FCCB #327 - Graduation!

Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #327-Graduation
Make a project about Graduation.

This Weeks Prize-

  Two My Sentiments Exactly sets-Brand New!

Create a project inspired by Graduation

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!

My niece is graduating from High School this year, and I wanted to make her a cool card, so I started off with the star tag from the Fabulous Finds cartridge - free this week. I used some shiny red cardstock and then embossed it with a Tim Holtz shattered glass embossing folder from Sizzix, using a bit of Black Distress Ink to highlight the embossing. I smooshed on some Tattered Angels Black Magic, Iridescent Gold and Bronze Glimmer Mists onto the white cardstock panel that I had used the Write feature and the Cricut Signature Script Font on to spell Graduation. Then, I used a silver gel pen to fill in the spaces of the word.

One of the reasons I love my Cricut Explore is being able to search a PNG file while on my iPad, save the photo and upload it to the Design Space app! I did just this with the cute grad cap image - using Online Web Fonts which has tons of free images available for download. The Happy cut is from Scrapbook and Cards Today, a bonus with the SCT Sampler! I cut it from a striped patterned paper and then covered it with Stickles to give it lots of shimmer.

The 2018 is a free cut file from SpigelMom Scraps. I've used this file several times this year! I added black, white and gold SMS sequins to coordinate with the 'party' theme. (PS You can still use the code KARLA15 to save 15% off at the SMS Shop!)
