Emma, over at My Creative Time, posted a challenge today to create a Chinese New Year project on the Imagine. 2011 is the year of the rabbit, so I decided to make a rabbit card. I was originally going to use a pattern from an Imagine cartridge for the rabbit, but none of the ones I own have a red floral pattern, which I wanted to go with my gold embossing. Instead, I used patterned paper with the "cut only" feature. The rabbit is from the Easter cartridge, cut at 3".
For the "Chinese New Year", I used the "print only feature" and printed this at 0.5" from the Designer's Calendar Cricut cartridge. After printing, I punched it out with a ticket punch.
