Mother's Day Explosion Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
I have another Mother's Day card to share with you. After viewing pretty explosion cards and some are called pop out explosion cards, I wanted to try making one. There are many tutorials available on the construction of this card style.
My project started with a card base cut at 4.50" x 9", when folded makes a 4.50" x 4.50" card. The pretty double-sided papers are from Anna Griffin Rose Medley pack. The paper insert is cut 8.50" x 8.50". This is the folded part that is used inside.

Cricut Cartridges:
Fantastic Flip Cards - Heart Embellishment is cut 3.285" x 3.054". I cut 2 of the cut out hearts and one of the solid hearts. Sentiment "I Love You" is written on an inserted 3.5" wide x 2.25" rectangle of the pink solid paper which is used inside the card.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards - Happy Mother's Day is written with the Cricut Midnight pen on the scallop pink heart embellishment.
Anna's Print then Cut Library - Rose is used on the Happy Mother's Day heart.
I cut a 1.25" wide green band to wrap around the card. 
Cricut Create a Critter - Word Mom. This is applied to the second heart embellishment. It is pop-dotted on the band. 

Outside of card with the band.

I really like the way this turned out and of course, I love the pinks and greens! Hope you enjoy!

Mother's Day Window Box Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
Yay! I received the new Anna Griffin digital cartridge!  Of course, I had to play! Papers are from Anna Griffin Amelie.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Window Box Cards - The box card image comes into design space at 10.406" wide x 8.753" high. The box is cut from the double-sided yellow paper.
Large scroll embellishment is cut 2.603' wide x 4.125" high. I also cut a smaller scroll but did not record the size.
Flowers are print and cut and turned out so pretty. I used geraniums, roses, and camellias of varying sizes.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards - Happy Mother's Day is written on the white mat using the Cricut Honeysuckle Pen. It does not show well, but I liked the pen color with the paper colors.

Anna Griffin Matelasse embossing folder is used on the white mats on the sides of the boxes for added dimension.

I love the way this turned out. I will be making more of this card style. Hope you enjoy!
