Make A Wish Birthday Card - Flower Shoppe

Welcome to Glenda's Cards and thank you for stopping by today!

My white card is 5" x 6 1/2' and is layered with a 4 3/4" x 6 1/4" patterned paper from ColorBok. I like the vintage look of the papers in this pack. Sometimes the paper is so pretty that it can stand alone, but I do enjoy adding Cricut cuts to make it more personal.

I am enjoying the Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge. I thought I would check out You Tube to get more ideas and was pleased to see that Kimberly at My Craft Spot has some great videos sharing techniques of making flowers with the Flower Shoppe cartridge. To see her videos, look for Sentimental Scrapper.
I was inspired by the crumpled flower by Kimberly. I used Scallop 4 on page 13 and cut two of the images. I worked in the Cricut Craft Room--think the flower was 2.5 and 2.25. The center is Basic 4 on page 12 cut at 2.5. I get carried away in the CCR and forget to write down the actual sizes. I spritzed the cut papers with water, crumpled, and let dry. Edges are slightly inked. The layers are glued together and pop-dotted on the mat. This is my first try spraying water on a flower but I am pleased with the results of the flower. I will be making more!

Cricut Cartridges:
Flower Shoppe - Flower Scallop 4
Elegant Edges - Eyelet 3 page 68 --Oblong image cut at 3.00w x 3.861 h. It is embossed with the Cuttlebug Script folder. Small pearls are glued in the centers.
Birthday Bash -  Phrase "Make a Wish" on Page 52 cut 1.833w x .472h. I love the banner look on the paper and thought that was a great place for the sentiment!

Hope you enjoy my card!

Fantabulous Cricut Ch 88 - Holiday Cards

Welcome to Glenda's Cards! It is time for another fun challenge at Fantabulous Cricut! This week we are thinking Holiday cards. Can you believe that Christmas holidays will soon be here! If you have not started on your holiday cards, this challenge is for you!
I am happy to share a lovely embellishment from our sponsor Creative Charms with you! Be sure to visit their site and see all the gorgeous embellishments! They have beautiful brads, charms, ribbons, and embellishments for scrapbooking and card making. Thank you Creative Charms for being our sponsor this week at FCCB and for letting me share your product.

My card is 6 1/2" x 5" and is layered with a pretty K&Company SW Glad Tidings paper. I love the Musical Notes/Noel embellishment from Creative Charms and I wanted to continue the musical theme of Glad Tidings! What better way to do that than with the angel from Cricut Christmas Noel. I think this is a very pretty angel and I am happy to use this image for the first time. I am singing The First Noel the Angels did say! Such wonderful news!
I pop-dotted the angel on a double mat cut using Cricut Lacy Labels Asian image. This is the fifth image on the first row. The K&Company patterned paper for the mat is run through the Cuttlebug using the Allergo folder.
I am happy with this card and hope you enjoy it!

Be sure to visit FCCB and see all the lovely cards by the design team. We appreciate when you visit our blogs and leave comments. Now it is your turn to share your Holiday cards with us. As always, you must include a Cricut cut. You have until midnight Sunday Dec. 4th to submit.
