Define Your Life Grad Card


My first thought for a graduation card for my cousin was to use her school colors.  But after 4 years of college, won't she be tired of the school colors?  It's time to move forward so I chose the Define Your Life set.  The card also opens a little differently.  It is a subtle stab at thinking out of the box - something all graduates are going to have to do to find jobs!  I'm sad for these young men and women who have worked hard, paid gobs of money (or their parents have) and now face such a tough job market.

Of course what I've always heard is that 'no one can take your eduation away from you' so hopefully soon she will find the teaching job she wants.  Then she can help educate the next generation.

Project Notes:

  • The "folder" is cut with the Cricut but you could use a regular manilla folder for a card.  Here's the inside:

  • I used Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartidge to cut the gift card holder.  Sizing to 8" makes the perfect size. 
  • Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher does the stapling.
Congratulations, Allie!
