Graduation Card Holder Instructions

1. Stamp designs onto white card stock

To get started, gather all of your materials so you have them accessible.

If you have a Cricut machine, you can use the Free Cricut File - Bob Ross - Happy Little Graduation to cut out your stamp images before inking. If you don't have a Cricut machine, place your white card stock onto a craft mat or paper to protect your surface, and stamp all the designs you want to use. Be sure to space out the stamped impressions so that you can cut around them.

Using clear stamps is easy, simply peel your stamp from it backing sheet and place it onto an acrylic stamp block. The photopolymer is slightly tacky, so your stamp can easily stick and be removed from your stamp block.

Second, ink your stamp with the ink pad of your choice. In this project, we are using black archival ink, which is great for card making as it dries quickly and creates crisp outlines perfect for coloring in.

2. Cut cardstock

To create your tri-fold card, select three different papers you would like to use. Cut one to 5x7 and one to 11x6. Follow these measurements and spacing for cutting, folding, and placement. Each color block is a separate piece of paper.

Take your tri-folded 11 x 6 sheet. With the paper folded up, center it on your 5x7 paper and glue the back of the tri-fold sheet (3-inch section) to the 5x7 paper.

Next, with your 3x4 pocket card, cut a half circle out of the top center of the paper to create an easy thumb-pull to slide the gift card or money out of the pocket. Then glue the bottom, left and right edges dowm only.

4. Create the front card design

Cut an additional piece of paper using a different solid color, pattern, or texture. This piece should be cut to 4x6 inches.

5. Stamp to decorate!

Using the Bob Ross stamp, graduation cap, banner, and text stamps - we stamped, embossed (optional), and colored as seen fit.
