This is the first time I've used this "Great Grads" set by Stampin Up! I purchased this set last month especially for making my graduation cards this year and now I'm rushing to get them done today when I need them. Go figure!
I needed some inspiration, so I went to Splitcoaststampers and searched the gallery for cards using this set. One of my favorites was this card by Sharon Johnson. She has a terrific tutorial on her blog "No Time To Stamp" and other than changing the size and designer paper, my card is pretty much a total CASE of her card.
The second photo is of the inside of my money holder card and the side tab envelope. I've enclosed the folded cash in a piece of white paper that I stamped and wrote our personal congratulations on.
I've lots to accomplish today, so better run... have a warm and wonderful weekend everyone and thanks so much for blogging by!
