School Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I am playing along with a few challenges today. It was fun checking all the available Back to School images in Cricut Access and then choosing some images that I have not used before. Card measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". Papers are from my stash.

Cricut Cartridges:
Wall Decor and More - 123 Card is cut 5.50" x 8.50" from the blue cardstock. First try with this cartridge. 
Chore Chart - Homework is cut 5.25" wide x 4" high from the paper with the lines. That image includes the book, pencil and white background. Also, first time using this cartridge.
Create A Friend - Back to School is cut 2.173" wide x 1.97" high and layered on the book.
Kate's ABC's - ABC flower is cut 1.317" wide x .744" high.

 As mentioned, this is my first try cutting the card. It is folded at the score line which lets the numbers stand up. I cut two of the inside liners for the card from the yellow. The second one is placed on the back side of card to cover the area where the numbers were cut out. Looks ok to me!

Thank you Center Step Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I enjoyed making my previous Center Step Card and I wanted to make a purple one. Card base is 5 1/2" x 11" cut from Bazzill cardstock, then a few score and cut lines. There are tutorials available for making the Center Step Card. Patterned paper is Anna Griffin. I hesitated about cutting the pretty patterned paper for the image, but I do like the results of the colors.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Summer Soirees  - Quilt - Place mat is cut 4.5" wide x 5.5" high from the patterned paper.
Anna's Fantastic Flip Cards - Purple flower is Print and cut image. I cut it 2.75" wide. Bow is cut 2.25" wide from a second patterned paper.
Anna's Lace Cards & Embellishments  - Butterfly is cut 1.5" wide.
Anna's Sophisticated Soirees - Floral Label is cut from white Recollections cardstock at 3.75" wide.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards 2 - Sentiment Heartfelt Thanks is written on the Floral Label with the Cricut Lavender Pen. For inside of card, sentiment Thanks for All You do is also written with the lavender pen on an inserted 4.50" wide x 3.056" rectangle.
Anna's Elegant Embellishments - Flourish is cut 2.707" wide x .888" high and placed on the white mat. 

Images pop-dotted on card for dimension. Recollection purple gemstone added to bow.

Sea Shell Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
Here I am playing around with a Beach theme. Papers are Recollections yellow and turquoise cardstock and Colorbok white cardstock. Card measures 5" x 7".
This is my play with one of the cards that can be found in Cricut Design Space. Choose Projects, Choose All Categories, Choose Anna Griffin, then search for the Anna Griffin Sea Shell Card.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Summer Soirees - Bench Folded Card is cut 6.83" wide x 9.955" high. Beach Doily is cut 3/264" wide x 3.273" high. Instructions say to cut the doily but when the project is brought into Design Space, the doily image is not showing. This size worked fine for me.
Anna's Elegant Embellishments 2 - hello is written with the Candy Crystal pen on the white doily.
Anna's Soiree Lettering - Flourish. I cut two with one being cut using flip feature. I had to add the extra flourish...only one is showing in the design space project.
White doily is pop-dotted on the card.
I am pleased with the results. Hope my friend will like it!
