Time To Celebrate..Happy Birthday

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It has been awhile since I have posted on my blog. Today I am sharing a birthday card using a Cut and Emboss die that I recently purchased. Card is 5" x 6 1/2".

Anna Griffin Corner Pocket Dies - The white corner pocket is cut and embossed using my Cuttlebug machine. This set includes three dies. This die set is made for the Empress Embossing machine, but I have now cut and embossed two of the dies. The third die is too large for the Cuttlebug. Does that mean that I will have to buy an Empress?

Cricut Cartridges:
Insert Shape: 
Card is cut 10" wide x 6.5" high from white cardstock. Yellow patterned paper is cut 4.75" wide x 6.25" high.
Anna's Window Box Cards - Time to Celebrate is cut 1.715" wide x 3.25" high. Two of the yellow roses with the small blue flowers are cut 2.153" wide x 2.75" high with one cut using flip feature. Middle rose is cut smaller, but I did not record size.
Anna's Vintage Florals - Iris is cut 2.89" wide x 4" high.
Anna's Soiree Lettering - Butterfly is 1.75" wide x .831" high.

Inside of Card!

Anna's Gracious Giftables  - Rose Boutonniere. Two of the yellow flowers are used inside card.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards - Happy Birthday to You is written with the Cricut Bluebonnet pen on a  3.75" wide x 4" high white cardstock.

Happy Birthday

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I was excited to receive my Anna Griffin Corner Pocket Dies! Of course, my first card had to be pink! Card is 5" x 6 1/2" cut from Recollections pink cardstock. Patterned background paper is Cricut Anna Griffin Rose Medley.

Cricut Cartridges:
Shapes -  Changing the square shape to a rectangle, the card was cut from the pink cardstock at 10" wide x 6.5" high. Patterned paper for card base is cut 4.75" wide x 6 .25" high.
Anna's Roses - Roses are Print and Cut images. Two large roses (upper left rose and lower right rose) are cut 2.63" x 3.093" high. Rose in center is cut 2.346" wide x 2.75" high. Small rose on lower left side is cut 1.25" wide. I trimmed some of the stems to place the roses in position that I chose.
Anna's Window Ledge Cards - Happy Birthday Banner is cut 3.50" wide.
Anna's Fantastic FlipCards - Corner is cut 2.25" wide.

Cuttlebug: 
Anna Griffin Matelasse - Folder is used on patterned paper mat.
Anna's Corner Pocket Dies - There are three dies in this set which are recommended for the Empress Machine. I was able to cut and emboss this rose die with the Cuttlebug machine. One of the dies is larger and may not work with Cuttlebug. Oops!

Banner, small rose, and middle rose are pop-dotted on card. 

I am loving the looks of this card! Hope you enjoy!

Feel Better Soon

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
 
I have been playing along with the pretty sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches and this is what I came up with. The card base is from a package of purchased Recollections Ivory cards and envelopes that measures 5" x 6 1/2".  I used the 6 1/2" as the width of the card. The pretty patterned paper is from K&Company Susan Winget SW Harvest double-sided paper. 

Cricut Cartridges:
Using Insert Shapes in Design Space the square is sized to 6.25" wide x 4.75" high rectangle for the card mat layer.
Anna's Elegant Embellishments 2 - Tag is cut 4.50" wide x 3.065" high using Recollections yellow and purple papers.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards 2 - Sentiment "Feel Better Soon" is written on the yellow tag with the Cricut Midnight pen.
Flower Shoppe - 3D Flower #M3DAA8 Larger purple flower in the center is cut 1.50" wide and again at 1.25" wide. The two yellow and two smaller purple flowers are cut at 1.25" wide and again at 1.00" high. I sprayed each flower with a bit of water, crumpled the flower, and let dry before shaping and gluing together.

Cuttlebug Polka Dots folder is used on the patterned paper background for dimension.
Recollections pearls are added in center of each flower. Sentiment tag is pop-dotted on card.

The patterned paper pad has been in my stash for a long time. I like the results of the colors! 
Hope you enjoy! Thanks for your visits and comments!

Happy Birthday to You!

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

After doing yard work yesterday morning, I needed a break in the craft room. Playing around with pretty patterned paper from Craft Smith Tea Party, this is what happened! Recollection solid papers and Recollections Shimmer Cardstock White Gold papers were used on card. White card measures 6 1/2" x 5".

Cricut Cartridges:
Insert Shapes - Square sized to 6.25" wide x 4.75" high rectangle for the patterned paper used on base of card.
Elegant Edges - Square Lace Edge Frame sized to 2.5" wide x 3.111" high for the light and dark pink paper frame.
Small Talk Frames & Tags - Frame is cut 3" wide x 2.996" high from the white and aqua papers.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards 2  - "Happy Birthday to You" is written with the Cricut Pink Crystal pen on the white paper of the frame.
Anna's Roses -  Rose is cut 1.539" wide x 1.805" high. This is a print and cut mage. I think the pretty rose works well with the patterned rose paper.

Martha Stewart Swirling Lace edge punch is used on 1.5" strip of pink patterned paper. I added a Michael's adhesive trim. Pretty sequins are a win from SpiegelMom Scraps.

I love the way this turned out! Hope you enjoy!

With Love

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a good crafting weekend! I found some playing time in the craft room to make this card. The premade white card measures 5" x 6 1/2". Patterned papers are scraps from some pretty K&Company paper pads. Solid pinks are Recollections and the solid greens are from Cricut.
Cuttlebug - With Love Embossing folder is used on the lower green strip of paper.
Cricut Cartridges:
J. Goode Design Flower Bouquet  - Tulip is cut 3.25" wide x 3.167" high. I used three shades of pink for the flower. Top section of larger flower is pop-dotted on the lower section. Leaves/stems are made with two shades of green.

Cricut Pens:
Wine fine point pen - pink papers; Sour Apple medium point 1.0 on green leaves and stems. 

I distressed edges of the mat paper with scissors and inked the edges. Top right corner is turned down and coordinating paper is added under it. I hand cut the flower from lace and pop-dotted it in corner. Pearls from my collections. Pink inking added to card base.

Simple, but I do like the results! Thanks for your visits and comments!
