Christmas Poinsettia

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It has definitely been Winter in my area for the past couple of days! Our high temperature was 73 degrees a few days ago but the cold front came barreling through with sleet/freezing rain. Our temperature plunged. It has struggled to get to 32 degrees today. I really do not like cold weather and it is suppose to be about 17 tonight. So what do I do!  I stay in my craft room and play with my Cricut machine! Do you realize how soon Christmas will be here again!! I am trying to get a head start on my Christmas cards this year!
This card measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and is white card stock. Papers are left over from previous projects.

Cricut Cartridge:
Celebrate with Flourish - Poinsettia is cut 2.75" wide x 1.96" high.

Cuttlebug Script Folder is used on the red mat. I added gold gemstones on the poinsettias.

A simple card, but I think it is a good start on my Christmas cards! Be sure to check the following Christmas Card challenges listed below for weekly inspiration!

Die Cuttin Divas - Ch. 298 Sketch

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Happy New Year everyone!
I have exciting news to share with you! I am now a design team member at Die Cuttin Divas. I enjoyed participating in the challenges. Now I am looking forward to being part of this talented group of designers! Thank you so much Georgiana and team!
For the first challenge of 2017, Challenge 298 is a Sketch Challenge. 
My card measures 5" x 6 1/2" and is cut from cream card stock. Patterned papers are from K&Company Classic K Bailey paper pad that I have had for several years. The embossed tan paper is from Craft Smith Embossed Naturals paper pad.

Cricut Cartridges: I am using some of my recent purchased cartridges. I love Anna Griffin cartridges!
Anna's Soiree Lettering  - Flower is cut 3" wide x 1.81" high. It is pop-dotted on the tan paper mat.
Anna's Elegant Embellishments 2 - Love is cut 2" wide x 1.39" high from the blue and brown paper. 
For inside the card,  the tag is also cut from this cartridge at 4.50" wide x 3.07" high.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards 2 -  The sentiment Happy Birthday to You is printed with the Cricut Midnight pen on the tag mentioned above.

Cuttlebug - Anna Griffin Flower Grid Embossing folder is used on the blue strip of paper. I bought the Cricut Mystery Box recently and was so happy to find all the beautiful Anna Griffin folders and dies inside the box. This is my first card using one of the folders!
