Graduation Card with the Cricut

Hi all, hope your week has been going well.  Ours has been pretty good.  We got off to a good start this week, with meal planning and the like.  I even went to the gym before 9 am!!!  That is a feat around here.  Anyhow, I am bringing you a Graduation card I made for my darling 4 year old.  She is graduating from pre-school tomorrow.  She is so excited because she gets to sing with all of her class mates for the parents.  I can't wait to see if she actually sings once she gets in front of all those people.  So here is the card.

Card Recipe:

  • DCWV textured card stock cut down to an A2 size card
  • White card stock cut to 4" x 5.25" and embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder
  • Ribbon from Michaels
  • Girl cut from Once Upon a Princess at 3"
  • Outfit cut from Once Upon a Princess at 3"
  • Graduation cap made from two shapes in the Cricut Craft Room Basics
  • Tassel made with We R Memory Keepers Watermelon Floss
  • Sentiments from My Pink Stamper Sweet Baby and Family & Friends
Well thats the card.  I love how the tassel came out.  I found out after I made the card that her cap is white.  Had I known I would have customized that.  Oh well.  I am entering this card into two challenges this week.  The Graduation challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut and the Congratulations challenge over at My Craft Spot.   Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a great week.
