Bloggers Challenge - Graduation

Wow - this week is already challenge #45 - how time files! This weeks challenge theme is Graduation - I'll be needing plenty of ideas - as my oldest will be graduating in a few weeks. I decided to use the Double Pocket Fold from a past TJNL - altering mine a bit. When this technique was first posted back in 10/07 - I had used a piece of 6" x 6" paper, and made my flap fold to the front so it opened like a card. That size was too small to hold a gift card - so for my challenge card, I used a piece of paper 9" x 9" - this helped to accommodate the sentiment from Great Grads that I'm using.














Details:
Stamps - Great Grads
Ink - Blue Bayou
Card Stock - River Rock, Western Sky DSP
Ribbon - Double Stitched Blue Bayou


If you'd like to play along - just leave a link to your graduation card on this post, or if you upload to SCS, use keyword BC45.

Have a great weekend - don't forget to check out Allie's Blog Candy at Croppinsville!

I think your variation is wonderful! It looks like you tucked a credit card in there -- is that his graduation gift? Lucky him!

Great card, nonetheless -- surely an inspiration

Very cute card. I need to stamp a few as my son and friends are also graduating. Nothings impresses a kid more than a hand made card with a few presidents in it. Very cute card, now to hunt down my TJNL file folder.
