Red Truck/Pumpkins

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It seems that I am catching the red truck bug! Anyway I wanted to make a card using a red truck image! I used a precut 6 1/2" x 5" ivory card. Patterned paper and papers for the cut images are left over from previous projects. Craft Smith Embossed Naturals paper is used for the top mat. 

Cricut Cartridges:
Red Truck Collection - Red truck/Pumpkins is cut 4.811" wide x 2.872" high.
Pumpkin Farm - Autumn Greetings text is cut 2.929" wide x 1.643" high.
Fall Sweet Fall  - Leaves are from the It's Fall Y'all image. I only cut the leaves not the phrase. Leaves are cut in varying sizes and colors.
I like the way this card turned out! Hope you enjoy!

A Fall Birthday Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It has been  a busy summer with little time for cardmaking! Needing a birthday card for a friend, I made time to play with my Cricut Maker. 
Card is 7" wide x 5" high cut from Colorbok Kraft Cardstock pad. Plaid Patterned papers are cut from DCWV Four Season Papers Pad. Solid Papers are from the scrap paper stash.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Window Ledge Cards - Card is cut 7" wide x 10" high.
Using Insert Shapes feature, the white base mat is cut 6.75" wide x 4.75" high. The orange mat is cut 4.25" wide x 3.25" high. The lighter patterned paper is cut 4" wide x 3" high.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards - Phrase Happy Birthday Friend is written on the light patterned mat using the Cricut Midnight pen.
JGoode Designs - Sunflower is cut 2.98" wide x 3.563" high. Writing is using the Cricut Very Berry Medium Tip pen.

I am playing along with this week's sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. I used my Fiskars hand cutter to cut the varying sizes of  plaid strips used for the background. Sizes are 1 strip at 1 1/4", 2 at 1", 1 at 3/4", 1 at 1/2", 1 at 3/8", and 2 at 1/4". I enjoyed working with this pretty sketch.
I love that pretty sunflower. The pen work adds so much detail to the flower.
Hope you enjoy! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

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.

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!
