Emily's Graduation Card
Birthday Thank You

Graduation Card and Gift Card Holder



It is graduation time and that means a lot of cards and gift card holders.  I made this card and holder for Emily's roommate, Nichole. Nichole is also very special to our family as she has been our neighbor for the last 17 years.  

To make this card I made three triangles of different sizes for the front.  Here are the dimensions for the triangles:

  • the largest one (Tangelo Twist) is 3 7/16" across the bottom and 4 7/16" high.  
  • the middle one (Early Espresso)  is 2 3/16" across the bottom and 2 13/16"high
  • the smallest one  (Tangelo Twist) is 1 13/16" across the bottom and 2 5/16" high 

If you have the Bigz L Perfect Pennants die (this is retired) you can use it and you will get the same sizes. 

To make the little cap I cut the Tangelo Twist into a 1 3/8" square and the Early Espresso is 1 1/4" square.  I used the paper piercing tool #126189 and the Stampin' Pierce Mat #126199.  I then put one of the Candy Dots Brad Bases #132293 and added a rhinestone to the top of it.  I also used rhinestones on the smallest triangle.   I made a male version of the card and used the mini brads #122491.  The picture below shoes both versions of the card.  


I didn't have any bakers twine that color so I used embroidery thread instead.  You can use any saying you wish for the front.  I had the stamp set from Sale A Bration called Perfect Pairings and Congrats fit perfectly.  

On Friday I had the directions on how to make the gift card holder. Click Here for the post.  

I hope everyone has a fabulous week!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Happy Stampin!
