Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday #112 - You Did It!

Welcome to another installment of Fantabulous Cricut's Challenge Me Monday!  This week's challenge celebrates graduates by crafting any graduation-themed project.

For the first time in a long time, I don't know anyone who's graduating -- either from high school or college.  How weird, huh?  So I made a simple project that I would have enjoyed if I were a graduate -- a gift card holder in my high school's colors of black and gold:


Project Details:
  • Papers - cardstock by Recollections
  • Cricut Cuts - gift card holder from Wrap It Up, page 47; cap tag from Wrap It Up, page 67
  • Embossing - gift card holder with The Paper Studio's Intricate Swirls; white background on tag with Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots
  • Other - curling ribbon from stash

I wanted some extra color on both the gift card holder and tag, so I carefully traced both the diploma ribbon and lower background area behind the cap onto gold paper.  I then trimmed, pieced, and adhered behind the cutouts.  I think the third color makes it a little more special.

You can enter your graduation-themed projects all week at Fantabulous Cricut -- come join us!
