Butterfly Box

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Do you like butterflies! When I saw this pretty Dreaming Tree project, I had to download the free SVG and make it right away!

Patterned papers are from K&Company Classic K 12 x 12 Paper pad. I love the pretty double-sided papers in this pack. Cricut Pearl Paper is used for the top of the box. This cut great on my Cricut machine and has a pretty shimmer.

Cricut Font Chloe - Love is written on the label with the Cricut Very Berry pen.

The little box will be good for a gift or candies. Also, I think a battery operated tea light will be pretty in it. Sorry, my photo did not show the flickering light.


I really like how this turned out! Thank you Dreaming Tree for the beautiful SVG.

Thanks your visits and comments!

Card for a Red Hat Lady

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
Time to have a little fun with Red and Purple! I wanted to make a card for a Red Hat Lady. The pretty dark purple paper reverses to a light purple and works well for me. It is from The Paper Company and I purchased it a long time ago at a clearance price. Red paper is Recollections.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Gracious Giftables - Teapot Holder is cut 17.73" wide x 10.6" high. This is the size recommended on Anna's blog which also includes a gift card image for the inside and a band to go around the card. This makes a large teapot, about 7 3/4" wide. I will size down the teapot image when I make it again. Red Roses are print and cut...size is 3.25" wide. I cut two with one image on flip. I did not record the size of the smaller roses used inside the card.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards 2 --Tag is cut 1.837" wide x 3"high.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards -- Happy Birthday Friend is written with the Cricut Midnight pen on the above mentioned tag.
Anna's Elegant Embellishments 2 -- Tag is cut 4.5" wide x 3.065" high. This is used inside the card.
Anna's Flourish Cards and Embellishments - Special Day Sentiment is written with the Midnight pen on inside tag.
I cut two lid images to have one for the backside. I used Cuttlebug Anna Griffin Woven Diamonds folder for the embossing.
Red Crinkle Ribbon from DL.ART is used to tie the sentiment tag on the teapot. Thanks Diana for the pretty ribbons!

Flowers in Vase

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I have been playing with paper again! I wanted to try one of the projects that I recently purchased.
Patterned papers are K&Company, Colorbok white, Recollections yellow, and Cricut for the greens.

Cricut Cartridges:
Dreaming Tree Springtime Gifts - This was available in the Cricut March Mystery Box. I am happy to see some of Dreaming Tree SVGs in Cricut Design Space.
Butterfly Flower and Vase is cut 39.75" wide x 20.842" high. This is the size that comes into Cricut Design Space when the image is loaded. Score marks are already attached which makes it easy to work with the images.

Finished size of project is 14"H x 4"W x 4" D.  I used  a bit of inking and added pearls. I received the white crinkle ribbon from Diana at DL.ART from one of her contests. Thank you Diana!

I love the way this turned out! Hope you enjoy!

Mother's Day Explosion Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
 
I have another Mother's Day card to share with you. After viewing pretty explosion cards and some are called pop out explosion cards, I wanted to try making one. There are many tutorials available on the construction of this card style.
 
My project started with a card base cut at 4.50" x 9", when folded makes a 4.50" x 4.50" card. The pretty double-sided papers are from Anna Griffin Rose Medley pack. The paper insert is cut 8.50" x 8.50". This is the folded part that is used inside.

Cricut Cartridges:
Fantastic Flip Cards - Heart Embellishment is cut 3.285" x 3.054". I cut 2 of the cut out hearts and one of the solid hearts. Sentiment "I Love You" is written on an inserted 3.5" wide x 2.25" rectangle of the pink solid paper which is used inside the card.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards - Happy Mother's Day is written with the Cricut Midnight pen on the scallop pink heart embellishment.
Anna's Print then Cut Library - Rose is used on the Happy Mother's Day heart.
 
I cut a 1.25" wide green band to wrap around the card. 
Cricut Create a Critter - Word Mom. This is applied to the second heart embellishment. It is pop-dotted on the band. 

Outside of card with the band.

I really like the way this turned out and of course, I love the pinks and greens! Hope you enjoy!

Mother's Day Window Box Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
 
Yay! I received the new Anna Griffin digital cartridge!  Of course, I had to play! Papers are from Anna Griffin Amelie.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Window Box Cards - The box card image comes into design space at 10.406" wide x 8.753" high. The box is cut from the double-sided yellow paper.
Large scroll embellishment is cut 2.603' wide x 4.125" high. I also cut a smaller scroll but did not record the size.
Flowers are print and cut and turned out so pretty. I used geraniums, roses, and camellias of varying sizes.
Anna's Lovely Layered Cards - Happy Mother's Day is written on the white mat using the Cricut Honeysuckle Pen. It does not show well, but I liked the pen color with the paper colors.

Cuttlebug:
Anna Griffin Matelasse embossing folder is used on the white mats on the sides of the boxes for added dimension.

Side view of the box.
 
I love the way this turned out. I will be making more of this card style. Hope you enjoy!
