Celebrate/Birthday


Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Wow! We have received snow twice in January. The temperature has been below freezing for the past couple of days. This is quite unusual for my area. While the snow is pretty, I do not like cold weather! A good time to stay in and play with the Cricut! With several recently purchased Anna Griffin cartridges, I have been staying busy.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Ribbons and Bows - This is first time to play with this cartridge. The bow card is found in the Cricut Make it Now section. It is cut 9.991" wide x 7.021" high without the envelope. Patterned papers are from Anna's collections. Other papers are white Colorbok and Recollections pink paper. My bow is cut 4" wide x 2.054" high...not as large as shown in directions. 
Anna's Splendid Soiree - Mandrin Tag is cut 2.226" wide x .694" high.
Anna's Gracious Giftables Bonus Content - Celebrate is written with the Cricut midnight pen on the tag. I added the tag to my card--it is not shown on the Make It Now card.
Inside the card:
Anna's Sophisticated  Soiree  - Flourish Label is cut 4.5" wide x 2.847" high from the white paper.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards 2 - Happy Birthday to You is written on the flourish label using the midnight pen.

I like the way this turned out! Of course, it has pinks! Hope you enjoy!

Happy Birthday

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

With the cold weather we have been having, I have been playing in my craft room. This card is cut from pink Recollections paper and measures 4 1/4" wide x 5 1/2" high.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Flourish Cards and Embellishments - Flourish card is cut 8.50" wide x 5.527" high without the included envelope. This is my first try using this Anna Griffin image. 
Anna's Fantastic Flip Cards - These are Print and Cut images..love the flowers! Large double flower is 2.75" wide x 2.396" high. Single flower is 1.75" wide x 1.74" high. Corners cut 1.53" wide x 1.523" high.
Inside of card:
Anna's Summer Soirees - Pool label is cut 3.25" wide x 4.202"high. I recently bought several Anna Cartridges and this is first image to use from this cartridge.
Anna's Fantastic Flip Cards - Sentiment Happy Birthday is written with the Cricut Pink Crystal pen on the pool label. I added an extra flower on the label.

I purchased Anna Griffin Fancy Flips Card Making Kit & Cutting Dies from HSN before I actually got the cartridge. The cartridge kept selling out. I was so happy to finally get the digital images. Guess what.. I have not used the kit!! Well, for this project, the sentiment on the front is from the kit. I spent too much money for the kit to sit on the shelf!!

I love the way this turned out! Hope you enjoy! Thanks for your visits and comments!

Print and Cut Birthday Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It has been a while since I have posted on my blog. December was a busy month! With a graduation and Christmas wedding in my family, I found little time to blog. I made some Christmas cards but I have not shared yet. Today I am back with my first card of 2018!

Cricut Cartridges:
Alexis Mattox Quick Cut Cards - Card is cut 8.50" wide x 5.50" high using one of the blue papers from Recollections Blue Ombre paper pack. 
Snow Angel - Snowy Village Background is cut 4" wide x 5.25" high. This is my first time to use one of the pretty print and cut images from this cartridge. I added the Girl and Squirrel image (.878" wide x 1.486" high) on the background image using the flatten feature in Cricut Design Space. This allowed the two images to print as one image. New try with that feature too!
Snowflake - cut 2 different sizes- Small snowflake is glued to the top of background and second is used inside the card.
Using Pen Pal Text, Warm Wishes is written with the Cricut Turquoise pen on a 2.514' wide x .611" high inserted shape.
Inside the card:
Anna's Lace Cards and Embellishments - Sentiment "With Loving Thoughts" is written with turquoise pen.

I like the way my January birthday card turned out. Hope you enjoy!
