FCCB #302: Graduation

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #302-Graduation
Make a project about any kind of Graduation!

This Weeks Sponsor

Dreaming Tree SVG's

The winner will receive a $20 Gift Certificate!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

Here is my project-

My daughter needed a card for her boyfriend's sister who will be graduating in just a couple of weeks so this challenge was perfect timing for me! I opened up Cricut Design Space and created a rectangle in the size I wanted for my top panel. I used the Roly Poly font on the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge and arranged my 2017 across the front. I loaded up my mat and let the Cricut do it's thing lol! Once the 2017 was cut out, I stamped the "Class of", drew some lines, added my ribbon and some acetate to the back. I applied foam tape all around the perimeter and added some gold star confetti as well as some gold and burgundy micro beads. I added a white piece of cardstock to the back to hold everything in and also make the 2017 stand out more.I added my shaker piece onto my cardbase and tied a little bow. I thought it still needed something so I went back to the cricut and cut out a grad cap from the Wrap It Up cartridge and added it to my card front. I added a few stars to the front of my card and voila! Done! lol! I hope she likes it :) 

I will also be entering this card into the graduation challenge going on over at 
Die Cuttin' Diva's (#318)
