So I was going through some blog posts looking for something and found this project from Ava Gavloski that never posted! This is such a gorgeous idea for that special graduate in your life! I have a freind going to a graduation party this week so hoping we aren’t too late for you.
Here’s what Ava has to say about creating this awesome project:
Are you getting ready for that Graduation Party? Plan ahead and check out your Core’dinations Cardstock to see if you have some color tones that will match the school colors. Try the de-embossed look to your front card panel, sanding lightly give the card a vintage feel. To stamp a clear image on the glitter paper, ink your stamp, lay your stamp face up and then lay your paper onto the stamp and gentle rub your glitter cardstock over the inked stamp image. This technique should give you a clear impression of your image on the glitter cardstock. This card design allows you to use up small bits and pieces from your core stash with the baner and star embellishments.
Dust off that crimper, find some embossing folders that speak to you and get creative with a few layers of your favorite Core’dinations cardstock. Layers are the secret to volume and a feel good texture. So, join me and make that gift bag with layers of Core cardstock that will be a wow the gift presentation.
Here are some detail shots on the gift bag:
And the fun centerpiece! Love how that Core Couture shines!
When we look out at our crafting community, it’s hard to imagine that pretty much everyone has been touched by Breast Cancer in one way or another.
Design Team Member Char Dobson created this card for us today to remember those who have fought and are fighting today. Please take a moment and reach out to someone you love today!

Char used her Cricut and the Mini Monster cartridge to create these little guys. Next, she ran them through her Cuttlebug with various embossing folders to create the cool textures. Just add a little sanding and some googley eyes and you have the perfect project for Halloween. (P.S. Make sure you scroll down for our Facebook contest we announced today)
