Winter Frolic Trees

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing a Christmas card that can be found in the Make It Now section in Cricut Design Space. However, I used the customize feature to change the size of the card. My finished card measures 4.25" x 5.50" where as the one shown in design space measures 3.5" x 5". Also I added a layer to the sentiment mat. Patterned tree paper is from The Paper Studio Winter Wonderland paper pack. I used a kraft cardstock for the base of the tree and other papers are from my scrap stash.

Cricut Cartridges:
Winter Frolic - Trees
The First Few Years - Classic tag label is cut 2.62" x 1.05"  to include the second layer of the label.
Anna's Christmas Cards & Embellishments - Merry Christmas is written on the label using the Cricut Midnight pen. For the inside of the card, the sentiment Sending Christmas Cheer is written on 3.75" wide x 2.4" high inserted rectangle shape.

Cuttlebug folder Winter Trees is used on the red mat. Love the additional trees on the card!

Liking the results of this one, I made four cards. A great card design for making those last minute Christmas cards!

Ornament Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I am working on Christmas cards! I really need to start earlier next year! This card is made using one of my recently purchased cartridges. I love Anna Griffin cartridges and thought it would be a perfect gift to myself!

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards 2 - Ornament card is cut 10" wide x 7" high. The image has an envelope with it but I did not cut it...set size for the card. Two shades of red paper and two shades of green paper are used. I am not sure if you can actually see the two reds.
Anna's Christmas Cards & Embellishments- Sentiment "Greetings of the Season" is printed on the label frame from The First Few Years. Label is cut 4.77" wide x 4.77" high. I used a Pilot Precise V5 red pen to do the writing. This is used inside the card.

Inside of the card.

I enjoy the looks of this card and decided to make another card using some pattern papers from The Paper Studio Christmas Traditions Foil Pack.
Second Card 

Inside of the card!

The sentiment for the second card is written on the Label Classic from The First Few Years using the same sentiment as first card. This label is cut 4.76" wide x 3.88" high.
