Happy Graduation!

Well...it happened...my littlest brother graduated from college!  YAY!  So proud of him...he has worked so hard!  We went out the other night to celebrate, and this was the card I made for him...


I saw this card layout somewhere.  And that was my inspiration for this card.  I can't find it now.  I thought it was on Stampin' Up!'s homepage.  I will try to find it and update this post to link back to that creation.  But it's using the "Blue Ribbon" stamp set.  So much fun!  I forget about this set, but it's so fun!  Then I layered the Silver Foil Vellum over the Designer Series Paper .  Such a fun look!

Here are a couple more views...



There is actually a pocket on the inside of the card (to hold money, of course ;-) ).  I just made this by using 12x12 cardstock, cut to 4 1/4" x 12".  Then I scored it at 5 1/2" and 11".  Fold the 11" score line up, so it will be on the inside of the card.  Then secure the side.  This way...you still have a standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card with a 1" pocket inside.  Here is a pic of the inside...


I wrote my message on the top note and slide the money in the pocket.  And graduation gift ready to go!  Hope you enjoy!  And cause I know you want to see this college grad (woot! woot!!!), here is a pic of me and my bro...



So proud of him!  Hope this card inspires you to create something today!!!  Let me know if you have any questions!  designwithink@gmail.com
