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.
Anna's Summer Soirees - Pool label is cut 4.25" wide x 3.286" high.
Anna's Garden Cards & Embellishments - Warmest Wishes sentiment is written with Cricut Midnight pen on the label. This is used inside the card.

This is an easy card style. I enjoy using double-sided papers and this is a great card for that!

Easter Cards

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I have looked at many images in Cricut Design Space trying to decide what I wanted to put on an Easter card. Remembering an Anna Griffin Cut and Emboss folder in my stash, this is what I decided to do. I liked the design so well, that I chose to make 2 similar cards using the same Cuttlebug folder. Cards measures 5" x 7" cut from Recollections cardstock.

My First Circular Side Step Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

This is another fun card style that my friend Cathy challenged me to make. It is my first attempt at making the Circular Side Step Card. Several tutorials are available on Pinterest. I followed the tutorial at Beccy's Place. Thanks for the good instructions.

Paper is from Prima Tales of You &Me 12 x 12 double sided paper pad.

Cricut Cartridges:
Insert Shapes - Circle for the base of card is cut 6.5" x 6.5". I used a hand trimmer for cutting the cutting line and a scoreboard for the score lines.
Anna's Window Ledge Cards - Rose Group of 3 - 3.023" wide x 2.2" high. Single rose is clipped off of another image from same cartridge.

Sentiment is from Anna Griffin Fancy Flip Card kit.

Of course, I wanted pinks and frills. Lace is from Michael's Adhesive Trims. Burlap butterfly and pearls from my stash drawer. Green bow is DMC Memory Thread. Flowers are pop-dotted for dimension.

I like the way this turned out. I am really glad that I took the challenge and may try making another card.
