Remember how I said I had no need for graduation cards this year? Well, turns out that my Niece(really, DH's) graduates 8th grade this coming June. When I found out, I knew exactly what kind of card I wanted to make - a Money Holder.
I remembered seeing the perfect sketch to go with my idea - Sweet Sunday Sketch #117. The TALL design, just called Money Holder to me.
For my color inspiration, I went with the Color Throwdown #142.
I don't use Stampin' Up cardstock, so I matched my Bazzill cardstock as close as possible. I used BlackBird, Limade, & Stonehedge.
The Owl is from the Create A Critter Cartridge cut at 1-1/2". I made the branch a bit smaller by cutting it at 1-3/8". The Graduation Cap is from the Locker Talk Cartridge and was resized with DS to 1.195" x .78" to fit the owl. I used my Peachy Keen Critter Faces Med. Set for the owl's eyes. I also did some white doodling around the owl, branch and cap. I'm not to happy with the way that turned out, guess I better practice some more.
The sentiment is from Pink Cat Studio and is available for FREE. I used PSE8 to rearrange the words into one line instead of a cluster.
Now, on to the Money Holder part of the card. I designed it using Design Studio and Plantin SchoolBook.
There also is an option to use the Birthday Bash Cartridge for a more decorative opening, as shown on my card.
There is enough room to fit a few dollar bills, check, savings bond, etc and a personal message.
This would make a great gift for any graduate - Pre-K, Kindergarten, Middle School, High School, and even College. Who doesn't need a few extra $$?
