Bitten by the Bug 2 – Graduation

Today we start a new challenge on Bittten by the Bug 2 using graduation as the theme.  Graduations are certainly going to be a lot different in 2020 so my card is a little different too.

My great-nephew is graduating from high school and a vocational school this year after taking construction.  He has been accepted into an apprenticeship at the carpenter’s union, so this tool box card from SVG cuts seemed appropriate.  It is from the Father’s Day Box Card collection found here.  I added a mortar board in his school colors to the note pad on the front from Decorate, Celebrate. The writing is Modern Calligraphy.  I love writing with my Cricut because it always looks good and I can size it just right to fit.  I used basic cardstock in my stash along with metallic cardstock from DCWV.  I also used a couple of different brads that look like metal fasteners and screws.

Don’t forget to make something for that special graduate because they will need it more than ever this year.  Link up your project made with your Cricut to our challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2 here.
