'Tis The Season

Christmas?? no!!! 'Tis the Season for Graduations.
Keeping up with the Red Hot Stamper 6x6 Challenge I made these cards and money holders (money holder inspired by Julie Brancart) I used the same color scheme as Julie because I loved it so much, using the GOING PLACES DESIGNER SERIES PAPER STACK (6x6)
I started by measuring this purchased money holder from way back when
 Cut my card stock (Sahara Sand) at 8x8-3/8.  With the 8-3/8 at the top of your score plate, score 2-3/4 and 5-5/8.  turn your card stock 90ยบ and score 3/4" from each side.
 I rounded the corners using my ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD, but you could also use the PROJECT LIFE CORNER ROUNDER
The measurements for your other pieces are as follows:
Basic Black 2-1/2 x 6-1/4 (you need 2 of these)
Designer Paper 2-1/4 x 6 (you need 2 of these)
The 2 designs are from 2 different sheets of 6x6 and after cutting the pieces I needed I ended up being able to make 2 Money Holders and 2 regular 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 cards using the strip that was left over.  I cut it down to 1-3/4 x 5-1/4 So all I threw away was a teeny tiny smidge of those papers.
Not only so I have my fair share of Graduation Open Houses to go to, I get requests from my sister for all the Open Houses that she will be going to.
I used the (retired) stamp set WORD PLAY and the small directional stamp is from THE OPEN SEA which you can still purchase through May 31st - but then it will be gone FOREVER.  The front of the Money Holder stamp is from BYOP (which stand for Buy Your Own Present!)
Thanks for stopping by!
