I just completed these graduation card/money holders. Our local graduations are this weekend! Yes, New York State is unusually late.... However, graduation parties begin today and are scheduled throughout the summer. I found the suggestion for this card on Pinterest then altered it a little. I usually do not indulge in stickers but I had previously purchased them and decided it was time to use them. 
I hope that I have enjoyed visiting my blog and that I have inspired you to create a unique fold card. I would love it if you would leave a comment and/ or follow this blog.  Thanks, Barbara

I am posting this card on the following blogs:  Make your own embellishment (tassel)  Anything Goes Red, White and Blue Anything Goes Anything Goes Anything Goes Clean and Simple

Now that life is getting somewhat more normal, I have been able to craft a few cards for the design team: 
 We were fortunate to receive these digital stamps from our sponsor:

This digital stamp was colored with copic markers and shaded with chalk.
I am posting this card on the following challenges: (flowers)   (Anything Goes with a homemade bow) (Anything Goes)

I am posting this card in the following challenges: (Anything Goes) (The Color Orange)

I used the same technique on this stamp. Shading with chalk is so easy and it makes the image just POP! I find making Sympathy Cards so challenging.

This image is called...The Cupcake Sitter. I purchased it awhile ago and decided it was time to use it:) This is a center stair step card. The sentiment is computer generated. Again I shaded with chalk.  I am posting this card in the following challenges: ( Anything Goes) (The Color Orange) (Fun Folds)
