Fall Pumpkin

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing a Pumpkin/Fall card. It can be used for several different occasions. The card measures 5" x 6 1/2" and is cut from Recollection cardstock. White cardstock is Colorbox. The pretty patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye Simply Beautiful paper pad. I love these papers but they are very thin and difficult to cut. I had to cut the images several times to get a good cut, but with a new Cricut blade and a larger size image, the Explore worked good.

The Fall pumpkin image is Miss Kate's Cuttables SVG file that was free recently. I love this pumpkin with the layers! Using my Cricut Explore, I cut the image at 4" high. I tried at 3.50" high several times but the leaves were torn during the cut.

I am playing with Sketch 19 at Paper Play Sketches.  Be sure to visit Janis's blog for a new weekly sketch each Wednesday. The sketches are always pretty and such fun to play with.

For extra touches, I  added brads that have been in my supplies for years. The pretty brown crinkle ribbon is from Karen at Little Scrap Pieces. Thank you Karen for the pretty ribbons!

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
After a little play time with my Cricut,  I made this cute Halloween card for a friend. The card measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". Papers are scraps from left over projects. I am using Mary's Sketch 5 at CARDZ TV

Cricut Cartridges:
Celebrate with Flourish  -  Pumpkin is cut 3.50" wide.
Phrases - Boo is cut 1.96" wide x 1" high. The image includes flourishes but I did not cut those.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards - Happy Halloween is used inside the card. It is written with the Midnight pen. Using the insert shapes feature, I unlocked the square and changed it into a 5" wide x 2.50" high rectangle.
