Father's Day Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today's post features a Father's Day card. Recently I made cards for the oldest and youngest mothers at my church, so I am making cards for the dads. Card is 4 1/4" wide x 5 1/2" high. I used Recollections cardstock and patterned paper. I think the anchor is a good choice for a masculine card. While working on this card, I was inspired by the hymn "In Times Like These". We all need to be sure our anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!

Cricut Cartridges:
Creative Holiday Cards - Anchor Card is cut 8.5" wide x 5.5" high from white cardstock.
Anna's Flourish Cards & Embelishments - Perfect Day Sentiment is written on the front of card using the Cricut midnight pen. I cut a 3 3/4" x 3 7/8" piece of the patterned paper for the background of the card. The red circle mat is pop-dotted on the card.
Father's Day Fan Club - Happy Father's Day is cut 3.353" wide x 1.718" high. This is placed inside the card.

Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder is used on the red circle mat for more dimension.

Summer Shirts

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I wanted to decorate some T-Shirts for family members using my Cricut Explore and Cricut EasyPress. I decided that to get more experienced with these shirt projects, I needed to try more! 

Cricut Cartridge:
SVGLOVE  - Summer Forever cartridge was in a recent Cricut Digital Mystery Box. 
Summer Sweet Summer image was cut 9.821" wide x 8.585" high and applied on the lime green shirt.
Vitamin Sea image was cut 9" wide x 5.613" high and applied on the white shirt.

Second shirt
I am pleased with the results. I think the hardest part of this project was trying to get a good photo! Now if I could only decide which image to use on a shirt for myself!

Butterfly Box

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Do you like butterflies! When I saw this pretty Dreaming Tree project, I had to download the free SVG and make it right away!

Patterned papers are from K&Company Classic K 12 x 12 Paper pad. I love the pretty double-sided papers in this pack. Cricut Pearl Paper is used for the top of the box. This cut great on my Cricut machine and has a pretty shimmer.

Cricut Font Chloe - Love is written on the label with the Cricut Very Berry pen.

The little box will be good for a gift or candies. Also, I think a battery operated tea light will be pretty in it. Sorry, my photo did not show the flickering light.


I really like how this turned out! Thank you Dreaming Tree for the beautiful SVG.

Thanks your visits and comments!

Card for a Red Hat Lady

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
Time to have a little fun with Red and Purple! I wanted to make a card for a Red Hat Lady. The pretty dark purple paper reverses to a light purple and works well for me. It is from The Paper Company and I purchased it a long time ago at a clearance price. Red paper is Recollections.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Gracious Giftables - Teapot Holder is cut 17.73" wide x 10.6" high. This is the size recommended on Anna's blog which also includes a gift card image for the inside and a band to go around the card. This makes a large teapot, about 7 3/4" wide. I will size down the teapot image when I make it again. Red Roses are print and cut...size is 3.25" wide. I cut two with one image on flip. I did not record the size of the smaller roses used inside the card.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards 2 --Tag is cut 1.837" wide x 3"high.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards -- Happy Birthday Friend is written with the Cricut Midnight pen on the above mentioned tag.
Anna's Elegant Embellishments 2 -- Tag is cut 4.5" wide x 3.065" high. This is used inside the card.
Anna's Flourish Cards and Embellishments - Special Day Sentiment is written with the Midnight pen on inside tag.
I cut two lid images to have one for the backside. I used Cuttlebug Anna Griffin Woven Diamonds folder for the embossing.
Red Crinkle Ribbon from DL.ART is used to tie the sentiment tag on the teapot. Thanks Diana for the pretty ribbons!

Flowers in Vase

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I have been playing with paper again! I wanted to try one of the projects that I recently purchased.
Patterned papers are K&Company, Colorbok white, Recollections yellow, and Cricut for the greens.

Cricut Cartridges:
Dreaming Tree Springtime Gifts - This was available in the Cricut March Mystery Box. I am happy to see some of Dreaming Tree SVGs in Cricut Design Space.
Butterfly Flower and Vase is cut 39.75" wide x 20.842" high. This is the size that comes into Cricut Design Space when the image is loaded. Score marks are already attached which makes it easy to work with the images.

Finished size of project is 14"H x 4"W x 4" D.  I used  a bit of inking and added pearls. I received the white crinkle ribbon from Diana at DL.ART from one of her contests. Thank you Diana!

I love the way this turned out! Hope you enjoy!
