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…

Happy Birthday Dave

The newest member of our family recently had a birthday.  He just bought a Harley this summer, so I thought he might enjoy this card.  It was made with my Cricut. I used the “Going Places” and “Graphically Speaking” Cricut cartridges.  If you would like to order paper products to make this card you can click here.
