Graduation Cards

So, I'm a little late on making my graduation cards, but they are now done!! I am sure the kids will appreciate a little extra $$ even though it's been a month since graduation. Both cards are the Z Fold cards which were super simple to make. I just cut 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock in half, folded it in half and then folded the front flap back in half again. On both cards I used My Pink Stamper's Happy Graduation Stamp from the Happiest Moments stamp line.

For the Hello Kitty card I used Hello Kitty Greetings and usedthis weeks Peachy Keen Challenge as my inspiration. I cut Kitty at 5 1/2 inches (it may have been only 5). I added the silver paper cut at 1/4 inches smaller. I used the Martha Stewart Bubble Punch on the inside silver paper and added a silver ribbon to the front flap. There is a pocket behind the Hello Kitty to hold the money. Of course I added a little stickles for some sparkle and called it done!

For the second card, I went with a simpler approach. I cuttlebugged the top part of the card using the stars and inked them. I used the Wild Card graduation cap card for the front but cut off one side of the card so it was no longer a card. (Did that make any  sense at all?!) I used Tags Bags Boxes and More for the tag on the front and stamped Congratulations from the same stamp line mentioned above. I attached the tag with brads. On the inside I cut the round star shape using the icon function of the graduation cap card and added the phrase function that reads Class of. For the inside I made a simple pocket to hold money using Tags Bags Boxes and More. Since this card is for a young man, I left off stickles! :)
