TUESDAY May 10, 2011- Here Comes the Grad

My card today is a gift card/money holder.  I cut a  12x12 piece of paper at 4 1/4", scored at 5 1//2 and 11".  I folded the bottom 1" to the inside and used two eyelets to hold the fold in place.  This gives you a place to put the gift card or money in.  It was a very quick and easy gift card holder.


Stamps:  Here Comes the Grad
Paper:  12x12 real red, Snow Storm Smooth
Ink:  Soft Suede, real red, Versa Mark (for the gold embossed tassel inside the card)
Misc:  brads, cording, eyelets, gold embossing powder


Now, on to the next blog on the list
