Probably one of the most under-appreciated cartridges in the Cricut lineup, the Paper Dolls Teen Scene cartridge is among my personal favorites. So many cute and fun projects can be made from this one cartridge, so I will share a few of my own:
Paper Doll Teen Scene Cards
To give you an idea of what kind of direction to take, I made a card for a boy and a girl. Both were made in part with the Paper dolls Teen Scene cartridge and both of the teens were cut out at 4 inches. The overall size of the cards is 5 x 5 inches.
The "Happy Graduation" is from the Happy Graduation cartridge at 1.5 inches. This one may be difficult to find on the web, so you might have to make do with another Cricut cartridge. Now that I think of it, you will probably want to include something like "Class of '14". Making your cards with quality cardstock will ensure a better final result.
I went with sort of gender-specific colors, but keep in mind it would be a great idea to choose the school colors of the teen in question.
And the "You Did It" is from the Cake Basics cartridge, (that comes with the Cake Machines) at 4 inches.
Graduation is an important part of each teen's development so help them commemorate it with a beautiful card that they can have as a keepsake forever.
Happy Birthday Card
This card was made using Paper doll Teen Scene and Create a Critter cartridge. The overall size of the card is 4 x 6 inches
The Boy and all his layers are cut out at 5.5 inches and the "Happy Birthday" is from Create a Critter at 1.5 inches.
This is a great cartridge for making all kinds of teen cards and layouts, as you can see.
Thinking of You Card
This card is super easy and quick to make, for one of those days when you need a quick card to cheer up a friend or loved one in a moment of need.
The card is 4 x 6 inches and made using the Paper Dolls Teen Scene Cartridge.
The girl is cut out at 5.5 inches.
With the messaging on this one, I made it easy on myself by simply stamping it on there rather than using a cartridge to create it.
Let me know what you come up with.
