Happy Graduation Gift Card Holder

Hi everyone!

Graduation season is approaching, and here's a quick gift card holder that you can make for your graduate.

The stamps are all from Prickley Pear's most recent release. I stamped the Graduate Text stamp repeatedly onto some More Mustard cardstock and then punched out some star shapes. I tried to center at least one word when punching each star - this stamp is full of great graduation type words: congratulations, acheivement, degree, diploma, future... would be great to stamp a background and then highlight a few!

The Happy Graduation circle was stamped and punched and then I stamped the Small Graduate and cut it out, mounting it in the center of the circle. These are my brother-in-law's school colors, as he's the graduate in our family this year!

I first found the pattern for this gift card holder on Jen del Muro's blog here. I love this design.

The details have been posted for the next Waltzingmouse Stamps Monthly Blog Waltz, which will be held Monday, May 17th. You can find the details here on the WMS blog. I hope you can waltz along with us!

That's all for me for today, have a great night! GO PENS!!
