My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 100 - It's A Wrap

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It is time for another fun and inspiring challenge at My Sheri Crafts! Challenge 100 is It's A Wrap--all about decorating packages, bags, or tags for Christmas! Several months ago, I purchased Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More 2 cartridge. This was the perfect time for me to try out one of the images that inspired me to buy the cartridge. I thought the tea cup would be a wonderful gift/container for friends!
The tea cup and saucer are on page 29.  I cut it at the recommended size of 9"  from a piece of K&Company Yuletide double sided Christmas paper.
Using Cricut Elegant Edges, I cut the snowflake image on page 47 at 2.87" and used it as a doily on the saucer.
Other supplies include Making Memories paper poinsettias that I have had for several years. Inking is Versa Magic Gingerbread.

 More tea cups!

Cricut Elegant Edges - Page 23 - Scallop 1 was used for the doilies on these two tea cups! Papers are from the same K&Company paper pack. I am loving the finished look! Just need to make more!!

A Quilted Christmas - Borders

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I have been playing again with Cricut A Quilted Christmas cartridge. I am loving this cartridge. There are many pretty images and fun features available. Today I am sharing two cards made using the card feature and borders.
The top card is using the poinsettia Border 4 found on page 72. The lower card is using the gifts/packages Border 8 found on page 76. Both cards are cut at 5.5" from red Recollection paper. The liner is cut from a gold shimmer paper from Holiday Time.
I used Cricut Celebrate with Flourish to cut the sentiment Merry Christmas. It is cut at 1.75" from red and 2 different shades of green papers. The shadow is cut from the gold paper.
Simple cards and I like the finished look of the borders!
