Flowers for a Friend

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It is a beautiful day in our neighborhood today, but too wet for me to work in the yard. I think Spring has arrived. I am sharing a photo of my azaleas. Aren't they gorgeous!
Now to the fun card that I made!

I have been playing with another one of the Cricut Digital Cartridges that was in the March Mystery box. Card is 4 1/2" x 5 1/2" white cardstock.

Cricut Cartridges:
Photo Play- Happy Glamper  - This cartridge has print and cut images plus some available papers. I love this jar of flowers and knew it would be one of the first images that I would cut. 
Flowers in jar is cut 1.87" wide x 2.75" high from white Recollections card stock and pop-dotted on the blue mat.
Polaroid Frame is cut 4" wide x 5 1/4" high. This is the displayed patterned paper that is shown on the image. 
Hello Friend is cut from the polka dot paper using Karley Font.
Using Insert Shape, the blue mat is cut 3.9" wide x 5.15" high and is embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. This is place behind the patterned frame. 

 Inside of the card.

Anna Griffing Lovely Layered Cards - Happy Birthday to You is written on a 3.50" wide x 2.85" high white paper for the inside of the card.

Garden Party Birthday Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I have been playing with some of the recent Cricut digital cartridges that were in the March Mystery Box. Today I am sharing one of the cards. Papers are Recollections. 

Cricut Cartridge: 
JGoode Garden Birthday Party - Garden Birthday card is cut 8.50" wide x 5.50" high from the pink paper. An envelope is included with the card, but I ungrouped and deleted the envelope image. My cut size does not include the envelope. All layers are included with the card image except for the butterfly.
Butterfly is also from the same cartridge and is cut 2.50" wide x 1.92" high. It is pop-dotted on the card.
I used the Cricut Mignight pen for the pen work. I am unsure why no more of the pretty pen work is not seen under the pink corner embellishment. Both images are the same size. If you put the white paper with the pen work over the pink paper, you see no pink. Looking at the image in design space you see pink on top. I offset the two layers a little bit to see some of the white and black.

 View of the pretty pen work.

Cuttlebug Woven Diamonds folder is used on the yellow mat for more texture.
I added a small twine bow for extra embellishment.

For the inside of the card:
Using Insert Shapes in CCR, I cut a 4" wide x 5 1/4" high yellow rectangle. The pink rectangle is cut 3.5" wide x 3" high. 
Happy Birthday is cut 3" wide x 1.73" from purple paper and pen work is using the midnight pen.
