My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 110 Flower Power!

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It is time for another fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts! Challenge 110 is Flower Power chosen by our talented Peachy. We are to feature 3 Dimensional flowers on our cards/projects. Of course, I had to play with my Cricut machine for my card!
Cricut Cartridges:
Cricut Craft Room - My card is made using the Mother's Day Card 13 as the card base. This cut was a free image in the CCR. Many thanks to Cricut for making these wonderful images available to us at no charge. I love this card cut! I cut the card at 4.25" from white Colorbok cardstock.
Mother's Day Bouquet - Flower 8 is cut at varying sizes.
Cindy Loo - Page 40 - Flourish is cut at 2" with one using the reverse feature.
Florals Embellished - Page 28 - Phrase used on inside of the card is cut 1.75".
The pretty patterned papers are K&Company Watercolor Bouquet scraps that were leftover from previous projects!
Martha Stewart punch for the greenery.

A little Sunshine!

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I had fun using my Cricut and these cute cuts to make a little scene. This will be a Mother's Day card for my MIL who loves gardening and flowers! The card is cut 5" x 6 1/2" from Recollection Cream cardstock. A corner punch was used to round the top edges of the card.
Cricut Cartridges:
Celebrate With Flourish - Sun is cut 2.25".
Bloom - Fence and flowers are cut 3". Word "Bloom" is cut 1".
Cricut Craft Room Basics - Butterfly is cut .75". 
Papers are from the scrap stash and I tried to use several patterned papers for interest!

Cricut Happy Mother's Day

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I am sharing a Mother's Day card using one of the free images which was available in the Cricut Craft Room recently. While the image was free, I cut a couple more cards to have available in my stash. I do see it is available again in CCR if you are interested in trying this pretty cut.
Cricut Cartridge:
Mother's Day Cards 06 was cut 5.5" using white Colorbok cardstock. I chose to use a pretty floral patterned paper to layer behind the words. This is another one of those gorgeous papers that I did not want to cut, but now I am happy that I did! 
Martha Stewart - Using Martha Stewart Lace Scallop Heart punch I offset a pink and green heart which is pop-dotted on the card. 
A crinkled ribbon bow and Recollection gemstones add the finishing touches.
