Graduation Money Holder – by Darsie Bruno

What grad doesn’t love to receive some cold, hard cash! Especially when it is presented in such a fun gift card. Is that Ben Franklin in the window opening? I do believe this card will be VERY well received!!! And to top it off, it’s a quick make, which we all love. Take a look:

MoneyHolder 640x373

A simple tent fold card with the graduation blocked collage sentiment stamped repeatedly on the designer paper to create an overall stamped design. The window circle is then die cut for Mr. Franklin to look out!

The white accents are perfect – the knotted ribbon, scroll, embossed Best Wishes and enamel dots.

You can find Darsie’s post on her blog here.
