My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 191 Christmas

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

We are back with another fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts! Ch. 191 is Christmas. Design team sister Sue asked us to make a Christmas card or project with lots of elements--at least 3 different elements. Wow, can you believe that in 3 more months it will be Christmas Eve! Where has time gone! I was happy to see this challenge so I could get a head start with making Christmas cards!

My card begins with a 4" x 12" piece of Recollections red cardstock. When folded the card measures 4" x 6". Other papers are from my scrap stash.

I chose to use a surprise element for this card. Browsing through blogs and YouTube, I saw the Pop Up Panel Cards and had to give it a try. You can see the blog post and video for the card style made by Joy at Obsessed with Scrapbooking. I love the pop up element of the card. Thanks Joy for the measurements and Cricut Design Space file to make this card style!

Cricut Cartridges:
Christmas/Noel - Swirl Tree is cut 4.2" high. It is pop-dotted on the red mat.

Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder is used on the red mat on front of card. I added a Merry Christmas sticker and a 3D holly embellishment on front of the card. These have been in my stash supplies for years..sure do need to use of a lot of that stuff.

 Inside the card.

Cricut Anna's Fancy Lettering -Noel is cut using the Hannah Font. 
Using Insert Shape in Cricut Design Space, the white square is cut 3".
Anna's Christmas Cards and Embellishments - Joys of the Season is printed on the white square.

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It is time for another fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts! I am the hostess for this challenge and have chosen Ch. 190 - Travel. All you have to do is add a way of travel on your card or project. This can be a car/truck, bicycle, airplane, or any means of transportation. 

I enjoy using my Cricut Explore. When I first saw this image, I knew that I would have to try it!

Cricut Cartridges:
Crazy Cute Cards - Station Wagon Christmas Card is cut at 21.26" x 10.29". This cartridge is available in Cricut Access. I used the  recommended size for the image found on the handbook page. This size does include the envelope. Handbook states the Finished Card height is 3". The actual height is 4 1/2" which includes the attached tree. Finished envelope measures 4 3/4" x 9 5/8". Papers are from my stash stack.   
Wild Card - Merry Christmas is cut 3" wide x 1.22" high. This is used inside the card. I placed the words at a lower position on the card so they are not seen through the open part of the windows.
