Anniversary Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
 I enjoy playing with the images from a couple of my recently purchased Cricut digital cartridges.The two Anna Griffin cartridges have pretty images and sentiments. I have trouble deciding what to do. I really like the sentiments--there are ten different ones on each of the two cartridges. I love it when I can buy such a great cartridge at a sale price! For my card, I chose one of the card features and added the sentiment with the Cricut Explore writing feature.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Flourish Cards and Embellishments - Card cut size is 4.98" wide, 7.02" high from white Recollections paper. The decorative top is cut from lavender Recollections paper. I used the midnight pen for writing the sentiment on the face of the card.
Anna's Garden Cards and Embellishments - I cut 3 flower icon at 2" wide using the white and lavender paper. One flower is used inside the card. Two pearls complete the card.
Phrases- Happy Anniversary is cut 6" wide used inside card. There is space to write a personal message!

 It is a lot of gluing on these cards, but I think they turn out pretty!

Hello Pink and Lavender

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

After seeing the pretty and inspiring projects from some challenge blogs, I wanted to play along! Pink and Lavender --Yes, some of my favorite colors! Usually I choose a Cricut image first, but playing with a sketch and colors, it took me awhile to decide on the Cricut image. There are so many pretty images available. This is the results!
Card is 5" x 6 1/2" white cardstock. Of course, I had to use some of my favorite K&Company papers! I sure need to be looking for another one of the pretty paper pads. This is my second, maybe third, pad. Can you tell I love these papers!!

Cricut Cartridge is Lacy Labels. The Hello label is cut 3.42" wide, 3.78" high. It is pop-dotted on the card for added dimension. Can you believe I only used one Cricut image! 

Adhesive pearl strand and purple crochet flower are from Recollections. Small pink paper flowers were found at a flea market. Edges of background papers are frayed.

Anna Griffin Butterfly Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today's card is inspired by Anna Griffin Garden Butterfly Card. Anna's card can be made using the Make It Now feature on Cricut Design Space. I do not own all the images that are shown on Anna's card, so I was unable to use that feature.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Garden Cards and Embellishments - Card is cut from white cardstock at 10" wide- measures 5"x7". I cut two blush pink liners-one for face of card behind the butterfly cutouts and one for inside of card. The three butterflies are cut 2.75" wide, 2.50" wide, and 2.25" wide which look larger than those on the featured card. The phrase Life Is A Journey is also on this cartridge. It is written with the midnight pen on the label.
Sophisticated Soiree - Flourish Label is cut from white cardstock at 3.76" wide and from the pink at 3.92" wide.
Butterflies and Sentiment Label are pop-dotted on the card. I added Petaloo burlap blossoms to accent the card. The pink heart formed bow is Memory Thread.

I really love the sentiments that are on Anna's Garden Cards and Embellishments. I have used the Life is a Journey sentiment on another card. This card will work well for a bridal or anniversary card.
