Die Cuttin' Divas - Ch. 324 Sketch

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Happy 4th of July to you! Hope you are having a great day!

Today begins another fun challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas! First Tuesday of the month and that means Ch. 324 is a Sketch challenge. I chose to use the pretty sketch for a Patriotic card. Card measures 6 1/2" wide x 5" high and is cut from white cardstock. Patterned paper is leftover from a previous project.

Cricut Cartridges:
I cut the layers for my card using Insert Shapes in Cricut Design Space.
Red layer is cut 6.25" wide x 4.75" high. Two white layers are each cut 2.75" wide x 4.50" high. Two patterned paper layers are each cut 2.50" wide x 4.25" high.
Independence Day - Hat is cut 3.25" wide x 3.159" high.
Holidays Through the Years Iron On - Using contour feature, the stars on the image were deleted, leaving only the word Freedom. Freedom was cut 1.932" wide x .444" high. 
Banners - Banner is cut 3.266" wide x .754" high. 
Inside the card:
Insert Shapes - Blue layer is cut 6.25" wide x 4.75" high. White layer is cut 4.25" wide x 4" high.
Cake Basics - Happy is cut 2.964" wide x 1.19" high
Independence Day - 4th of July is cut 2.521" wide x 2.547" high.

Cuttlebug Stars embossing folder is used on the hat. Stars are the cut outs from the hat band. Hat and Banner are pop-dotted on card. A little Colorbox blue inking adds the finishing touch.

First Heart Flip Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Happy Sunday! Hope your holiday weekend is going great!

I enjoy working with Anna Griffin Cricut cartridges! I missed the first HSN chance on purchasing the Anna Griffin Fantastic Flip Cards cartridge but recently was able to purchase through Cricut. This is a digital cartridge with 10 pretty flip style cards. Anna's print and cut floral images and wonderful sentiments are gorgeous! The Cricut makes it so easy! Now choosing images and papers can be quite the task!

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna Griffin Fantastic Flip Cards  - Heart flip card is cut 11.44" wide x 7.014" high. This is the card size without the included envelope image.
Double flower is cut 3" wide x 2.614" high. I cut two of these sizes with one image on flip to be stacked. Pop-dots are placed in between the two images.
Single flower is cut 2.25" wide for the larger one on the lower right.Top flower is cut 1.95" wide x 1.741" high.
Smaller flower is cut 1.25" wide x 1.248" high. This flower is used inside the card.

Sentiment To Say Hello is printed on the Pink heart.

Love how this card turned out! I plan to do a series with each of the ten card styles. Just had to cut the Heart out first!
