Graduation Challenge

Hello everyone!  It's time for a new challenge over at Bitten by the Bug 2!  This week we are challenging you to make something with a graduation theme.  You can make a card, layout, or papercraft using a Cricut cut with the graduation theme in mind.  
For my project I wanted to make a graduation card for a young man, so I wanted to keep it relatively simple.  I used his school colors too.  As soon as I saw the overlay in the Artbooking cartridge, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  This card would be really easy to mass-produce if you have multiple graduates.  
The card base is 5 x 10 folded to be a 5 x 5 card.
The overlay from Artbooking is sized at 4.75 x 4.75 using the Cricut Craftroom.
The numbers are cut using the Cricut Craftroom Basics file available to everyone for free.
I ran them through my cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder.
The striped paper is from Recollections Basic Bold Stack.
Solid cardstocks are Recollections.
The inside contains a white 4.75 x 4.75 mat with a "Congrats" sentiment.

So we hope you will link up your graduation theme projects this week over at Bitten by the Bug 2!

And if you are a lemon lover or know someone who is, I have some lemon treats to share over on my food blog:  Diary of a Recipe Collector.
