This is a quick Graduation gift with room for cash, a check (too small for a gift card), or a small treat. It uses the retired Matchbox XL Bigz die and a 3″ square card stock piece for the top of the cap.
Nendy’s Creative Corner Club is almost ready to begin! I am editing the club project videos. I have the website almost set up. I am almost finished with the information video. Hopefully everything will be posted by Saturday. I will be out of town next week. The advantage of this business is that I can work from any location as long as I have a computer and Internet service!
I do have posts scheduled so you won’t miss out on anything. Have a great week and make sure to schedule some Stamping Time!
My oldest Son just graduated with his PhD after years of hard work!!!! I made him this Graduation card which looks like his Graduation robes.

Center Step Landscape Template
1. This is a Center Step Landscape Card using a full sheet of 8-1/2″ x 11″ card stock. The Template above uses 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ card stock. I did change the measurements so they were in good proportions for this larger card. The bottom is 1-1/2″ and the side widths are also 1-1/2″. Remember to NOT score across the entire bottom!
2. I made the Sleeve bars by punching 6 Basic Black Word Windows. I then inserted one end into the corner of a square punch to make the point. I measured the Word Window height and cut a strip of the Brushed Gold card stock slightly wider. I freehand cut these points. I tried it with a punch, but I had a lot of problems. (Probably because this card required a lot of thinking to get the design I wanted.)
3. The Pacific Point “collar” is 1″ deep. I marked the center and drew lines on the back of the card stock and then cut them out.
4. Enjoy! I hope you enjoy this Graduation Card which hopefully shows how proud I am of my Son!
