My Sheri Crafts Ch.164 Long Time No See

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Happy Saturday everyone! It is time for another fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts! Raquel has chosen Ch. 164 - Long Time No See! She asked that we create any project that falls into the category of Hello, Thinking of you, Miss You, etc.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Garden Cards and Embellishments -  I cut the card using Cricut Design Space Make It Now feature. The card measures 5" x 7". Papers are white Colorbok and the Paper Company Purple/Lt. Purple double sided paper. This is a very pretty paper with different fiber colors running through it. You may see a bit of red.
I choose to add two extra mums which are cut from the dark purple, layered on white. These flowers were placed down the center of the card.
Elegant Embellishments - Tag is cut 3.50" wide from the purple paper and 3.34" wide from the white paper. Using the Write feature in Cricut Design Space, Thinking of You was written on my selected tag.
Note: The Make It Now photo of the card shows a sentiment and tag, but those images are not given in the Make It Now instructions. 

Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch is used on the strip in center of card.

Be sure to stop by My Sheri Crafts to see all the pretty inspiration from the design team and our guest designer. For more details on the projects, please visit the individual blogs and leave some love!!

Now it is your time to play along with us. We look forward to seeing your projects!

Birthday Card - Boot

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I enjoy making birthday cards! After viewing the cute sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches for this week, I am playing along with the sketch for this birthday card. Card base is brown cardstock and measures 5" x 6 1/2". The pretty patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye Simply Beautiful paper pad..paper that I have had for a long time. 

Cricut Cartridges:
Old West - I bought this cartridge several years ago and this is my first time to use it. Boot is cut 2.75" high. The cut image leaves little cut marks so I tried to make little dashes using the Gelly Roll white pen. The marks were so hard to see on the brown paper. Not so perfect, but after all it is a handmade card! Lasso is cut 1.25" wide. Two boots are used inside the card--those were cut 1.75" high.
Just Because - Just Kickin' Back is cut 2.75" wide.
Cricut Classic Font - Happy Birthday is cut 4.25" wide. It's Your Day is cut 3" high. Both phrases are used inside the card. 

Martha Stewart Ribbon Loop edge punch is used on the mat inside the card.

Swiss Dots folder is used on the background mat under the boot.
Diamonds in the Rough folder is used on the two mats.

Happy Birthday Pop Up Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

With several family members having upcoming birthdays, I have been busy with birthday cards. While searching for birthday images in Cricut Craft Room, I noticed the Happy Birthday pop up card. This card is also available as a Make It Now project. I chose that option and added my spin on it! I went along with similar colors because the recipient loves these colors too!

Cricut Cartridges:
Simple Pop-Up Cards - Happy birthday card and envelope are cut using the Make it Now feature. Measures approximately 5" x 5".
Paper Lace 2 - I Love You heart is cut 3" high from a white cardstock and layered on the yellow paper.
Monogram Motifs - K is cut 3" wide. I wanted something pretty and personal on the outside of the card. I love the monogram letters in this cartridge. The heart is cut 2" wide and pop-dotted on the envelope for closure.

 Outside of the card and envelope.

Die Cuttin Divas - Ch. 229 Celebrate It! Any Occasion!

I like the way this turned out! Hope you enjoy!
