Pretty in Pink

Welcome to Glenda's Cards

Today I am sharing a card using one of the digital images that I recently won at Papercraft Star Challenge 104 Ice Cream. The gorgeous high quality printed images are from The House Across the Bay and I had so much fun playing with the pretty shoes!
The card measures 5" x 7" cut from white Colorbok cardstock. The pink polka dot paper is a scrap piece from K&Company Sweet Nectar Specialty Paper Pad. 
Cuttlebug: The white paper is embossed with one of the Cuttlebug Love's in the Air embossing set. I found these on clearance at Hobby Lobby. Yay for those clearance sales!
Cricut Cartridge is Mother's Day Bouquet. Flower is cut at 1.5" and 1.75".
Other supplies include Recollection heart gemstones to accent the hearts in the embossing. The pretty white lace is a gift from my design team sister Charlotte which I used to frame the digital image. White bow is 3 Girl Jam crinkled ribbon. Pop-dots are used under the digital image to add dimension.
I thought of framing this project but did not have a suitable frame available--but I will shop for one!

Welcome to Glenda's Cards
I have been wanting to make a Napkin Fold card using reds and purples! Of course, it is for a Red Hat Lady! When I saw the current challenge at Just Rite Inspiration is to use more than one fold on a card, I got busy!
The card begins with a 12" x 12" piece of red Recollections paper. Purple paper is Bazzill and the purple check is Recollections. The paper inside the card is DCWV Posies Glitter print. Choosing where to use the different papers took awhile, but I am pleased with the results!
I followed the tutorial at Splitcoaststampers. The paper is scored at 3" and 9", then turn the paper. Score again at 3" and 9". Now the fun begins with all the folding! Check out the tutorial and video for the complete instructions.

Inside of the card! 

Spellbinders Nestabilities:
Eyelet Circles - Sentiment circles on the band. Blossom for the small floral mat on the band.
Label 10 - Sentiment mats on the inside of the card. 
Just Rite Spellbinders - Corners
Just Rite Stamps: Old Friends Set on the band. Nested Sentiments on the inside. I am still learning to work with stamps!
Martha Stewart: Flower Shower Punch Around the Page set. Also the fern greenery...I do not know that name.
Cricut Cartridge: Lacy Labels. The rolled rose is on Heart3 which is the 4th image from the right on the last row. The rose is cut using the layer feature and cut at 12". I know that sounds really large but you see the finished size. This is my first time trying a rolled rose-- need more practice, but I am liking these flowers
Recollections gemstones, pop-dots on the band, white ribbon from stash. Color Box lilac and Versa Magic Gingerbread inking.

Hope you enjoy this Napkin Fold card and are inspired to try one too! This is a bulky card so it needs a box or may be hand delivered.

BBTB2 - All Shaped Up

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It is time for another fun and inspirational Cricut challenge at BBTB2!. Our talented design team sister Stephanie asked us to make a shaped card. Use any Cricut cartridge and any theme.
I thought this would be a good opportunity for me to play with Damask Decor and try one of the card features with the shaped front! I used Martha Stewart Holidays double-sided papers that were in my scrap stash.
Cricut Cartridges:
Damask Decor - Page 70 - Card feature is cut at 5.5" in  CCR. Layer 1 is the dark green paper under the tree. The completed card measures 5.5" x 3.5". An envelope image is also available but I have not cut it yet.
Christmas/Noel - Seasons Greetings is cut .75" for the inside of the card.
Inside of card!
This is a simple card but I do like the results. Most of my actual time was spent on choosing which double-sided papers to use. But I always take a lot time choosing my papers! Maybe if I would quit buying papers, I would not have too many choices!

Be sure to visit BBTB2 and see all the pretty and creative card shapes by the design team. For more information on the projects, please visit the individual blogs! We love your comments!
We are looking forward to seeing your creations! Remember you must use the Cricut! Just a reminder that our challenges run for only one week so get crafting! One person would be chosen to receive the Project of the Week award!

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate your comments!
