Do you know someone who is graduating from college or high school? Make them a graduation card using your Cricut.
The great part about this card is it only takes two pieces of card stock and you can make it in their school colors. This is a simple card, even a beginner crafter can make for their graduate.

The next screen will be where you will select the type of card stock you are using. If you do not see the material in your material favorites, click on "browse all materials" to find the weight of cardstock that you are using. For example the red Cardstock I used is medium weight, you will need to select "Medium Weight"..
Once you have Design Space set, you are now ready to prepare your mat. I used a brayer when placing the Cardstock on the mat, this helps in making sure that the paper is adhered to the mat and will help in keeping the paper from ripping or moving when it is being cut.
