Graduation card for a Nephew

Here is my next graduation card for our nephew who is graduating from high school this weekend in Illinois. I quickly finish this card up last night so I could get it in the mail to have any chance of getting it to him this weekend.
The school colors are black and silver. I welded numbers from the Mickey Font cart, using the shadow feature, to a rectangle to get the right edge I wanted. I then cut the numbers again without the shadow feature in silver.

The card measures 5"x7" when folded. I found the subway art saying online and then just printed it on my silver paper from CM. CM has some new papers that have a slight shimmer without it being glitter. Glitter paper just makes my cricut messy.

There are a few more Graduation challenges happening out there. So be sure to visit,  Celebrate the Occasion and Cricut Cutter Room to check out those awesome DT projects and link up a project yourself. And why you are there, check out all the other fantastic projects other bloggers have already linked. 
Come back tomorrow for the Ginger Snap Scrap Memorial Day Blog Hop. I have two Patriotic projects for you. 

Here's How I did it....
Card base made on gypsy with a rectangle from Plantin Schoolbook sized to 7" x 10"
Welded letters/layers from Mickey Font cart
Paper from Bazzill and Creative Memories
Subway art sentiment  found online
Hat dies and sentiment inside card from My Creative Time Here's Lookin' At You stamp set
Twine from Twinery
