Fantastic Flipcards - 6

 Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing the sixth flipcard in my series of making the Fantastic Flipcards. Do you notice the pretty paper? When I saw the pretty double-sided Anna Griffin cardstock available on Cricut, I just had to purchase a few choices. This is the Rose Medley paper pack. Love it! Card measures 5" x 7".

Cricut Cartridge:
Anna's Fantastic Flipcards - Card is cut 11:03" wide x 6.943" high. This is the cut size without the included envelope. Roses cut 2.5" wide x 3.35" high. I cut two same size with one on flip.

When looking at roses inside of card, you will see the printed rose rather than the white paper of back side of rose.
Sentiments are written with the Cricut Midnight pen.
Butterfly is cut 1.50" wide x 1.33" high and again with image on flip.
Corner is cut 1.25" wide x 1.269" high. I cut two corners.

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Needing a birthday card for a Red Hat Lady friend, I enjoyed playing with one of my recently purchased Anna Griffin cartridges. Card measures 4 7/8 " wide x 6 7/8" high. Card is cut from Recollections red cardstock. Other papers include Red Hat Society papers that I have had a long time. Purple and white papers are from the stash.

Fantastic Flip Cards - 5

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing the fifth card in my series of making Anna's Fantastic Flip Cards with the Cricut. I am loving this cartridge! There are ten different card style openings. Of course, each card style can have different looks about it. For this card, I sized it down to approximately 5" x 6 1/2" rather than the 5" x 7" cards. The pretty double-sided paper is from K&Company. The above photo is of the card standing with a slight opening.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Fantastic Flipcards - This card is cut 10.36" wide x 6.485" high. "Happy Birthday" and "A Note to say" are written on the mats with the Cricut Midnight pen. Bow used inside the card is also from the same cartridge. I added the white mat so a personal message can be written.
Anna's Soiree Lettering - Flowers on front. Larger flower is cut 2.50" wide x 1.50" high and smaller one is cut 1.75" wide x 1.054" high. I cut the flowers from some of the same blue patterned paper as the card. Love how they turned out!
