From Our Family to Yours Cricut Graduation Card!

Good morning! I hope everyone is having a AWESOME week! I've enjoyed being on Joy's Blog SO much and hate that it's getting close to the end! 

 This week is graduation at our local High School. My cousin's daughter will be graduating and I wanted to make her a card! I used Cricut Essentials for the frame (cut once in kraft and again in pattern paper). The family is from the cartridge Pack Your Bags!  
I used the background stamps in the My Creative Time's, Build A Banner set on their clothes. I used the polka dots for the woman and little girl and chose to go with the stripes for the man and little boy! I used the Stitched oval die and heat embossed a sentiment from the From Our Family to Yours set.
For the inside of my card, I used another one of My Creative Time sets, Follow Your Dreams. I did one sentiment in black and the other one in red. I also used the diploma that comes in the set!

Be sure to come back tomorrow for my final day as guest designer on Joy's Blog! Thanks for looking! 

Hugs, Leanne

  69. A day late and a dollar short, this card would have been perfect for my nephew who just graduated from high school. But there are other nieces and nephews in the family that I would be able to make this card for. It is so cute and depicts the exact sentiments that I would like to convey. Thanks for sharing.

  77. Leanne's cards have been really swell. I especially like the "Rain or Shine" card with the cute little penguin.
    I hope to win the cartridge this week as I've been wanting this one for quite some time.
    Thank you for this opportunity!

  78. I love the family card...their clothes are so dang cute...you are so creative!! My father lives in New Zealand along with the rest of my family and I will not be retuning home this year as I have been going thru chemo. I will surely miss him but will be there in spirit. My husband and I have been unable to have any children so he says he is not a Father, no need to celebrate...but he is the daddy to our two yorkies..so I am going to surprise him. Thanks for the card ideas and the opportunity to win!! My email is gabbylou@live.com and I am already a subscriber to this great blog so I am good to go!
