Time To Celebrate..Happy Birthday

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It has been awhile since I have posted on my blog. Today I am sharing a birthday card using a Cut and Emboss die that I recently purchased. Card is 5" x 6 1/2".

Anna Griffin Corner Pocket Dies - The white corner pocket is cut and embossed using my Cuttlebug machine. This set includes three dies. This die set is made for the Empress Embossing machine, but I have now cut and embossed two of the dies. The third die is too large for the Cuttlebug. Does that mean that I will have to buy an Empress?

Cricut Cartridges:

Card is cut 10" wide x 6.5" high from white cardstock. Yellow patterned paper is cut 4.75" wide x 6.25" high.
Anna's Window Box Cards - Time to Celebrate is cut 1.715" wide x 3.25" high. Two of the yellow roses with the small blue flowers are cut 2.153" wide x 2.75" high with one cut using flip feature. Middle rose is cut smaller, but I did not record size.
Anna's Vintage Florals - Iris is cut 2.89" wide x 4" high.
Anna's Soiree Lettering - Butterfly is 1.75" wide x .831" high.

Feel Better Soon

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
 
I have been playing along with the pretty sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches and this is what I came up with. The card base is from a package of purchased Recollections Ivory cards and envelopes that measures 5" x 6 1/2".  I used the 6 1/2" as the width of the card. The pretty patterned paper is from K&Company Susan Winget SW Harvest double-sided paper. 

Cricut Cartridges:
Using Insert Shapes in Design Space the square is sized to 6.25" wide x 4.75" high rectangle for the card mat layer.
Anna's Elegant Embellishments 2 - Tag is cut 4.50" wide x 3.065" high using Recollections yellow and purple papers.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards 2 - Sentiment "Feel Better Soon" is written on the yellow tag with the Cricut Midnight pen.
Flower Shoppe - 3D Flower #M3DAA8 Larger purple flower in the center is cut 1.50" wide and again at 1.25" wide. The two yellow and two smaller purple flowers are cut at 1.25" wide and again at 1.00" high. I sprayed each flower with a bit of water, crumpled the flower, and let dry before shaping and gluing together.

Cuttlebug Polka Dots folder is used on the patterned paper background for dimension.
Recollections pearls are added in center of each flower. Sentiment tag is pop-dotted on card.

The patterned paper pad has been in my stash for a long time. I like the results of the colors!

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I have enjoyed time in my craft room today and will share the card that I have just finished. Card measures 5" x 7" and I used pretty scrap papers from Anna Griffin.

Cuttlebug:

Card for a Red Hat Lady

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I am sharing another card made for a Red Hat Lady! Card measures 5" x 7" when folded. The double-sided purple/lavender card stock used for the base of card is from The Paper Company. It has red and purple fibers throughout the sheet. I have had this paper a long time and thought it would be perfect for a Red Hat Lady. Other papers are Recollections.

Darling Dress Greeting Card SVG was purchased from Dreaming Tree. You can purchase the SVG here. I cut images at sizes that were brought into Cricut Design Space with the Cricut Maker. Leo has a great video showing the construction of the card! This is a beautiful design which can be made with many different color and paper combinations!

Cuttlebug Kassie's Brocade embossing folder was used on the red papers of the dress.

Small gemstones are added for the necklace. A button from my Red Hat Lady stash is used on the inside corner. I combined variegated purple and red crinkle ribbons to make the bow. 

Loving the looks of this one!

Happy Mother's Day

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

With Mother's Day fast approaching, I wanted to make a card for my daughter. Card measures 7" wide x 5" high. Cricut Red and green cardstock, Recollections Shimmer Cardstock, and Recollections black cardstock are used on the project.

I have Cricut Access but I noticed there are many free Happy Mother's Day images available this week in Cricut Design Space. If you need a last minute card, check out those free images!

Cricut Cartridges:
Using Shapes, I changed the square into a 7" wide x 10" high rectangle and attached the score line to make the card. Also using Shapes, I cut the white rectangle mat 6.87" wide x 4.87" high.
Best Mom Ever Phrases - Happy Mother's Day phrase is cut 6.62" wide x 4.62" high. 
 
I used the left over negative piece of the papers as a template to position the red, green, and black cut out pieces in approximate position. This worked out good for me with out all the guess work of it lining up correctly.

I like how the card turned out! Hope you enjoy! Thanks for your visits and comments!

Red/ Purple Red Hat Lady

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I am back with a pretty card for a Red Hat Lady! When the card first became available at Dreaming Tree, my thoughts turned to Red Hat Lady! I finally found time to play with this wonderful design.
Papers are Recollections, The Paper Company, and Colorbok. Of course in Red Hat Society fashion, colors are red and purple.

The Dreaming Tree - High Heel Greeting Card measures 5" high x 3.5" wide. A big Thank You to Leo and team for this awesome freebie design.  I will be making this design again. I am sure when the Red Hat Ladies see the card, each lady in our group will want one!

Cricut Cartridge:
Font is Chloe for the words Happy Birthday.  I was unable to get the provided font in the svg file to work correctly....probably something that I did wrong.

I added extra flower cuts to be able to use red and purple for the flowers. Purple rhinestones applied to flowers on card.

I love the results of the card! Hope you enjoy! Thanks for your visits and comments!

My First Collar Fold Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Looking at cards on Pinterest, I chose the Collar Fold Card to be the next challenge with my friend Cathy. I noticed this card style is also called Peek a Boo Card. Sometimes I get carried away just looking at the beautiful and inspiring cards. I should be using that time to actually make a card!

Needing a pretty double-sided paper for this card, I chose these pretty patterned papers from some K&Company paper pads. 

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Window Box Cards - Sentiment You Are In My Thoughts
Anna's Window Ledge Cards - Roses cut 2.371" wide x 1.8" high. I cut off the white rose.

Sentiment is from Anna Griffin Fancy Flip Card kit.

My First Screen Divider Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
For this card, my friend Cathy challenged me to make a Screen Divider Card. This is another new card style for me. I chose to make a Spring birthday card for a friend. I looked at tutorials and card examples on Pinterest. I followed along with the video directions by Dawn O. Papers are Colorbok white, Recollections green, and Anna Griffin patterned paper.

Rather than cutting the card and panels using a hand cutter, I added the measurements in Cricut Design Space and let my Cricut Maker do its magic!

Cricut Cartridges:
Using Insert Shapes in Cricut Design Space, I added a square and sized it to 11" wide x 5 1/2" high. It is scored at 2 3/4", 5 1/2", and 8 1/4". Fold card in center, then outer sections back on itself.
Insert Shapes for the panels - 2.25" wide x 4" high for patterned paper panel, 2.42" wide x  4.15" high for the green panels.
Lacy Labels  - Label #M3D540 - I used a portion of the larger label of the group and the slice feature to remove the lower part of the four white sections. I did not have a suitable punch so I tried it with my Cricut. 

Anna's Vintage Florals - Carolina 2 -Larger group of flowers, Clusters - white and pink group.
Anna's Vintage Phrases - Happy Birthday and Fun with Friends
Anna's Planner - Rose Dot Flag cut 2.25" wide x 1.859" high
Anna's Fantastic FlipCards - Butterfly 1.15" wide x 1.162" high

Martha Stewart Swirling Lace Edge Punch used on the top of the screen divider.

I like the way this turned out. Of course, I had to use my favorite colors - pink and green. I think it will be pretty displayed on a desk or tabletop. Hope you like it and maybe you are inspired to try this different card style.
