MPS Challenge

Over on, Robyn is having a challenge to make a project with our cricuts that include the colors pink, green and black. Since graduation time is upon us, I thought that I would make *drum roll please* a GRADUATION CARD!!!! Hope you like it.

1.  Score and fold a 7″ x 10″ piece of black cardstock in half (fold being on left hand side of card.) Finished size of card is 5″ x 7″.

2.  Using cricut machine, the George & Basic Shapes cartridge, and the Cricut Design Studio, cut a piece of black patterned cardstock to 6-3/4″x4-3/4″, cut another plain piece of  black cardstock to 5-3/4″x3-3/4″, and cut another piece of patterned cardstock to 5-1/2″x3-1/2″.
3.  Layer each piece from largest to smallest as shown in picture, glue in place.

4.  Using the cricut machine, the G&BS cartridge and the CDS, cut a 5-1/4″ circle from green cardstock, then cut a 5″ circle from pink cardstock.

5.  Mat the pink circle with the green circle, glue together.

6.  Offset the circle on the card as shown. Glue in place. Cut off over-hanging pieces of circles to conform with edges of card.

7.  Using the Sans Serif cartridge and CDS, cut “CLASS OF 2010″ from black cardstock at 1/2″ height.

8.  Cut three strips of white cardstock at 3/4″ x 2-1/2”. Glue wording onto strips of paper as shown in picture. Apply strips to card as shown.

9.  Using 1/2″ wide x 1-1/4″ lg green ribbon, fold in half, glue ends together and glue to end of white strips.

10. Cover ends of ribbon with black buttons, adhered with pop-dots. Cover center of buttons with clear rhinestones.
