Happy New Year 2012

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

As the new year quickly approaches, I finally find time to post a New Year's card. The card is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" from white Colorbok cardstock and is layered with a green glitter paper. The green, pink, and yellow papers are glitter papers from the Paper Studio Birthday Extravanganza paper pack.

Cuttin' Up - Page 75  Let's Party cut 1". 2012 - I think is .50".
Cuttlebug Folder - Tiffany - I decided to frame the little whimsical party horn. I was excited to find this pretty folder at Michael's during my last shopping spree!

First Christmas Card for 2012

Welcome to Glenda's Cards! Thanks for visiting today!

This is my first Christmas card for 2012! Yes, I have good intentions of making more Christmas cards next year...we will see! I saw this cute sketch at Christmas Card Challenges and decided to play along. The tall card was cut from red cardstock at 9" x 8" and scored at 4". My papers are scraps from previous projects using Greetings of the Season paper pack that was bought at Hobby Lobby a couple of years ago.
Cricut cartridge:
Winter Lace - Snowflake 2 (8th image on first row) is cut at 2.25 from white cardstock. To bring out the smaller gold snowflakes in the background paper, the shadow cut is from gold paper.

Poinsettia is a paper flower from Making Memories that was purchased last year on clearance. Almost forgot these were in my stash! I inked the edges a bit and pop-dotted the flower on the snowflake.
Sentiment is a Christmas Crafts stamp on the gold paper. I used the Martha Stewart Doily Lace Trim punch on the green paper.

There are so many possibilities with the sketch. The weekly challenge runs for a couple more days so if you want to start on Christmas cards now, check out the blog!

Happy Birthday using Cricut Damask Decor

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I had a little time to craft today so I decided to play with the Cricut Damask Decor cartridge. Inspired by the pretty sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches, this is my results! My card is 6 1/2" x 5" white cardstock. The patterned paper is cut at 6 1/4" X 4 3/4". All the pretty papers are from K&Company. For the strips, I cut 4 pieces of the striped paper from the paper pack.
Cricut Cartridge:
Damask Decor - Page 67- Heart image - 3.75". Tag - 2.50". I cut the images using the Cricut Craft Room.
I am loving the cuts on this cartridge!
Lots of inking, Studio G birthday stamp, Recollection gemstones, DMC Memory Thread for the bow on tag.
Both images are pop-dotted on the card.

Hope you enjoy!
