3. Class of 2022 Graduation Card SVG
Grab your Cricut machine and our Class year Graduation Card SVG cut file for this easy-to-make card. They fit into a regular business envelope but can be resized. Check back each year and find the Class of ((year)) you need. You can change the colors you see in Cricut Design Space if you want to “see” the end results before you cut. You can continue the graduation celebration by adding a check for $20.23 too! haha
Or this card also works to add in gift cards. TIP: Use the Cricut pens to write a personal message. This one has a graduation cap SVG file included to use in many other decor projects.
Note: (This card would have to be shrunk for the Cricut Joy.)
