Cricut Graduation Cards 2017

Here in Northern California graduation for high school and college is near the end of May and into June, much later than other parts of the country.  It's earlier than it used to be - we used to go to graduation ceremonies in mid-June.   I have 3 graduation parties coming up, and today I am sharing two of the cards I made.

The male-inspired card is for a nephew that is graduating from Chico State with a major in Finance.  I thought the suit cut was apropos.   It comes from the Suburbia cartridge.  You can't see it but I added Glossy Accents to the hat and tie, and Stickles to the handkerchief in the suit pocket and on the wording.

The girl card is for a niece that is graduating high school.  The orange and black are school colors.  I added Stickles to make the word shine.  It turned out really nice, and I'll probably use this file again.  I used print and cut for the girl grad, just makes it less time consuming.

Entering these cards in the following challenges:
Fantabulous Cricut Challenges - #302 Graduation
Hiding in My Craftroom - #302 Any Holiday
DL Art - Thankful Thursday - #205 Boys and or Men

  2. Our high school graduations are still mid-June around here- the kids still have more than two weeks of school left! Your cards are very nice- you have inspired me to try the print and cut feature. I have never used it!
    Thanks for joining the FCCB Challenge this week!
