Challenge Me Monday #112

This week's Fantabulous Cricut Challenge was to create something for your Graduate.  My oldest graduated from college a couple weeks ago and we're celebrating this weekend.  My good friend and fellow consultant, Donna (check out her blog here), showed us this technique over the weekend with a flower card (that is beautiful...hopefully she's posted it on her blog).  I was trying to decide what to do for the card and this popped in my head... not as beautiful, but pretty cool.  The front of the card is cut along the bottom of the hat line which allows the sentiments and patterned paper to show along the bottom of the inside.  I used Art Philosophy to cut the Frame and the U R.  The stamp sets I used were You Did It and You Are.  Visit the Fantabulous Cricut Blog and see all the great posts to get inspired.

Great idea on a variation of the card we made! Now that I see what you've done, I will be thinking of other possibilities!
