Happy Graduation

 Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

School is quickly coming to an end for this year. I know the kids and teachers are happy! I needed a few graduation cards for family and friends. I was happy to play with a new Cricut cartridge.
Papers are Recollections and Colorbok.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Gracious Giftables - Graduation Holder and envelope are cut 18.67" wide x 10.499" high.
Congratulations is a print and cut image that is cut at 2.25" wide x .778" high.
A Little Something is printed on an inserted shape that measures 3.5" wide x 3" high. I used a Precise Pilot V5 red pen in my Cricut Explore for the writing. I will hand write a personal message. A gift card or cash can be inserted in the little red pocket.
Recess - Grad Hat is cut 3" wide x 1.854" high. This image is used on the envelope.

For a bit more detail, I added some dash marks with a Gelly Roll pen on the front of the card.

Elephant Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing a card that I made for my granddaughter. She really likes elephants and when I saw this card image, I knew she would like it! Of course, purple works great for her! I used white Recollections paper for the card base. Other papers are from scrap stash. Good way to use some of that growing stack!

This cartridge was in a Cricut March Digital Mystery Box.

Cricut Cartridge:
Rob & Bob Animal Crackers Collection - Card is cut 8.5" wide x 5.25" high in Cricut Design Space.

It is a simple card and qoes together quickly. Hardest part may be choosing the paper colors for the images.
