Sending You Love Mother's Day

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing a Mother's Day card. Since losing my Mom in February, this type of card is kinda hard to make. Card is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" white cardstock. I am using patterned scrap papers from DCWV Fresh Floral Stack and solids are Recollections. I am using Mary's CARDZ TV Sketch 8. I will be giving this card to my grandkids to give their Mom.

Cricut Cartridge:
Using Insert Shapes in Cricut Design Space, the floral paper is cut 4" wide x 5.25" high. The purple circle pattern paper is cut 1.5" wide x 5.25" high. Yellow strip is cut .75" wide x 5.25" high. Green mat is cut 2.5" wide x 3.25" high and the white mat is cut 2.25" wide x 3" high.
Spring Fling  - Flower Bunch is cut 2.21" wide.
Florals Embellished  - Happy Mother's Day is cut 3.5" wide x 1.89" high. This is used inside the card.

Sentiment "Sending you love" is from Mary's Encouraging Thoughts stamp set at CARDZ TV. I used a purple ink. Thank you Mary for the pretty stamps and sketches!

Spring / Easter Bunny

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I am been playing with Spring/Easter cards! Always need a few! This card is 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" white cardstock. Pink and green speak Spring and Easter to me- but of course, I love those colors all the time! Papers are from Recollections. I am playing along with pretty Sketch 16 from Mary at CARDZ TV.

Cricut Cartridges:
Winter Woodland - White and green label is cut 3.35" wide x 2.75" high.
Celebrate with Flourish - Rabbit scene is cut 2.25" wide x 1.73" high.
Bits and Pieces - Banner is cut 2.18" wide x .8" high.

Cuttlebug:
Anna Griffin Regal Braid - Stripe paper at top.
Swiss Dots - Pink paper at bottom.
Anna Griffin Aviary - white label
Anna Griffin Modern Vines Border on the green strip of paper. I used one half of the border and you only see one embossed image on each side of the white label. 

The white label is pop-dotted on the card. A white Gelly Roll pen is used for the stitching look on the banner and rabbit. Pink Recollections gemstones complete the look!
