Put It In a Pocket Blog Hop....

I'm so HAPPY to be joining the talented group of CTMH Consultants for this month's Blog Hops with Heart theme of...

STICK IT IN A POCKET!!!


If you've come from Jayma's Blog, you're on the right track...keep hopping around 'till you get back to where you started! If you started from the beginning, this is your last stop!

I hope my project qualifies as a "pocket"...it's a graduation card envelope with a little bit of spending cash for the graduate! Before you go thinking I'm a cheap gift-giver, I don't carry cash so this is all I had on me...lol

------------------------------------------
I didn't adhere any of the sides so it will open all the way up and reveal the cash! I used CTMH's Magical Collection and the NEW Smarty Pants stamp set! The band slides right off and the card opens up...I used some Shimmer Trim to create a little holder...I peeled off the ends of the backing but left the center part so it doesn't stick to the cash! The "Congratulations" sentiment is adhered only by staples...

Thanks for stopping by! If you missed out on any of the other blogs, head on over to Amie's Blog and keep going 'till you see all seven blogs!

Inspiration for this card came from my PIN found {{{here}}}.

I'm due at a whole bunch of graduation parties this year. I'd love to be leaving something this adorable behind.
