Bow Basket

 Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I have seen so many pretty versions of this 3D basket. With Christmas still on my mind, I chose to make a Christmas themed basket. Perfect size for candy, cookies, or small gifts.

The Bow Basket is part of Dreaming Tree SVG Give a Gift Bundle that I purchased recently. I knew when I saw the basket, it would be my first project to do from the set. Finished size measures 3" H x 7" W x 3.5"D. I used the Paper Studio Yuletide Joy Paper pad. Love mixing the pretty patterned and plaid papers together.

Anna Griffin Regal Braid  embossing folder on the red patterned paper on sides of the basket. I used the border folder from the same set to emboss the handle.

Paper Studio Spare Parts Brads - The two brads have Christmas trees on then.

I enjoyed making this basket! With a change of papers, the basket can be used for many occasions. Thanks for your views and comments!

Christmas Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Sharing another Christmas in July card! Now I have two cards completed!
Card measures 5" x 7" cut from white Colorbok cardstock. Patterned paper is from the Paper Studio There's No Place Like Home for the Holidays. Gold is Cricut Foil Poster Board--my first try with this and my Cricut cut it fine! What a shine! Red and green papers are Recollections.

Cricut Cartridges:
Dreaming Tree Christmas Collection - Good Tidings Card. I cut an additional layer from the plaid paper to use on the front of card.
Anna's Christmas Cards & Embellishments- Merry Christmas is written on the white mat with the Cricut Midnight pen. This is used inside the card.
Inside the card.

Cuttlebug Embossing Folders:
Swiss Dots - Ornament and bow
Frills border - Strip

For a touch of sparkle, I added Stickles Lime Green to tips of holly and Christmas Red to berries. Photo does not show that well. Lots of pop dots added to holly leaves.

Hope you enjoy! Thanks for your visits and comments!

Christmas in July!

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Hallmark Christmas Movies in July have me thinking of the upcoming Christmas season! Time to get busy on Christmas cards! Good way to beat these hot Summer days we are having...just stay in my craftroom!

Cricut Cartridges:
Dreaming Tree Christmas Collection - Christmas Village Cascade Card. I am loving these images from Dreaming Tree!
Cricut Text - Brandon  - Words "Merry Christmas" written with the Cricut Midnight pen.

Decorated Tree

Recollection gemstones used on the tree. I got carried away with decorating the tree and you cannot see all of it on the card! Papers are from my stash. Glitter paper is used for the tree line.  Completed card measures about 9" high x 5" wide when finished. I will use my card as decoration.

Thanks for your visits and comments!

Summer Shirt

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I am sharing another T-shirt made with the Cricut Explore and Cricut Easy Press. I noticed this cute image in Cricut Design Space and wanted to try it. 

Cricut Cartridges:
Hot Summer Days -- This cartridge is available with Cricut Access. Summer Adventures is cut 9" wide x 7.035" high. It is ironed on the white shirt. I chose the colors according to my likes!

I enjoy working with vinyl and the Easy Press. Maybe I will feel more comfortable as I work with it more!

Patriotic Shirt

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I have been playing with my Cricut, EasyPress, and vinyl again!  Time for a patriotic shirt!

Cricut Cartridges:
Stand and Salute - USA   I used two layers, one red and one navy vinyl.
All American - Large Heart cut from navy. Three smaller hearts cut from the red vinyl.
Font - Lipstick Lettering -- Word the.

I sized the grouped image at 8.50" wide x 8.242 high.

I enjoyed working with different cartridges and fonts to make this design. Now, more of my family wants a shirt like this!

Hope you enjoy!
