Winterscape Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I was happy to see the Cricut cartridges that came in the July Digital Mystery Box. Did you know that Dreaming Tree has a Christmas Collection available through Cricut? Wow! I just had to purchase it!

This is my first project using the Christmas Collection. It is called Winterscape Card. When the project was brought into Cricut Design Space, I left the size as it was - 34.381" wide x 11" high which includes an envelope. I did not cut the envelope at this time. My finished box is approximately 6 1/4" wide x 10 inches high. The size shown on the Dreaming Tree website is 9.5"H x 6"W x 1.75"D.  I plan to add a battery operated light inside the box and use as a Christmas decoration.

Hope you enjoy! Cricut may have more Mystery boxes available.

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It is time for another fun challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas! Ch. 326 is Sci Fi (Aliens, UFO, Space).  I had no idea what I would make until I found this cute spaceship image in Cricut Design Space. I am using papers from the stash.

Cricut Cartridges:

Just a simple card, but I think it turned out cute! I have no need for this card at present time, but Happy Birthday or any appropriate sentiment can be added on the black section. Great for a younger guy or maybe an older guy!

Fantastic Flip Cards - 3

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I am back today to share my third card in the Fantastic Flip Cards series. I enjoy playing with this Cricut cartridge.The pretty double-sided paper is from K&Company. Solid green paper is Colorbok Pearlescent. The camera did not catch the shimmer paper very well, but it does look pretty on the card. When folded the card measures approximately 5" x 7". Above photo shows the card standing with the flap slightly opened.

Cricut Cartridge:
Anna Griffin Fantastic Flip Cards - Card #M165798A is cut 11.092" wide x 6.998" high. This size is without the included envelope.
Roses are print and cut images. I love the flowers in this cartridge. Larger white rose is cut 2.75" wide x 3.50" high. Smaller white rose is cut 1.75" wide x 1.768" high. I cut two roses of each size using the flip feature for one of the roses. I backed each rose with the flipped rose image. The larger rose is pop-dotted on the card.
Green oblong label is cut 1.933 wide x 4.173" high. White label is cut 2.023" wide 4. 367" high. The sentiment "Happy Birthday" is written on the green label using the Cricut midnight pen.
Using Insert Shapes, the white rectangle is cut 2.75" wide x 3.50" high. Sentiment " Sending You Heartfelt Wishes" is also written with the black pen.
I did not record the size of the corner images, but it measures approximately 1.50" x 1.50".
