Mother's Day

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I finished another Mother's Day card. Above photo shows the inside of the card with the floral popup.Finished card is 5" x 7".  Papers include Colorbok white, Recollections for solid colors, and K&Company patterned paper.

I have wanted to use this pretty Mother's Day Bouquet Pop Up Card SVG file from Dreaming Tree. I purchased the bundle and this is the first project from the bundle that I have made. There is an excellent video showing the making of the card.

Front of Card

The SVG file includes a Happy Mother's Day phrase for the front of the card. I chose to use the phrase from the Darling Dress Greeting Card file.

Crinkle Ribbon Bow with the tiny flower is from Karen at Little Scrap Pieces. Gemstones are from my stash. Pink inking used on some images.

I like the results of the card! Hope you enjoy!

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!
