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!
