Grad 2014 Card

Created this Graduation Card for my daughter who will graduate next year, 2014. Her college colors are purple & green. She likes Owls.

I was inspired by a Grad Card I posted on my Pinterest Board by Southern Cricut Lady that you can see when you click here.

Used Wild Card Cricut cartridge to make the Grad Hat, Tassel, Class of & 2014. Cartridge Grad Hat image is for a card on its own but like the Pinterest card I wanted also to have the Grad Hat open up and put the Graduating Class Year inside the Grad Hat.

Cricut cartridge: Wild Card 5" Grad Hat, Tassel, Class of, 2" 2014
embossing: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder
