My first Cuttlebug Brocade Window card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

My Cuttlebug folders arrived! Whenever I saw the great sale on some older Cuttlebug folders at Cricut, I jumped at the chance to purchase the Emboss Plus 5" x 7" Brocade Window at $1.99. I wanted to buy more of the Emboss Plus folders, but they were already sold out.
This is my first card using the Brocade Window and I really like the looks! Card is 5" x 7" cut from a cream Recollections cardstock. The cut and embossed window is from The Paper Studio Light Burlap. For the window opening I used The Paper Studio Eloise Floral and the flowers are also cut from this paper.
Cricut Cartridge:
Mother's Day Bouquet - Flowers are cut using Flower 8 at varying sizes. 
Martha Stewart Fern punch used for the greenery. I do not know the name of that punch so I call it greenery punch. If you know the name, please tell me!
Like most of us, I have bought crafting items that I seem to hoard!  Last year, I bought pretty paper pad, brads, buttons, die cuts, and trinkets of Bo Bunny Little Miss collection. For today's project, I chose to use the dress form and the green scroll die cuts from the those colors! Dress form is pop-dotted on the card.
Other supplies from my stash include the Venice Lace Collection motif, crochet doily, the button that is in the doily and the Love button which is pop-dotted on the card. These buttons have been stashed a long time. Recollection Pearls and Michael's ribbon trim for the bow complete the look. Of course, lots of inking!

BBTB2 - Flowers
Celebrate the Occasion - Ch. 112  3 Flowers, 2 buttons, 1 Ribbon,
CWC - Ch. 134 Lace
Paper Playtime - Ch. 10 Button or Brads  May 13 - May 26
The Shabby Tea Room - Ch. 166 Sweet SpringTime- Use pink, green, white or cream, and a sewing element

Hope you enjoy this card! Maybe you are inspired to use some of those crafty items that you have been hoarding! Thanks for your visits and comments!

Happy Mother's Day!

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Happy Mother's Day! 
I'm sharing a few variations on a card that I recently posted. 
This is the free Mother's Day Card 06 that was posted in the Cricut Craft Room. Of course, I had to go with Red and Purple for a few Red Hat Ladies! Flowers are from Cricut Mother's Day Bouquet. Each of the backgrounds is embossed with a different Cuttlebug folder.
Hope you have great day!
