Celebrate the Occasion - Challenge #12: Graduation

Hello everyone,

Its Teacher's Appreciation Week and I would love to thank all the wonderful teacher I have found in the craft world. So many of you share your craft and techniques so willing, I am a better crafter for it. So thank you all Teachers!

Its time for a new challenge at Celebrate the Occasion. This week Design Team 2 are challenged to create a project for a graduate.

I decided to try my first Easel card which I adapted to be money/ gift holder (just in case you don't know what to buy). I love the Easel card effect and I just love how easy they are to make! I expect that you will see a lot more of these cards from me. This card measures 5.5 X 4.25 when closed.

What was used:
Cricut A Child's Year (Hat had 2.5 inches, in black trip tassel, hide inner contours on Gypsy and cut in gold).
Cricut Birthday Bash (Font for GRAD cut at 0.95 inch)
Cricut Wild Card (Banner Frame cut at 8.8 inches
Cuttlebug Seeing Spots Embossing Folder
DCWV Gold Stag Star Paper
DCWV Black Congratulations Paper
Recollections Cardstock
Bazzill Gold Cardstock
Colorbox Charcoal Ink
Gold Ink

Visit Celebrate the Occasion and see the inspiring projects the design team have made. Then create a card, layout or project to wow us and post by Sunday, May 8th, 11:59pm (EST).

Happy Scrapping!
