BBTB2 - Bakery Challenge

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Happy Monday everyone! Hope all you Moms had a great day!
It is time for another fun challenge at BBTB2! This week our talented Julia has chosen a Bakery Challenge. This can be anything that you find in a bakery and can be cut from any Cricut cartridge. You can make a card, layout, or 3D project.
My card is 5' x 6 1/2" cut from light blue cardstock. The patterned paper is Recollections Cupcake. How sweet is that! So naturally I chose to do a cupcake. Rest of the papers are from my scraps stash.
Cricut Cartridges:
Elegant Edges - Page 39  Swirl 2 using shift key is cut at 3.25" from white Colorbok cardstock. Frame image is cut same size from blue cardstock.
Sweet Treats - Page 28 Cupcake is cut 1.75". Page 61 Make a wish is cut 1.125".

Swiss Dots on the Frame and the word wish.

Other supplies:
Glossy Accent - chocolate frosting and pink heart. Sorry, my photo does not show that well.
Paper Studio Spare Parts - Cupcake brad. I have had this package for a long time. I thought the little cupcake would work well with my card! It is pop-dotted on card.

Down on the Farm Scene

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Happy Mother's Day! Hope you are having a great day!
It was a rainy day here on Saturday. After housecleaning and laundry, I was able to play with my Cricut and design this card with the farm scenes. This really took a lot of time with the cutting and layering but I am happy with the results. I enjoy living in the country and enjoy the country scenes!
The card is cut from a piece of white Colorbok cardstock at 8" x 9" and  folded in half to make a 4" x 9" tall card. The background paper is Recollections Light Blue Distressed. I was happy to find this in my stash and thought it would be good for the sky. All other papers are from my scrap stash.
Cricut Cartridges:
Country Life - Looks like I am showcasing this cartridge as I added many of the images to the card.
Page 43 and 44 - Hen 1 and Hen 2 cut 1.25". I first cut the images smaller but the paper kept tearing in the Cricut so I had to increase the size.
Page 52 - Apple tree cut 2.75
Page 58 -  Barn cut 2.75"
Page 58 - Phrase Down On The Farm cut 1".
Page 63 - Windmill cut 2.50". Of course it had to be cut in yellow and green!
Page 72- Countryside on shift cut 2"- one was cut on flip. This is the greenery at the bottom of card. Using the layer1 on shift, cut two greenery at 1".
Page 73 - Wildflower image on shift for the green grass cut 1.5". This is the 2 light green grasses at fence.
Create a Critter
Page 29 - Sun cut 1.5"
Page 69 - Red Flowers (Accessory key) cut 1.5"
I used lots of inking which was a tough job with the smaller pieces. I had more on my fingers than on paper!
