A Special Graduation

Our gardener came by the other day to cut the grass, and he mentioned that he wanted a card for his granddaughter. I've told him to ask anytime (I give him and his wife cards from time-to-time), so I was thrilled to say the least! So he cut the grass, my dogs barked (they especially love to bark at him; I tell him it's a compliment!), and I made this card with a pop-up money holder:


I took the photo really early in the morning, so the lighting is off... But there's a lot of shimmer. I used this DP for my sister-in-law's graduation card, and had just enough left over for this project.

He asked specifically for the card to show how proud he is of her, and I found the perfect sentiment at TLC Creations. I printed it on shiny white paper and cut it with a banner die (Spellbinders). The balloon is a die cut from Scrapbook Attic, and the "celebrate" is actually a metal embellishment that I heat-embossed with blue & green glitter (Peacock embossing powder). I used some Turquoise Stickles on the corners.


I made a little pocket for the inside, to tuck some money into:

He seemed to like it! Seems like an excellent trade for me never having to learn to use a lawn mower, ha!
