Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.
Today's idea is a couple of Graduation card ideas.
This first one is a card and gift pocket on the back.
This is a basic Spring Card.
Dawn Griffin has a wonderful supply list and video on how to
make this card, except I changed it up to make the front a Graduation
cap. Black and white paper and a couple of Graduation Stamps and a tassel
is all you need to make this card. Folds flat for mailing and pops up
when removed from the envelope. Front sentiment Inkadinkado (95060K)

And on the back, there's a pocket to hold cash or a gift card.
Sentiment on the back Hero Arts (F1171)

Another simple card to make, just like the layout and simplicity.
I used Navy Blue (but you could use any school colors) and
POM silver glitter paper, love this stuff, it's super sparkly and
thin, so it doesn't add bulk. Just a few simple layers, but
pretty elegant, I think. The sentiment on the front is
Wordsworth (s345K)
Thanks for stopping by today. Until later..............

I have not seen this fold before and I love it. Goes perfect with the mortar board.

I have used the thin glittery paper before and love it myself. Easy to work with and doesn' glitter me up too! The geometrical design is perfect for navy and silver. Wow Card for sure.
