Die Cuttin' Divas - Ch. 330 Back to School

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It is time for another fun challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas. As first day of school is fast approaching or maybe schools have started in your area, we are having a Back to School challenge this week! I chose to do a scrapbook page for one of my grandsons. Our school has not started yet, so I will add photos later. Papers are Pressed Petals School Days. I used the blue and gold colors to represent the school's colors.

Cricut Cartridges:
Family Album - Back to School Scrapbook Layout is cut 11.75" wide x 11.75" high. The images are placed on the 12" x 12" page of striped paper.
K-12 - 7th Grade is cut 2.891" wide x 3.111" high.
Plantin Schoolbook - FA is cut 1.085" wide x .665" high. This represents the name of the school.

We look forward to seeing your projects.

Fantastic Flipcards - 6

 Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing the sixth flipcard in my series of making the Fantastic Flipcards. Do you notice the pretty paper? When I saw the pretty double-sided Anna Griffin cardstock available on Cricut, I just had to purchase a few choices. This is the Rose Medley paper pack. Love it! Card measures 5" x 7".

Cricut Cartridge:
Anna's Fantastic Flipcards - Card is cut 11:03" wide x 6.943" high. This is the cut size without the included envelope. Roses cut 2.5" wide x 3.35" high. I cut two same size with one on flip. Single rose is cut 1.75" wide x 1.772" high, again cutting two with one on flip. I glued the flip rose to the back side of the original rose and then pop-dotted on card. When looking at roses inside of card, you will see the printed rose rather than the white paper of back side of rose.
Sentiments are written with the Cricut Midnight pen.
Butterfly is cut 1.50" wide x 1.33" high and again with image on flip.
Corner is cut 1.25" wide x 1.269" high. I cut two corners.

Fantastic Flip Cards - 5

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing the fifth card in my series of making Anna's Fantastic Flip Cards with the Cricut. I am loving this cartridge! There are ten different card style openings. Of course, each card style can have different looks about it. For this card, I sized it down to approximately 5" x 6 1/2" rather than the 5" x 7" cards. The pretty double-sided paper is from K&Company. The above photo is of the card standing with a slight opening.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Fantastic Flipcards - This card is cut 10.36" wide x 6.485" high. "Happy Birthday" and "A Note to say" are written on the mats with the Cricut Midnight pen. Bow used inside the card is also from the same cartridge. I added the white mat so a personal message can be written.
Anna's Soiree Lettering - Flowers on front. Larger flower is cut 2.50" wide x 1.50" high and smaller one is cut 1.75" wide x 1.054" high. I cut the flowers from some of the same blue patterned paper as the card. Love how they turned out!
