BBTB2 - Use a Tree

 Welcome to Glenda's Cards

Today begins another fun and inspirational challenge at BBTB2! Our talented designer Jayne asked us to create a project using a tree from any Cricut cartridge. My first thought was to add to my Christmas cards!
Card is 5" x 7" cut from white Colorbok cardstock. The Martha Stewart Holidays paper is a leftover piece from another project.
Cricut cartridge is Trim the Tree! I bought this cartridge last year and decided I should try one of the images! These are pretty, yet intricate images. Using the larger card size, I cut the tree image at 5.50". Choosing the paper for the tree background posed a problem. Would you believe I cut a green, gold, and white image! I decided to use the white image.
Other supplies include Recollections red gemstones used to decorate the tree. Star button at the top of the tree was in my stash. I added a bow made with DMC Memory Thread.
Creative Charms- Happy Christmas.

Visit BBTB2 to see the beautiful and inspiring projects by the design team. For more information, please visit the individual blogs and leave a little love!
Now it is your turn to play along with us! Remember the tree must be a Cricut cut and please mention in your blog post which cartridge you used. One person will be chosen to receive the Project of the Week badge!

Thanks for stopping by today! Your comments are appreciated!

Sentimentals Lock and Key

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

We have been having a very rainy weekend in my area. I was able to play with the Cricut and one of the older Cricut cartridges. When I saw the challenge at Papercraft Star to use Locks and/or Keys, I thought it was time to bring Sentimentals out of hiding. Papers are from the 12" x 12" double-sided K&Company Ancestry Com paper pad. Love this paper!
Cricut Sentimentals:
Page 36 - Using the card feature, the card is cut at 5". The key shape opening is cut out of the front of the card. I backed the opening with a coordinating paper. An envelope image is also available on the same page. However I cut my card a bit too large for the envelope to be cut on a 12"x12" paper. Cut and learn! Next time, I will determine the card size first!
Using the Phrase feature, Key to my Heart is cut 1.37".
Page 35 - The lock is cut at 3". 
Other supplies include lace and heart shaped pearls from my stash. The lock is pop-dotted on the card. Inking is Versa Magic Gingerbread.

Papercraft Star - Ch. 114 Locks and Key

Hope you enjoy this card using one of the favorite older cartridges!
