All Spruced Up

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I enjoy making Christmas cards! Can you tell! It seems that I need to start earlier in the year with Christmas card making than waiting until December. Here is another card using a Cricut cut that I have not used before. Finished card measures 5" x 6 1/2" cream card stock. Patterned papers are K&Company.

Cricut Cartridges:
Holiday Cards 28- Christmas Tree Cute Card is cut 7.85" wide x 5.5" high from Recollections red cardstock. I hand cut the inside layer from a K&Company patterned paper. Hand cut areas of solid paper were also used for the backing of the stars and the white areas. After looking at the finished card, I decided I wanted a larger card. Yes I did! I cut the front off the card and layered it on a 5" x 6 1/2" cream card. This gave me more space to fill with more pretty papers! I frayed a piece of green dot paper for the bottom layer of the card.
Winter Frolic - All Spruced Up is cut 3" wide.

Martha Stewart Swirling Lace edge punch is used on the green tree patterned paper. I added pearls and a cream crinkle ribbon bow for the finishing touch! I am pleased with the finished card even if it did take extra steps to achieve!

Cricut Kitsch Snowman

Welcome to Glenda's Cards

I am back with another Christmas card! Playing along with a few challenges, the front of the card is mostly white. The card measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". White Colorbok cardstock is used. I have problems with taking a photograph of a white card. Not sure if the camera/operator did well with this one.
Cricut Cartridges: 
Christmas Kitsch - Snowman Simple Cut is cut at 2.88" wide 4.50" high. For the layer, I used a scrap of light blue patterned paper from Recollections Happy Holidays. I added a little inking on the snowman. Snowman is pop dotted on the card.
Cuttlebug - Sledding folder is used on the base mat of the card.

Inside of the card!

For the inside, I added a bit of color with the patterned paper from Happy Holidays paper pad. Merry Christmas which is also found on Christmas Kitsch cartridge is cut 3.75" wide. Love the font!
A simple card but I think it turned out nicely.

Decorating with the Greens

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

December has arrived and I have been working on a few Christmas cards! Card is 5" x 6 1/2"white card stock. Patterned background paper is from K&Company EB Visions of Christmas paper pad. These papers are so pretty and sometimes I hate to cut pretty papers. I chose this paper to give a night time look for the card. Solid papers are from my scrap stash. Gold papers are a shiny paper.

Cricut Cartridges:
Christmas/Noel - This is one of my favorite Christmas cartridges! There are so many pretty images.
The main focus is the door. It is cut 4.5" high. Wreath on door is cut 1.50" wide. To accent the door, I added two of the village lampposts which are cut 2.5" high. Using the same wreath image as on the door, I cut two wreaths at 1.02" wide x 1.00" high to hang on the lampposts. Star is cut 1.75" high. When thinking of Christmas, I am always reminded of the Beautiful Star of Bethlehem!
Jolly Holidays - Merry Christmas is cut 3.50" wide.

 Inside of Card

Inside the card is layered with a pretty scrap paper from Martha Stewart Holidays paper pad. The Holly Card image is also from Christmas cartridge. It is cut 4.50" wide. For the perfect finishing touch, I used one of the pretty stamps from Cardz TV "Home for the Christmas" set. I was so happy to have recently been drawn winner for her stamps! Thank you so much Mary!
