Class of 2009!

Well I have just checked my Lotto numbers for tonight and unfortunately I haven't won anything so life will carry on the same for me!

Onto today's card then, this card fits with a number of this weeks challenges starting with the one on 365 cards for today, the theme was to make a graduation card, I didn't actually need one but thought I could have a go anyway.

I am also entering it for the challenge on Cupcake Crafts # 38 who want to see Numbers on your card.

The challenge over at Creative Card Crew # 9 - Everyone Emboss, well that one speaks for itself.
Lastly I am entering it for the ABC challenge - M is for metallic

I haven't made a standard card this time but another money holder, here it is



and the inside


I am quite pleased with the way this turned out considering I have never needed a Graduation card before.

I made the card from Bazzill CS cut in an 'L' shape, the inside was lined with paper before the bottom was folded up to make a pocket.

On the front I have added a piece of PP which has been embossed with my CB Script embossing folder. I cut the Numbers using my Cricut from black card. The notepaper was torn from a memo pad and the stickers were added, I matted the paper onto a piece of white card before adding the metal clip. The Diploma is just printer paper rolled and tied with a narrow ribbon. To finish I added some tiny congratulations peel off to the side of the card.

On the inside i have added a ribbon to the top of the pocket and a row of congratulations peel offs to the bottom of the card. the inside was finished off with a Mortarboard which I made out of a square of Black Bazzill, a black brad and some sewing thread with which I made the tassel.

Here is what I used-

Card base - Bazzill - Aloe Vera
Paper - Shabby Princess - Urban Kiwi
Ribbon - Basic Grey
Everything else from my stash

Hope you like it

This is a great card, it just suits graduation so well, with the notepad paper, the letters and the hat on the inside on the money pocket. And for your first graduation card, you rocked at it :) Thanks for playing with us at CCC for the number challenge this week! :)

That is a great grad card! I heard on the news that 1 person from Spain won the whole £100+ million! Just think what you could do with that!

I think your money holder is a great idea! I remember how short I was after I graduated from University, only £12k of student loans to pay off!
