Graduation Pull Up Card

Here is the graduation card that I made for my niece.  She is graduating from UMass Lowell's School of Nursing and we are very proud of her accomplishments!  I am not sure about the name of this kind of card, but I saw it somewhere and made a template so I used that.  Sorry that I don't have a link for you.  When you open the flap at the top of the card, the sentiment part of the card pulls up to reveal what it says.  Black and blue are her school colors so I used them for this card.  Here is how the card looks before opening...

The stamps are from Art Impressions.  I've used them so many times!  The graduation cap and sentiment were too big for the space so I stamped them together and then resized them  on the printer.  This is how the card looks opened...

When you open the flap, a little "for you" folder appears where you can tuck a gift card or a check!!  The little pixie stamp is from Memory Box.  I colored her with Copics and paper pieced her dress and hood.  She is holding a magic wand that is star shaped, but I put a little school logo to make it more personal.  Here's a close up...

The sentiment inside the card was made on my computer.  As you lift the flap, the message part of the card moves up with it.  Here is a side view so you can see how the moving part of the card works

If you know the name of this kind of card,I'd really appreciate it if you would leave a comment telling me what it is.  Thanks for stopping by.  



  1. How very wonderful and personalized. She will love it!

  2. What a fabulous and fun graduation card! Your niece must have loved this. The idea of stamping an image then resizing it on the computer is genius. Have a great week Janet. Debra x
