Shamrock Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

With all the pretty Make It Now projects available in Cricut Design Space, I find it hard to decide which one to try first. With St. Patrick's Day fast approaching this week and needing one more card,  I chose to use this pretty Shamrock Card. Card measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and is cut from white card stock. Patterned papers are DCWV Fresh Floral Stack.

Cricut Cartridges:
Make It Now Shamrock Card-- I followed the instructions given for the cutting and some of the assembly. Two shamrocks are cut. Edges of the top shamrock are slightly curled inward and then it is placed on the second shamrock using foam squares. The button is added with DMC embroidery thread and then I made a small bow. I made a goof with one of the shamrocks and cut two more. I added the extra one inside the card.
Family Album - Wanting to add a bit more interest to the top of card and make it my card, I added the small pendants and clover from the Lucky Scrapbook Page. After ungrouping the images, the pendants were cut at 1.50" wide x 1.33"high. Note: These images are not included with the Make It Now instructions.
Designer's Calendar - St. Patrick's Day is cut 3" wide. This is used inside the card!

I cut the plaid background paper at 5 3/8" x 4 1/8" and the white background paper at 5 1/8" x 3 7/8". 
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder is used on the white paper.

Lattice Box

Welcome to Glenda's Cards! 

I am sharing a little lattice box/basket that I am just now able to post. Past few days around here have been rather busy! I missed a couple of challenges that I was playing along with, but that happens sometimes!

Cricut Cartridges: 
Tags, Bags, Boxes & More2 - Lattice box is cut 11.50" wide x 5.48" high from white Colorbok card stock.
Spring Fling - Flower is cut 3" wide using pink and green papers. Sweet Spring is cut 2" wide from the same papers. I cut two of each image so each side of the box has an image. Cricut Midnight pen was used for the drawing.

The two crinkle ribbon bows are from Karen at Little Scrap Pieces. Thanks Karen for the pretty ribbons! I added some iridescent shreds to the inside of box and some peppermint candy. Looks like someone has been eating my candy!

I am using the little box for Spring now but with Easter also in the month of March, I can add Easter candy for a different treat. I will have a dual purpose box with this little project!

With a Thankful Heart

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

This past week we were drenched with heavy rains -  11.5 inches of rain in my community. I live in a low lying area beside a canal which overflows during heavy rains. After two rain events of water going in my house many years ago, a levee was built surrounding our property. A pump was installed to pump water out and quite often we have to use a tractor/pump system to help out. Thankfully I was blessed that no water got in my house. Unfortunately, nearby towns and cities received 20.5 inches of rain. Homes and businesses are flooded, roads and the interstate have been impassable. I am so thankful to see the sunshine today!! My prayers are with all the families that have suffered loss.

I am sharing a thank you card today using the pretty sketch at Paper Play Sketches. The card is 5" x 6 1/2" white cardstock. Patterned papers are Momenta Textured and Double-Sided papers. Solid papers are from scrap stash.

Cricut Cartridges:
Spring Fling - Flower Branch is cut 2.50" high. Cricut Midnight pen is used for the drawing. I like the look of this flower branch.
Bits and Pieces - Banner is cut 4.35" wide x 1.60" high.

I hand cut the two sentiment mats. With a Thankful Heart is from CardzTV Heartfelt Wishes. Thank you Mary for my recent win! Love these stamps!

Martha Stewart Embossed ZigZag is used on the lower piece of paper.

Finishing touch is a crinkle ribbon bow from Little Scrap Pieces. Karen, I love the ribbons that I recently won!
