Red Hat Lady Twisted Easel Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing a birthday card made for a Red Hat Lady using the twisted easel card style. Mary has a great tutorial at Cardz TV for the twisted easel card. This is a fun card style which I enjoy making. I think it makes a pretty card for display.

The base of the card is cut 4 1/4" x 9 3/4". Papers are Recollections, Brazill, and Colorbok white.
Cricut cartridges:
Kate's ABC's - Page 28 - Hat is cut 1.75"
Wild Card - Page 61 Phrase "Happy Birthday" is cut 4".
Spellbinders Nestabilities Label Ten is used on the purple and white mats. 
Cuttlebug: Swiss Dots on the hat
Other supplies include Recollections Floral Embellishments and purple gemstones. Hat is pop-dotted on the mat. The sentiment mat is pop-dotted as a stop for the front of the card. Martha Stewart lavender ink.

BBTB2 - Christmas in July

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It is Monday and time for another fun challenge at BBTB2! Our talented design team sister Jayne is our hostess and she has chosen Christmas In July for our theme. Use any cut from any Cricut cartridge to make a Christmas card, layout, or project.
Cricut cartridge is Wrap It Up. Candy Cottage is on page 28. I have been wanting to cut the Candy Cottage for some time. So glad Jayne chose Christmas theme! I used the card feature for the house shaped card. It is cut 5.5" from the light green cardstock. The Candy Cottage image on shift was cut from the green patterned paper and glued on top of the card. Layer images were cut from the candy cane paper and the bright pink paper. Patterned papers are scraps from K&Company Secret Santa paper pad.
I hand cut beige/gold paper to glue behind the windows for the effect of inside light. The candy in the windows and one for the door knob are hand cut from the candy cane paper scrap.
Inking is Dew Drop Versa Magic Gingerbread. I chose not to have a sentiment/greeting on the front of the card.

Stop by BBTB2 to see all the gorgeous Christmas projects by the design team. For more information, please visit the individual blogs. We do love your visits and comments!
