Sending You Love Mother's Day

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing a Mother's Day card. Since losing my Mom in February, this type of card is kinda hard to make. Card is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" white cardstock. I am using patterned scrap papers from DCWV Fresh Floral Stack and solids are Recollections. I am using Mary's CARDZ TV Sketch 8. I will be giving this card to my grandkids to give their Mom.

Cricut Cartridge:
Using Insert Shapes in Cricut Design Space, the floral paper is cut 4" wide x 5.25" high. The purple circle pattern paper is cut 1.5" wide x 5.25" high. Yellow strip is cut .75" wide x 5.25" high. Green mat is cut 2.5" wide x 3.25" high and the white mat is cut 2.25" wide x 3" high.
Spring Fling  - Flower Bunch is cut 2.21" wide.
Florals Embellished  - Happy Mother's Day is cut 3.5" wide x 1.89" high. This is used inside the card.

Sentiment "Sending you love" is from Mary's Encouraging Thoughts stamp set at CARDZ TV. I used a purple ink. Thank you Mary for the pretty stamps and sketches!

Die Cuttin' Divas - Ch. 313 Any Shape Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today begins a new fun challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas. Ch. 313 is Any Shape Card! 
As you know, I use my Cricut Explore machine a lot. Cricut cartridges and Cricut Access have a variety of shaped cards. The hardest part is selecting which card to try! I chose a card that I have not made previously. Papers are Recollections and White Colorbok.

Cricut Cartridges:
Crazy Cute Cards - Mother's Day Bouquet Card is cut 22.39" wide x 14.71" high. This also includes the envelope. The finished card measures 5 1/8" wide x 4 3/4" high. I made two cards, one focusing on purple flowers and the other on pink flowers.
Cindy Loo - Thinking of you is cut 3.50" wide x 1.84" high. This is used inside the card.
