My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 171 Christmas Spirit

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today begins a new challenge at My Sheri Crafts which will be our last challenge for this year! Challenge 171 is Christmas Spirit. Our design team sister Sandy asked us to create old fashion/vintage Christmas cards or projects. 

My card is 5" x 6 1/2" cream cardstock. Patterned papers are from the Paper Studio Yuletide Joy paper pack. Solid papers are from the scrap stash. 

Cricut Cartridges:
Santa's Village - Santa in chair is cut 3.5" wide. This is a print and cut image. I never bought a Cricut Imagine machine, but I love the vintage look images on this cartridge. So glad it is available in Cricut Design Space subscription.
Create a Friend - The word Santa's is taken from the phrase Santa's Workshop and cut at 2.25" wide. I added a text box and used letters from Cricut Font and Basic Shape for the word List - cut 1.75" wide.
Christmas Kitsch - ho ho ho are taken from the Ho Ho Ho card and cut 3" wide. This gives the three layers of colors. Merry Christmas is cut 4.50" wide. This sentiment is used on inside of the card.

A green crinkle ribbon bow from Little Scrap Pieces adds the finishing touch!

Double Twisted Easel Thanksgiving Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Brrr! It is cold in my area this morning! I am not ready for cold weather but maybe I will have more time to play with my Cricut. With Thankgiving Day almost here, I decided to make one more card. This is my play with the Double Twisted Easel card style. If you have not tried one of these cards, you can find the tutorial at Split Coast Stampers. The card starts with a 8" square of Kraft cardstock.
When folded the card will easily fit in a business sized envelope. I think it will be a pretty display for Thanksgiving. Patterned papers are K&Company. Solid papers are from scrap stash.

Cricut Cartridges:
Thanksgiving Table Decor- Cornucopia/mat is cut 3.50" wide. I cut a duplicate mat for the pilgrim hat. Mats are pop-dotted on card.
Autumn Celebrations - Pilgrim Hat is cut 2.75" wide.
Classroom Oct-Nov - Happy Thanksgiving is cut 4.25" wide. It is placed on hand cut mats and pop-dotted on the card. Gelly roll pen used on the turkey for a little detail.

Cuttlebug folder Swiss Dots is used on the hat and Houndstooth is used on the cornucopia. A few extra leaves are randomly placed on the base of card.
