Go Grads!

I know a LOT of graduates this year. Along with my own 2 college grads and 1 high school graduate, I needed 3 other cards to send. And since my schedule hasn't allowed me a lot of stamping time, I needed them to be on the simple side. So I came up with this easy money holder. I started with 9x12 piece of cardstock and just scored it at 3" intervals. Then I cut the last panel at a diagonal and folded it inward. (I didn't find it necessary to glue this panel down.) I sent the cards in the mail and so I actually mailed a check which fit perfectly. I personalized them by using each graduate's school colors for the embossed layer. I hope they enjoy them!I hope everyone is having a great Memorial Day weekend. My plans? I am preparing to whip my stamp room into shape while hubby watches the race!
I do want to say a special thank you to all of our veterans, military members and families and especially to those who gave all. Thank you.
