End of the School Year

The end of the school year has arrived and it is full of changes. My husband asked me to make a card for one of the retirees at his school. Her plan is to go camping with her husband. I used the Going Places new cricut cartridge I got for Mother's Day from Fisher to cut out the campers. I don't often make this size card but was inspired by a card I had seen earlier.

Next I made a card for one of the retirees at my school. I used my cuttlebug to emboss the leaves and to cut out the stamp looking tag. I really liked the background paper that looks like postcards.
The last few cards I made were for the graduates. I coordinated the school colors for each graduate; however, I am only posting one. I used the Locker Talk cricut cartridge to cut out the square card then layered the graduation cap on top. I also cut out the graduation tag with the same cart. I embossed vellum paper with the cuttlebug to layer behind the cap and lined the inside with coordinating card stock. I even cut out coordinating envelopes. This was my first use of the card feature on the cricut. It was super easy.

  1. I love all your cards. This will be exciting to watch them all summer. My favorite is the wedding card, so colorful for a wedding, but it really works.


I enjoy hearing from others. Thank you for taking time to comment.
