Gift card & Wedding card with Graduation Collection

Hello today i am able to show 2 cards. Both cards were made mostly with supplies provided by Magnolia Sweden. I have added some things that our sponsor for this weeks Cute Card Thursday provided for the Design Team to work with. Thank you also on this spot to the wonderful Deb who did not hesitate to sent me to the USA some goodies to play with!

For my first card i used the gift card holder. I have punched with my Martha Stewart punch a decorative border, folded it over and use the ribbon as a closure. In the inside i have simply stamped the Magnolia Graduation hat right on the paper. For a moment i considered to stamp on the other side a sentiment, but i had folded already the zick-zack and i was worried to mess it up.
The second card was inspired by the black card base that Magnolia sent to work with. I had 3 6x6 bases and this little one with 3 sheets of Designer Paper. For the little card i have worked just with my Cuttlebug embossing folder. I did not get the sitting Tilda from the Graduation Collection so i just used the glass vertical. Around the card i have added a clear acetate sheet folded in half provided by our sponsor and tied the ribbon so to the cards that it would hold in place. To make the ribbon ends curl a bit, i just held my heat gun for a moment to the organdy. The card was done.. but something was just missing :-) so i went with my little brush and some Shimmerz in "candle light" over my glass. This paint dries really fast so i just held the acetate a little bit open and within minutes the card could be closed.

check out the very new cute Basic Grey papers Lemonade and June bug :-)

Hi Claudia
I love the wedding card!Thats my fav, only because I have such a hard time thinking of something for a wedding thats not too cutsie but elegant and you have it! The other cards are really nice too, a different look for adding gift cards which I'll store in my head for future use:-) you picked two kinds of cards this week that gave me some inspiration for the next time I need something on that line.
Really nicely done on all!
