Merry Christmas

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Christmas Eve is a very warm day in my area! Well actually a hot and humid 72 degrees! 
Hope you are ready for all your Christmas festivities! I have completed some baking and will finish the meal tomorrow morning. Now I have a few minutes to post a Christmas card that I finished.
Papers are cream Recollections card stock, Paper Studio Christmas Traditions foil paper used under the front of the card, and some reds and greens from the scrap stash.

Lace Poinsettia Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

During the recent Black Friday sale at Cricut, I treated myself to three of the newer Anna Griffin cartridges. I love her work! I was so happy when the cartridges arrived. Love the Christmas Cards!

Using the Anna's Christmas Cards cartridge and the Make It Now feature on Cricut Design Space, the card I am sharing is the first one I made. Gold foil paper for the background is from The Paper Studio Christmas Traditions 2011. Had that a long time!! Other papers are from my scrap stash! Card measures approximately 5 1/2" x 4" when folded. I added my extra touches with the red crinkle bow and red and gold Stickles on the leaves and flowers.

Inside of card.

Cricut Christmas Kitsch is used for the Merry Christmas sentiment. I cut it 3.50" wide.

Card and Envelope!

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

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Twas a few days before Christmas and I am still playing with the Cricut! This card is cut using a stripe paper from Craft Smith Olde Time Christmas paper pad. While shopping recently I saw this pretty paper pad and just had to buy it. It has a linen look to the paper. Guess I have a weakness for papers! Maybe Santa will bring more papers!

Cricut Cartridge:
Christmas Kitsch - Santa Card is cut 19.16 wide x 7" high. This size includes an envelope. When folded the card will measure 5 1/2" high x 4 1/4" wide. I added a Gelly roll pen doodling on the hat.

 Inside the card!

For the inside of the card, I cut a piece of the designer paper to line up with the front of the card.
The pretty stamp is from Cardz TV Home for Christmas which I won recently at CardZ TV. I think the stamp added the finishing touch. I used handcut mats--red larger mat is cut 3.25" x 2.25" and white mat is cut 3" x 2". In placing the sentiment mat, the mat should not be showing when the card is folded.

Outside of card.

Hope you enjoy the jolly Santa card! I made a similar card last Christmas. You can view it here.
