Cricut Imagine Birthday Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

With all the pretty available Cricut images, I decided to use one of the Print and Cut images for this card. I never bought the Imagine machine and I am happy the images are available in Cricut Design Space. My card measures 5 1/2" x 4". 

Cricut Cartridges:
Imagine More - Rooster and chick is cut 3" high. This image used the print and cut feature. I like the pretty patterned paper look.
Songbird - Spring chicken is cut 2.65" wide x 1.04" high.
Ribbons and Rosettes - Grass Border is cut 5.25" wide x .47" high.
Classroom Feb-March - Happy birthday with balloons is cut 4.25" wide. This sentiment is used inside the card.

Inside of the card.

It is a simple card but I think it will work fine for the birthday lady who love chickens!

Folded Paper Frame Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing a Folded Paper Frame card that I made using the tutorial at Split Coast Stampers. The frame starts with a 4 1/4" square of patterned paper. I chose pretty double-sided patterned papers from a K&Company pad which were left over from previous projects.  After scoring and folding, the square adds a 3D effect to the card. My cream card stock card measures 5" x 6 1/2".
Of course, I had to add pretty Cricut images to my card!

Cricut Cartridges:
Flower Shoppe - The flower is cut at 2", 1.75", 1.50", 1.25", and 1". After a spritz of water and partial drying, I slightly bent and curled the petals to form the flower. A gold gemstone is glued in the middle of the flower. I think the flower looks good in the frame.
Elegant Embellishments - Butterfly is cut 2" wide using 4 patterned papers.
Anna's Flourish Cards and Embellishments - Perfect Day Sentiment is printed with the Cricut Copper Pen on an inserted rectangle shape. 
Elegant Edges - Heart scallop rectangle label is cut 4.53" wide.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards - Happy Mother's Day sentiment is written on the heart scallop rectangle label with the Cricut Copper Pen. This image is used inside the card.
