Congrats to the Grad!

Since my husband is a teacher, we get at least a few graduation announcements every year. This year was a little slower than others - only one, so this is a card for his former student.

I had almost forgotten about this graduation cap in the Event Full hostess set, but I thought it would work perfectly for yesterday's Ways to Use It challenge to use "inchies". I was also inspired by this card by Silke Ledlow.

The card is pretty straightforward, so I would go into a lot of details. It is a 4x4" gift card holder. The sentiment is from Papertrey's Mixed Messages, and the 2008 at the bottom is from a small "dial" date stamp I have (with the month and day masked off).

For the inside, I just adhered a piece of black and white patterned paper on the fold of the pocket. Nothing fancy, since the important part will be what's in the pocket!

Stamps: Event Full, Mixed Messages, date stamp (maker unknown)
Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White
DSP: maker unknown
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Black & White ribbon (maker unknown), Silver Brads
