The Circle’s Cricut Craft Room Challenge – Graduation Card for Nephew

It’s the graduation season here so I  am combining the need for cards with some Cricut Circle Challenges that are less constrained by time.  This card is for my nephew who graduates in a few weeks with a bachelor’s degree in biology

This challenge was to exclusively use Cricut Craft Room (CCR)  digital cartridges (with at least 3 image cuts).   I used the Cricut Craft Room Basics (included with the free CCR program),  Chemistry Icons, and Party Picks and Pennants digital cartridges.   If you haven’t tried CCR yet, you should!

The pennants (flag7_s) were cut at 3.6 inches in height.  The  0.8 inch “U” and “R”,  the 0.5″ inch “o”, and 0.7 inch “f” are from Cricut Craft Room Basics.  The microscope was cut at 4.5 inches and the beaker at 2 inches. The beaker has the requisite dose of Diamond Glaze and of course, there is a good amount of Copic coloring on many of the elements.

I used my Spellbinders Label 22 for the sentiment labels.  In keeping the scientific theme, I printed the periodic table on a piece of white cardstock before cutting the background label.  Overall, the card measures 5.25 x 8.25 inches.

And for those of you who may still be on the fence regarding Papertrey Ink, I can’t recommend their cardstock strongly enough (it’s the black frame on this card) as it offers great stability.  This card will need to be mailed – but I am confident it will arrive in good condition if I use a Priority Mail envelope (after I wrap in it plastic to ensure any rain does not adversely affect it).
