Obligatory Graduation Card for Bitten By the Bug's Graduation Challenge
This year's graduates are in a very unique situation. I have a few grads in my life so I created a stack of easy Cricut graduation cards. This first one was made for a very special recipient. I can't wait to send it. I am sure if you are a card maker you are trying to make this years' graduation feel a little extra special since they are missing their traditional ceremonies. So share you fantastic makes with us at Bitten By the Bug 2's Graduation Challenge open until 5/25.
One trick to creating a "stack" of cards is to use all the bits and pieces. I have used the negative cuts from the original card to make an entirely different card. The original is on the right. I used it for placement of the negative pieces prior to assembling it. I placed the negatives on a fun tie dyed paper as well, it just happens to be monochromatic so it looks like a sky. I liked it.
The negative of this card didn't hold up so well with the think letters. I had to trash most of these pieces but kept the hat for another card later. This one has already been mailed. I also made a couple of others not pictured.
