Happy Fall Y'all Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I am pleased to see more great images have been added to Cricut Access in Cricut Design Space! When I saw this cartridge, I wanted to make a card. As usual, my biggest decision was choosing which images to use first! The card measures 5 1/2" wide x 4 1/4" high.

Cricut Cartridges:
Basic Shapes - Card is cut from Recollections brown paper at 5.50" wide x 8.50" high.
Rectangle is cut 5.50" wide x 4.25" high from DCWV Four Seasons plaid paper. A second rectangle is cut 5.25" wide x 4" high from the DCWV tree/leaves patterned paper for the top mat.

Everyday is a Holiday - I like the fonts of the Phrases and Word Art projects in the cartridge.
Truck with pumpkins is cut 4.333 wide x 1.771" high. I also cut a black out image at the same size from the brown paper. I did not want black or white windows so the brown paper works for me. The truck has been on a dirt road!
Phrase - Happy Fall Y'all is cut 3.596" wide x 1.83" high.

I added a left over leaf from a previous project to lower right corner of card.  

I like the way this card turned out! Hope you enjoy! Thank you for your visits and comments!

Ice Cream Sundae Cascade Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I have had little time to craft lately. I am happy to finish this card that I am sharing with a few challenges!
Papers are Recollections--Most of it is from the scrap stash.
 
Cricut Cartridges:
 
Crazy Cool Cards -  This formally Cricut Circle cartridge was recently added to Cricut Design Space. I never was subscribed to that feature, so I am happy to see it now available in Design Space. If you are subscribed to Cricut Design Space, be sure to check out all the recently added Cricut cartridges.
Ice Cream Sundae Cascade Card is cut 13.796" wide x 7.429" high. The size includes the envelope. The handbook is not available on the cartridge handbook webpage. The cut size that I used makes a 5" high card...pretty skinny though, about 3" wide. 
Using Cricut Shape feature, I cut a 1.75" square from the white cardstock. I attached a sentiment to be printed on the square. A second square without the sentiment was cut.
Thoughts & Phrases - Happy Birthday is written with the Cricut Bluebonnet pen. 

I placed a 3/8" x 3.75" strip of white cardstock between the two squares and glued it together. This is placed in the section behind the sundae.

Cuttlebug Folders:
Swiss Dots - Strawberry ice cream. Divine Swirls on the Chocolate ice cream for some dimension.

Side view of the cascade card.

This is my first try with the cartridge. Hope it is made correctly! Looks ok to me!

Welcome Fall

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I enjoy making Fall themed cards and I have another card to share with you! Card measures 6 1/2" wide x 5" high cut from Recollections Spice Market paper pack. Patterned paper is DCWV Four Seasons and other papers are from scrap stash!

Cricut Cartridges:
Creative Cards - Rectangle card is cut 6.5" wide x 10" high.

Talk Turkey to Me - Welcome Fall saying is cut 4.545" wide x 3.35" high. This includes the words, acorn, leaves, and a pumpkin. I did not use the pumpkin that is with this image because I wanted a pumpkin with a shadow image. I count extra of the shorter leaves. This cartridge is now available free in Cricut Access, whereas it was a cartridge to buy. I am happy to see all the new cartridges that have been made available lately to Access! 
Thanksgiving Table Decor - Pie Box. I cut only the pumpkin image. Two pumpkins are cut 1.25" wide x 1.15" high and the smaller pumpkin is cut 1" wide x .92" high.

Happy Birthday

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
Needing a birthday card for a friend, I chose to play with my newest Cricut cartridge. Card is 5" x 7" cut from Recollections purple cardstock. Patterned papers are from Anna Griffin Amelie pad.

I have this ongoing debate about purchasing a Cricut Maker. Whenever I saw the Anna Griffin rose Maker on HSN, I thought now is the time to buy. However after adding it to the shopping cart several times, I decided against the purchase. I am still using the Cricut Explore and it works fine for me on projects that I do. Just to say that I did shop, I purchased the new Anna's Scoring Wheel Tricks cartridge which was designed for the Maker. This is my first card using one of the image, but my Explore did good enough for me on the scoring. Maybe one day, I will purchase the Maker! HA!

This card design can be found in the Anna Griffin category in Cricut Design Space. I customized the design to suit my needs.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Scoring Wheel Tricks -- Drapery Fold
Anna's Elegant Embellishments - Flourish border is cut 7" wide x 1" high from the solid lavender paper.
Anna's Print and Cut Library Vol. 1 - Two large roses on the front. Smaller roses used inside the card.
Anna's Fantastic FlipCards - Butterfly cut 1".
Inside card:
Anna's Summer Soirees - BBQ Label is cut 5.5" wide from the purple patterned paper. The white label is cut 5.25" wide from the white paper.
Anna's Lace Cards and Embellishments - Sentiment "With Loving Thoughts" is written with the Cricut Lavender pen on the white label.


Inside the card!

Cuttlebug Matelasse folder is used on the Purple patterned paper on front of card. The Matelasse Border is used on the light purple strip on front of card.
Happy Birthday sentiment circle is from an Anna Griffin cardmaking kit.
Lots of pop-dots used on front.

I am pleased with the results of the card! Hope you enjoy!

Another Christmas Card in July

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing another Christmas Card in July. It always helps me to get an early start on making my Christmas cards. You know it is only 5 months until Christmas!! Where has this year gone!

Papers are Colorbok white, Recollections shades of blue, and patterned paper is from DCWV Four Seasons paper pad. Choosing paper takes awhile for me, but I am well pleased with the colors and papers on this card.
 
Card is Dreaming Tree Silent Night Bendi Card. For more interest, I chose to add glitter snowflakes to the white paper. The snowflake svg is from Dreaming Tree Snowflake Tag. I cut 4 differents sizes of snowflakes and glued them on at random.
