Welcome to Glenda's Cards! Thanks for visiting today!
Today I am sharing my first project using the Cricut Ribbons and Rosettes cartridge! Ooh, I like this cartridge! It has so many pretty images. It took me two trips to my closest Michael's (which is over 40 miles away) to be able to find this cartridge...they did not receive any for the Thanksgiving sale. But now I have the cartridge!
My card is 6 1/2" x 5" cut from brown Bazzill cardstock. Designer papers are from the Basic Grey Eva Collection Kit. This beautiful pack was blog candy from My Sheri Crafts and I have been hoarding these gorgeous papers for over a year. Do you ever come across pretty papers that you do not want to cut? That happened with this paper pack. However, I love all the colors and thought it would work perfectly for my project so I cut it!!
Ribbons and Rosettes - Page 25 Doily, Doily Medallion and Medallion Shadow are cut 1.50". I cut the Doily feature 5 times. After gluing the 5 pieces together, the rosette measures 3" wide. The score lines on the doily cut are 3/4" apart so the rosette height measures 3/4" high. The rosette is pretty on the card, but the card will not fit in an envelope. This would have to be a personal delivery!
Nate's ABC's - Page 21- Font 1 feature is cut at .75"
Wild Card - Page 69 Congrats is cut 4.50" I hand cut the brown mat and added green gemstones in each corner.
The pink patterned border is an embellishment paper from the paper pack. I cut it to fit the brown mat. Brown ribbon is from stash!
