My Sheri's Crafts - Ch. 195 Winter

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today begins a new challenge at My Sheri Crafts! Design team sister Sue is hostess of  Challenge 195 - Winter. She asks that we create a project that has anything to do with Winter: Christmas, snow, hot chocolate, etc. 

Some time back, I was lucky to win a SVG certificate from FCCB sponsored by The Dreaming Tree. So many pretty SVG files are available on the site and it took me awhile to choose. I chose the lovely Christmas Bendi Cards SVG bundle. As it was a Christmas selection, I am just now playing with the file. This is also my first try with a Bendi card. I love the image and how great it all went together. I used black for the Santa sleigh against the snowflake background paper that I had chosen. I used sizes as given in the instructions. I am really pleased with the results! Many thanks to FCCB and The Dreaming Tree

Visit My Sheri Crafts to see the pretty designs by the talented design team. For more information and details, visit our indivdual blogs. 

Now it is your turn to play along with us. We look forward to seeing your pretty projects!

Decorated Christmas Plate

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

After seeing the pretty intricate images from a recently added cartridge in Cricut Design Space, I went shopping for a red charger. This one was bought at WalMart.

Cricut cartridge:
Intricate Seasonal Art - Let's Be Jolly is cut 7" wide x 6.44" high. The three layers of the image are cut from red, green, and white vinyl. The vinyl is from CraftEVinyl. Intricate is definitely the word for these images. I  was weeding for quite some time but I finally got it applied to the plate. 

I like the results and will be using the plate in my Christmas decorating.

These holidays are fast approaching and I am behind with my cards! This card is cut from green Recollections cardstock and measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" when folded.

Draw + Cut Holiday Tags

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I am having fun with my Cricut Explore machine and a recently added cartridge in Cricut Access. My card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and is cut from Red Recollections cardstock. Patterned papers are from The Paper Studio Yuletide Joy paper pack. I am using Mary's Sketch 10 at CARDZ TV. Although the sketch is a wonderful way to use some of those pretty scrap papers, I forced myself to cut a new sheet of paper!

Cricut Cartridge:
Draw+Cut Holiday Tags  - When I saw this pretty ornament, I knew that I would be putting it on a card. The Merry Christmas Ornament Tag is cut 2.48" wide x 3" tall. Cricut Midnight pen is used for the writing.

While cutting the ornaments, I chose to cut one layer from scrap piece of patterned paper. I tried a red pen from Pilot PreciseV5 in the pen holder on the Cricut machine. It worked great!

I added a bow made with DMC Memory Thread to each ornament. The ornaments are pop-dotted on the card for dimension.

I love the sketch and the ornament--hmm, I may have chosen the designs for my Christmas Cards this year!
