Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I have been building another snowman! This is one of my favorite Cricut snowman! We seldom see snow in my area so I can only play with paper. This card measures approximately 5 1/2" x 5 1/4". Papers are from the scrap stash and I still see lots more paper in that stash. This all started with the frame!

Cricut Cartridges:
Disney Pooh and Friends - Snowflake frame is cut 5.6" wide x 5.25" high. This consists of 3 layers that I used - blue, white, and red. This is my first time to use this frame cut, and I am glad I did!
Christmas Kitsch - Snowman is cut 3" high. This snowman is the one for the shaped card in Design Space. I only cut the snowman because I wanted the layer colors for this image. Snowman is pop-dotted on card.
3 Birds on Parade - Phrase - Baby it's Cold Outside is cut 4.50" wide. This is used inside the card.

Cuttlebug Snowflakes is used on the white mat behind the snowman. I cut that mat by hand and place it behind the frame. Some cut out snowflakes are randomly used on the mat.

Botanical Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

While browsing around in Cricut Design Space, I noticed some new cards that have recently been added to the subscription. I chose one from Botanical Cards and this is my play with it! My finished card measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". Double-sided patterned papers are from K&Company.

Cricut Cartridges:
Botanical Cards - Flower Card - I used only the overlay of the card. It has flower and leaves shapes that will be cut out, but I used the Contour function to eliminate those images. The overlay is cut 4.25" wide from white Colorbok cardstock.
Anna's Flourish Cards and Embellishments - Sentiment is done with the Cricut Gemstone Blue Pen using the Write feature.
Spring Cottage - Forget Me Not flowers are cut 2.12" wide x 1.34" high. Flowers are pop-dotted on the overlay.
Gypsy Wanderings - Happy Birthday is cut 3.50" wide.

Crinkled ribbon bow is added to complete the look.

Simple card, but I think the recipient will enjoy it!
