Imagination Monday with My Creative Time


It's Imagination Monday over at My Creative Time, and Emma asked us to create a Mother's Day card. Since I've already made a card for my own mom, I decided to make one for my best friend, who is a fabulous mother of three! Of course, I had to use my favorite new Imagine cartridge, All Wrapped Up, and stamps from My Creative Time's "Mom You ROCK". I love this set! It's great for Mother's Day, but as you can see by the sentiment on the outside of my card, it has many other uses too!

My card is 4 1/2" square. The Russian doll is cut at 3.3" in layers. The background papers are layers for a card on this cartridge. I originally cut out the entire card at 4.2" with all of its layers, but then I decided that I would like to change it up a bit. So I used just a couple of the layers, and I cut them down to 3 3/4". That left me a strip to put on the inside of my card. Behind them is a 4" square flood filled with a pink from this cartridge. I printed another piece of this to run through a die with my Cuttlebug for my sentiment tag. I used my own 8 1/2" x 4 1/4'" blue cardstock for the card base.


Be sure to stop by My Creative Time for some more Imagination fun!

I was looking at the same Mother's Day cutout from The Simply Charmed cartridge and couldn't decide if it would look good but you've made up my mind, I love the little Nesting Doll you created. Thanks for sharing.
