Cricut Sentimentals

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
Brrrr...It's is cold outside! Such a pretty day yesterday. Temperature was 80 degrees at 3 p.m. but with this current winter blast, the temperature plunged to 37 degrees by 10 p.m. last night. We had sleet/freezing rain in the area during the night, but thankfully not too much at my house. We have not had the weather in the South like many of you have been experiencing all winter. I am ready for Spring! I took the opportunity to play with my Cricut and made a card for a few challenges!
My card is cut using Cricut Sentimentals cartridge and pretty double-sided K&Company paper. I have not used the cartridge in a couple of years. I really like the hand with envelope image and previously used that image back in 2010, so I thought it was time to use it again! Surprise! All of my images are cut from the Sentimentals cartridges!

Cricut Sentimentals:
Page 66 - Pretty shaped Card is cut 10"w. 
Page 42- 3 Scalloped circles cut 2.25" are used for the background.
Page 27 - Hand is cut 1.50" h. Hand is pop-dotted on the rectangle tag.
Page 66- Tag is cut 2.75" h. Using the Cricut Explore, text box and write feature, the words For You are written on the tag. This tag is pop-dotted on the circles for dimension.
Page 71 - With Love is used inside of the card.
Cuttlebug folders Script, Swiss Dots, and Heart Blocks are used on the green scalloped circles.
Other supplies include a pink ribbon/lace trim from my stash, Recollections rhinestone embellishments, and DMC Memory thread which was shaped into two hearts and made into a bow on the tag.
