My Sheri Crafts Ch. 77 New Things!

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It is time for another fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts! For Challenge 77, design team member Michelle chose the theme "New Things"! We are asked to include new crafting items that we may have received on our project or maybe use a new technique. I enjoyed working with a new card style technique. When you look at the front of the card, it does resemble the Triangle Trifold. However, when it is opened, you see that it is a Six-Fold Card. The inspiring tutorial can be found at SplitCoastStampers.

The base of the card is made from a 8"x 12" piece of white cardstock. Please view the tutorial to see the scoring, cutting, and folding instructions. My designer papers are from K&Company Kelly Panacci Valentine that was bought last year. In fact, most of the papers are left over scraps from last year's Valentine projects.

Cricut Cartridges:
Ribbons and Rosettes - This is one of my newest cartridges and only the second time for me to use it. I love all the beautiful rosette and border cuts that are available. The Heart rosette is on page 35. It was cut at 1.50" in the Cricut Craft Room and cut 6 times.
Elegant Edges - Page 50 -Circle 2 was cut 3.528" x 3.50" from white cardstock. I used this cut for the background mat for the rosette. Same cut using pattened paper for the mat under the word Love.
Sweethearts - Page 34 - Love is cut 1.75", Page 73- Heart flowers (6 petals) and shadow cut 1.25". I used only one of the flowers cut using the shift key for the flower at top of card. It is cut at 1.75". 

Other supplies are pink inking, Stickles Diamond on the flower centers, pink heart gemstone, and pop dots for the rosette. Happy Valentine's Day is one of the dollar wooden stamps from Michael's.

After my card was finished, I realized the triangles on the card front were in different direction than those shown on the tutorial. Hmm, I turned my paper the wrong way! Well, guess I added my own little twist because it works fine for me! Because of the thickness of the layers, I chose to do a band to go around the card rather than a ribbon.

Hope you enjoy my project trying to learn a new card technique.
Now it is your turn to play with us at My Sheri Crafts. Be sure to visit the designers to see all the great projects they have created for the challenge. We look forward to seeing your projects with new items or maybe a new technique. Remember one person will be selected to be the next guest designer and several Ooh La La awards are given!
