Cricutters Anonymouse challenge

Good morning.  Today I am playing along with the challenge over at Cricutters Anonymous.  The challenge is to create a gift for a family member.  My project is a gift card holder for my daughter's boyfriend.  Eveyone in our family consider him "family" because he has been around a long time and has become part of our family.  He will be graduating from college in May so we have decided to give him some sort of gift card as a graduation present.  We just have not decided on which one we will get for him.

I searched Splitcoast looking for instructions for making a gift card holder and came across the instructions for a diagonal double pocket card.  This was fairly easy to make and has a perfect slot for a gift card.

My "graduate" was created with my Cricut Expression along with the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge.  For the diploma, I stamped the school initials using Brayton 25 point font by JustRite.  My sentiment in the lower righthand side is created using Favorite Occasions borders & centers set (JustRite).  The border was stamped using Versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder.  Each layer is diecut with Spellbinders Classic Circles Nestabilities.  The sentiment "Good Job Nate" was also created with the Brayton 25 point font (JustRite).

To dressup the gold paper, I used the Cuttlebug Stars embossing folder to create stars for the "star student".

Thanks for stopping in for a visit today.  Have a great day!
