Graduation Hat Easel and Gift/Money Holder Card Video Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog & YouTube channel; today I am going to share with you another Graduation Gift Card/Money Holder option.  If you are like us you are differently going to be needing these right now.  We have gotten a few Graduation invitations from both friends and family.  So that means we will be sending out either gift cards or a little cash; I mean what graduate wouldn't like cash or a gift card right now.   I shared a very super quick and easy card with you yesterday that was a gift card/money holder featuring the Beautiful Promenade Stamp set and matching designer series paper.  I will link to that here so you can check that out.  My card today is actually very easy but looks more complicated.  it can also be customized to match any schools colors.  Here's a look at today's card.

Tips & Tricks: 

Like I said this is a super easy card but looks way more complicated than it really is.  It's just a couple score lines, a little stamping, and a little die cutting.  To start off you will need a piece of 4 1/4 x 11 cardstock in what ever color you need for the school of the graduate.  I did a couple different colors because we have to send them to people in different schools.  So the one in the video tutorial that you will find below in just the Merry Merlot version.  I found it super easy to find matching Stampin' Up! cardstock to each schools colors.  I did two of these types cards and the one I shared yesterday, plus one more that I will share later this week.  
I designed the card so that it could be folded up like a normal card and be placed in one of our medium envelopes, so there's no extra postage.  I also designed it so that when it opens up you can not only have a place to put a gift card or a little cash but it would act like a easel card as well.  
The Celebrate die cuts act as the stopper for the easel but it also helps as my inside sentiment.  Plus I made a place to write a message on the inside as well.  So I think I have all the bases covered so to speak.  Here's a little look at the inside.  
The basic black version is done the exact same way except I changed up a couple of the elements and the dies.  Instead of the basic black mat I used pumpkin pie, and instead of the Celebrate You Dies (Which are retiring, sadly.  So if you want them you need to get them now) I used the Well Written Dies from the Occasions Catalog as well as the Well Said Stamp Set.  On the Merry Merlot version I used Ittly Bitty Greetings.  If you are looking for a stamp set that has almost everything you will need you can find them with both these sets.  

Video Tutorial: 

If you are viewing this post via email you may have to click here to see the video.  For some reason some mail servers will not show the embedded video. 

Sizes & Dimensions: 


  • Merry Merlot Cardstock  - 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 2 3/4 & 5 1/2
  • Merry Merlot Cardstock - 3 x 3 square, sliver of cardstock, 3/4" x 1" & scrap for die cutting words
  • Basic Black Cardstock - 4 1/8 x 2 5/8 you will need two of these
  • Whisper White Cardstock - 4 x 2 1/2 you need three of these 
I gave you the cardstock that I used in the video but like I said before you can change the color as you need.   All the sizes are the same for each version.  

Thanks for dropping by today I hope that you have a wonderful day and that you have enjoyed this video and look at my Graduation Cap Easel Card Gift Card/Money holder.  If you need any of the supplies you can pick them up in my online store 24/7.  If you want the Beautiful Promenade Stamp and Die bundle I would suggest getting them now before they are no longer at the bundle price.  Save that extra 10% on the bundle, it will no longer be a bundle after June 3, 2019.  
Happy Stampin'

Kathy's So Hoppy Together Easel Calendar Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the card that my friend Kathy Jenkins designed.  She gave me one of these cards and one other for my birthday.  She taught her monthly card club how to create this same easel card in February.  We also attend another friends team meeting and each person that comes takes turns doing a project and she shared this with everyone this month.

This is the card that Kathy gave me for my birthday, if you notice in the picture of her card above you will see my birthday circled.  I did my version of her card Wednesday night during my Facebook Live this week.  I's actually a very easy card to create, as you all know I love cards that are easy to create but look very impressive.  She got her little calendars at her local pharmacy.  They actually gave her them after they handed out all they could before the New Year and still had a surplus.  
This is the version that I created with the supplies she brought to the downline meeting Monday night.  Kathy stamped the frog on the little panel at the top while I stamped mine on a additional piece of cardstock and then used the sold out matching Saleabration Coordination framelits and cut it out.  I then popped it up on the card using a couple stampin' Dimensionals.  You can download a PDF tutorial of this card by clicking here.  You can also watch the tutorial that I did on Wednesday by clicking on the video below.  

I loved this card so much that I had to share it with all of you.  I mentioned that Kathy got her calendars at her pharmacy but you can find them online in multiple places.  I know that you can find them on Amazon.  
Thanks for dropping bye today and I hope that you have enjoyed my card today, and that you will give it a try.  You will find a full list of the supplies used in the shopping list below.  You can order in my online store 24/7 by clicking on the shopping tab above or by clicking on the product in the list below.  Remember to use my host code for a special gift with orders of $50.00 (before shipping & taxes).
