A Cricut Birdcage

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

My card is inspired by a couple of challenges. Most of you know that I use the Cricut on my cards. I enjoy being challenged to use a Cricut image. To use a pretty sketch adds to the fun!
The card measures 5" x 6 1/2" and is white cardstock. The pretty papers are from K&Company Classic K. The mats are hand cut.

Cricut Cartridges:
Bloom - Birdcage is cut 2.50"h. The bird is also with the birdcage image. How do like my red bird!
Cindy Loo - Soar
Flower Shoppe - Flower is cut 1.25"w and smaller one is 1.00"w.
Paper Lace - Just Because is cut 4.00"w. This sentiment is used inside of the card.

Cuttlebug- Birds and Swirls used on the mat under the birdcage for a little interest!

Birthday Cards

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing birthday cards made with the Cricut. I used K&Company double-sided papers for the above shaped card. 
Cricut Cartridges: 
Something to Celebrate - Card base is cut 8.5" wide.
Phrases- make a Wish is cut 3" wide. I am pleased with how well the Explore cuts these phrases at smaller sizes.
Tags, Bags, Boxes, More 2 - Happy Birthday with cake is cut at 3.50" wide. This is used inside of card.
I used pink Stickles inside the flower and a Gelly roll pen for the dashes around the sides of card.

The second card is white cardstock and measures 5" x 6 1/2". Patterned papers are from DCWV Fresh Floral Stack. Solid papers are from my stash.

Cricut Cartridges:
Disney Pooh & Friends - Daisy Frame is cut 4.75" wide. I had no idea this cut was on that cartridge. Using the Explore and being able to see my purchased images brings to my attention there are so many images that I have never cut!
Wild Card - Happy Birthday is cut 2.25" high.
Birthday Bash - Have a Banner Year is cut 5"wide.
