Welcome Fall

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I enjoy making Fall themed cards and I have another card to share with you! Card measures 6 1/2" wide x 5" high cut from Recollections Spice Market paper pack. Patterned paper is DCWV Four Seasons and other papers are from scrap stash!

Cricut Cartridges:
Creative Cards - Rectangle card is cut 6.5" wide x 10" high.
Basic Shapes - I used the square to cut the larger rectangle at 6" wide x 4.5" high from the floral paper. Smaller rectangle is cut 5.5" wide x 4" high from the blue paper. The strip is cut 6.5" wide x .5" high from the stripe paper.
Talk Turkey to Me - Welcome Fall saying is cut 4.545" wide x 3.35" high. This includes the words, acorn, leaves, and a pumpkin. I did not use the pumpkin that is with this image because I wanted a pumpkin with a shadow image. I count extra of the shorter leaves. This cartridge is now available free in Cricut Access, whereas it was a cartridge to buy. I am happy to see all the new cartridges that have been made available lately to Access! 
Thanksgiving Table Decor - Pie Box. I cut only the pumpkin image. Two pumpkins are cut 1.25" wide x 1.15" high and the smaller pumpkin is cut 1" wide x .92" high. 

Pumpkins in corner are pop-dotted on the card.
I love the way this saying turned out on the card! I hope to use the saying on a shirt also.

Hope you enjoy! Thanks for your visits and comments!

Pumpkin Treat Box

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I am still playing with Fall images on my Cricut Explore. Thought I would share this cute little treat box!

Dreaming Tree - Pumpkin Treat box is a free file. Thanks Dreaming Tree for the fun treat box! I cut the box from orange cardstock and the pumpkin from a golden/orange cardstock. The greens are from Cricut cardstock.

Kim Byers - Pie! Oh My! - "For You to Gobble Gobble later" tag is cut 2.473" wide x 3.75" high.
This is a print and cut image that was available free for last week. Glad I found a use for the image!

Cuttlebug:
Divine Swirls folder is used on each of the three pumpkin pieces. The top two pieces are pop-dotted on base of pumpkin.
Polka Dots folder - leaf

Layers of the pumpkin are inked on the edges for a bit of dimension. 

I am pleased with the treat box. Of course, it may just stay in my crafting area since I added some yummy candies!

Thanks for your visits and comments!

Fall Window Box Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

The calendar shows Autumn will soon be here. With the high temperatures we have been having, I am ready. I have been staying inside and playing with the Cricut machine. Today I am sharing my Fall Window Box Card.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Window Box Cartridge  -  Box Card
Photo Play Paper - Autumn Day   - Gold Maple Leaf, Red Maple Leaf, Brown Oak Leaf, Branch, Acorn, Pumpkins, Autumn Breeze Fall Leaves Circle, and Harvest Wheat. These are Print and Cut images.
Walk in My Garden - Sunflowers
It's Fall in the Details  - Large individual maple leaf is cut 3.50" wide. I planned to use the leaves from this cartridge in the box. However, because of the cut out details, the leaf needed to be cut at a larger size. I will use it as a decoration.

Cuttlebug:
Swiss Dots embossing folder is used on the Red Maple Leaves.

Some images are pop-dotted for dimension. Crinkle Ribbon bow is from Karen at Little Scrap Pieces.

Large leaf details

I like the way this Fall Window Box turned out. Hope you enjoy!

Celebrate the Day card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am featuring a Cricut image that was available in one of the Cricut Mystery Digital Boxes. Papers are Cricut cardstock for the two greens. Colorbok brown, Recollections pink, and Craft Smith Wedding Neutrals for the white.

Cricut Cartridge:
Celebrate the Day - "I love us" card is cut 9.311" wide x 4.656" high from the white paper. The card features several layers of papers and a lot of drawing with pen work on the card images.
Cricut pens are Sour Apple, Cactus Pink, Copper Metallic, and Tawny.

I like the way this turned out with the pen work! Not much work--keep the right paper and right color of pen and let the Cricut do its magic!

Thank you for your visits and comments!
