An Umbrella Card

For My Sheri Crafts design team post, please click Here or scroll down!

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing a card made for a few challenges. The 5" x 7" card is cut from white Colorbok cardstock. I enjoy working with this pretty patterned K&Company Watercolor Boquet Die-Cut Mat Pad. The die-cut mat is 4.75" x 6.75" and I thought it would be perfect for my card.
Cricut Cartridge:
Paisley - Page 48. Using the main image and the image on shift, the umbrella is cut 3". I chose not to use all the layers because I wanted a pretty floral umbrella.
Flower Shoppe - Page 13 - Flower. I used the scallop 1, 2, and 4 images and it was cut at 1.875 in Cricut Craft Room.
Cuttlebug: Swiss Dots on the white mat.

Other supplies:
Creative Memories - Oval Mats 
Stamps - My Craft Spot "Friends & Neighbors" Inside and Out. I won this stamp set recently at one of Kimberly's challenges! I just love this set of stamps! Perfect for inside and out! Thanks again Kimberly for your kindness!

Inking - VersaMagic Gingerbread

My Sheri Crafts - Ch 83 Marvelous Monograms

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

It is time for another fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts! Challenge 83 is Marvelous Monograms. We are asked to make monogram cards or a special project with lots of style! For my Monogram card, I chose to use lots of Red Hat Lady style!

Cricut Cartridges:
Sentimentals - Page 28 - Card feature cut 5". This is one of the older Cricut cartridges. It has pretty card shapes and frames that I forget to use! Page 29 - Frame, layer, and shadow are cut 4.25".
Storybook - Page 46 - Letter S is cut 1.75".

Other supplies:
Purple Bazell cardstock, Recollection papers.
Rosette is cut at 3/4" x 12' and scored at each 1/4".
Heart shape button and red hat embellishment are Dress It Up "Friends". This package has so many cute buttons and embellishments for a Red Hat Lady. I am so happy that I bought several packages a couple of years ago because I can not find the buttons now.
Paper Studio - Ribbon for the bow
Recollections - Gemstones and the small red flowers.
Red feather from stash!
White Gelly Roll pen for faux stitching.
