It's Cassie, here! I've been on a kick of showing y'all the different ways that I give gift cards. I guess that just goes to show you that I really never know what exactly to get people, so I go with the trusty gift card :} Well, how about another one?! This time it's for the grad, but can obviously be adapted to any occasion.
Go grab a few supplies!

I printed out 10 pencils from the Pencil Talk digital stamp onto Cottonball White Cardstock without adjusting the size of the pencils. I put them as close as I could to each other without overlapping them as you can see. I started by coloring the tips with E49, and then just below that with E50 for the wood.
I printed one extra pencil with the 'Congrats' sentiment on it. I colored it a bit differently than the other pencils in that I had the light source coming from one side. To darken up the bottom layer of the yellow on the pencil, I just went over it with the E53.
Now onto the inside for a bit :) I cut a piece of Night Eclipse cardstock to the size of 4 1/4 x 3. It was then scored at 1/2", 1 1/2", and 2 1/2" as shown above.
I printed out the pencil scribble onto the Cottonball White cardstock and then cut it to fit the outside of the card, knowing that my pencils would overlap a bit.
Now go forth and be crafty!
