Class of 2010

A quick graduate gift card holder for you today. My brother-in-law graduated from high school last week and I needed something quick for his monetary gift.

I used some of the many applicable sentiments from Free Spirit - Sentiments to create my text background. The 'Congrats' and 'Class Of' and numbers are also from the Sentiment set. The graduation cap is from the Free Sprit - Boy set. The card was made in his high school colors.

Here is what the card looks like when it is open.

Instead of using ribbon to keep it closed, I created a little tab that tucks under the front of the card. Seemed a little more manly to me than a big ol' bow :)

I first found the pattern for this type of gift card here on Jen del Muro's blog. I have used it many times since then!

It is great to see so many of you participating in the new Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenges! If you haven't heard - you can see all the details (and pick up a sparkly blog blinkie!) here.

Thanks for stopping by - I hope you have a great day!
