Happy Birthday

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I am back today with another birthday card. I enjoy playing with sketches and I wanted to try this pretty sketch from Mary at CARDZ TV. The card measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and is cut from cream cardstock. I used some pretty K&Company scrap this color and paper combination! The sketch is a pretty way to use those small pieces of papers that I do not want to toss.

Cricut Cartridges:
Monogram Motifs - Rose Heart is cut 2" wide.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards - Happy Birthday Friend is written on a 3.00" circle with the Cricut Copper Metallic pen. The circle was inserted using the Insert Shape feature on the Cricut Explore. This sentiment is used inside the card.

The sentiment "May God richly bless you!" is from the Heartfelt Wishes stamp set by Mary at CARDZ TV.

I am happy with the results of this card! Hope you enjoy too! 
Thanks for your visits and comments!

Fall Birthday - Pumpkin

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It is a lovely Fall Day in the neighborhood! I played with my Cricut Explore this morning to make this Fall Birthday card. Papers are leftover from previous projects. I have not bought any Fall paper for this season..yet! I have so many papers and paper pads that I am trying to stay out of the craft stores. Patterned papers are K&Company and solids are Recollection papers. Card measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" when folded and is cut from cream Recollections card stock. I was inspired by the pretty Sketch 3 at CARDZ TV.

Cricut Cartridges:
Cricut Damask Decor - Pumpkin is cut 2.25" w x 1.97" h. An extra pumpkin image is cut at 2" wide to be used inside the card. I used only the pumpkin.
Using Insert Shapes in Cricut Design Space, I changed a square into 2.69" w x .59" h rectangle for the sentiment. Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder is used on the mat.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards - Happy Birthday is written on the rectangle with the Cricut midnight pen.

Inside the card.

Using Anna's Lace Cards and Embellishments, the sentiment Loving Thoughts is writtten on a 3.83" w x 3" h mat. The cream mat was cut using the Insert Shapes feature.
