Graduation Gift Card/Money holders

I needed a few more graduation cards, so I thought I'd make some CAS (clean and simple) gift card holders. These are 2 3/8" x 3 3/4", with a 1" piece folded up on the inside to tuck the gift in. If you're going to put a gift card inside though, make sure the staples are really close to the edge...mine are in too far. Which isn't a big deal since I was going to include cash anyway. I made these the size they are because I have the cutest little envelopes that are 2 1/2" x 4 1/4". These cards fit nicely.

These went together really quickly too. I just stamped the lined paper image, from the Verve set Making a Statement, with Nautical Blue Memento Dye Ink and diecut it with the Rounded Rectangle Die by Verve. The sentiment is from the set Small Celebrations. Lastly, I added a mini-library clip (SU!) and a couple of diecut stars (Spellbinders), and woila. Finished. Wait...I did add a couple of score lines to the top and bottom of the base using my Score-Buddy, and stapled the inside piece.

I had only one girl Graduation card to make this year. Isn't that crazy? Out of 12 graduations, only one girl. WOW! So I decided to make hers different and girly. I used a tutorial that I found on pinterest, by Glenda Calkins, and the little sentiment flag was made using the Verve stamp set Purely Sentimental.

For the inside, I just cut a piece of dp, and punched a border using a Martha Stewart edger punch. I also added a Prima flower, and used some large Magnet discs (Basicgrey) for the top closer which was diecut using the Labels 20 die by Spellbinders.

That's it for today ya'll!! I hope those of you in the states are enjoying Memorial Weekend.
Happy Stamping!!
