Anna Griffin Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

My card is inspired by a beautiful Anna Griffin card featured in Cricut Design Space Make It Now. It is called Anna Griffin Garden Butterfly Card Layout. My card is cut from Colorbok Pearlescent Paper Pack. All the papers (excluding the blue under the flowers) are pearlescent, but my camera did not do justice to those papers. 

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Garden Cards and Embellishments-- Card is 5" x 7". I used the Make It Now feature. My Cricut had trouble cutting the butterfly that is shown with the card---kept tearing the papers. After a few attempts, I chose another butterfly from the same cartridge. Flowers and ferns are also from this cartridge.
Sophisticated Soiree - Chain Label for sentiment. Only one label is cut using the Make It Now instructions. I cut two labels using different colors-- ivory is 3.26" wide and the green is cut 3.50" w.
Words that are shown on front of the featured card are not given in the cuts. I chose to use Life is a Journey, and love is what makes that journey worthwhile. The sentiment was printed on the label using the midnight pen.

Flowers, butterfly and label are pop-dotted on card. An ivory crinkle ribbon bow is added to complete the card. My card does not look like the featured card, but I am pleased with the results. Each of us add our own personal touch!

I am sharing this at the following challenges:

Thank you for your visits and comments! Happy Crafting!


  1. Wow Glenda! Another stunning card! I am loving the verses you are writing on the papers with your Cricut. The papers are so pretty, but hard to capture the pearl finish I'm sure. Hugs, Brenda

  2. Another beauty, Glenda. I love the pearlescent papers too and mine do not photograph well either. Lovely colors too.

  3. That card is beautiful. Thanks for joining us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week.


  4. Your card is so gorgeous! I love the inspiration from Design Space :) Thanks so much for joining us at FCCB!
