Graduation Card

The hardest cards for me to make are Graduation and Mono Chromatic, meaning a card primarily with one color. The reason Graduation cards are difficult for me is because I don't have very many Cricut Cuts or Stamps to choose from. The cap on this card was cut from Wild Card Cricut Cartridge. It is actually a card and there are no layers for it. So the way I cut it is on my Gyspy, and I move it to the edge so only the front of the cap is on the mat. Then I cut it out and trim off the extra paper. So finally I figured out how to make a Graduation Cap with the Cricut Cuts I have.


Supplies & Instructions
Wild Card Cricut Cartridge
Cap - Button #42 - 5.15" (only use 1 side of the cap card)
Scroll - Button #42 icon - 5.15"
Tassel - Button #42 liner - 5.15"
Plain Paper - Core'dination
Pattern Paper - DCWV The Grade School Stack
Color Scroll with Slate color Copic Marker

A bit about me....
I have been working on alot of projects. I sell my cards, notebooks, and paper crafts that I make. Tomorrow is our Church's Father's Day Fest. Its a hug outdoor event with a service, car show, monster trucks, cook-off, live bands, and I am running a craft fair at it. I am so excited to sell projects and cards I have made. What I sell will pay for my day at CHA Chicago in July. So I am praying for a profitable day. I am looking forward to tomorrow so much! Well enough about me, I need to go make some more stuff :)
