Exploring Cricut Back to School

Hi! Here in the Rogue Valley, school always starts after Labor Day, so this card is real appropriate for where I used to work!


The cartridge I used was an oldie, but a goodie, Locker Talk. For this card, I used the crayons (button 5, cut at 2") and the phrase (button 4, cut at 4") and cut them out of scraps.  The ribbon is Craft Essentials mini spool from Jo-Anns, and the background papers are unknown.

I also used the flip function on half the crayons so the tips pointed different directions for some visual interest.

Thanks for joining me today and make sure to enter the Back to School Challenge today at Exploring Cricut!

I'm also entering this at the Rose Blossom Garden   School Theme Challenge, Cuttin' & Stampin' Challenge Back to School
