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!

Winterscape Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I was happy to see the Cricut cartridges that came in the July Digital Mystery Box. Did you know that Dreaming Tree has a Christmas Collection available through Cricut? Wow! I just had to purchase it!

This is my first project using the Christmas Collection. It is called Winterscape Card. When the project was brought into Cricut Design Space, I left the size as it was - 34.381" wide x 11" high which includes an envelope. I did not cut the envelope at this time. My finished box is approximately 6 1/4" wide x 10 inches high. The size shown on the Dreaming Tree website is 9.5"H x 6"W x 1.75"D.  I plan to add a battery operated light inside the box and use as a Christmas decoration.

Die Cuttin Divas - Ch. 326 Sci Fi

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It is time for another fun challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas! Ch. 326 is Sci Fi (Aliens, UFO, Space).  I had no idea what I would make until I found this cute spaceship image in Cricut Design Space. I am using papers from the stash.

Cricut Cartridges:
Crazy Cute Cards - Spaceship Card is cut 25.68" wide x 11.095" high. Size includes the envelope. Finished card size measures 9.75" high. 
Stencil - Blast off is cut 1.50" wide x . 699" high. 

Card opened.

Just a simple card, but I think it turned out cute! I have no need for this card at present time, but Happy Birthday or any appropriate sentiment can be added on the black section. Great for a younger guy or maybe an older guy!
