Red Hat Birthday

Welcome to Glenda's Cards! Thanks for stopping by!

Today I am sharing a card made for a Red Hat Lady. It has been awhile since I have played with red and purple and I enjoyed putting this card together. I am playing along with the sketch at Die Cut Diva's this week. The card is 5" x 6 1/2" cut from purple cardstock. It is layered with a gingham check paper cut at 4 3/4' x 6 1/4". Red cardstock measures 4 1/2" x 4 3/4" and is layered with a white cardstock measuring 4 1/4" x 4 1/2". The red dot strip is layered over a purple strip. I was happy to find this new paper. It is getting so hard to find different reds and purples!
Cricut cartridge:
Sweet Treats - Page 28 - Cupcake and layers cut 2.50". Page 42 - Cake plate and layers cut 1.5".
Happy Birthday folder - White mat, Swiss Dots - Cake plate, Divine Swirls - Chocolate Frosting

Other products:
