Create a Friend Cricut Cartridge Graduation Card

I’m Back!

I have purchased a new Cricut Explore and I love it.  My favorite thing about the Cricut Explore is that when you pick your design, Cricut Design Space puts all the “parts” on the screen for you. This makes cutting out your design so easy!  This is a graduation card that I made for a friend’s daughter.

The graduation girl came from “Create a Friend”, but one of the drawbacks of the Cricut Design Space it that when you choose your designs, it doesn’t tell you what cartridge they are from…Boo…Hiss!   I am not completely sure, but I think the words are from “Wild Card”.

These are the layers that are included in the card.  The Cricut Design Space and Cricut Explore will put these on the screen for you, but just in case you haven’t updated to the new machine, I have included a picture.  This may also help you when you are choosing the colors for your cuts.

I used the invitation I received for the front of the card and the inside.  On the left is the inside of the card and on the right is the “cut up” invitation.

I know this is a short post, but I hope to get back in the swing of things soon…

Ticket Stub Shadow Box

My great-niece, Cassidy has attended quite a few concerts in the past few months, so shen  I saw a shadow box on Pinterest for ticket stubs and knew I had to make one for her.  I was not quite as handy as the original pin.  They put a slot in the top of the shadow box so that you could drop the tickets in. I did not have the tools to do that and I am not sure if that would have been as good for Cass, because I am sure she wanted to showcase her favorite ticket stubs.  That would be BLAKE SHELTON!

I did not think to take pictures of each step, but this was an easy project.(less than 30 minutes)  I got the shadow box from IKEA. (my favorite place)  The background is shiny grey chevron scrapbook paper that I purchased at JoAnne’s.  I cut the word “Concerts” from black vinyl with my Cricut.  I welded the letters in the “Cricut Craft Room” (the best place ever and it’s FREE).  I then just put the vinyl on the outside of the glass.  I love the way Cass put her tickets in her box.  If you look closely on the right hand side, you will see that she has a PIT Wrist band.  She attended a Maroon Five Concert and was in the pit!  Yes, that is Adam Levine and she was that close…lucky girl!!
