CWC Challenge 34: Father's Day: Design Team Project

It's Wednesday and time for a new challenge at Cooking with Cricut.  This week, we are challenging you to make a Father's Day project.  Be sure to stop by the blog to check out all of the design team projects and enter the challenge here: http://www.cookingwithcricut.com/.

For my project, I had already made my father's gift, so I decided to work on something for my grandfather.  I bought a plain coffee mug and used the Car Decals and Batman Cartridge to cut designs for the front and back of the mug out of black vinyl.  I wanted to have a matching card, so I used Car Decals and Batman again with the Wild Card Cartridge for my base.  My grandfather loves butterfingers, so I filled the cup up with some for him.  He is a big coffee drinker also, so I think he will get a lot of use out of this gift.

 Here is the back of the mug.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
