B.Y.O.P. Graduation Gift Card

Stampin Up Congratulations Graduation Card By Mary Fish StampinUp

B.Y.O.P. means “buy your own present” and a pretty gift card envelope makes the presentation of a graduation gift card even more special.  My daughter, Caroline, is graduating from college in May (with graduate school starting in the fall) and this will be from her VERY proud parents.

  • I used Stampin’ Dimensionals below the stars to create three “anchors” to keep the gift card in place.  Simply slide out from the 5″ x 3 1/2″ note card and untie the Baker’s twine to access the gift card inside the envelope.

  • Stars Framelits Dies and the star punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack were key in creating quick and easy stars.

  • The perfect polish.  Since I placed the stars “outside the lines” of the 5″ x 3 1/2″ notecard, I used a Medium Clear Envelope so that it fit and immediately said WOW!
