Die Cuttin' Divas - Ch. 322 Camping Fun with Woodland Critters

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
 
It is time again for another fun challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas! Ch 322 is all about Camping Fun with Woodland Critters. I have not made a side step card in quite some time. I thought this card style would be a good way to display several woodland images. A tutorial for the step card card can be found at SplitCoast Stampers. The fun thing about these cards is choosing all the images you want to display. When card is folded, it measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". Papers are from my scrap stash.

Die Cuttin' Divas - Ch. 311 Sketch

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It is time again for a new challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas! Ch. 311 is a Sketch.  My white card stock card measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". Papers are Recollections.

Cricut Cartridges:
Hopping Down the Bunny Trail - Happy Easter Frame is cut 3.36" wide x 2.62" high.  There are five layers for this image and I like the way it turned out.
Using Insert Shapes in Cricut Design Space, the purple rectangle is cut 5.38" wide x 4. 12" high. Yellow rectangle is cut 4.75" wide x 3.50" high. Pink rectangle is cut 2.07" wide x 3.43" high. Green rectangle is cut 3.94" wide x 1.49" high.

I enjoy using patterned papers on my projects. However, I chose to add dimension to solid papers with new and old Cuttlebug folders for this card. That is right--no patterned papers!
Cuttlebug Folders:
Anna Gifffin Woven Diamonds - Purple. Woven Diamonds Border -Green
Anna Griffin Matelasse - Pink
Swiss Dots - Yellow 

I added a purple DMC Memory Thread bow and Recollections pearls to complete the card.
