A Folk Art Festival Clock

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I have been hibernating in my craft room for the past few days while my area has been dealing with wintry weather. Thankfully it was rain/sleet/snow and no freezing rain so we had no problems with electricity outage. I did not see a snowflake at my house, but some areas close by received 2-3 inches of snow. Snow is seldom seen where I live, so I know there were excited children who were seeing snow for the first time and some of the older folks were just as excited too! I probably would have built a snowman or snowlady!

What better way to pass my time than to play with my Cricut Explore! My card measures  5" x 6 1/2" and is white cardstock. The pretty pattern papers are from DCWV Pressed Petals paper pack.

Cricut Cartridges:
Folk Art Festival -Clock is cut 2.50"h.
Elegant Edges - Scallop Mats are cut 3.5" h. from brown Recollections paper and a beige paper from the paper pack. I hand cut the rectangle white and brown mats.
Home Decor - Memories cut 2.75"w. I debated on the sentiment to use on my card with the clock. Sometimes we think we have all the time in the world, but soon that particular time or event becomes a memory. Thinking of sweet memories, this could be used as an anniversary card or maybe a birthday card.

A small crochet doily and pearls finish the look.

I used some of the left over patterned papers for the inside of the card. I will add the sentiment later.

Thinking of You!

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing a "Thinking of you" card that may brighten someone's day! The card is cut from white Colorbok cardstock and measures 5" x 7" folded. My pretty patterned K&Company papers are left over from previous projects. I like to work with patterned papers and combine as many as I can on a project. I frayed and inked the background papers.
Cricut Cartridges:
Cindy Loo - Sentiment "Thinking of you" cut  2.41"w  x 1.27"h
Elegant Edges - White and pink oval mats cut 4"h.
Kate's ABC's - Mason Jar cut 2.4"h. This image has several butterflies included, but I edited the image cut so I could have only the jar. I used the blue paper and topped it with the pretty floral paper and added a little heart to the jar. Finishing touch is the twine bow.

Other supplies include an eyelet lace with pink ribbon woven through it, pearls, and a pretty Spare Parts pink paper flower.
