School Days Cut Out Card to Make

This simple school days cut out card says it all.  Welcome students and teachers back to school with flair.  Do it in your students school colors like I did for something special.  Red and grey are my high school colors back when we used stone tablets and chisels like my daughter thinks.

Instead of backing with vellum I made this card with cardstock.  And it fits into a A7 envelope because no one has time to make envelopes this time of year.

You will need:
        • Heavy cardstock for the base
        • 2 sided cardstock for the rest of the card
        • Pen
        • Glue
        • Download File
Paper Selection for the School Days Cut Out Card

The paper for this card can be any weight.  I chose to do this card in red and grey, my high school colors.  Go Vikings!  The grey part does not need to be two sided but the red does.  This is backwards from the usual.  However if you find a nice pattern you want to use that is not two sided, the backing on the books will be white and white is still a color too.  So, go for it!

Cutting the School Days Cut Out Card

Cut the card base and the Cricut will do the writing and drawing.  I used a silver gel pen.  Did you know that you can use any pen in your Cricut?  You can see the trick here.  

I used a font called Crown but I can’t remember where I got it so if you change the writing it will revert to Arial  I know it doesn’t fill in but as you can see , it draws beautifully when welded.  And I already did that for you in this card.

Assembling the School Days Cut Out Card
This card is super easy.  First, as always, re crease the center fold on the base card.  Do this carefully as some of the cut outs are close to the fold.  Then glue the the two overlays to the inside of the card.  They are the exact same size as the card so be sure you line them up proberly.
And your School Days Cut Out card is done!  And remember, it fits in an A7 envelope for mailing or hand delivery.  
Back To School In A Pandemic

Children under 12 cannot get vaccinated so they need to be protected.  Here are some helpful things that will help.

  • Wear masks whether your school requires them or not.  Masks are the easiest way to curb the spread of COVID.
  • Encourage teachers, aids, all staff and older children to get vaccinated.
  •  Everyone should stay at least 3 feet apart at all times.
  • Check your child’s temperature every morning.  If it is high have them tested before returning to school.
  • If the student tests positive, let the school know as soon as possible so that they can take measures to protect and contact trace anyone in your child’s class.
Help protect our children!  The life you save may be your child’s.
