Graduation Money Card

Front view of card, folded.

Graduation season is upon us, and although it is far from a typical year and graduation ceremonies are being canceled or postponed, we still have cards to send out to loved ones. Today, I thought I would share a card that I designed specifically for my niece. 

The styling is a simple M-fold card using a piece of cardstock that is 8.5” wide x 12” long scored on one side at 3” and 9” and then on the backside at 6,” as you can see in the next photo.

M-fold Design

The card was easy to make. I put the file together using Cricut Design Studio. I chose a bold, collegiate looking font to cut out my niece’s name. I also used the same font to weld into a rectangular shape to create the Congrats.  Next, I sliced out 2020 on the banner.  The graphic on the front of the card was available on Cricut Access.

The next panel on the card is sure to be every grad’s favorite part--- the money envelope! After all, they are going off to college. They can either use your gracious gift for their upcoming expenses or maybe they just need one more good shopping splurge before leaving home. 

The money envelope

I am a huge proponent of children’s literature, which means it is hard for me not to include a quote on any graduation card from Dr. Seuss’s book, Oh, The Place You Will Go. I also believe the book makes an excellent graduation gift, with a little something tucked inside, of course!

The graphic on this panel is from an SVG/digital stamp packet I purchased on Etsy.

Here is an overall picture of the card unfolded. As you can see, there are multiple display options, which makes this a fun design. The final panel in the back acts as an easel.

For one last look, you can watch the video to see the card in action. 

Thank you for joining me today. If you like the card or have any questions, please leave a comment! I would love to hear from you. Also, to be helpful, I have included a link to the digital stamp information, along with the name of the fonts I used. 

Have a beautiful day and happy crafting!

This card requires a lot of gluing of the letters. I highly recommend, and personally use, Bearly Art
