphic 45 die cut 2 tags. One for the front and one for the back. Check out the short video tutorial.

I used some ribbon trim to tie the gift card holder closed but you could also use a really cute clip. Have a great day!

Simple Stories Rad Grad Cards

Simple Stories Rad Grad Cards

Hello everyone! What do you do when you need some quick graduation cards? Simple Stories Rad Grad collection to the rescue! I created three really quick and easy cards. Here’s a look at the first card I created using this fun collection.
SS Rad Grad Card one
This card measures 5-1/2×5-1/2. The base of the card is black cardstock. I added some layers of black and white behind the design papers to just separate the patterns. The sentiment on the front is one of the 4×4 cut outs from the collection making this card really quick. I used a gold glitter shimmer pen over the writing and stars. I left the inside of this first card blank.
SS Rad Grad Card one open
I did use some of the design papers to finish off the inside.

For the second card I decided to create a fun gatefold style card.
SS Rad Grad Card Two

I used another one of the cut outs for the focal point on the front of the card. Lots of layers with the black and white cardstock to separate the patterns. I had some gold star brads in my stash so I added those to the front as well.

SS Rad Grad Card two open

I used the Happy, Happy, Happy stamp set from Lawn Fawn for the inside sentiment. I added another cute gold star brad to finish it off.

I decided to create a fun fold card for the third one. Here’s a look at the front of the card.
SS Rad Grad Card Three

Again the cut out is the focal point on the front. I used a little star punch and add some black glitter stars to the upper left hand corner of this Z fold card. Here’s a look at the inside.

I used the same sentiment from the Lawn Fawn stamp set but this time I heat embossed the word “happy” with some gold embossing powder. A couple more black glitter stars and this card is ready to go!

There you have it! Three quick but fun cards for graduation.

Have a great week!
