Vintage Florals Iris

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
Today I am sharing a card made using Anna Griffin products! Card measures 5" x 7" and is cut from white Bazzill card stock. Other papers are Recollections.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Vintage Florals - I enjoy playing with these pretty floral images from the digital print and cut cartridge. Iris is cut 2.5" wide x 3.62" high. 
Anna's Splendid Soiree - Lace Invitation is cut 4.75" wide x 6.64" high. This includes the purple mat, yellow doily, and white mat. Rather than using these images as an invitation, I chose to use it as the front of the card. The doily image has slots on each inside corner for the white mat to slide in. I eliminated those slots. 
Anna's Flourish Cards and Embellishments - The sentiment "Wishing you all the best" is written with the Cricut Midnight pen on the white mat.
Anna's Lace Cards and Embellishments - The butterfly is cut 1.45" wide x 1.65" high.

For added details, I added a strip of lace and a yellow crinkle ribbon bow.
I am happy with the finished card! Hope you enjoy!

Die Cuttin' Divas - Ch. 309 3D Bags, Purses, or Boxes

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Happy Spring everyone! I do enjoy Spring and all the pretty blooming flowers. 
Today is time again for another fun challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas. Ch. 309 is 3D Bags, Purses, and Boxes. I chose to make a bag with some pretty Spring color paper. The paper pad is Craft Smith Tea Party that was bought a few years back.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Sophisticated Soiree - Flourish Treat Bag is cut 11" wide x 7.05" high. I love the pretty flourish top of the bag!

Although I have Cricut rosette flower images, I chose to hand cut this rosette with my Fiskars cutting board. The 12" inch strip of paper was cut at 1 1/4" wide and folded at each 1/4 inch. I added a pretty pink brad from The Paper Studio Spare Parts. Rosette is pop-dotted on the bag.  I added a little pink tissue paper. A perfect little box for candy and/or small gift for my special friend.

Heart Bee Birthday Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I am sharing a birthday card for a friend. The card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" white cardstock. Patterned paper is K&Company Valentine paper that was left over from Valentine projects. I thought the paper would work great for a young lady's birthday.

Miss Kate's Cuttables - Heart Bee is cut 2.94 wide" x 2.75" high. This was a recent free image. It works great with my Cricut Explore and Design Space. Thanks for the cute freebie.

Cricut Cartridges: 
Just Because  - Bee Happy is cut 2.2" wide x 1.5" high.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards 2 - Happy birthday to you is written with the Cricut Midnight pen on an inserted 3.75" wide x 3.12" rectangle shape. This is used inside the card.
Cuttlebug Divine Swirls folder is used on the white mat under the cute bee.

Vintage Florals

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
Birds are singing and flowers are blooming in my area, but we are having cold days this week. Last week, I thought Spring was already here. Oh well, I can sit in my craft room and play with the Cricut. Needing birthday cards, I chose to feature pretty Spring flowers and colors.

My card is 4 1/2" x 5 1/2" and is white cardstock. Pretty papers are K&Company. I am playing with Mary's Sketch 16 at CARDZ TV.

Cricut Cartridges:
Baby Steps - Scalloped oval is cut 3.50" wide x 2.50" high from white cardstock and the green paper. I rotated the ovals to use the 3.50" for the height on my card. Green oval is pop-dotted on card.
Anna Griffin's Vintage Florals - Carolina 2 is cut 1.73" wide x 2.4" high. I inked the edges of the white flower with a pink ink for a little more detail.
Cricut Wild Card - Celebrate is cut 2.6" wide x .75" high.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards 2 - Sentiment Happy Birthday to you is written with the Cricut Midnight pen on an inserted 3.75" x 4" rectangle. This is used inside the card.

Cuttlebug Cherry Blossom folder is used on the white oval. It is also inked with the pink ink.
Green DMC Memory thread bow, white Recollection pearls, and a Michael's white adhesive trim add the finishing touches to the card.
