My Sheri Crafts Ch. 148 - Let It Snow

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
Now that the holidays are over and a new year has started, we are back with more fun challenges at My Sheri Crafts. Challenge 148 is Let It Snow! Sheri asked us to create a project that includes a snowflake. I have not seen any snowflakes in my area, but by watching the news, I see that many of you have.
I recently purchased the digital copy of Merry and Bright so I wanted to try the luminary box. I made this project using Cricut Expression and Cricut Craft Room. The box measures 4 1/4x2 7/8" and has 1 1/2' opening--just the right size for a small flameless candle. Paper is Recollection Starry Night. I added a piece of vellum behind the snowflake. I like the way this project turned out. Below is a side view of the box.
My Cricut Explore machine arrived after I completed the luminary. I just had to start playing with the Design Space so I quickly found the Nativity snowflake from When It's Cold Outside cartridge.
The image is cut at w 4.53" x h 4.67". The Explore cut it beautifully! White and patterned papers are left over from Christmas projects. I think this would make a nice ornament.
Now it is your turn to play along us. Be sure to visit My Sheri Crafts to see all the lovely projects by the design team and our guest designer. For more details, please visit the designers' blogs.
Thank you for your visit and comment!

Warm Wishes

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
Brrr! It has been cold in my area! Hope everyone is staying safe and warm with all the winter weather that is happening throughout the country. Staying inside has given me time to play with the Cricut Explore and Design Space. I have enjoyed playing with some of the free images that was available with the Explore purchase.
The white cardstock card measures 5"x 6 1/2". The pretty patterned paper is Paper Studio Pine St. Square from Hobby Lobby. I really did not need to buy more paper but I could not resist a few more Christmas and Winter pads. Being on sale just convinced me! Remaining papers are left over from other projects. This is my play with the sketch from Die Cuttin Divas.

Cricut Cartridges:
Winter Frolic - cup
Cricut Craft Room Basics - 2 Oval mats
Country Life - Warm Wishes and shadow
Holiday Cakes - mittens

Cuttlebug Embossing folder Sledding is used on the white mat and the mat is pop-dotted on the card.
Lace and pearls are from my stash of supplies.

I am playing along with the following challenges:
Die Cuttin Divas - Ch.197 January Sketch Challenge
FCCB - Ch. 242 - Winter Fun.  Always fun to have a cup of chocolate or coffee in winter.
The Shabby Tea Room - Ch. 243 Baby It is Cold Outside - Photo Inspiration

BBTB2 - Favorite Cricut Cut. Gosh, it is hard to choose a favorite cut. I do like tea cups and have made several projects including tea cups. However, there is one image cut that I love and use on each card that I make. You will not see it on the front, but can find it on the back of the card. It is the G monogram from A Child's Year. I use that as a personal touch! Then I write Glenda's Cards and add the year on the monogram.

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you enjoy my project!
