Getting ready for the end of the school year means thanking those who have spent the year inspiring our little ones to learn. Today Kate Nolan Denham is sharing a gift bag and card made with a variety Core’dinations Cardstock.
I decorated a simple kraft gift bag from Darice by creating a base designed to look similar to a chalk board. The same base design was used for the thank you card.
The giant cardstock pencils on both the bag and card were scored, sanded and bent to give it the 3-D effect of a real pencil.
This sweet pic of my girl, Emma, and one of her closest friends was taken this past summer and I was so excited that I could use this fun lace doily embossing folder on my Core’dinations cardstock as is matched with Mackenzie’s creme top .
I chose several colors of Core’dinations to pick up the colors in my pictures and used the same portion of the embossing folder on each one. One of my fave things about Core cardstock is how well it picks up the tiniest details of the embossing folder like with this one when you sand it gently. The lace pattern really stands out so beautifully!
I rounded the corners and cut my larger photo the same way. For the smaller ring pictures, I cut the photo down to what I wanted to show and then cut it in half again to adhered it on 2 different mats.
