Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Happy Spring everyone! I do enjoy Spring and all the pretty blooming flowers. 
Today is time again for another fun challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas. Ch. 309 is 3D Bags, Purses, and Boxes. I chose to make a bag with some pretty Spring color paper. The paper pad is Craft Smith Tea Party that was bought a few years back.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Sophisticated Soiree - Flourish Treat Bag is cut 11" wide x 7.05" high. I love the pretty flourish top of the bag!

Although I have Cricut rosette flower images, I chose to hand cut this rosette with my Fiskars cutting board. The 12" inch strip of paper was cut at 1 1/4" wide and folded at each 1/4 inch. I added a pretty pink brad from The Paper Studio Spare Parts. Rosette is pop-dotted on the bag.  I added a little pink tissue paper. A perfect little box for candy and/or small gift for my special friend.

Flowers for a Friend

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It is a beautiful day in our neighborhood today, but too wet for me to work in the yard. I think Spring has arrived. I am sharing a photo of my azaleas. Aren't they gorgeous!
Now to the fun card that I made!


I have been playing with another one of the Cricut Digital Cartridges that was in the March Mystery box. Card is 4 1/2" x 5 1/2" white cardstock.

Garden Party Birthday Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I have been playing with some of the recent Cricut digital cartridges that were in the March Mystery Box. Today I am sharing one of the cards. Papers are Recollections. 

Cricut Cartridge: 
JGoode Garden Birthday Party - Garden Birthday card is cut 8.50" wide x 5.50" high from the pink paper. An envelope is included with the card, but I ungrouped and deleted the envelope image. My cut size does not include the envelope. All layers are included with the card image except for the butterfly.
Butterfly is also from the same cartridge and is cut 2.50" wide x 1.92" high. It is pop-dotted on the card.
I used the Cricut Mignight pen for the pen work. I am unsure why no more of the pretty pen work is not seen under the pink corner embellishment. Both images are the same size. If you put the white paper with the pen work over the pink paper, you see no pink. Looking at the image in design space you see pink on top. I offset the two layers a little bit to see some of the white and black.

 View of the pretty pen work.

Cuttlebug Woven Diamonds folder is used on the yellow mat for more texture.
I added a small twine bow for extra embellishment.

For the inside of the card:
Using Insert Shapes in CCR, I cut a 4" wide x 5 1/4" high yellow rectangle. The pink rectangle is cut 3.5" wide x 3" high. 
Happy Birthday is cut 3" wide x 1.73" from purple paper and pen work is using the midnight pen.

Happy Birthday Shaker Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I thought Spring had sprung in our area, but it is much cooler today! Nice day to stay inside and play with the Cricut machine! Today I am sharing my first attempt at a shaker card. Needing a birthday card for one of my Red Hat Lady friends, I was excited to play with red and purple. I was inspired to use sequins by the FCCB blog but would you believe I had to buy sequins! I like the way this turned out so I will probably use sequins again!

My white cardstock card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Patterned paper is from a Red Hat Society paper pack that I have had for ages! Solid papers are Recollections scraps from previous projects. 

Cricut Cartridges:
Cindy Lou - Frame is cut 3.50" wide x 3.02" high. I actually cut two frames, one from red paper and the one from purple paper. I chose to use the purple frame and I cut the red flower segment out of the red frame and placed it on the purple frame. I could not find any acetate paper so I hand cut a piece from a scrapbook page protective cover. The light purple paper was hand cut for the backing of the frame. Red and purple sequins are used inside the frame.
Classic Font - Thinking of You is cut 2.75" wide. I lost the two little dots for the i's and chose to use two sequins. Works for me!
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards - Happy Birthday Friend is written with a red Precise V5 Pilot pen on a 3.75" square.

Red and White Valentine

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I am posting a Red and white Valentine card that I made. Card measures 5" x 6 1/2" and is cut from white card stock. The red heart paper is from K&Company Specialty Paper pad. The red hearts have a shiny foil look. White with red hearts paper is from the Paper Studio.

Cricut Cartridges:
Using Cricut Design Space and Insert Shape feature, I inserted the square shape and changed it to a rectangle for the mat on the card. Next I inserted the heart shape and sliced the heart from the mat. I added a square of the white with red hearts paper behind the heart.

I Love You Valentine

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It has been some really hard times for the past couple of weeks. My Mom has been very ill and sadly she spent her 87th birthday on Sunday in the hospital. She entered into Glory Land Thursday night. I am missing her so much but I am thankful for all the time we had. I have the promise to be together again.

This card measures 5" x 7" and is cut from Recollections Valentine's Day paper pack. I was able to play with some of my new Anna Griffin products.

Cricut Cuttlebug:
Anna Griffin Mix and Match Cuttlebug Set - Oval Scroll Frame and I Love You Die for the pink insert.
Anna Griffin Woven Daimonds folder - Used on the pink strip

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna Griffin Vintage Florals - These are Print and Cut images. Carolina 1 is cut 1.75" wide x 1.22" high. Carolina 2 is cut 2.16" wide x 2.4" high. I love the looks of the flowers.

Inside the card.

I used the Insert Shapes feature in Cricut Design Space to cut the 4" x 4" square for the inside of the card.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards - The sentiment For My Valentine is written on the pink square using the Cricut Midnight pen.
The heart and bow are Anna Griffin images that were left over from another project. I did not record those sizes.
