Congrats to a Musical Grad!

DSC_6657Happy Monday all!  I can’t believe we are already in May and all that the month of May brings!  Thankfully Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog’s challenge lines up with something I needed to scratch off my to-do list! Yay! It is a Graduation inspired project using at least ONE Cricut cut.

I busted out Everyday Pop-Up Cards and cut the cap at 4 inches.  I then headed over to the Silhouette store and found some musical notes and cut them out at 1 1/2 inches.  My nephew is graduating HS this month and he received the Louie Armstrong Jazz Award for all his accomplishments in music while he was at HS.  This kid can play anything he picks up.  Oh to have that talent!

I found some paper that had music terms from DCWV School Stack and followed the school colors for the cap using Papertreyink.com and DCWV Glitter Stack.  I finished the cap using twine from The Twinery and some CANDi for the tassel and sentiment form My Pink Stamper retired collection with Close to My Heart Slate ink. I hit the notes with gold Sickles!

For the envelope, I just added some of the DCWV paper cutting it down to fit as an insert and punching the top with a MS punch.  I scored the crease and used my ATG to have it stick inside the envelope!  I think it adds a more personal feel to the whole project!

Easy breezy lemon squeezy  yet it has a lot of personal touches.  Now head over and LINK up your Graduation project using at least ONE Cricut project!

Thanks for sharing a piece of “love making personal cards” pie with me!

  6. Great job Arin! Love the music theme to the card. Gotta love Stickles, too! I’m so sad I didn’t buy any of My Pink Stamper Stamps before she retired, she had some great sets!
