BBTB2 - All Shaped Up

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It is time for another fun and inspirational Cricut challenge at BBTB2!. Our talented design team sister Stephanie asked us to make a shaped card. Use any Cricut cartridge and any theme.
I thought this would be a good opportunity for me to play with Damask Decor and try one of the card features with the shaped front! I used Martha Stewart Holidays double-sided papers that were in my scrap stash.
Cricut Cartridges:
Damask Decor - Page 70 - Card feature is cut at 5.5" in  CCR. Layer 1 is the dark green paper under the tree. The completed card measures 5.5" x 3.5". An envelope image is also available but I have not cut it yet.
Christmas/Noel - Seasons Greetings is cut .75" for the inside of the card.
Inside of card!
This is a simple card but I do like the results. Most of my actual time was spent on choosing which double-sided papers to use. But I always take a lot time choosing my papers! Maybe if I would quit buying papers, I would not have too many choices!

Be sure to visit BBTB2 and see all the pretty and creative card shapes by the design team. For more information on the projects, please visit the individual blogs! We love your comments!
We are looking forward to seeing your creations! Remember you must use the Cricut! Just a reminder that our challenges run for only one week so get crafting! One person would be chosen to receive the Project of the Week award!

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate your comments!



  1. Wow Glenda, this card is amazing! I love how you used that paper, I have it and haven't used it yet because I didn't know how I wanted to use it. You always do a fabulous job picking out your papers-I think you need to do a class on how I can do that and make it work for me. lol Such a beautiful card inside and out. Hugs!

  2. Nice shaped card.... I didn't know Damask had those so I will have to check it out.

  6. Glenda, I love this!! I have this paper and would have never thought of something as spectacular as your card for its use. I may have to borrow your idea this Christmas. The Christmas tree is fabulous and the sentiment is perfect!

  7. Beautiful card, Glenda. Love the placement you used on your paper to get the beautiful look when it's opened up. I didn't know that cartridge had a card feature. I thought it was one of those cartridges that I'd never use, but now that I know it has a card feature....

    Hugs, Jeri
