My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 170 Thanksgiving

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
Happy Saturday everyone! Yay! Weekend!  
It is time for another fun and inspirational challenge at My Sheri Crafts! Our design team sister Kristi has chosen Ch. 170 Thanksgiving. She asks that we make any type of Thanksgiving project.

Recently I was the random drawn winner at FCCB. The prize was a gift certificate from SVG Attic. That was my first time to select SVG files. I am so happy with the files that I chose. Thank you again SVG Attic for your sponsorship. One of the collections that I chose was SDS Pilgrims Prayer. Today I am sharing the pilgrim hat from that collection. I am pleased with the way this project turned out.

I chose to add some flowers from the Cricut Cartridge Flower Shoppe. I cut 4 varying sizes, 4", 2", 1.5" and 1". I also used some Cricut leaves that were left over from a previous project. Ribbon bow and twine are from my stash. Patterned papers are from scrap stash.

Please visit My Sheri Crafts to see all the pretty cards/projects made by the design team and our guest designer. For more information, please visit the individual blogs. Now it is your turn to play along with us with your Thanksgiving project.

Give Thanks/Thanksgiving

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I am sharing another Thanks/Thanksgiving card today! I love the floral patterned paper and had to create a card with it. I am playing along with the pretty sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches and other favorite challenges. All the patterned papers are K&Company. Guess you can tell by now that is one of my favorite papers! Card is 5" x 6 1/2" cream cardstock.

Cricut Cartridges:
Thanksgiving Table Decor - Give Thanks is cut 5" wide.
Anna's Garden Cards and Embellishments - Mum flower is cut 1.75" wide. I think this flower accents the patterned paper!
Wild Card - Happy Thanksgiving is cut 5" wide. This is used inside the card.
I added two shades of brown buttons and one burgundy button to accent the colors of the papers. The finishing crinkle ribbon bow is from Karen at Little Scrap Pieces. Thanks for my recent win of the pretty ribbons.

A Christmas Candle

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

With the holidays fast approaching, my thoughts have turned to making Christmas cards. This card is 5" x 6 1/2" cream card stock. The pretty patterned papers are K&Company Glad Tidings paper pad. These papers are so pretty that I really did not want to cut it, but I am pleased with the results.

Cricut Cartridges:
Joys of the Season - Candle image is cut 3.25" high. It is embossed with the Cuttlebug Textile folder and pop dotted on the burlap. The pine cone is cut 2" wide.
Cindy Loo - Peace is cut 2" wide.
Winter Wonderland - Merry Christmas is cut 5.5" wide. This is used inside the card.

I added a strip of lace burlap and some pearls to the card. Edges of paper are slightly frayed.

Autumn Pumpkin

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away. Where did this year go? I have been playing with the Cricut Explore for another Thanksgiving card. There are so many neat features on the machine that I have been wanting to try. This card uses the slice/weld features which is one of those new techniques for me. Card is 5" x 6 1/2" cream cardstock. I used papers from a K&Company pad.

Cricut Cartridges:
Pumpkin Carvings - Pumpkin 49 is cut 3.5" high. After adding a basic circle shape on the pumpkin to the size that looked ok, I used the slice feature. This cut the circle out of the pumpkin. I added a black out of the original pumpkin from the brown paper.
Wildcard - The word Autumn was sized to fit inside the open area yet touching in a couple of places so it could be welded to the pumpkin. 
Thanksgiving - Harvest Blessings was cut 4.22" wide x 1.62" high. I used only the word Blessings for this project.
Classroom Oct-Nov - Happy Thanksgiving is cut 4.50" wide. This is used inside the card.
For more interest to the pumpkin, I added Gelly Roll pen doodles and a pretty crinkle ribbon bow from Little Scrap Pieces which I won recently. Thank you so much Karen for the pretty ribbons! Turkey is pop-dotted on a piece of burlap.

Martha Stewart Swirling Lace edge punch is used on the brown paper.
