Happy Birthday

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
Needing a birthday card for a friend, I chose to play with my newest Cricut cartridge. Card is 5" x 7" cut from Recollections purple cardstock. Patterned papers are from Anna Griffin Amelie pad.

I have this ongoing debate about purchasing a Cricut Maker. Whenever I saw the Anna Griffin rose Maker on HSN, I thought now is the time to buy. However after adding it to the shopping cart several times, I decided against the purchase. I am still using the Cricut Explore and it works fine for me on projects that I do. Just to say that I did shop, I purchased the new Anna's Scoring Wheel Tricks cartridge which was designed for the Maker. This is my first card using one of the image, but my Explore did good enough for me on the scoring. Maybe one day, I will purchase the Maker! HA!

This card design can be found in the Anna Griffin category in Cricut Design Space. I customized the design to suit my needs.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Scoring Wheel Tricks -- Drapery Fold
Anna's Elegant Embellishments - Flourish border is cut 7" wide x 1" high from the solid lavender paper.
Anna's Print and Cut Library Vol. 1 - Two large roses on the front. Smaller roses used inside the card.
Anna's Fantastic FlipCards - Butterfly cut 1".
Inside card:
Anna's Summer Soirees - BBQ Label is cut 5.5" wide from the purple patterned paper. The white label is cut 5.25" wide from the white paper.
Anna's Lace Cards and Embellishments - Sentiment "With Loving Thoughts" is written with the Cricut Lavender pen on the white label.

Inside the card!

Cuttlebug Matelasse folder is used on the Purple patterned paper on front of card. The Matelasse Border is used on the light purple strip on front of card.
Happy Birthday sentiment circle is from an Anna Griffin cardmaking kit.
Lots of pop-dots used on front.

I am pleased with the results of the card! Hope you enjoy!

Another Christmas Card in July

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing another Christmas Card in July. It always helps me to get an early start on making my Christmas cards. You know it is only 5 months until Christmas!! Where has this year gone!

Papers are Colorbok white, Recollections shades of blue, and patterned paper is from DCWV Four Seasons paper pad. Choosing paper takes awhile for me, but I am well pleased with the colors and papers on this card.
Card is Dreaming Tree Silent Night Bendi Card. For more interest, I chose to add glitter snowflakes to the white paper. The snowflake svg is from Dreaming Tree Snowflake Tag. I cut 4 differents sizes of snowflakes and glued them on at random.

Hope you enjoy! Thanks for your visits and comments!
