Valentine Window Box Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing a Valentine Box Card that was made using my new Cricut Maker! Yes, I finally decided to purchase the Maker and I am pleased with the machine so far. This makes my fourth purchased Cricut machine, but I thought it was time to upgrade from the original Cricut Explore to the Maker.

I used images from several Anna Griffin cartridges which included cut images, print and cut images, Cricut pen draw work and the new Cricut Scoring Wheel. Patterened paper is Anna Griffin.

Cricut Cartridges:

Anna's Window Box Cards - Box card is cut 10.406" wide x 8.753" high using Recollections red card stock. The single rose on stem is print and cut at 3" wide. Double roses are print and cut.

Celebrate the Day  -  I received the digital cartridge in a purchased Cricut Digital Mystery Box some time back. I noticed that the cartridge is now available in Cricut Access.
