Begin with a card base that measures 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4".
Run a piece of basic black card stock that measures 4 7/8" x 2 5/8" through the Lucky Stars embossing folder and then add that to a piece of whisper white cardstock that measures 5" x 2 3/4" and add to the top of the card.
Cut out the graduating class year numbers in gold foil, on the 1 stamp a greeting (or skip the 1 and roll up money and attach it in it's place). Add the numbers to the black cardstock using dimensionals.
Stamp the greeting along the right bottom in black ink and then punch out a 1 1/4" square, add the balloon ribbon from the balloon framelits and then add to the front of the card with dimensionals.
