Make a Wish - Birthday Boy Cards

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing a birthday card that is really quick and easy to make! Recently I purchased a Cricut Mystery Box which included five digital cartridges. I have not had time to play with many of the images yet, but I am really liking this image. Solid papers are Recollections and patterned paper is DCWV Floral Stack.

Cricut Cartridges:
Alexis Mattox Quick Cut Cards - Make a Wish card is cut at 10" wide x 13.31"high. You will notice the front of the card has cut out areas and also some pen work areas. I used the Cricut Jade pen. I like the green and pinks together.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards 2 - Sentiment Happy Birthday to You is printed with the Jade pen on a 3.50" x 4" inserted shape. I added a layer of pink paper under the sentiment. This is used inside the card.

A small butterfly is added on the front of the card.

Inside of Card

Also needing a birthday card for my grandson, I decided on another quick cut card using red, white, and blue papers.



Cricut Cartridges:
Alexis Mattox Quick Cut Cards  - Birthday boy is cut 5.5" x 8.50". This size does not include the featured envelope. I used the Cricut Midnight pen for the writing on the front of the card.
Inside of card:
Cricut Font and Basic Shapes - Happy Birthday is cut 4" wide x 1.602" high.
Life's A Party   - Baseball is cut 1.50" wide x 1.48" high. 



Both cards came together pretty quickly. Glueing is what takes the time! I do like the results.

Elephant Card


Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing a card that I made for my granddaughter. She really likes elephants and when I saw this card image, I knew she would like it! Of course, purple works great for her! I used white Recollections paper for the card base. Other papers are from scrap stash. Good way to use some of that growing stack!

This cartridge was in a Cricut March Digital Mystery Box.

Cricut Cartridge:
Rob & Bob Animal Crackers Collection - Card is cut 8.5" wide x 5.25" high in Cricut Design Space.

It is a simple card and qoes together quickly. Hardest part may be choosing the paper colors for the images.
