Graduation Card (Blog Hop)

Hello and Welcome to the Graduation Blog Hop!!!  We hope to inspire you with some Graduation projects!!

You should have arrived from SHARON.  If you found me first, please hop to the BEGINNING so you don't miss any projects (or the chance to win some blog candy)!!
My middle son graduated from high school last year and you can see what I made for his party HERE and the cards I made for his friends HERE if you like.

For my post today, I made a couple of cards that hold gift cards or cash.  I don't make many cards anymore, but I try to make graduation cards so I can personalize the school colors!!

I started out with a file from Silhouette:
I cut the pieces out in blue, black and white and used my ATG gun to adhere them together.  I used my fine tip glue pen to adhere the sentiment.
I made a tassel out of DMC floss for the cap and secured it with tape before I adhered the cap to the card.
Perfect for tucking in a gift card or cash!

You next stop is EVA!

We do have some blog candy:


Here is the entire line up in case you get lost along the way:

I love these "spring fold" cards, I did one for my niece when she graduated a few years back, but you did a better job with sizing, I had to put the gift card on the back with a glue dot LOL!!!
