PTI MIM $249: Make It With Money

This week it was Lexi Daly's turn to host Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday challenge. She shared several ways to incorporate money gifts into the design of our handmade cards. Since I needed a high school graduation card for a nice young man, I decided to run with it using his school colors. Here's what I came up with so I hope he likes it. Of course, there will also be more money or a gift card to go with this. (We're not just giving him $1, but I like how it lined up the #1 front and center.)

If you look closely under the Congratulations from Swoosh, you can see the numbers 2016 ink blended in gray using the negative die cuts. Congratulations and the Scene It: Celebration consist of three layers for thickness. I popped up the graduation hat using SU Dimensionals and used a removable glue dot to attach the dollar-bill diploma. I'm sure that might just come in handy some day for this high school graduate. : )

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)
Cardstock: Stamper's Select White,True Black, Scarlet Jewel and Black & White All Over
Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black, Scarlet Jewel and Memento Fog
Stamps: For The Graduate, 
Dies: For The Graduate, Modern Numbers, Swoosh, Scene It: Celebration
Other: Sponge Dauber, SU Dimensionals, Maroon ribbon (stash)

I agree, the bill rolled into a diploma was VERY clever!
I also like the Scene It as your focal point! I need to try that!
GREAT card!
