Graduation card with Gift card Pocket

So here I am after a looong break…. I have missed creating new things and writing about it here =) But work had me bogged down for a while. But school has ended, vacation on… more time from card making 😀 

One of our pals graduated 2 weeks ago…. finally after 4 years of hardwork, he graduated from Pharmacy School…. everyone is proud of him. Of course we went for his graduation… and I am sure he knew he would be getting a nice card from us 🙂 So here is what I created for him…wishing him on his graduation.

A simple card, with schools colors (after going through the school website, these are the colors I found…so I assumed these were school colors :D) and a big graduation cap with some pretty tassels. The cap is popped up using 3-dimesional glue. I made this card dual purpose with a pocket on the inside to hold a gift card.

The pocket was a quick creation — cut the cardstock to size I liked…started with approx 4″ x 3″ piece and cut it down till the size I liked. I used a 1″ circle punch to make an opening to pull the gift card out, put sticky tape on 3 sides and stuck it down. The cute little message added perfectly to this card (since the front had huge cap and tassels) which I decided to pop up. Popping the cap and message inside did make the card a little bulky. But since I was going to hand it personally I thought it would be okay. If I had to mail a similar card, I would not pop the message.

Last look:

 I absolutely enjoyed making this card for our grad….. I wish him tonnes of success while he works on his American Dream =)

Until next time,

Cheers =)
